Wedding Receptions

Gladstone Village Hall is the perfect location for a wedding reception. The Hall is located in the picturesque village of Burton on the Wirral, 7 miles north-west of Chester.

Gladstone Village Hall is situated in the centre of the village overlooking woods with the village playing field to the rear and open countryside beyond. There is ample free car parking on site with good transport links to the M56 within easy reach and Hooton railway station only 4 miles away.

Childrens Play Area

The Parish Church of St Nicholas Church is only a few minutes walk away:

The Hall has recently been redecorated and can accommodate up to:

  • 48 to 60 persons comfortably for a formal wedding reception (dependent upon table plan)
  • 110 persons for dancing/disco type of event
  • 120 persons seated conference style
  • 150 persons for exhibitions/fairs

Also there is a generous sized stage for entertainment.

The fully modernised kitchen is available for private use or for professional caterers with a dishwasher, fridge, microwave, fridge, range cooker and warming cupboard. Our wedding package includes the hire of the whole building as well as tables and chairs. However, some couples may wish to hire in circular tables that would have to be hired in by the Hirer.  A new sound system is also available for use if required. High chairs are not provided.

The Hall will be cleaned in time for you to set up for your event. Our cleaner will visit during the day of your reception to ensure the cloakroom facilities are well maintained throughout. The Hall will be cleared and cleaned for you after the event has finished. However, you or your caterer will be expected to remove all food, glasses, cutlery and crockery at the end of the day. All bunting, decorations and balloons must be removed by you at the end of the day or possibly early the next morning.

Please Note:

You are welcome to decorate the Hall but nothing must be attached to the fabric of the building e.g. walls and woodwork. Use of blu-tac or white tac and sellotape is prohibited. Fixing hooks are in place for the attachment of bunting/banners etc.

Use of lighted candles is discouraged due to the fire hazard.

Sky or Chinese Lanterns are prohibited from being released from the Gladstone Village Hall area and land due to the proximity of farm buildings, thatched cottages and the flight path of aeroplanes taking off and landing at Liverpool Airport.

Entertainment decibel levels must not exceed Environmental Health Protection Act 1990 due to the proximity of houses as defined in Section 79(g) as ‘noise emitted from premises so as to be prejudicial to health or a nuisance’). Please request your guests leave your event quietly in respect of villagers living close by.
