Birnam Arts Centre

Station Road, Birnam, Dunkeld, PH8 0DS

With over a decade's experience of successfully hosting all manner of conferences, seminars, AGM's and public meetings, The Birnam Arts & Conference Centre, situated in the heart of Scotland is superbly equipped to ensure you can relax, safe in the knowledge that our flexible and understanding team will be there to cater for all your individually tailored needs. Centrally located in the picturesque Perthshire village of Dunkeld & Birnam, the venue is bright and airy, dominated by natural light and with its imaginative use of internal space, Birnam Arts is a welcoming and inspiring platform for small to mid range events.

With a capacity of 150 delegates in our main auditorium and two smaller breakout rooms available, allied with our superb in-house catering from breakfast upon arrival, mid-morning refreshments, a wide selection of lunch options, through to evening buffets there is everything you could possibly need to ensure the complete success of your event. 

The main auditorium at Birnam Arts, The John Kinnaird Hall is a highly versatile space that can be set up in a variety of ways depending upon your needs. At 12m x 12m, up to 150 delegates can be seated comfortably downstairs with an additional 36 seats on the balcony. Up to 30 delegates can be seated Boardroom Style and up to 70 Cabaret Style. A large drop down screen, powerful projector, blackout curtains and an in-house speaker system with a hearing loop provides excellent audio-visual facilities, so much so that we have a regular Film Club at Birnam Arts.

The flexible nature of the room allows smaller and mid-range conferences to have smaller breakout areas within the room, avoiding the expense of extra room hire. With The Birnam Art Centre's growing reputation as a hub of the local community, the John Kinnaird Hall is also frequently used for public consultation events by companies undertaking infrastructure projects, for public meetings such as electoral hustings, by local groups for AGM's, as well as for our extensive arts programme.
