Oxford's Largest Multi-Purpose Conference &
Event Centre becomes a Covid - 19 Testing Centre.


Press Release:

The King’s Centre has been selected by Oxfordshire County Council as a rapid testing centre for symptom-free key workers. After a competitive process, the Centre was selected for its ample space, ease of access, and proximity to the city centre. The King’s Centre will serve the city of Oxford and central Oxfordshire, as one of three centres across the county.


Tim King, General Manager of The King’s Centre, Oxford, said: “We are delighted to be providing this essential community service to Oxfordshire. The King’s Centre has served the city of Oxford through events and conferences for 18 years, and the Covid-19 crisis hit conference and events spaces hard. We are proud to have partnered with the Council and encouraged to have our doors open again to the community. As the largest conference venue in the city, our Centre works well for testing as we have a variety of rooms and can continue to conduct other business events safely alongside. The venue is set in a quiet location, designed to handle large numbers of visitors and easy to access from the city and county.”
