Parties and weddings

You may not have thought of using an arts and community centre in Barnard Castle as a base for your special day, but we have lots to offer you. Be that an evening ‘do’ after your wedding, or the exclusive use of our venue so that you can bring your staff for a good night out. Or maybe you’re looking for a large secure space to host a children’s party.

With two national awards for architecture combining heritage and contemporary styles, the environment is welcoming yet stylish. Your adult guests would be within strolling distance of riverside walks, the castle (an English Heritage site), the Bowes Museum, blue plaque trails, and many independent shops. Surrounded by the fabulous countryside of the Durham and North Yorkshire moors this is a stunning area for your guests to spend a night or two and celebrate with you.

Our food is prepared on site using only the best locally-sourced ingredients. We can provide your guests with Prosecco and canapés or afternoon tea. For your celebration, mobile caterers can set up in the courtyard or bar and the band or disco of your choice can help you to dance the night away in the characterful Victorian Music Hall. Do talk to us to explore what’s possible.
