Functions & Parties

Naturally, as an arts centre we really know how to manage an event! But did you know that we've also played host to all kinds of social occasions including wedding receptions, anniversary and birthdays? 

We love a challenge and can provide dynamic spaces, technical know-how and lots of personal touches to make your event a special and memorable occasion for you and your guests.

Wendy and I wanted to write and thank you properly for all the help … you and all the staff at MAC were brilliant, the room looked absolutely stunning and the food was prepared and presented just as we had imagined.
