High ceilings, original arches, a stained glass window and fascinating history provide a wonderful atmosphere. It seats 85, with standing room for 120, but is equally suitable for smaller groups. Adjacent to the nave is the annex which is a perfect break out space, reception or refreshments area.

We suggest the following options for room layout, though you are free to arrange it as you wish.

Refreshments

St Ethelburga’s can provide tea, coffee and biscuits for small groups and you are welcome to provide your own sandwiches or buffet style lunches / refreshments. The kitchen has basic crockery and cutlery which you are free to use, but if your event is more formal (or if you don’t want to do the washing up) you may want to hire in your own or bring paper cups / plates.

If you are planning a sit-down reception, catered or corporate event, our hire partners Seasoned Events can offer a fully catered, staffed hire. For these bookings, please contact gemma.jenkins@seasonedevents.co.uk
