Wedding ceremonies, receptions, exhibitions, parties, barbeques, plays, meetings, banquets… we offer a majestic and truly rustic venue.
For spring to autumn use there are the impressive, enormous Long Barns. You can hire both together along with the garden and ancillary rooms. Licensed for marriage ceremonies for any number of guests up to 200 but suitable for smaller functions too. Having two huge barns at your disposal means the weather really doesn’t matter: there is space for eating and relaxing and space for partying too.
The gorgeous, cosy Old Barn is for year-round use. It is licensed for 60 at a ceremony, 100 for a party.
We hold few events at this historic location so that we can ensure each one is truly unique. Our trees, drapes and flowers create an unforgettable setting. If you would like to know more, contact email@example.com
18th Century Barns
The barns were built in the early eighteenth century when grain prices rocketed during/after the Napoleonic Wars. They shot to fame when the children’s series Worzel Gummidge was filmed here in the late 1970s. Now the farm is owned by the not-for-profit Old Michelmersh Farm Trust: Rustic Barn Events helps facilitate events. Profits are used for the upkeep of these historic buildings.
For spring through autumn we offer:
- Full use of the two interlocking Long Barns, giving you adjoining locations for your ceremony/wedding breakfast/reception
- Both barns have a spectacular network of early eighteenth-century beams
- Both barns have stunning mood lighting on the beams, flood lighting for the floor and, after dark, very pretty starlight lasers on the roof
- There are additional rooms for the use of florists, caterers etc
- We are converting the stable block this winter into 5 WCs, a bridal room with WC and a registrar’s room
- Both barns are licensed for 200 at a wedding ceremony
- And either barn can take 200 for a buffet or up to 140 for a sit-down meal
- We are building a wedding terrace surrounded by trees and flowers for outdoor ceremonies
