Great news for wedding and civil partnership receptions!

  • From October 1st you will be permitted to hire the studios for meetings, training and virtual hybrid events with up to 30 participants.

Things will look a little different here. Our priority is to ensure that our guests and staff can be confident and feel safe.

Our studios are large, well ventilated and now aligned to meet government guidelines.

The studios are a perfect setting for holding webinars and other broadcast events.The large blank canvas spaces offer the flexibility to be used in many imaginative ways. They can be configured to suit your needs and you can create a set from which to broadcast your event. This offers an alternative experience to zooming from your living room.

We are still waiting for the government guidelines for when we will be permitted to  hire our studios for private parties and celebrations.At the moment you can hire it for small gatherings of 2 households with a maximum of 6 people from each.  We keep abreast of current changes in legislation and update the website weekly.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you back!
