Families, friends and colleagues will be delighted by your event hosted at one of our venues. Food, drink and music can all be arranged according to your requirements whether you’re in black tie and ball gown or simply relaxing with friends.

Our experienced team can guide you through the preparations for anything from a corporate award ceremony to a jolly Christmas party. Our flexible venues each have a distinctive character that adds a touch of magic to the occasion.
