Functions & Dinners

The Great Hall on Swansea University’s Bay Campus is one of the finest venues in South Wales in which to host a black tie dinner or a drinks reception.

All of the seating in the state-of-the-art Sir Stanley Clarke Auditorium retracts to create a large flat floor space which offers the perfect backdrop for sit down dinners for circa 300 guests.

The partially demountable stage platform can accommodate an orchestra of up to 50 musicians and our sound and lighting technicians can work with you to help you create the perfect atmosphere for your function or celebration.

The light-filled galleries which run adjacent to the auditorium and offer spectacular views across the Bay are ideal for holding pre-dinner drinks receptions, or work just as well on their own as spaces in which to host smaller functions and gatherings.

Our experienced team of in-house caterers have developed an exciting range of sumptuous three course menus to which you can treat your dinner guests, as well as a delightful selection of canapés and nibbles for more informal occasions.

We have hosted all kinds of dinners and functions in the Great Hall:

  • The Johnny Rocks Memorial Dinner

  • The Academi Hywel Teifi Anniversary Dinner
  • The Institute of Water Awards Dinner
