The Core, is exclusively available for hire for only the friends of Core to Cloud. This includes our Partners, Local Charities, Educational institutes, Local businesses and anyone making a difference through the use of technology.

The space, offers an impressive backdrop for events, corporate functions, conferences and meetings. Located in the beautiful Cecily Hill Barracks, built in 1857 as the Royal North Gloucestershire Militia Armoury. After the Army had no more use for the barracks, the Castle became a commercial building owned by the Bathurst Estate. The Barracks (known locally as The Castle) stands at the entrance to Cirencester Park and is the new HQ of Core to Cloud.

The Core venue is in the heart of the Cotswolds, within a 40 minutes drive of the new Cybersecurity Valley and GCHQ in Cheltenham. With close access to the M4 and M5 and local train stations in Kemble and Swindon.
