Be the first one to tell everyone about the experience you’ve had with this supplier.
We offer a reasonably priced alternative for your wedding. Our hire package gives you the exclusive use of the Tuffers room overlooking the cricket ground. There is a kitchen off this room and you are free to use your own caterers. We have tables and chairs you can use to set up the room exactly as you wish. You will need to supply tablecloths and all cutlery and crockery etc. In summer a cricket match is often taking place on Saturdays and guests enjoy this village green feel this brings to the event. In the evening you can use the lovely outside grounds and wedding couples often arrange a barbeque. All money raised from events goes to support the work of The Change Foundation that owns the ground. The Change Foundation uses sport and dance to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people.
