The Lyth Building External Artist Impression at Brackenhurst Campus

New conference facilities

The Lyth Building, which will open in 2020, is located right at the heart of Brackenhurst Campus. Brackenhurst is situated just 14 miles from Nottingham city centre, close to the town of Southwell. The building is named after Philip Lyth, the first Principal of the Nottinghamshire Farm Institute at Brackenhurst in 1949 and author of numerous books on rural history.

As the University’s centre of learning for Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences, Brackenhurst Campus is the crown jewel in NTU’s commitment to sustainability.

A countryside setting

The flexibility of the Lyth Building makes it the perfect choice for meetings, conferences, training, teambuilding, exhibitions, banqueting and events. Surrounded by 500 acres of beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside, it lends itself to organisations looking to present their products or services within a classroom environment or outdoors.
