The Museum is a versatile venue, suitable for parties of all shapes and sizes. Whether you’re looking to celebrate a significant birthday, a corporate networking event or a festive get-together, our historic spaces make an inspirational backdrop.

We can cater for a whole host of functions and corporate events including:
