The Ballroom at Walcot Hall

The Earl of Powis, Edward Clive built the freestanding Ballroom at Walcot Hall in 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 20 seated guests or as a comfortable ‘break-out’ area during wedding celebrations. Here we have our bar as well as a piano, comfortable seating and an open fire. 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 turquoise Ballroom with 30ft ornate ceilings, crystal chandeliers, an 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 venue to host your celebrations exactly the way you want them.
