Bringing Newport together

Lysaght Institute is a venue unlike any other.  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 Art Deco period character, with many features including large balcony areas and landscaped gardens remaining, creating a unique venue with a strong Newport heritage.

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

We boast a range of flexible suites to suit every requirement, from 1 to 1 interviews to meetings for 180 to dance classes for 180, along with a host of extra facilities to make your community activity easy and enjoyable.

Our facilities include:

  • Complimentary WiFi
  • TV and Interactive whiteboard
  • Flipchart
  • Projector
  • Air conditioning
  • PA System
  • Crèche open from 7.00am to 6.00pm
  • IT training suite with 6 computer stations
  • Complimentary parking
  • Outdoor areas including 2 large balconies and landscaped gardens
  • Disabled access and facilities including lift access, induction hearing loop, wheelchair access to all rooms, separate disabled toilets.

Outstanding value

Lysaght Institute is run as a social enterprise, which means we are able to offer very competitive rates for all our facilities.  Plus by using the Lysaght Institute you are further supporting your local community,  with all profits re-distributed to subsidise other local activities.
