Who thinks we are going to have snow for half term? We still have about 2 cm left from the weekend. Quite a lot melted yesterday when the temperature peaked at 2 degrees C! Everything froze up again overnight giving the snow that lovely crunching sound when you walk on it.
We are holding our first open day the year on Sunday 29th January from 10am till 3pm. The Hall will be open as well as all the apartments.
This is not a wedding fair, so there will be no exhibitors or stalls, it is just a good opportunity to come and have a look around. This can be for couples looking for a wedding venue or for those who have already booked to come an have another look around.
We will also be around all day to answer any questions.
We look forward to seeing you on the 29th

So we have finally had our first snow of the winter – I wish we hadn’t !!
We are now looking for a replacement, so if you have booked the marquee for your wedding, DON’T PANIC! We will get one, either our own or from our local marquee hire company.
We are holding a Christmas Market and Open House on Thursday 8th December from 4pm till 8pm.
Come and meet Santa and his Reindeer, enjoy Pizza and Mulled Wine, buy your Christmas presents and enjoy browsing. There will be also be demonstrations on how to make a door wreath by Campbell’s flowers and food demonstrations by The Pampered Chef. For couples getting married (whether at Hargate Hall or elsewhere) many of the stall holders will be able to help you out on your big day!
Stalls will be set up in the apartments and also Santa will be hiding out in one of them.
Stall Holders – there is still some space for stall holders so if you are interested please let us know.
As mention in an earlier post about forthcoming events, we are fast approaching the time of the Wormhill Well Dressing week. This runs for a week from Saturday 27th August until Sunday 4th September. Well Dressings go back several centuries, but after a period of the tradition having ceased in Wormhill it was restarted in 1951 as part of the Festival of Britain celebrations.
As this year is the 60th aniversary of the Festival of Britain, we are holding a village party “the Wormhill Stomp”. We will have real ale, 2 bands, DJ, Hog Roast and BBQ. The start time is 7pm and tickets are £7 in advance or £10 on the door. Tickets can be bought from us.
Thank you to those who entered our competition, and to those who took the time to “vote” for their favourite. We had some great entries and we have also had feedback from people with up and coming bookings at Hargate Hall that they have enjoyed the insight into how their weekend might be.
Looking at the results, it has to be said, that there is a very clear winner with over 1000 votes – David and Emma’s Wedding by David Allott. So congratulations to you and we will be in touch to sort out a short break for you.
For anyone who is thinking “I wish I had entered” watch this space, as we are intending to run another competition soon.
