Receptions

In the picturesque Waveney Valley, Hales Hall & The Great Barn can seat up to 180 guests for a wedding breakfast and 300 standing for an evening reception.

In beautiful South Norfolk countryside, yet only 13 miles from Norwich, Hales Hall & The Great Barn is complete with a fully licensed bar, integrated lighting and sound system, raised stage, a four metre projection screen, underfloor heating and a Gallery upstairs, boasting stunning views across the fields. The Gallery can be used throughout your day as a relaxed lounge, retreat for the married couple or an area for Champagne and canapés.

The Great Barn has a gravelled terrace with outdoor seating in our ‘cart store’ for you and your guests to enjoy throughout the day along with the lawn for post – ceremonial drinks and games. The beautiful gardens of Hales Hall, including established herbaceous plants and trees, topiary and a moated area with a fountain, are available to provide a stunning backdrop for your wedding photographs.

Inside the Grade I Listed Tudor barn our bespoke lighting and sound system can be tailored to create the ambience you desire and provide background music during the ceremony and wedding breakfast and outstanding acoustics for bands or DJs in the evenings. There are modern bathroom facilities including a baby changing area, housed in the adjacent stables.

We also offer an in – house wedding catering facility, provided by sister company Picnic, and can cater for every taste from traditional 3 course set menus to bespoke menus reflecting your ideas and personalities.

Our years’ of experience in hosting weddings and events at The Great Barn means that we can assist with every detail of your wedding and can suggest reliable, local suppliers for your every need and help coordinate your day.

We are also happy to consider any specific catering requirements you have and recommend suitable companies.
