Introducing the XCentre, a unique training venue on Exeter’s prestigious Quayside
The XCentre is a distinctive venue available to hire for a range of events and conferences. Managed by local brain injury charity, Headway Devon, the XCentre is a perfect venue for running courses, meetings and events. What’s more all profits from rentals will be used to support the on-going survival of this fantastic historic space and Headway Devon’s services for local people with disabilities.
The XCentre is a very special space, originally built in the early 1700s as a wool-drying shed, the centre is a central part of Exeter’s trade history and was sympathetically converted ten years ago into a state-of-the-art learning skills centre.
The centre is easily accessible by road and rail, and is a short walk from Exeter’s Cathedral and Quay multi-storey car park.
With a range of training spaces, flexible layout and central location, the XCentre could be the perfect venue for your next event.
Our spaces and facilities
The centre is able to offer exceptional resources for trainers and course leaders, including a fully-fitted kitchen, an IT suite with seven computer workstations and internet, a range of projector and display options, and an interactive whiteboard. The main spaces for hire are our airy conference room, with impressive vaulted ceiling and original beams, which can seat up to fifty delegates in a theatre-style configuration; and a pleasant ground floor room which is able to accommodate smaller meetings of up to twenty people.
