Offering a range of flexible spaces, Belgrave Hall is a great place to host your wedding, meeting, workshop, seminar, product launch, drinks reception, charity event, summer picnic, family celebration or performance.

Looking for potential wedding venues? Visit our Weddings at Leicester Museums & Galleries pages.

A range of rooms and spaces are available for hire, all adaptable to meet your needs, from meeting rooms inside the hall and stable block, to outdoor spaces that are perfect for team exercises, performances or parties. In the spring and summer, the alpine lawn houses a marquee which can host anything from history lectures and corporate events to anniversary celebrations and birthday parties.

We also take bookings from organisations and commercial groups who wish to use our venue for events such as craft classes, ghost watches, murder mysteries and pop-up dining. Whatever the occasion, our dedicated team will be on-hand to support you from the planning stage to the day itself, helping you to have a seamless and successful event.

We welcome outside caterers and our converted stable block offers a full catering kitchen. A temporary kitchen and servery can also be set up in the grounds. External caterers are permitted to bring on site catering equipment providing they produce all relevant documentation to ensure all electrical equipment is certificated in advance. Gas powered catering equipment is not permitted in any of our indoor spaces including our marquee facilities.

We also host Children's Parties and Ghost Nights, see those pages for more information.
