The natural place to celebrate

Set within the beautiful Millennium Country Park, the Forest Centre provides a memorable setting to gather friends and family to celebrate any occasion. 

We have four private rooms with views over the Park which can be hired at any time. Two of these also include private outside space, as does our Café Bar, which is available for evening-only hire. 

Our friendly, flexible team pride themselves on delivering great service and will attend to every detail, while our in-house caterers ensure delicious food and drink is in plentiful supply.

The Forest Centre has ample parking, and is less than 10 minutes from Junction 13 of the M1.

For those travelling from further afield there are several hotels nearby:

Travelodge, Marston Moretaine – 1 mile away

Premier Inn, A421 – 6 miles away


As a social enterprise and the home of an environmental charity, we’re passionate about operating sustainably and sticking to our green values. By holding your event with us you will be supporting us to plant another 5 million trees in the area.

To talk to someone about holding your event at the Forest Centre, call us on 01234 767037, or send us an email and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.   

Unique alternative to presents

Instead of asking for presents and cards, which you don't really need, why not get your guests to donate money towards trees that can be planted in the Forest, or one of our other appeals instead. Every £20 is one more tree -  imagine the satisfaction of knowing you've helped the Forest to grow, rather than getting a load of socks or smellies!

Simply choose 'More Trees in the Forest' as your cause and fill out a few details about the recipient and it's good to go!
