Description
Cannon Hall Museum offers a unique venue for weddings and civil partnerships. Set in 70 acres of parkland, the Hall and beautiful surroundings provide a stunning setting for your wedding.

The Library and the Ballroom are licensed for weddings and receptions. These events can be held either in the Hall or in the Walled Garden.

You have a choice of two rooms within Cannon Hall:

The Library was added to the existing house in the 1760s by John Spencer to house his collection of books. The furniture in the room includes examples of work by Chippendale and Hepplewhite. The Library will seat up to 20 guests for a civil wedding ceremony.

The Ballroom was part of a wing added as an extension to Cannon Hall in 1891. Its fine dark oak paneling and minstrels gallery give it the appearance of a Jacobean Hall. The Ballroom will seat up to 90 guests for a civil wedding ceremony.

After the wedding ceremony champagne receptions are available, either inside in the Spencer Wing or outdoors in the Walled Garden.

The Spencer Wing is also available for a sit down meal or buffet, but it is not suitable for dancing or entertainment. This room can accommodate 60 people seated around tables or 80-90 buffet style and offers a kitchen and bar facility.

For smaller receptions, the atmospheric Servants Hall is available and seats approximately 40 guests.

You can also take advantage of the beautiful parkland by arranging a marquee. The marquee is positioned centrally in the park and overlooks the lake, with Cannon Hall itself providing a breathtaking backdrop.
