Host your private events in a former convent
Looking to organise work meetings, conferences, concerts, parties or family gatherings? Several spaces are available for hire at Saisons Zéro!
The convent of the Poor Clares is a 6 500 m2 series of buildings located in Roubaix, Northern France. Built in 1874 by Jean-Baptiste Bethune, also known as the Pugin of Belgium, it was subsequently deconsecrated and has been unoccupied since 2008.
Built in 1874, the chapel of the Holy Trinity has since been deconsecrated but still brims with opulent
details. Its stained-glass windows, rood beam, flooring and impressive scale make it the crown jewel of
the whole building, and the perfect place for hosting conferences, seminars, acoustic concerts and even
luncheons or dinners.
During the cold season, a tent made from spinnaker cloth can be put in place. This structure was designed by the Brussels-based architecture collective.

The Glass-covered walkway and the Cave Courtyard
On the side of the chapel, the Cave courtyard and the glass-covered walkway offer an interesting combo. An outdoor space with passable ground and a smaller, light-filled and sheltered area, these two spaces are ideal for hosting outdoor buffets and other social occasions.
The chapel of the Poor Clares
This is the room where the cloistered nuns attended mass, separate from the general public. The arched opening, which has since been sealed, offered a direct view of the choir.The quiet atmosphere and generous dimensions of this space make it ideal for meetings and conferences !
The Exhibition Hall
The exhibition hall is the biggest space available for hire on site. Once a schoolyard for the pupils of the Sainte Clare school, its main features are a succession of brick vaults and a welcoming wooden floor.
Nowadays refurbished, it is fully equipped for hosting exhibitions and other cultural events.
The Conference Hall
In the heart of the former Sainte Claire school, the conference hall benefits from a high ceiling made of brick vaults, a stage and technical equipment allowing for lighting and sound diffusion.
This space, which once was the refectory of the school, has been revamped and transformed into a muti-use room suited for hosting parties, exhibitions, conferences and workshops.
