Following a public consultation in 2017, the council decided to move the Book borrowing service from The Wardwick to the Council House. This will take effect from June 2018. As Derby Museums share the The Wardwick Building, it was decided that Derby Museums would have access to the The Wardwick and use it for its own benefit when the book borrowing closes in June 2018. The Museum will use the it until a decision is made as to the long term plan for the entire building (both the Museum and the The Wardwick).

Once Derby Museums have access to The Wardwick, in June 2018, we are going undertake a minor refurbishment, comprising of painting and decorating, new floor and installing amazing museum artefacts on the wall so that by the beginning of October 2018, The Wardwick will be available to hire for meetings and events.

We will be able to host events such as

- Conferences with break out spaces
- Training
- Away Days
- Private parties
- Awards Nights
- Weddings
- Christmas parties
- Christenings and Wakes

The capacity of the The Wardwick is yet to be determined but we expect to be able to host up to 250 people theatre style and up to 200 seated covers for dinner.

If you are interested in hiring this amazing grade 2 listed building for your event (October 2018 onwards) then please contact us and we can discuss with you, the options available.
