A Versatile and Unique Venue for your Function. Dronfield Hall Barn is an ideal place for any occasion worth celebrating such as:

  • Dinners and Lunches
  • Wedding Receptions
  • Anniversaries and Other Special Days
  • Baptisms and Funerals

The historic barn is on two floors; the first floor being the gallery while the ground floor houses a small Heritage Centre and Refreshment Area. Users may book both floors for evening events where the complete ground floor is closed to the public and used as a welcoming bar area before retiring upstairs to the banqueting room with medieval timbered ceiling.

All day refreshments and quality buffets can be made available if required.

We offer two rooms for private meetings: the medieval timbered gallery with seating theatre style for 70 and a modern seminar room for up to 20 delegates which has access to the courtyard and historic gardens.

Wine and spirit licences can be arranged at reasonable notice where required and our resident catering staff are always on hand to discuss your drink requirements, which need to be booked in advance.

Intending users may find that an art exhibition is on in the building when they wish to use it for a meeting or function. Where both parties agree, the two will co-exist, the artwork on the walls providing an ideal background for that special event.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements and to find out how Dronfield Hall Barn can help you achieve a very special event.

The Ideal Place for Meetings Dronfield Hall Barn is an ideal meeting point for:

  • Voluntary Organisations
  • Business and Commerce
  • Government including NHS
  • Schools and Colleges
  • Exhibitors of arts and crafts

We offer two rooms for private meetings: the medieval timbered gallery with seating theatre style for 70 and the other the modern seminar room for up to 20 delegates which has access to the courtyard and historic gardens. This historic timber framed building with striking modern extension provides an ideal contrast to the everyday surroundings of the average conference establishment. The two rooms are well suited to all sorts of groups including schools, colleges, businesses and societies. Ideal for an inspiring local history tour, a special staff training away day or just for the opportunity to hold a meeting in a unique space.

Special board meetings, conferences, product launches or team celebrations all fit well in the quality surroundings of Dronfield Hall Barn with its unique ambiance. The £1.1m renovation and extension project has resulted in detailed attention to all historic features and décor. The LED art lighting can strikingly illuminate wall posters and 3D exhibits.

All areas of the building offer excellent facilities for Wi-Fi and audio visual displays both on plasma screens and high definition projectors. Large professional quality screens and surround sound offer possibilities for documentary film shows or live screenings. Enquire about these facilities when you make your booking.

The rooms themselves are only a starting point because the history of this building and the town itself has been extensively researched from Medieval times. Members of our team can be booked to make special presentations a range of topics, including:

  • Medieval Dronfield
  • The 17th and 18th century lead mining families
  • The Lucas iron founding dynasty
  • Dating timber framed buildings
  • A history of Dronfield Hall Barn

All day refreshments are served in the coffee lounge and in summer guests may enjoy the high quality light meals and non-alcoholic beverages carefully prepared by our resident caterers, Creative Chef, who will also offer delicious lunches, dinners as well as buffets starting from £7.00 a head.
