Venue Hire | Life & Family Celebrations

Baby namings, wakes, anniversaries and birthdays

Your Home From Home

Gatherings of family and friends are often too much to take on at home. Even if you have the time, energy and wherewithal to organise an event yourself, sufficient space and equipment pose their own challenges. Celebrating key points along the journey of life is part of the human experience though, so offering our space and services to those who share our sustainability values is our pleasure. We’d love to help you celebrate important occasions like:

  • Special birthday & anniversary celebrations
  • Memorials, wakes & end of life celebrations
  • Baby naming & christenings
Outside The Fold

We have two great spaces for family celebrations at The Fold:

The Cart House

The Cart House
Size: 10.5m x 7m
Features: Oak floor, bathroom, kitchenette.
Availability: please contact The Fold for availability

The Cafe

The Fold Cafe makes for a versatile space, equally beautiful in daylight hours or after dark. The cafe is a working cafe 7 days a week and is available for private hire from 6pm.

As well as the two indoor spaces above, we can also offer our covered barn if outdoor or additional space is required.

The Courtyards

A Word About Wakes

We provide a welcoming and sympathetic space for end of life and memorial celebrations here at The Fold, and are just as happy to create a fully-catered event in a private space as we are to simply reserve a large table in the cafe for you, during our normal opening hours, with pre-arranged refreshments for your family and other guests. Here are a couple of touching testimonials we’ve received over the years:

“I just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of all the family for the lovely wake that you prepared for my Mum. You did a fantastic job, and everything was perfect. Mum loved The Fold and it was one of her favourite places and we couldn’t have asked for a better celebration of her life.”

“Thank you so much for arranging such a lovely time for us. The whole atmosphere and all the organic refreshments were perfectly in keeping with my husbands approach to life, and so very much in tune with the rest of the day.”

Get In Touch
