'The event was a great success and everyone loved the indoor lawn. It was perfect for a birthday party as the colours are so vibrant.  Very spacious and easily fitted in a bouncy castle as well.  Staff members were great.  We would definitely book it again and I would recommend it to anyone.'

Ms Thomas - Birthday Party 

'The warmth of the reception and the excellent facilities at The Bourne Academy made teaching such talented people from the Bournemouth area a real pleasure... nothing was too much trouble to the superb staff, who looked after us exceptionally well.'

Wayne Sleep - Dance Workshops 

'It was an absolute pleasure working with the team at The Bourne Academy, they were extremely professional and nothing was too much for them. They even put a notice on the gates when the meeting was postponed, which I was extremely impressed with!  I would recommend the venue for any business or social functions - the facilities are great.'
