The Main Hall is part of the original family home and had been used by the Lowther family as a reception area and ballroom.
The Main Hall is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 150 guests.
It can also be used for dining for up to 100 guests, or if dining is held in the Education Centre it is frequently used for dancing.
For a sit down meal of 100 guests or more we recommend using both the Hall and the adjoining Education Centre.
The Main Hall is used for as a catering space for large and small conferences.
For smaller conferences (up to 80 people) in the Education Centre it makes an ideal catering area as it adjoins that room through two large doorways.
For conferences based in the Ondaatje Theatre with more than 150 delegates, the Main Hall is used in addition to the Map Room and Education Centre, if required.
