With a variety of different sized halls and rooms, it is perfect for anything from a small meeting to the largest of receptions. It is used for conferences, weddings and wedding receptions, fairs, recitals, meetings and parties.

The landscaped gardens, lawns and lake, with a fountain, provide a wonderful backdrop for your events and are particularly impressive for photographs.

Airbourne troops ready for D-Day


  • 17 March 2018 1-2:30pm

They landed at the edges of the invasion area on the Normandy coast to secure the western and eastern flanks of the beachheads and protect them from German attacks. Failure would have given Hitler the opportunity to initiate an eleventh-hour attempt to save Germany and launch his new V-weapons against British cities. Success meant the beginning of the end of the Third Reich. A soldier returns to tell of that day, one of the most important in history. Learn the difference between the weapons and equipment of the land and airborne troops and how they worked together to bring victory.
