Wedding Receptions & Civil Ceremonies
Our glorious split level Stone Barn is very adaptable for receptions, formal dining, civil ceremonies and dancing. This lovely building has rough stone walls dating from the 17th Century, sophisticated lighting and excellent acoustics. We encourage clients to use the internal space creatively with a wide range of tried and tested caterer’s to choose from. The south-facing terrace, lawns and self-catering barn (offering bridal or family accommodation) combine to provide a lovely setting for your special day.
Corporate Events & Business Meetings
We provide complete privacy and easy accessibility for company conferences, meetings, private lunches, staff events, team building and client entertaining. Using both our furnished Conference Room and the Stone Barn there is tremendous scope for smaller or larger events – be they formal or informal in style. We are happy to quote for anything from a short meeting to a three day conference. We can also help with finding and transport to /from suitable hotels or local accommodation.
Special Family Occasions & Anniversaries
Family gatherings and parties at Hendall have included anniversary lunches and evening receptions. By choosing one of our highly experienced ‘approved caterers’, clients can create an individual and homely occasion with precisely the right atmosphere and privacy required. You can take advantage of the acoustic qualities in the Stone Barn with any of our recommended musicians and singers or introduce one of your own contacts.
Charity, Local & Community Events
Anyone wishing to organise any event with a charitable or not for profit purpose will find us enthusiastic to assist and able to offer discounted or nominal hire rates.
So far we have hosted several lunches, a vintage tea/fashion show, a performance of As You Like It and we have a WW1 commemoration booked for 2014.
A classical concert, singing groups and a Pilates class have used the buildings to great effect.
Creative Workshops & Courses
Hendall is an ideal place to hold any kind of creative, artistic, musical, dance or culinary group activity. The Studio/Conference Room has been used for art classes, the caterer’s kitchen for cookery classes and The Stone Barn for singing groups.
This is something becoming more and more popular at Hendall, due to the beautiful location. There is tremendous scope for courses, demonstrations, tutorials, training and teaching.
Exhibitions, Performances & Photo-Shoots
Art exhibitions, book launches, lectures, award ceremonies, photo- shoots would all work brilliantly in the Stone Barn. In 2012 we saw As You Like It performed here and a fully subscribed classical concert. We have seating for up to 130 attendees, a sound system and disabled access throughout.
