Where Newport’s history meets modern technology

Lysaght Institute offers a unique environment for all your meeting and conference needs.  Steeped in Newport’s industrial history, Lysaght Institute was built by the firm of John Lysaght Ltd in 1928, as a venue for the Orb Steelworkers and their families to meet and socialise.  The building has retained its original character with many features including large balcony areas and landscaped gardens remaining, creating a unique meeting venue with a strong Newport heritage.

Re-opening in November 2012 following a £3million  refurbishment , the Lysaght Institute has been transformed into an exciting meeting, conference and events venue fit for the 21st century.
