A christening in the Charles Grey Room
Charles Gray Room
The Charles Gray Room is being fully refurbished as part of the Castle refurbishment project, and will be available to hire for a range of private and corporate uses from the date of the Castle opening in Spring 2014.
The Charles Gray Room is a beautiful and fully accessible room sited on the first floor of the largest Norman Keep in Europe and makes Colchester Castle Museum, in the centre of Colchester, an ideal venue to celebrate wedding receptions and other family occasions, as well as being an excellent corporate event venue.
The room is available during the day or evening. Evening hires include exclusive use of the Castle galleries as well as the room itself. During the day, the room can hold between 60-70 people theatre style or 60 cabaret style, for evening functions (buffets etc) the room can hold around 100 people standing, however if you would like everyone seated around tables the figure would be around 60 - 80 people depending on the layout required.
There are two large floor to ceiling doors in the room which can be opened out onto the galleries - If these doors are opened out onto the galleries the hire can accommodate up to 200 people, as not everyone will be in the room at the same time. The cost of room hire includes: tables, chairs, microphones, lectern, flipchart, projector screen, OHP. Refreshments and PowerPoint facilities (laptop and projector) can be provided on request for an additional charge.
Each individual booking is priced on a bespoke basis. To discuss your requirements, find out more and arrange a visit to view the venue, please contact Pippa Pickles on 01206 282927 or email email@example.com
