A venue as unique and special as your day
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 £3million refurbishment, the Lysaght Institute has been transformed into an exciting venue fit for the 21st century.
Situated on the first floor of the building the Lysaght Hall is the perfect venue for large celebrations, catering for up to 180 guests for a wedding breakfast and evening party.
The Lysaght Hall features the original arched ceiling and balcony area which runs the full length of the room, ideal for drinks and wedding photography. The Lysaght Hall also has a large reception area with an additional balcony.
Situated on the ground floor the Lysaght Suite offers a more intimate space for smaller celebrations. The Lysaght suite caters for up to 50 guests for a wedding breakfast and evening party.
This new venue includes a unique feature wall charting the history of Newport, and has access to landscape gardens for drinks and wedding photography.
