Event Hire Information

We are primarily a visitor attraction so there are a few restrictions in place detailed below.

• The welfare of our creatures is our top priority.
• We cater for a variety of entertainment, but please be aware you are unable to have a DJ or bands with amplified music. Acoustic bands are permitted. Alternatively, you can use our speaker system which will be adjusted to the correct volumes necessary.
• We do not have any catering facilities for food and drink; however we can recommend selected suppliers for catering. In the café, we have available for use 10 small round tables and 40 chairs, however you are welcome to hire in additional items you may require.
• The Centre does not have dedicated parking. If you have specific parking requirements, please contact the Council who can advise you on parking and deliveries. There are also pay and displays along Madeira Drive and the Seafront.
• At SEA LIFE we have limited storage and set-up space. However, our school room is available to hire for £50 per hour (subject to availability).
• All costs are exclusive of VAT and are subject to change until contracts are signed
• To secure a date, we require a 10% deposit, and the full balance is due at least 21 days before the event. We also require a £500 refundable breakages deposit at the time of booking.
• You are welcome to make multiple visits to the Centre for a walk through and to take any measurements required. Please get in touch so we can arrange this.
• Throughout the year, we hold daytime events for our visitors so on occasions there may be additional event signage or props around the Centre.
