THE team behind wedding venue The Belle Epoque has added the Leicester Warren Hall in Knutsford to its portfolio.

Belle Epoque director Matthew Mooney said The Bexton Lane venue would offer a relaxed and less formal setting than The Belle Epoque, highlighting the team’s commitment to cater for all wedding tastes and requirements.

Situated within walking distance of Knutsford town centre, the 18th century barn conversion accommodates up to 130 seated guests, and comes with a separate ceremony room, large bar, gardens and outdoor space.

The venue boasts extensive car parking and convenient access from all major routes.

“We believe Leicester Warren Hall will stand apart from many other barns for a number of reasons,” said operations director Richard Walker.

“Our focus is on providing extraordinary value for brides and bridegrooms, providing an impeccable level of service in a relaxed environment while ensuring venue hire remains a fraction of that charged by similar barn settings.”

Leicester Warren Hall will also be available for Christmas party evenings and other private functions. Inquiries can be directed to The Belle Epoque.

Following a light decoration the venue will undergo a refurbishment in 2019 in addition to a rebrand and name change further down the line.

“We are hugely excited to be adding Leicester Warren Hall to our portfolio,” said Mr Mooney.

“The bo-ho feel of the venue along with its close proximity to Knutsford has always made it somewhat of a tasty prospect for us.

“Part of our long-term strategy for the last seven years, we are delighted to finally make this announcement, and look forward to taking the venue forward into 2019 and beyond.”

The handover will take effect from September, and the venue already has a number of September wedding bookings.

To celebrate the takeover the team is offering a number of last- minute availability packages for the remainder of 2018 and early 2019. Anyone interested should contact Sophie at The Belle Epoque.
