Bookings latest

We have very limited availability for Saturday evenings in 2024 but we do have several Friday evening slots available. Please see our availaibilty calendar below for real time booking information.

Whatever the occasion - birthday, anniversary, engagement, or any other excuse for a celebration - the main hall is all yours between 6.00pm and midnight on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Our newly refurbished lounge bar is included in the cost of your booking and you can also select from a number of add-on services including our Audio Visual Package, Kitchen Hire and Venue Manager. Please see below for more details.

We are also able to link you with our catering partners who can provide a quote for your event for anything from a full multi-course sit down meal to a finger buffet. Please contact us for more details.

With all the options available we're sure your special night at Lutterell Hall will be everything you want it to be.

(Please note as per our terms of hire 10.4 that our license does not permit us to hold parties predominantly for teenagers, such as 16th, or 18th birthday parties.)

Questions & Answers

What days can I hire the hall?

The hall is available to hire for celebrations on Friday and Saturday evenings only, due to the hall being used by various community groups throughout the week. Bookings can be made up to 12 months in advance.

What time can I get in to the hall?

This booking is for a set 6hrs, with access from 6pm right through to midnight. We will have any tables and seating set up for you in the main hall when you arrive. Come any time after 6pm to add any finishing touches.

If, however, you require entry earlier to do any extra setting up please contact us to discuss availability.

How will my table and chairs be set up?

You can have whatever layout you desire utilising our 15 round tables (5ft diameter) and our 18 rectangular tables (6ft wide).

Our round tables are the most popular choice for eating and the rectangular tables are ideal for serving food, setting up buffets, desserts or for a hot drinks station.

We can fit up to 10 people around the round tables - 8 is comfortable, 10 is workable but slightly more cosy.

Listed below are 6 sample layouts all giving a slightly different feel and with different advantages. Have a look through and if one fits the bill make a note of the sample number and let us know on the booking form.

Do you have a bar?

Yes, our licensed bar & coffee lounge is located in the new lounge and is included in the cost of your booking. Please let us know roughly how many guests you are expecting so that we can make sure we adequately staff the bar for you.

You can see the full menu of drinks available on our coffee lounge pageYou can purchase drinks with either cash and card.

Please note: as per our terms and conditions (item 10.1), hirers are not permitted to supply alcohol at the hall. And (as per item 10.9), no food is to be consumed in our lounge (Thraves) and no food or drink is allowed in our reception area.

What does the Audio Visual Package include?

With our AV Package you'll get full use of our state of the art sound and light system.

Your DJ can plug straight into our system or maybe you want to bring your own music? No problem. You can either supply specific tracks as MP3 or M4A files for us to set up. Alternatively you can send us a link to a Spotify list and we'll get that set up for you. Or if its easier, just bring in your phone, tablet, laptop or USB stick and you can plug and play on our system.

You can utilise our media projectors to display message(s) on our large screens. Whether that be a simple congratulations message or video clips for your guests to watch. We also have wireless mics for those all important speeches.

And to polish it all off, you'll get use of our disco lights that are all pre-set to move in time with the music!

We've got everything covered for you with this option, with one of our trained Venue Managers on hand throughout the evening to co-ordinate this side of your event, to ensure it runs without a hitch, so you can relax and enjoy the party!

Why would I want a Venue Manager?

We strongly recommend booking a Venue Manager for your celebration if you want to take the hassle out of managing your event, so you can just relax and enjoy the party. 

Our designated team member will be fully briefed on your booking and will be on hand between 6pm and midnight to take care of the following and to ensure your event runs smoothly, to schedule and without any hiccups:

  • Help with any final bits of set up.
  • Make sure all guests enter the building safely and are made aware of their surroundings.
  • Change lighting to the appropriate settings at various parts of the night.
  • Manage playlists / background music.
  • Make sure any video clips/images/slideshows are set up and come on at the right time.
  • Keep a check on the heating and ventilation.
  • Deal with any accidents or spillages.
  • Help with any issues in the kitchen.
  • Keep the flasks topped up with boiling water (if you've ordered the hot drinks station).
  • Answer any queries from guests.

As a hirer, we want you to be able to relax and enjoy the night along with all other guests, so why not take the pressure off yourself and book a Venue Manager too.

Please note that this service is automatically included if you purchase the Audio Visual Package.

Can we have water available on the tables?

Yes. You can hire our water jugs and hi-ball glasses and we will have them set out on the tables ready for you when you arrive.

Can you dress the tables?

Yes! For an extra charge we can add some sparkle and sophistication to the tables and chairs. Prices are listed on the table on this page and include fitting.

As a basic option we can add white or black tablecloths with or without a table runner.

If you want more we can add white seat covers with or without sashes that match the table runners.

We can currently offer the following:

Colour Runner Sashes
Burgundy Yes Yes
Gold Yes Yes
Lilac Yes Yes
Plum Yes Yes
Black Yes Yes
Peach Yes Yes
Bright Gold Yes No
Baby Pink Yes No
Baby Blue Yes No
Dark Green Yes Yes

If you specifically require a different colour let us know as we are continuing to increase our range.

If you've tried looking at hire prices for these items that cover hirer's mileage, fitting, removing and laundering, I'm sure you'll agree our prices are very competitive, if not unbeatable! Having said that, if you do want to supply your own tablecloths then you'll need to know that the large round tables are 5ft in diameter and the rectangular tables are 6ft (long) x 2ft 3" (wide) so that you can find tablecloths that cover the correct area, with the correct drop.

What are the catering options?

If you want to supply your own food either yourself or via a caterer, then you are welcome to use our kitchen for preparation. You are also welcome to use the car park and our power supply for a catering van (hog roast, pizza etc). Either way, you will need to select the 'Kitchen Hire' option at checkout.

Please note that we do not supply crockery, cutlery, cookware, kitchen utensils or napkins as part of the Kitchen Hire.

Alternatively, you can contact us for details of our catering partners, who can provide anything from a multi-course meal to a finger buffet.

Please note: as per our terms and conditions (item 10.9), no food is to be consumed in our lounge (Thraves) and no food or drink is allowed in our reception area.

Can we use the play area in the car park?

Yes, this area is available for hire. Its a great addition for smaller children (under 10) who may get bored or restless. It is available during May, June, July & August.

This add-on is NOT available through this website, please enquire if you are interested in adding it to your booking.

Please note: as per our terms and conditions - No children over the age of 10 allowed in this area; Parents must supervise children at all times; the Play Area will be closed between 8-9pm as the sun sets; Anyone acting inappropriately in the play area will be asked to leave and not return for the duration of the hire; The play area is inspected after every hire - any damage found will charged to the hirer irrespective of who caused the damage.
