Hobbiton Movie Set announces new event venue


Hobbiton Movie Set has added The Hub to its business events offering, and expects to add new features to the Hobbtion experience.

The Hub, Hobbiton’s architecturally designed head office building situated at the top of the visitor carpark at The Shires Rest, was constructed to house the business core operational teams under one roof with staff training facilities and full catering kitchen suitable to cater lunch for all employees. The 1600 sq m venue’s two conjoining rooms, named the Romney and Angus rooms after the variety of livestock breeds that are farmed on the surrounding Alexander farm, can be used separately or be combined for a flexible meeting space.  The Hub can host up to 130 guests in various configurations, with breakout spaces for welcome drinks, meals or meetings available, all with stunning views overlooking the surrounding farmland and rolling green hills.

It joins fully themed structure The Millhouse as the latest offerings. “We are very excited to launch The Millhouse and The Hub to the business events market,” Russell Alexander, CEO of Hobbiton Movie Set, said. “These venues are fully operational and ready for use, complementing the existing tourism offering here on site.”
