We are delighted to reveal that Greenway Business Centre, Harlow has finished refurbishing its meeting rooms. We are now home to three sleek new meeting spaces for the use of our Capital Space customers as well as external bookers. The new rooms have been revamped in Capital Space signature dark blue, and now display prints celebrating two key figures in Harlow’s cultural history: Henry Moore and Frederick Gibberd.

New names to honour Harlow’s history

Harlow is a town with a vibrant history and strong arts links, as exemplified by its Henry Moore Foundation and Gibberd Garden, right on Greenway Business Centre’s doorstep.

The artist Henry Moore and his town-planner friend and founder of The Harlow Arts Trust, Frederick Gibberd, have long-been linked to Harlow for their pivotal role in introducing sculpture to the town after the Second World War, ensuring art and culture were accessible to its people. Moore’s famous Family Group sculpture, commissioned after WWII, is significant for its depiction of a strong, post-war family. Such art helped to encourage family stability and led to a boom in birth rates in the town. As a result, Harlow’s new moniker became the ‘pram town’, and despite its many moves around the country, Family Group remains a town symbol, commemorating Harlow’s post-war transformation.

The Gibberd Garden is an inspiring Grade-II listed, 14-acre garden, created by Frederick Gibberd between 1957 and 1984. His goal was to design an outdoor space that could in itself be considered a work of art, with its walls bursting with sculptures and decorative objects, dispersed amongst the wild flowers and still pools. Gibberd’s masterplan for a post-war Harlow New Town, coupled with his passion for the arts and culture, make him one of the town’s most notable figures.

Honouring Moore and Gibberd

As a nod to the two individuals, Greenway Business Centre’s three meeting rooms have now been aptly renamed as follows:

  • Meeting room 1: Gibberd
  • Meeting room 2: Garden
  • Meeting rooms 1 and 2 can be combined to become Gibberd Garden
  • Meeting room 3: Henry Moore

With a seating capacity of between 8-40 people, the room layouts can be configured to suit your own needs whether you want theatre-, classroom- or boardroom-style. In addition, there are a range of delicious, high quality catering options available to suit your budget. Prices for external bookers start from £20 per hour, with half-day and full-day hire packages also available.

Customers will soon be invited to come and view the newly decorated, modern meeting rooms ideal if you are planning interviews, training sessions or presentations.
