The former home and estate of one of Britain's most prominent 20th-Century artists, this stunning venue is the perfect setting for corporate and private events, such as board meetings, team away days, big-0 birthday bashes and weddings. The Studios and Gardens are set in the magnificent Hertfordshire countryside on a 70-acre estate, providing the perfect sweet spot between rural idyll and conveniently commutable from London.
The contemporary visitor centre, Dane Tree House, overlooks the beautiful sculpture lawns, providing the ideal space for fresh thinking. The Interpretation Suite comes fully equipped with a 75” HD LCD screen, Wi-Fi and flip charts, and can be configured in a variety of ways to suit your needs. The room can accommodate up to 70 seated delegates when used on its own, or up to 180 when combined with the adjoining café area. As Henry Moore Studios & Gardens are closed to the public from November to March and on Mondays and Tuesdays throughout the year, you’ll enjoy exclusive use of the meeting and events spaces in Dane Tree House as part of the hire fee during this period.
Distinctly un-modern is the venue’s gorgeous 16th-Century Aisled Barn, which is a popular choice for weddings in the area. Decorated with unique tapestries, the Barn provides a unique backdrop to any event, though it’s particularly suited to drinks receptions and formal dinners. The Aisled Barn is always offered on an exclusive basis but during summer months the grounds are shared with the public until early evening from Wednesday-Sunday.
Each booking benefits from a dedicated event co-ordinator and car parking, though the venue is only a short distance from Bishop’s Stortford, Hertford and Harlow train stations. When it comes to food and drink, the venue can provide a list of approved caterers who can provide everything from freshly ground coffee and pastries to light buffet lunches and multi-course dinners. Please note that in order to protect its historic tapestries, the venue does not allow red wine to be served in the Aisled Barn.
