Rivervale Barn For Corporate Events and Conferences

John and Moyra Illsley had a vision – to create a retreat style events venue where people can get away from the hustle of the city and come together in a beautiful setting. So they created Rivervale Barn, a contemporary event space set in rural Hampshire that provides a unique and memorable setting for any style of event.

Opening in 2009 it has hosted a variety of events over the last 4 years – from large-scale conferences, corporate events and weddings to smaller more intimate creative workshops. Traditionally designed with a contemporary edge, the versatile space means you can create any number of experiences for your guests. Its rural setting enables your guests to really get away from it all - giving them the space to think, learn and align.

There is high speed Wifi and 3-phase electricity throughout Rivervale Barn so you can stay connected and implement your AV needs. The specialist events team, with many years experience in putting on conferences and events, will be with you from the initial enquiry to final execution. They can help you with all aspects of your event to take the stress away from you – they know how to create the unique experience you are looking for and only work with trusted partners and suppliers.

Whilst being nestled in the Hampshire countryside, Rivervale Barn is only 40 minutes from London and 30 minutes from Heathrow making it easy to get to. We hope you can come and experience Rivervale Barn for yourself – we look forward to meeting you!
