Set among 400 years of maritime history, The Dockyard Chatham provides an amazing backdrop for any event.

Complete with spectacular, breath-taking architecture, this venue offers an historic setting but with modern facilities. Different and unique venue hire spaces are available to hire for all events. The flexible spaces can be transformed for all occasions, ranging from large gala dinners and award ceremonies, conferences and exhibitions, to intimate private dining and bespoke product launches.

The Commissioner’s House is the oldest intact naval building in Great Britain and was built in 1704. It’s range of function rooms will add a touch of grandeur to any corporate lunch whilst the Mess Deck offers a more modern setting for dinners and receptions. For something more intimate, you can impress your guests by inviting them onboard a Victorian Sloop and enjoy private dining in the Captain’s Cabin.

By hosting an event at the Dockyard you are also helping towards the preservation of the 80-acre historic estate for the benefit of visitors now and in the future.

What Our Clients Say

I have used ‘Function Fixers’ now on many occasions and they are my go-to for literally any event I need help with organising. Heather is an absolute superstar who is always there to help and goes above and beyond to find me the perfect venue and make sure it is a smooth transition from start to finish.

I would highly recommend them to anyone and am so thankful to have found the company…absolute life and time savers, and certainly ‘fixers’!!

Really impressed at the speed and efficiency of this service. I gave Chen a really tricky brief and they smashed it out the park and really helped my team.

I need to find a venue large enough to host a group for Easter Retreat. We was beginning to worry that we would not be able to host it in England which would have meant taking it to America or Canada. However we where saved by the Bell by Heather from function fixers, she was the groups shining armer in this case. Heather was able to come up with three or four options that was large enough to host the group also flexible to the groups need. Heather was able to do all the stressful part of negotiations with the venues right to the end and all our group did was to agree with the venue on the date the booking payment was needed We are extremely grateful for all that Heather did for us and would recommend Heather to anyone looking for a venue for any occasion so leaving yourselves stress free to enjoy your day. Thank you Heather

I've been working with Carrie for the past 2-3 months to finalise a venue for a 250pax conference we are hosting next year. She was exceptional in putting forward appropriate suggestions and even better at managing our changing requests and circumstances. Nothing was too much trouble. We have just signed on a venue and we are delighted. Highly recommend!
