The International Bomber Command Centre is a truly unique venue. With a range of flexible options we offer one of the most inspiring event spaces in the United Kingdom, combining first class facilities with the opportunity to support a lasting tribute to those who gave their lives as part of Bomber Command.

From an informal drinks reception to a large formal dinner with all the trimmings, the events team will work with you to ensure your event goes to plan and will stay in your guests’ memories for a long time to come.

Food plays an important part in any event and we are fortunate to be located in Lincolnshire – a county famous for its food production and with a long heritage of quality produce.

The food we serve at the Centre has been carefully selected to reflect both the quality of your experience at the Centre, as well as the wide variety of products created by some truly amazing local producers.

From delicate canapes to a formal dinner, our catering team will develop a menu to ensure it reflects your event and gives your guests a meal to remember.

We are determined to ensure your event works for you, and that nothing on the day takes the focus away from your objectives.

We are fully licenced for entertainment, alcohol, music and weddings.

“RecruitME in partnership with X Forces were looking for a venue for a big launch event with some of the UK’s largest and most prestigious companies and organisations.  Having met the team and seen the facilities on offer, the IBCC was the obvious place.  The evening of our event went very smoothly and the staff and hospitality were exceptional.  A month after the event, we are still being complimented on what a fantastic experience it was.  Thank you again to the team at the IBCC,  for being tremendous hosts.” Howard Rudder, CEO, RecruitME

As a charity, income from events is a lifeline to helping to remember those who gave their lives and making sure their memories are kept alive for future generations. By holding your event at the IBCC you will be contributing to an internationally recognised and worthwhile project.
