The BIC's impressive main auditorium is the WINDSOR HALL - the showpiece of the venue. Spacious and versatile its superb facilities are designed to meet the needs of the most discerning visitor or event planner. As our largest hall, its flexibility allows for almost any event - large rock or pop concerts, major political party conventions, trade/public exhibitions, banquets, and sporting events ranging from Darts to Dance Championships, and Harlem Globetrotters Basketball to Ice Skating.
With a mix of flat-floor and tiered seating to balcony level, on a fully motorised, retractable unit, the hall can be configured to specific capacities and client requirements, including the portable 'Roll and Set' SICO stage for all types of presentations.
For your exhibition, the seating can be cleared to provide ample space on both the main floor and the balcony. Direct Access is also provided for large vehicles and the granwood floor will withstand loads of 1020 kg/m2.
The hall's versatility is further enhanced by easy access to licensed bars and dressing rooms and by direct links with the neighbouring Solent, Tregonwell and Purbeck Halls at ground and first floor levels.
Currently there are no events for the Bournemouth International Centre - Windsor Hall .
Kaye Lee-Wright, 19/02/13
Have been to the BIC many times over the years and the venue is good for parking. The facilities are good for food, drink and toilets, but as always, the ladies area is crowded ~ made worse at Donny concerts! The size of the venue makes for an impersonal concert and as the stalls area is flat, customers have to stand up if the people at the front do so. Not always a good thing as I get older!! Sightlines have never been an issue for me, but the accoustics are sometimes problematic. The staff are in general friendly and helpful. I did send a letter to Donny and Marie via your Stage Door, and would like to know if it were received as I have not heard from them. I understand they must have got a lot of mail, but as I included a stamped, addressed envelope, I had hoped to have had a reply. Perhaps I was over~optomistic!! I am certain I will visit the BIC in the future.
Donny & Marie (19/02/13) - Dynamic & Magnificent
Having seen Donny at Bournemouth many times and he is an amazing artist, seeing him with his sister, Marie, I was so impressed with them both! I had the most wonderful evening. How can one family have such talent? It is now no surprise that they have had extended contracts in Vegas! Donny & Marie, you were Dynamic and Magnificent, I hope I get the chance to see you again ~ maybe in Vegas sometime!
