Weddings

About the hall: Wanstrow Village Hall offers a unique venue for your wedding celebrations. It is situated in the Somerset countryside yet easily accessible from the surrounding towns. With its modern, sprung dance floor, easy access to the adjoining playing field, patio where you can erect a marquee extension and car park directly in front of the hall it offers itself as an ideal place for your special day.

Wedding package: We offer  a one-price hire package from Friday lunch time through to Sunday midday with all the facilities included – white bone china crockery, cutlery,  and fully equipped kitchen with range cooker – which is very popular as it gives plenty of preparation and clearing-up time.

Please note: our package price for non-residents is £800, the recent increase is to cover losses and cleaning costs and extra admin incurred. The package for residents remains at £500. There is a damage deposi of £200 which is fully returnable provided no extra cleaning costs or crockery breakages are incurred. Please provide a separate cheque for this.

However, if you are just having an evening party or disco, then you may also hire the hall on an hourly basis at £20 per hour plus a one-off kitchen charge of £20. Please contact us  with your requirements on our booking form.

The Hall facilities: The Hall can comfortaby seat 120 people and the kitchen is ideal for the preparation of the wedding breakfast. We have an alcohol and entertainments licence, and a PA system for speeches.

For the evening entertainment there are versatile stage blocks to provide the ideal setting for a band or disco. We make a small charge for setting these up.

We have a number of links to caterers, florists, car hire companies, seat cover providers, cake makers, discos, a speech writer, accommodation and taxis.

The children at the wedding can use the public playing field which is adjacent to the hall. And adult guests can use the boules pitch (provide your own boules or hire from us).
