After the speeches have taken place and your wedding breakfast reaches its finale, our Events Team will ensure a smooth transition into your evening party.
While guests relax over coffee on the Orchard Barn terrace, or enjoy cocktails at the bar, this airy, contemporary barn takes on its role as your party space.
On visiting Blackwell Grange, it is easy to see how the Orchard Barn can accommodate up to 200 guests for an evening celebration. The generously proportioned barn features full-height ceilings with exposed beams and an underfloor heated grey sandstone floor throughout, which works perfectly as a dance floor.
There is ample space for your chosen entertainment and for dancing, whether you decide to get the party started with a live band or a DJ. Of course, you may like to have some tables and chairs around the room for guests to rest their dancing feet from time to time.
The other areas of the Orchard Barn also come into their own as your evening party evolves. Guests may choose to take a moment away from the entertainment and mingle in the bar. Alternatively, at the top of the helical staircase, they will find the Snug, a lavish mezzanine area with sofas and armchairs. This is the place to relax, overlooking the party below, enjoying a moment of calm without missing out on the action below!
Evening food at Blackwell Grange offers an element of theatre from the team at Galloping Gourmet, from elaborate live food stations to a firepit barbecue to delicious pizza from our wood-fired pizza oven in the Walled Herb Garden.
As the evening draws to a close, the Hayloft Honeymoon Cottage awaits the newlyweds. Additional bedrooms for guests will be unveiled later in 2017 and 2018, making Blackwell Grange one of only a few barn wedding venues with accommodation.
