2021 late availability

If you’re wondering whether 2021 is too soon… don’t. Pick up the phone and speak to our wonderful team – our helpful and dedicated planning team can talk you through how you get from here to there, with their full support every step of the way. The best thing you can do is to call us (0345 130 9966) and ask for our availability and 2021 offers.

We still have some Saturdays and prime dates available in 2022 and 2023 – just a little advice, don’t ponder this too long as we are finding that these are being snapped up rather quickly.

Visiting Notley Abbey

We know that many of you are eager to come and see our venues (thank you!) and we will do our very best to ensure you are given an appointment on your preferred day and time.

We are continuing to do what we can to protect our staff, and upcoming weddings, so we kindly ask that you help us by maintaining our Covid-safe practice. This includes wearing a mask inside our venues, sanitising at every opportunity, and keeping socially distanced from our staff. We will ensure that our venues are well ventilated, and our thermal cameras switched on to detect anyone with a high temperature.

If you would rather view our venues from the comfort of your own home then we have very snazzy systems in place to allow you to keep the show on the road and would be delighted to take you on a virtual tour to discuss your plans and ideas, and give you a bespoke quote – all via online video chat.

Virtual tours will continue to be available 7 days a week.
