Getting access to a large flexible space near the centre of Leicester is almost impossible, until the arrival of the Morningside Arena.

The Arena has over 2,400m2 of flexible space in the main Arena, for product displays, and exhibitions and conferences, as well as awards ceremonies. The Arena has vehicular access for erection of large displays and staging.

There is also 220m2 space available in the first-floor conference suite. That conference suite, in turn, can be easily subdivided into a number of contained separate spaces, ranging in sizes from 40m2 up to 200m2 plus, depending on your needs.

The Arena space is used for work fairs, promotions and large-scale exhibitions.

There is access to a complimentary car parking, close proximity to public transport and in short walking distance to the city centre of Leicester.

It is the home of the national basketball Club champions, the Leicester Riders, and, so, make Morningside Arena the winning venue for your exhibition or conference.


Dinners and evenings

The Morningside Arena provides the largest and most flexible space in the city of Leicester and can be used for dinners, celebrations, weddings, or any other special event. With over 2,440m2 of floor space, the Arena has the capability of staging these events with ease, and with more than ample space for servicing guests, for pre-dinner receptions, and with private rooms for special guests.

The Arena has already staged the 2017 Leicester Mercury Business Awards with over 800 guests and is the host for the Leicester Riders Annual Awards dinners.

There are high quality and flexible catering arrangements available, with specialist support for particular ethnic requirements, supported by a highly motivated and first-class in-house team.

License arrangements mean events timings can be flexible to meet the needs of any groups.

Situated within short walking distance of the Leicester city centre, and with complimentary on-site parking, the venue is also in walking distance of the City and County bus stations and has good public transport access from the inner ring road. There are also over 3000 car park spaces within a half mile of the venue, in addition to spaces on site.



Team Building


Your business needs teamwork to succeed, and the benefits of teamwork have been shown by the sustained success of the Leicester Riders, the anchor tenants of the Morningside Arena.

The Morningside Arena has 3 large courts with a sprung wooden floor, which can be used for a wide range of indoor team building activities, including competitions, and sports challenges, with access for your team also to classrooms, smart boards and superb catering facilities.

You can set up your own inter-mural competitions in a single sport, like basketball, or range of sports, including 5 aside football, and get the input of specialist support from Leicester Riders staff and players, about the characteristics of winning teams, and how team work can deliver results.

The Morningside Arena also has a specialist piece of technology for testing and improving your basketball shooting skills, Dr Dish, a fully programmable and automated basketball shooting machine for challenging staff to improve, while also tracking their performance with detailed analytics.

There is also access to Abbey Park if you really want to challenge staff to outdoor activities.

Located close to the city centre and with access to good public transport, and with complimentary on-site car parking, make Morningside Arena your venue of choice to build and motivate your team.
