For a city-centre soirée, there’s simply no matching the grand enclaves of Northumbria University.
Situated just a stroll away from the burgeoning Northumberland Street in Newcastle’s heart, the historic buildings of this polytechnic university are the perfect blank canvas for your dream day.
The Great Hall
Greet your guests in glamorous grandeur in The Great Hall, steeped in captivating culture and a wealth of history.
A Grade II listed Victorian stronghold, this vast and opulent building is fit to host a wedding of epic proportions – no matter how big or small your party.
Located within the university’s historic Sutherland Building, The Great Hall has recently been refurbished to couple its original period features with modern day charm.
Make a bold, dramatic entrance as you sweep up the grand staircase, complete with mahogany-hued banisters and original panelling beyond, or, grab your other half for a palatial post-wed pose. Just imagine the insta likes.
Seating up to 120 guests, The Great Hall lives up to its name, with huge lofted ceilings and original floor to ceiling windows, providing a beautiful setting for a reception to remember.
And while you’re surrounded by regal-esque architecture, you might as well dine like a lord and lady.
Opt for a lavish three-course menu cooked by a team of expert chefs, teaming locally-sourced produce with culinary flair and perfect presentation for the ultimate marriage menu.
Alternatively, if the weather holds up, journey outside into the secret garden for an alfresco drinks reception with sensational ‘pop up’ street food stalls – it’s the ultimate summer soirée.
While the city centre location provides excellent accessibility, this private outdoor space with a walled perimeter provides the true tranquility you so yearn for on a day spent with all of your loved ones.
This, coupled with the fact that your wedding party will have exclusive use of the venue on your big day, makes this the ultimate venue for a wedding to remember.
Let their terrific team who are on-hand throughout the process – from planning to on-the-day coordination – execute your dream day with unmatched dedication and a range of bespoke packages available.
