The Earl of Powis, Edward Clive built the freestanding Ballroom at Walcot Hall around 1800 and it has since seen over two centuries of magnificent occasions. The current owners have restored it to it’s former glory and it is now available to hire for many private events including wedding receptions, balls, parties, family reunions, opera, concerts and theatre. It is situated to the rear of Walcot Hall and can be approached either via the gardens or through a secluded stone-flagged courtyard.
Guests enter into the Anteroom / bar area which provides an intimate, cosy setting for around 30 seated guests or as a comfortable ‘break-out’ area during wedding celebrations. The perfect number for a wedding reception at Walcot Hall is 100-120 guests, although the Ballroom can accommodate up to 200 people in a more relaxed, buffet style or evening party.
Imagine if you will, a beautifully decorated Ballroom with 30ft ornate ceilings, crystal chandeliers, open fireplace, gilt mirrors and tall sash windows all set within acres of beautiful gardens. Now add a 48 hour exclusive hire agreement, so from the morning proceeding your wedding to the morning after you are married, you may decorate and use the reception venue to host your celebrations exactly the way you want them.
Your Wedding Reception at Walcot Hall
Walcot Hall prides itself on it’s flexibility and you are welcome to choose your own caterer and other suppliers so you can make your budget work harder for you. This also means you are able to book suppliers from far and wide, not just the West Midlands. We are able to suggest local suppliers to you who have been to Walcot many times before and who come highly recommended.
Included in the hire of the Ballroom are tables, chairs, crockery, cutlery, glassware and table linen. We provide round tables at Walcot Hall which can seat up to 10 people to a table. Alternatively couples can hire in trestle tables to create a more informal banqueting style.
When couples book Walcot Hall a pay bar is included in the price for the day of your wedding. Drinks packages are also available to purchase, starting from £6.00 per person for reception and toast drinks. Should couples wish to provide their own wine for the tables during their wedding breakfast, they can do but we impose a small corkage fee per bottle.
