The Courthouse offers a very different setting for your wedding reception, birthday party, or celebrations of any kind. Converted from a nineteenth century magistrates’ court the building still has many of its original features and you can even have your photos taken in the old original heritage cell!

The main courtroom measure 12 metres x 10 metres and is a blank canvas just waiting to be transformed for your special occasion. It has a sprung dance floor, full lighting, PA system and sound equipment.

We provide a fully stocked bar and, with consultation, can order in ‘special’ drinks if requested.

We offer a bespoke service, tailor made to your requirements, with your own dedicated party organiser whose sole purpose is to ensure your event runs smoothly.

Costs are individually tailored depending on your requirements. An estimate can be given after you see the facilities yourself and meet with your party organiser.

Please see below testimonials from some of our satisfied customers – and recommended Caterers, Florists, DJs, Photographers …

“I couldn’t have hoped for a better evening. The Courthouse is a wonderful well organised venue with exceptionally friendly and enthusiastic staff and helpers, which all made for a very special 50th birthday.”

Ian Brand.

‘Brief Encounter ’  Fancy dress party

“From the first contact, the staff at the Courthouse could not have done more to be accommodating. On every level, and at every step, we were happy with how the event was planned. The night itself was wonderful, due, in no small part, to the efficiency and pleasantness of all of the Courthouse staff. A thousand thanks!”

Terry and Emma Bradford.   Wedding reception.

“Thank you so much for making our wedding party just perfect. All our friends said how friendly and helpful you had all been. The room was beautiful, including the colour co-ordinated lighting. From the moment we arrived you really helped the whole party run smoothly, and we felt very looked after.”
