Treat any size assembly to something special when hosted at the DEC!
Flexible Size for any Event
Presentation nights, national gatherings, large or small school assemblies, leavers’ dinners and more! Whatever assembly you have to run we have a space ideally suited for you. The Astley Room is ideal for small to midsize groups with its picturesque water and mountain views, while larger groups can have the main arena customised to suit whatever size. Intimate for 1,300 or stadium seating for 4,875, assemblies of any size are a breeze at the DEC. Free on-site parking for over 1,200 means all your guests have to worry about is what to wear!
Customisation is King
We can theme the entire venue for the most impressive leavers’ dinner ever, create an intimate atmosphere for 100 guests or open the arena for an inspiring gathering of thousands. Our entire suite of staging, furniture and audio/visual equipment, including setup, is provided as part of your booking. Need catering? Our large, modern kitchen awaits with pre-set menus, or you can customise an offering to your specific needs. We know everyone is different, so we’re ready to make our space into your space for a truly memorable assembly.
