"Our evidence speaks for itself..."

Customer experiences of The Old Shire Hall & Judges' House

"We had a great day, and a lot of that is down to our surroundings and the service we received. The venue is superb, and to be able to hold our meeting in the Judge’s Dining Room was extra special. We were very well looked after, what with the constant supply of tea, coffee, pastries and fruit. The fresh fruit smoothies went down very well! Lunch was excellent – one of the best I have had at a conference event, and the homemade flapjacks in the afternoon were an unexpected treat. Thanks for the tour too! I have had really positive feedback from the team and to be able to go into the cell area and the dungeon made the day." Daniel Gutteridge, Acting Director of Legal, Ofqual

We like surprising people. That’s what a great event does. When you use a building that’s quirky and cool like the Old Shire Hall – most of our job has been done for us! It is a pleasure to be uplighting amazing features rather than having to add character to a plain space. The great thing about the Old Shire Hall is that it isn’t just one surprise. It’s surprise after surprise. There are so many different areas in the Old Shire Hall – it’s an event organiser’s dream, where else can you set up a bar in a court room, have pre-dinner drinks in the Judge’s Dining Room – or be brave enough to venture down into the prison cells…and as guests move through their programme there is the ‘wow’ after ‘wow’. So Old Shire Hall is a brilliant space. That’s a given. But the Old Shire Hall is a gem is because of the team that support your event. They are pro-active and so willing to help you create your vision. We work with a number of venues and believe me this is a rarity. The pre-event management under Harriet is brilliant. She’s so experienced, she immediately understands what you want to achieve and helps to do just that. The food is outstanding; the service is quick and well co-ordinated given the size of the room. I am convinced that if Old Shire Hall was in London, there would be a three year waiting list.’ Emma Wellstead, Managing Director, Warwick Events, Stratford-upon-Avon

"It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Harriet Lund and her team at The Old Shire Hall on our charity midsummer ball 2018, which 254 people attended. During the planning stage, Harriet was always responsive, efficient, accommodating and supportive. On the night, the food was great and the service excellent, including the liaison with our organising team. Many guests commented on the stunning venue and we think it helped us to sell out a month before the event and exceed our fundraising target. Thank you to all involved at The Old Shire Hall." Paula Jones, Development Manager, Safeline Warwick

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day so special on 11th May. It really was the most amazing day, and all our guests remarked on how wonderful the venue and food for our reception was. Mr & Mrs Phillips
