Is there accommodation to sleep all of our guests within walking distance?
We can sleep 26 guests here at Deans Court, and we are a two-minute walk from the town centre which has hotels, B&Bs and guest houses.
Can guests park at Deans Court?
Guests can park in the field just over the bridge – it is accessible via our Deans Court Lane entrance.
There is space for 150 cars. Naturally alternative arrangements would need to be arranged in the case of wet weather. Guests may leave cars overnight, and collect by 11:30 the next day.
What are the toilet facilities?
We have our very own Shepherd’s Hut style toilet trailer situated next to the marquee, which is included in the venue hire. It has three ladies cubicles, one gents, and two urinals. There are steps to get into it, so if you have guests with special access requirements, you may need to look into hiring a special trailer.
Will the marquee be cool/warm enough?
The marquee is actually in a nicely shaded area, so the sun does not beat down on it all day - and we can roll up one side if we need to. Also the marquee is double lined, so it keeps it’s warmth in the evening (especially with all those bodies dancing!) Touch wood - we’ve never had a problem - but if you are concerned, we can help you hire marquee heaters.
Can we use Fireworks or Sky Lanterns?
Unfortunately not - with livestock close by, fireworks sends them into a mad rush, and sky lanterns and floating candles cause problems.
Have you thought about low-level silent fireworks, like Catherine Wheels or perhaps sparklers?
What are the bar and music end times?
We have a license to play music until 11pm, and to serve at the bar until 11:30pm.
I have another question…
