Wedding Venue Hire

The beautiful and historic Violet Needham Chapel, built in the mid-19th century and now converted into part of Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, is available to book for civil ceremonies for up to 100 guests.

Following the ceremony photographs can be taken outside the picturesque Grade II listed Clifton Lodge and guests can enjoy a drinks reception of up to 1 hour in the chapel and the chapel garden.

Due to current government restrictions and uncertainty at this time, we are not taking bookings for weddings until further notice.
