EMRFCA Alternative Venues Graphic Version 1 (2)


Throughout the East Midlands we have over 17 venues for hire and each one has its own unique characteristics.

The common denominator is that they are all part of the East Midlands’ ‘Volunteer Estate’. In essence, they are the sites which house your local Royal Naval Reserve, Army Reserve and Royal Auxiliary Air Forces. This means all of our sites are 100% secure.

Alternative Venues East Midlands forms part of East Midlands Reserve Forces and Cadets Association. We are ‘not for profit’ so any hire charges you pay are used by us to improve facilities for the Reserves.

Our venues are currently used by a wide spectrum of clientele for a variety of events and activities, including training spaces for various industry needs; wedding receptions and private parties; slimming groups and boxing clubs to name but a few!

Contact us and we will discuss with you personally what you are trying to plan. We always endeavour to accommodate your needs and will advise on which of our venues would be most suitable.
