Venue Hire | Social & Family Celebrations

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, so offering our space and services to those who share our sustainability values is our pleasure. We’d love to help you celebrate!

Features include:

  • Licensed bar

  • Bar and serving staff
  • Courtyard for outside space
  • Seating for up to 65 (120 max capacity)
  • Space for a band/DJ and dancing

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.”
