Events at Blandford Manor:

function in Silver Birch copy

We specialise in Elegant and Exclusive functions and thanks to our glorious Botanical Gardens, clients have the option of selecting a location on the rolling lawns or an inside venue for their function.

A venue hire applies for all functions, however many of our menus already include the venue hire charge –

see The Wild Goose Cafe for details on our menus.

Music at the Manor:

Please note that we are very strict about music. No DJ’s or private sound systems may be used under any circumstances, no sound may be played in the gardens as this is a common area shared by other clients (certain circumstances may permit music for short periods), unless you have exclusive use of the property.

The only music that is permitted at the Manor is as follows:

  • Acoustic music – such as acoustic guitars, violins etc permitted provided these instruments are not used in conjunction with amplifiers.
  • Music may be played on our inhouse sound system in the Silver Birch room provided the volume is kept to background levels – our duty manager will monotor sound levels and client must accept his/her guidance as to the volume permitted. Note the volume must be such that our neighbours do not hear the music.
  • Music may be played in our pub at reasonable levels.

Note: No music is permitted after 22h00
