I use The Howard Venue as a regular venue for my classes and I always receive a warm welcome upon arrival. I deal a lot with Paula who is very kind and sets out the room and always happy to supply refreshments for my class attendees.

I would highly recommend The Howard Venue to other training and activity providers.
