The Cut Conference Centre
The Cut Conference Centre is housed within a 13th Century building within walking distance of Shrewsbury's town centre and train station. Nestling in a wildlife garden with the added benefit of a cafe and shop, this venue really is unique. Three rooms are available for hire, all distinguished spaces for your event, business meeting, seminar or training day.
Income from our conference rooms goes directly to wildlife conservation in Shropshire.
The venue is centrally located in Shrewsbury on Abbey Foregate with ample car parking and is easily accessible from the M54 and A5.
Disabled access to all ground floor meeting spaces (Darwin suite and Garden room). Lift access available to the upper floor Abbeygate Hall.
