Claire & Anne are in the office daily and Saturday morning (but not Saturdays in August) to help meet your needs. Please call on 01425 472 613. If you email please try and give as much information as you can, such as kind of event, preferred date(s), any catering needs and numbers expected. Many thanks!
Booking a room or hall & catering
Rooms and halls are booked by sessions. A session is a morning, afternoon or twilight/evening. So for example, a booking for a full day, but not evening, would be 2 sessions. Charges vary according to a number of factors, including the day and time, possible use of a kitchen and any equipment loans. In addition, the rates are adjusted based on the hirer and there are 4 levels to reflect this – affiliated clubs/societies, classes, non-affiliated group/societies and commercial. In giving “session rates from” alongside and below, please understand these are simply to give some indication and help for your planning. As explained, the final actual session charge may be more.
There are several options to help you – for example, you can choose to have full use of a kitchen, including crockery so you can manage your own catering. Or you can prepare your food outside, but still have some kitchen use.
Another choice is to hire your tables, chairs, covers etc from outside. A wedding reception in Summer 2016 used “Dine-In” based at 506, Wallisdown Road, Bournemouth, tel 01202 526 121 and website (click to open) www.dine-in.co.uk/hire.htm Please see below the “Ann Rose Hall” image for how this looked.
The Greyfriars Special Events team can manage catering for Greyfriars members or Greyfriars clubs – for example, a celebration lunch, a tea, or meal in the evening. Please ask the Office for a quote.
