The Monastery

Special Events

This stunning gothic venue is the perfect setting for any special event. With impressively versatile internal spaces, The Monastery’s in-house team can help you create an experience which your guests will never forget.

We can dress and theme an event for up to 600 guests, with outstanding catering and a bespoke support service.  The architectural splendour of this stunning building is complemented by the beautiful garden, to add an extra dimension and real flexibility to your event.

As well as offering a visual feast, the building’s acoustics are outstanding. Whether spoken word or music, the richness of the sound can produce magical results.  It is no surprise that the venue is used for both Television broadcasts and live festivals. From Songs of Praise and Aled Jones’ Choir Of The Year to fashion shows and parties. The Monastery rocks.

We are open to the public most Sundays from 12:00 until 4:00pm. Refreshments are available in the Friars Pantry and there is free parking.
