Situated in beautifully landscaped, part-moated gardens, the marquee offers unrivalled views over the picturesque Essex countryside. Boasting a large, custom-built bar and lounge seating area, chandeliers and fairy lights and complete with dancefloor area, with starlit ceiling canopy, our marquee is perfect for both daytime and evening events hosting anywhere from 30 to 180 guests. It is fully heated during the cooler months, can be opened along one side to make the most of the gardens during the summer and with plenty of space both indoors and out, it is the perfect year-round setting.
de Beauvoir Suite and Orangery
In the main venue we have two function rooms available for more intimate events.
The De Beauvoir suite is our main dining room, boasting a large, original bay window, sumptuous décor and views of the beautiful St. Margaret’s Church on the hill above the Hall. The De Beauvoir suite can seat 25-36 guests for private events.
The Orangery, with beautiful views of the Essex countryside to the rear of the venue and direct access to the picturesque grounds of Downham Hall, is ideal for smaller events of 10-24 guests.
