The Work Place, Conference & Events Venue is a result of the vision of Jane Ritchie (MBE) and the VOLT (Vocational Learning Trust) Charity and owes its success to the creativity and determination of The Work Place Team.
The Work Place is a trading arm of the charity and is a non-profit making organisation investing in the learners of County Durham.
A Space For Everyone
Since opening, we have hosted a variety of events from high profile conferences to smaller networking and training events. The venue provides excellent conference facilities, supported by staff who are very customer focused. This has quickly led to us being established as a first class venue of choice.
The building has been designed with environmental concerns in mind such as solar PV panels and ground source heat pumps.
