The Livery Hall is the largest of the function rooms. Gleaming oak flooring and carved oak panelling originating from the 1600's, together with huge stained glass windows give this room an impressive ambience. This room is particularly suitable for larger events from conferences, roadshows and exhibitions to formal luncheons, dinners and receptions. The Hall can also be hired for filming and fashion shows.
The huge stained glass windows, backlit for evening events, depict William Shakespeare, William Caxton, St Cecelia, William Tynedale and Archbishop Cranmer. The larger north window purports to display Edward IV and his Queen, Elizabeth Woodville, being shown a proof by William Caxton.
At the south end there is a carved screen, surmounted by a Minstrels’ Gallery, which may be used for small bands or choirs. Candlelight and music is permitted in this room, as is dancing by prior arrangement.
Thank you all so much for delivering such an excellent lunch. Your style and professionalism more than matched this royal event.
