Celebrate in a Unique Setting
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-opening in November 2012 following a £3 million refurbishment, the Lysaght Institute has been transformed into an exciting venue fit for the 21st century.
Lysaght Hall - Situated on the first floor of the building the Lysaght Hall is the perfect venue for large celebrations, catering for up to 180 guests. The Lysaght Hall features the original arched ceiling and balcony area which runs the full length of the room, ideal for outdoor drinks. The Hall also has a large reception area with an additional balcony.
Lysaght Suite - Situated on the ground floor the Lysaght Suite offers a more intimate space for smaller celebrations for up to 50 guests. This new venue includes a unique feature wall charting the history of Newport, and has access to landscape gardens for drinks and outdoor entertainment.
