About-Us-pic2

 

It’s simple, when you book your event with the Octagon, you are guaranteed a state-of-the-art facility coupled with a first-rate service from our highly experienced, friendly professional team.

But what you also get, is the added bonus of knowing that your event fee is spent on the charitable work of the Goodwin Development Trust in Hull – helping improve the quality of life in our community. This is our Trade-Not-Aid initiative – by doing business with us, you are directly helping the disadvantaged in your own region.
