The Headingley Bar was the perfect venue for my 30th birthday party. The room is spacious and well laid out, there is plenty of seating, a stage and a great sized dance floor along with pool tables at the back of the room! James who helped with all the organising was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Everyone who came had a brilliant night – and to top it all off because of the takings behind the bar I got £100 handed back to me at the end of the evening! Everything went so smoothly and as a result I had a brilliant night celebrating! A fantastic venue, run by a great team! If you are looking for somewhere to throw a great party, get in touch with James and all the staff at Headingley Bar! You won’t be disappointed! - Fay, Leeds
We have booked the Students’ Union on several occasions for private functions for young people attending residential events on campus. We have always had a really positive experience – plenty of room, good, filling food, and great staff who are happy for us to have alcohol-free events. The staff are friendly and accommodating, ensuring that all those taking part have a great time, and that we, as organisers can relax a little in the cheerful and welcoming surroundings.
"Everyone without exception thoroughly enjoyed the night as demonstrated by these comments:
“it was great to be back on campus: a trip down memory lane”
“great venue, somewhere to eat, drink, dance, and sit & talk all in one place”
“catering staff went out of their way to be helpful”
“best reunion so far, stick to this plan”
The vote was unanimous to hold it here again in 2018".
"I am on the organising committee for a national public service sporting event. For several years, we have used Beckett Student’s Union Bar as an evening entertainment venue for fancy dress parties. We have never been disappointed with the venue in any way; the staff are efficient and friendly, the bar prices are very reasonable and the functionality of the building and surrounding area is very good. Most importantly for us, it provides a safe and secure environment where the players can fully relax and enjoy the event. Highly recommended!"
"Your venue was brilliant for our wedding, we had a blank canvas and were allowed and able to do anything we wanted to it. No request was too much to ask, the Venue Manager put my mind at rest all the way in the lead up."
"It's a huge venue in which we managed to comfortably fit 300 people in. All our friends commented on how nice the venue was as well as the outside seating areas and views."
"The day was better than we could have ever imagined and we thank the venue staff dearly for all their hard work and friendly nature. We will definitely recommend the venue to anyone looking for a function room!"
"The venue was perfect, brilliant relaxed space to cater for all ages at our 30th birthday. The football and pool tables went down a treat even with the grandparents! The catering was fantastic value for money, I would recommend this venue because of the good communication from staff when organising and space/facilities available. We will definitely consider using it again when the time arises."
"The venue was perfect and the bar staff were great! Thank you very much for all your help in organising this, I would certainly book this place again for an event. My only complaint is that the evening went by too quickly!"
"I would just like to say a massive thank you to yourself and the team for a successful party on Saturday night. We couldn't have had better team of staff. They were efficient and approachable at all times, all the guests certainly enjoyed themselves. The venue is very spacious so everyone was able to find there preferred spot. We will definitely consider this venue again in the future."
