This is one of IET Birmingham: Austin Court’s most special spaces. The exposed brickwork, period beams and vaulted ceiling give the room a unique character that never fails to impress visitors.

When you put this together with the stunning views of our landscaped, courtyard garden, the outstanding AV facilities and the versatility of the layout options, it makes the perfect room for a wide range of events.
