Your event?

We host all sorts of events in our backroom – mainly parties but also occasional meetings, workshops, films nights, hen do’s, baby showers, weddings and private meals. Our aim is to keep it as simple and as easy as possible for you, all you should have to do is to turn up!

Availability:

Friday Nights

The room is available on Friday nights from 6 pm -midnight/1am and minimum numbers are 40. With at least 20 people eating the room hire is free, our buffet menu starts at £8 per head for flatbreads and fries which can be shared amongst larger groups. If no food is ordered room hire costs £50.On a Friday nights, we have a resident DJ situated at the front playing a wide selection of funk, soul, disco etc. We have the option to beam footage of him to the screen in the back so that your party can enjoy the DJ too. Alternatively, you can play your own music via our system as long as it doesn’t not get too loud to clash with the music from the front. We usually find that the best parties enjoy the same music throughout the building and our DJ is selected for his ability to play great music that appeals to a wider audience.

Saturday Nights

On Saturdays we are always open to the public for dancing later on but we can make the room available from 3pm -9pm for your event. Often people who do this just stay on for the evening to hear the DJ’s, and we can also book tables for you at the front. Minimum numbers are 30, with at least 15 people eating the room hire is free. If no food is ordered room hire costs £30.

Capacity:

We can accommodate 25 to 70/80 people depending on how you wish to use the room. It’s cosy for both smaller and larger numbers.

Equipment:

Much of the furniture folds or moves around easily to accommodate the best layout for your function. We have invested in a great sound system and decks, making recorded and live music alike sound excellent. We also have a variety of lighting for different setups including ambient options and candlelight, and for dancing there is a smoke machine and laser light. We also have a large wall mounted screen if you would like to show images or film.

All of our usual fare is available at the bar and welcome cocktails, Prosecco, wine and beers can be ordered in advance and poured in the room. Our prices are as affordable as we can make them and as such we do not offer drinks packages.

We always light candles and usually have flowers too. We also show images on the screen if required and guests are welcome to bring additional decorations as long as they stick with bluetac – not tape – and agree to take everything they need away afterwards.
