If you’re planning a big event – such as a wedding, milestone birthday, a fund-raiser, conference or exhibition – the Gatefield Hall is the largest room for hire in the area. It can seat 250 for a conference, 160 for a dinner dance or 300 for drinks and canapé reception. It’s also popular for lectures and public consultations, as well as exhibitions and fairs.
The Gatefield Hall was added onto the Alexander Centre in the 1960s, when modernist architecture first became popular. It is a superb example of the ‘Danish look’, which has now become newly fashionable again. Recently re-vamped by top interior designer, Sue Timney, and leading architect, Nigel Lee Evans of the award-winning Lee Evans Partnership. It is a highly versatile contemporary space. As well as being ideal for lectures or public consultations, it can also be dressed up or used in a number ways, from musical gigs to romantic weddings.
It has its own large catering kitchen and adjoining bar, and opens onto a walled garden. The Gatefield Hall is licensed for civil weddings and partnerships. It’s versatile and spacious – ideal for ceremonies of 50-150+ guests, depending on how the hall is arranged.
