Newbiggin Sports and Community Centre

At Newbiggin Sport and Community Centre, we have three function rooms available for hire which are all extremely flexible to suit your event. We also have a licensed bar and can provide catering.

Wansbeck Suite
As our main function hall, this suite can be used for many occasions. Weddings, conferences, birthday parties and dance shows have all been held here. We have full staging with surrounding curtain, backdrop, lighting desk and sound system. Our pull-out bleacher seating can accommodate 180 people or you can choose from long or round tables which will seat a maximum of 180 people for a buffet and disco. There is also a licensed bar within the room.

Coquet Suite
This L-shaped room is ideal for small meetings or theatre-style conferences for up to 40 people. We also offer a partition if two smaller areas are required. This room backs onto the Wansbeck Suite so is an ideal changing room for dance shows or a buffet room for weddings or birthdays.

Collingwood Lounge
This medium sized well-lit room has fixed seating around the outside for up to 40 people. It is well suited for smaller functions like christenings or community groups or we can provide a projector and screen for larger meetings.
