By Facility

Whatever you need, we’ve got the venue.

Bruntingthorpe is a hugely diverse site with multiple venue options to ensure we can cater for events large and small. We have two main buildings, the Hangar ’42 Events Centre and the trackside Whittle Building, along with exclusive use of our 6.5km test track and supplementary outdoor areas. Whether you’re looking to host a small conference or organise a large-scale gala dinner, we have what you’re looking for. Our unique location makes for an interesting backdrop to any corporate hospitality or social event. Bruntingthorpe is also suitable as a filming location, both indoor and out, for that extra dash of individuality.


Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire is the current home of C Walton Limited, Manheim Auctions, Big Thunder Events, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground and the Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, featuring the iconic Cold War Jets Collection as well as a number of other automotive businesses. All situated within the 670-acre site, there is something to meet the needs of each of our customers. Our wide range of facilities allow us to cater for any type of event, from the standard to the obscure, and thanks to our 3.2km straight, Bruntingthorpe still operates as an active airfield.
