Celebrations

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 Fridays and Saturdays.

Let us know what set up you require and we'll have everything ready for you. You can also select some add-on services such as our Licensed Bar and our Audio Visual Package. Contact us separately if you want to discuss our buffet options.

With all the options available we're sure your special night at Lutterell Hall will be just what you wanted.

(Please note as per our terms of hire 10.4 that our license does not permit us to hold parties predominantly for teenagers.)

Questions & Answers

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 you can check availability and purchase extra time here. 

How will my table and chairs be set up?

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

Virtually every time, our customers want to use the round tables for eating and the rectangular tables for serving food, setting up buffets, deserts or our 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 is located in the new lounge and can be utilised for a small add on charge of £50. Please let us know roughly how many guests you are expecting so that we can make sure we adequately staff the bar. 

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 Bundle include?

With our AV Bundle 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.

If you've hit budget for your event you don't even have to fork out hundreds for a DJ/Disco if you don't want to. You'll get access to all of our handpicked playlists designed for various stages of your special occasion - whether light background music to create some ambience over food, or some professionally mixed bangin' tracks that will fill the dance-floor!

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, jus bring in your phone, tablet or laptop and you can plug and play on our system.

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 add-on.

Tell me more about the in-house Disco'?

If you've hit budget for your event or just want to save a few hundred quid on hiring a mobile disco, then let us show you what's on offer...

You can have access to several handpicked playlists all professionally mixed together - each one bringing you between 30 and 70 minutes of continuous music at the click of a button.

You can simply select the playlists you want ahead of time and we'll have it all set up for you - you won't have to do a thing. Or if you'd prefer to play it a bit more by ear, then we can have all the mixes available for you to select at any point on the night. 

Use this with our great sounding in-house PA system and our installed disco lights available as part of our AV package and you've just created your own disco for a fraction of hiring one in.

If you're confident that you have a DJ who is going to deliver the right tracks and keep the party flowing with some great mixes, then that's fantastic. But if you'd rather know that you're guaranteed to hear some tried and tested tunes and don't want loads of people making requests for loads of different songs, then this add-on could be a serious consideration for you.

You could just nick the song choices and stick them on a Spotify playlist - and we can play that for you, but as we're sure you'll appreciate, the gold is mainly found in the mixes that so often seemingly transition between songs - keeping the dancing alive, and maintaining the party atmosphere in the room. 

If this option interests you, we don't want you to have to leave things to chance, so we have made the playlists available for you to listen to below with all the songs listed underneath.

Sample Schedule 

To give you an idea of how these could fit into your celebration, we've given you a scenario below.

  • 7.00pm - Guests arrive (background Spotify play list)
  • 7.30pm - buffet open / food served
  • 8.05pm - 80's Mix (1 hr 23 mins)
  • 9.28pm - 90's Mix (1 hr 9 mins)
  • 10.37pm - Party Mix (53 mins) - Last orders is 11pm
  • 11.30pm - Music has to end by 11.30pm
  • 12.00am - Premises vacated

Of course this is only using there of the playlists, you can pick and choose which ones you want, but in the above scenario we would just turn the disco lights on and start the 80's mix at 8.05pm and the rest of the playlists would follow on automatically ending your night exactly on time.

 

 

Why would I want a Venue Manager?

We recommend booking a Venue Manager for your celebration if you want it to run smoothly, to schedule and without any hiccups.

Our designated member of staff will be fully briefed on your booking and will be on hand between 6pm and midnight to:

  • 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.

What does the 'Hot Drinks Station' include?

Make sure that there is always tea and coffee available for all your guests, free of charge, throughout your event.

Whether someone fancies grabbing themselves a cuppa to have with their food or someone just prefers a hot beverage over a cold one, this cost-effective additional option is a great one to keep all your guests happy.

We will lay out tables with cups & saucers, mugs, milk, sugar and a selection of teas and coffees for your guests to serve themselves whenever they want to. All you have to do is top the flasks up with boiling water from the kitchen when you need to (if you've hired our venue manager, then they will do this for you).

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 No 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 then you are welcome to bring that in or use our kitchen to help prepare. Either way, you will need to select the small 'self catering charge' at checkout.

Alternatively, you can contact us to find out what buffet options we can offer (this will be billed separately, in addition).

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 who may get bored or restless.

Please note: as per our terms and conditions - No children over the age of 12 allowed in this area; Parents must supervise children at all times; 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.

If you can't find the answer to your questions on this page, you can check out our general Q&A page. If you still have questions after that, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
