The Hove Centre at Hove Town Hall
To provide a total catering service including purchasing, management, food preparation, service delivery and menu design for all aspects of catering and bar management within the Hove Centre.
The Hove Centre is the Brighton Centres sister venue; offering meeting, conference and concert facilities, situated 1 mile to the west of the city centre 400 metres from the seafront. A full programme of events until the end of 2009 will ensure that the venue remains key to the business and leisure tourism market.
