With the Arboretum at Westonbirt close to the heart of so many, we're privileged to offer the Great Oak Hall for family and friends to gather to celebrate the life and memories of loved ones.

The hall can be hired on weekdays for up to four hours. All proceeds go towards the charity’s work to support the Arboretum’s future.

A peaceful setting

We have ample free parking, and guests with restricted mobility can be dropped off close to the venue. There are accessible toilets and changing facilities in the adjacent toilet block.

For your convenience, catering can be provided by the onsite team from Calcot's Westonbirt Arboretum Restaurant.

Hire information

For up to four hours use of the auditorium, we ask for a minimum donation of £300. The whole of this donation goes to the Friends charity, contributing to our support of the daily running of the arboretum and protecting its long term sustainable future for generations to come.

Please note that we offer weekday hire only and that coffins and ashes are not permitted due to site regulations. Our maximum capacity is 80 people.

History of the hall

Inspired by a small cruck barn at Leigh Woods, The Friends met in 1998 to discuss this exciting project
