Completed in 1889, it has now been restored to its former grandeur.

Guests will be able to explore the imposing Council Room with its portraits of previous Rectors, take a glass of fizz in the wonderful South facing Solar Room with its exotic paintings and wander into the peaceful walled Courtyard Garden. completed in 1889 and has been restored to its former grandeur.

Live jazz will be playing throughout the evening.
