The last remaining Tudor Barn in London, this rustic and oh-so-charming venue is well-equipped to host all manner of festive occasions, whether that is a casual drinks reception featuring mulled wine and mince pies, or a decadent multi-course sit-down dinner of winter warmers.
Although your guests will feel like they’ve been transported to a winter wonderland, Tudor Barn Eltham is actually still within the confines of London, and is a great shout for those who are looking to host a Christmas celebration with a nod to the traditional. This historic site provides a suitably atmospheric setting, thanks to the venue’s original Tudor beams and windows; in fact, the space is full of character and old-school charm, but not distractingly so – white-washed exposed brick walls mean that Tudor Barn Eltham is also something of a blank canvas. Why not set the festive mood with whimsical decorations, such as cutesy garlands of flowers which can be wrapped around the beam work, or sets of twinkling lights that can hang from the ceiling.
Tudor Barn Eltham boasts a dedicated catering team, which means there are a variety of catering options when it comes to your Christmas party. If you’re looking to host a formal gathering, you can opt for a sit-down meal, while more casual affairs are better suited to buffet-style food or even a hearty hog roast. If you’d rather use external catering, the venue has a list of pre-approved suppliers which you can choose from.
It isn’t a Christmas party without a bit of dancing, so you’ll be glad to know that at Tudor Barn Eltham a DJ is included, and there's the option to add on a dancefloor and live music for an additional cost if you wish. Tables can be set out in a variety of arrangements, so you can choose to maximise the space for dancing or keep things more formal with a banquet-style table layout.
