Refurbished For You

In March 2016, the Thomas Prior Hall venue underwent some refurbishments with only our guests’ needs in mind. Our venue now contains:
• Blackout blinds
• Stylish contemporary bar
• Mobile dance floor
• Advanced PA system
• Inbuilt lighting systems
The newly installed air conditioning units (tactfully disguised behind the ornate wooden panelling) mean that your guests will remain cool and comfortable throughout the gala dinner.
