About Priorslee Lounge & Bar

Set within the grounds of the Telford Innovation Campus, the Priorslee Lounge & Bar is the ideal venue for private meetings, networking events, social clubs, retirement and birthday parties.

The bar is linked to Priorslee Hall and is also only a short walk from The Hutchinson (SA) Building and the Darby (SC) Building, where the main conference rooms are. The bar provides a modern social space for evening use for conferences or can be used as “dedicated” space for daytime meetings and networking events.
