Events included conferences, corporate hospitality, annual general meetings, banquets and sports events including snooker tournaments. It was also the venue for the Eurovision Song Contest in 1977, hosted the very first Brit Awards that same year, and provided the location for the 1979 Blake's 7 episode "Voice from the Past".

Mixed martial arts promotion Cage Rage held all their events here up until the building's demolition.
