By National Memorial Arboretum

Aspects at the National Memorial Arboretum offers a completely unique conferencing proposition. Our award-winning building, opened in 2018 is home to seven flexible spaces, suitable for 10 – 500 guests.

Our location feels a world away but is easily accessible from the A38 just five minutes’ drive with links to the M6 (Toll), M42 and M1. 30 minutes from Derby and Birmingham, it is perfectly placed for homeworking and disparate teams.

More importantly, Aspects is situated within the spectacular backdrop of the National Memorial Arboretum, the Nation’s centre of Remembrance. A 150-acre green, open landscape home to over 25,000 trees punctuated with 400 memorials it is the perfect escape for meetings, conferences and team building this summer.

Each memorial recognises the service and sacrifice of both military and civilian personnel. From the WAS(B) women supplying tea and sandwiches on the front lines of Burma, to the 16,000 men and women who have given their lives since the end of the Second World War.

The Arboretum is home to hundreds of stories, tales of camaraderie, inspirational leadership, heroism in extraordinary circumstances and accounts of sheer strength and resilience.

While many of these stories herald from difficult times, they offer your delegates the opportunity to shift perspective and think differently about the challenges we face in all elements of business, offering a positive inspiration and space for reflection, reconnection, and reinvigoration.

Hear the smile-raising tale of Able Sea Cat Simon aboard the HMS Amethyst; the only cat to receive a naval title, or the inspirational story of Lance Corporate William Coltman; the most decorated non-commissioned office of the First World War, who never fired his rifle.

After a considerable time spent at home, performing unfamiliar tasks, in circumstances we never dreamed of, what could be more powerful than training teams in a place that recognises, the service and sacrifice ordinary people make and continue to make, every single day.
