The Perfect Wedding Reception Venue

BAWA can offer a variety of rooms in which to host your wedding reception - as well as your evening celebration afterwards!

You can select a room based on the seating and atmosphere you require. From the superb Ballroom for larger weddings, to the Pavilion Lounge with its views out over fields and parkland through to the Concorde Room with its flexible seating - the choice is yours.

Full venue hire, conferencing & Events

At BAWA we understand the needs of business and organisational conferencing, and our experience helps to ensure a smooth process of organisation as well as a very successful conference.

All the facilities are wheelchairs accessible, with wide doorways and a lift to the first floor. There are two receptions, both staffed continuously throughout the day, and security staff and systems that operate 24 hours a day.
