The Hangar ’42 Events Centre is simply a blank canvas.

Bruntingthorpe boasts its own unique events centre situated in the heart of Leicestershire, an extensively refurbished aircraft hangar, fully equipped to support large corporate hospitality and social events. The hangar, a 35,000 sq. ft. building, includes a kitchen area, washroom facilities and a vast 29,000 sq. ft. of event space. The refurbishment project saw the installation of highly insulated walls, a brand new heating system, a built-in PA system, roving microphones, coloured LED floodlights and individually programmable lights.

Suitable for gala dinners, exhibitions, charity events and product launches, the Hangar ’42 Events Centre is a truly unique space. We offer the venue as a blank canvas for customers to decorate and arrange as they wish. The main hall itself is completely free of additional support structures, leaving a wide-open space to work with.

We have hosted events that require stages, catwalks and even a full TV studio within the walls of the hangar and can cater for more unusual requests such as circus performers requiring a practice arena.

Serviced by a 400-vehicle carpark and in easy reach of the M1, Bruntingthorpe’s Hangar ’42 is the only place for your next corporate event.


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.
