Adapt the Special Wedding Offer Deal
for your Large Birthday Party
with 50 Guests Staying Overnight:
You can adapt our popular Special Wedding Offer Deal to create an evening meal and drinks package at £40 per head. The Deal applies only if you have 50 guests staying overnight on the same basis as the wedding offer Deal. Then you will get the venue for free.
See the Special Offer Deal for details:
To convert the £40 / head Wedding Deal into a Large Birthday Party event, simply substitute the 'Wedding Breakfast' element (@ £35 of the £40) and the 'Welcome Drinks' element (@ £5 of the £40) for a two course evening meal at £35/ head to include the castle venue for free, and add £5.00 per head behind the bar or put it towards wine on tables.
Alternatively, have an evening carvery or buffet in the main function room at the Members Tariff £15 per head Buffet rate, or have one of the larger buffets on the Regular Tariff.
You could even put on a show or hire a well known performer in the Theatre. One Birthday party client hired Joe Longthorne privately, while another even put on their own opera.
Use our Members Tariff to organise
a brilliant value Exclusive Birthday party
for 75 guests (minimum) or more:
If you are unable to arrange for 50 guests to stay overnight, then see the Members Tariff deals which you can also adapt to your Birthday party event.
For example you could hire the main function room at the Members Tariff of £622.50 (a reduction from £830.00) at weekends, or just £415.00 Sunday to Thursday (a reduction from the mid-week rate of £622.50 on regular tariff), if you joined the Members Club.
You could then organise a buffet for £15.00 per head or go for the same £40 a head Dinner and Drinks Deal above (formal Dinner and Wine on tables). Or you could offer your guests a two course Carvery, waitress served from the Function Room serving station.
The minimum number is 75 guests to qualify for this Members discounted Tariff. Higher numbers (above 125) give you the whole castle venue exclusively for your party, for free.
Examples of Costings under Members Tariff:
A weekday birthday party hiring the function room, main bar, and giving your guests a buffet meal would cost just £1,540 for 75 guests, or £1,747.50 at a weekend.
Formal Dinner Option:
Or you could opt for a full sit down dinner with drinks on tables for £3,415 weekdays or £3,622.50 weekends.
There is now no venue hire but you would only be able to use one main function room and bar - either the Conservatory and its rather small bar or the main function room and Patti Bar. So you would then give your guests a £15 buffet meal for £1500 all in.
Formal Dinner Option:
Or you could opt for a proper sit down dinner with drinks on the table for £4,000.
Above 125 guests, you get the whole castle for free - no venue hire.
You would need to join as a Member to get on to this discounted tariff - details on Membership here.
