Celebrations at The Grove: Our pick
27 June 2018 / Celebrations /
Our event spaces are fit for royalty (literally, that is, given that The Grove was Queen Victoria’s choice of venue for her weekend parties). The hotel has a huge range of spaces to suit a wide variety of special occasions – from baby showers and birthday parties, to anniversaries and Bar Mitzvahs. We provide a blank canvas and help to transform it into a picture-perfect backdrop to any celebration.
Whether you’re looking for celebrate with a small group of friends, or throw a huge bash with a seemingly never-ending guest list, we have the right venue for you. Not sure which space to choose? Take a look below for some inspiration, and get in touch if you think we might be able to help create your dream event:
A golden wedding anniversary
We’d recommend: The Garden Room and The Donneraile
Situated in our Grade II listed mansion, these spaces can accommodate up to 36 guests. It’s ideal if you’re looking for an elegant space to host a dinner and drinks reception with close family and friends. The Garden Room also leads to an outdoor terrace, so you can also celebrate 50 years of wedded bliss al-fresco.
Your 50th birthday party
We’d recommend: The Cedar Suite
Looking to celebrate a big milestone birthday in style? Look no further than the Cedar Suite. Accommodating up to 140 people, this space has a 180-degree view over the stunning formal garden plus a private entrance and foyer. If you have a sizeable guest list between 60 and 140 people, this space can be adapted to create a memorable celebration.
A 90th birthday party
We’d recommend: Ivory
If you’d like something big, but a little more relaxed, then the Ivory is a great location. We can serve Champagne afternoon tea for up to 100 people, which makes for a grand celebration with a large number of guests. The spacious room is flooded with natural daylight and has access to a terrace which overlooks our verdant grounds, plus its own entrance and foyer area.
A Bat or Bar Mitzvah
We’d recommend: Amber
Accommodating up to 420 people, this is the place for the event of all events. Spanning 520 square metres of space, it offers panoramic views of the grounds in addition to its own bar, private terrace, private entrance and foyer and direct garden access. It’s always a popular choice for celebrations where the guest list extends beyond a single page!
A family reunion
We’d recommend: The Potting Shed
The Potting Shed is a restored Victorian glasshouse, situated in our stunning Walled Garden. Its casual vibe and rustic setting create a delightfully informal environment for catching up with friends and family. Pair this with a barbecue on a warm summer’s day, and it’s an enviable spot for parties with up to 60 people.
