KNUTSFORD wedding venue Leicester Warren Hall has been renamed Larkspur Lodge following a takeover by the team behind The Belle Epoque.

The Bexton Lane venue will host an official open weekend on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28.

Director Matthew Mooney said: “Larkspur is a type of flower that represents love and a pure heart, so we thought it the perfect name.

“The venue has been part of our long-term strategy for the past seven years, so we are delighted to have finally been handed the keys to take the venue forward into 2019 and beyond.”

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

There is also extensive car parking and convenient access from all major routes.

Director Richard Walker said: “Our focus is on providing extraordinary value for bride and bridegrooms, yet still providing an unrivalled level of service and food, and we have a number of plans for the venue including a refurbishment early next year.”

Larkspur Lodge will also be available for Christmas party evenings and other private functions. To find out more contact Sophie at The Belle Epoque. The official website will be launched in the coming weeks.
