Celebrate: Weddings and Parties
At Wolfson, we simply love parties! Come to us with your reason for celebration, and we'll give you the space and style, service and support to make it happen. Whether it's a Wedding reception, a Club Dinner Dance, a Corporate Awards Evening, a milestone birthday, anniversary or simply a party for the sake of it, Wolfson's hallmark flexibility will ensure that your function is truly yours.
Your guests will be able to enjoy the exquisite riverside setting, with its summer opportunities for drinks on the Terrace, jazz in the Quad, games on the Harbour Lawn, and year-round attraction as a photogenic backdrop. Indoors, a marble foyer and modern art create an impressive impact, whilst the neutral wooden decor provides the perfect compliment to your chosen colour scheme and decorations.
Moveable furniture allows you to choose from round and rectangular tables set in rows, E-shape, 'satellites', arcs and almost infinite variations. After your meal the furniture can be cleared to turn the whole of the Hall into a giant dance floor - or keep it intimate with cabaret seating around a Cash Bar. Excellent acoustics enable easy conversation, with a PA system for speeches, and staging plus a piano for entertainers. Plenty of parking and disabled access ensure stress-free arrivals and departures for your guests, as well as smooth setting up for your suppliers.
Menus range from formal banqueting to served buffet to gourmet BBQ, and without pre-set packages, can be adapted to your tastebuds and budget. Tables are beautifully laid with linens, crested crockery, silver cutlery and sparkling glassware, with flowers, menu cards and place cards all adding to the sense of occasion.
And the genuine warmth and friendliness of our staff, dedicated exclusively to your service, gives your celebration our complete attention from start to finish.
Contact us to talk through your special occasion.
