Party time at The Hall Barns

NIght time at The Hall Barns rocks. As the sun goes down, we’ll light the fire pits and make sure there’s plenty of marshmallows for end-of-the-night S’mores. The tastiest way to wrap up your corporate festival.  

It wouldn’t be a proper festival without camping, so if you like the idea of stretching out the celebrations overnight, we’ve got you covered. At The Hall Barns we have a fully equipped on-site camping with glamping pods available to hire. There’s also plenty of space to pitch your own tents.

make your corporate festival one to remember


If you want to pack your corporate festival with fun activities, Eventurous at The Hall Barns has got your back. We can organise anything from It’s a Knockout-esque inflatable runs (watch that competitive spirit come out) to retro-tastic Gladiators inflatable battles in the grounds of our venue.

Live music

Any decent festival needs good music, and we’ve got all the space you need for a live band or DJ to keep the party vibe going. The Hall Barns’ Crew Yard is a cool, undercover space for everyone to show off their best dance moves. If you need more room, Eventurous can organise a tipi in the grounds of The Hall Barns, complete with sound systems and dancefloor. Glow sticks optional, but heartily encouraged.
