A Village Hall Wedding in the heart of the Lake District - an unforgettable experience
The recently revitalised Threlkeld Village Hall is an ideal venue for a wedding reception or special party. Externally, the building is traditional in appearance, but it has been refurbished and extended to meet the highest modern standards.
The Hall is warm and bright and can be ‘dressed’ by you to reflect your own style and tastes.
Set in the centre of the village, on the lower slopes of Blencathra, with spectacular views and close to many of the most stunning Lake District locations, Threlkeld Village Hall is a unique place for your special event.
The Hall is approximately 15m x 7m and has space for up to 120 guests for a dance/social buffet and 80 for a sit down meal. A variety of round, square and rectangular tables are available. It has a very high quality floor, suitable for dancing, games etc. It is licensed for the sale of alcohol and for musical performance.
There is a ceiling mounted digital projector with computer and DVD connectivity, sound system, radio mike and WiFi. These can be used for speeches and presentations, videos, even Skype connections with remote ‘guests’.
For added atmosphere there are controllable overhead coloured stage and disco lights.
The building is completely accessible with level access from the front entrance and a platform lift from the rear car park.
For what is available and costs - see Charges.
Adjacent to the Hall and connected by double doors, is the room which houses the village Coffee Shop, operational daily from 10am to 5pm, with spectacular views towards Clough Head and St John’s in the Vale.
This room is available for hire from 5.30pm onwards and can form a bar or sitting out area, in conjunction with the Main Hall. It is approximately 9m x 5.5m and can accommodate up to 50 people operating as a bar/buffet area with a few tables
It has windows opening onto a covered patio with additional tables and chairs.
There is a well equipped kitchen attached to the Hall, and connected via a servery, which can be used by the hirer, or outside caters for your event - see Catering for details.
