Venue Hire Newcastle

A destination that is versatile and capable enough to host ALL kinds of events – be they private or corporate events – with grace, elegance, and sophistication is hard to come by. That our warm venue can do that so efficiently and so beautifully is a testament to our dedication, refinement, and adaptability.

We are The Parlour, a tranquil, exclusive manor destination on the Blagdon Estate in plush Northumberland, ten minutes drive north of Newcastle.

We are located within easy reach of Newcastle, Gosforth, Morpeth, and Ponteland. On arrival at our venue, you would be blown away by the capacity. We have a car parking space for you and your companions and disabled access for people with special needs.

What to expect from us for your private and corporate events?

First off, you gain access to our Arcadian grounds, outfitted with celestial gardens and impressive structures. We offer a selection of choice rooms that can be booked privately during the day; from 11:30 am to 4pm or evenings 7pm till 12pm. Well-behaved pets are allowed on our premises and we make a lot of similar concessions to ensure that our guests are well and comfortable.

Our staff, well-trained personnel of character and grace are here to transform the location into whatever you need. Your articulation of your requirements is our only limitation as far as we are willing to accommodate your event – this tells you that we are open for ALL private and corporate events.

What Private events can we host? You name it. Birthdays, baby showers, weddings, themed parties, anniversaries, and VIP events, are just a few events we specialise in. You would be provided with an in-house Master of Ceremony, access to our dining area, a DJ if you need one, and a buffet or a formal meal, depending on your choice.

Are you looking for a perfect spot to treat your co-worker or subordinates at the end of the financial year? Do you have a presentation you would like to show within a serene environment? The Parlour is the place for you because we have rooms that would suit your needs.
