FAQs

At Saxon Hall, we have done our best to create a web site that anticipates and satisfies our customers needs. With that goal in mind, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions. If you do not find an answer to your question here, contact us.

Do You Have Accommodation?

We do not have accommodation on site, however there are hotels nearby, for example there is a Holiday Inn and a Premier Inn within close proximity.

How Do I Confirm My Booking?

Bookings are only confirmed with written confirmation (will be either by post or email) and the receipt of a deposit (deposits are non-refundable and deducted from the final invoice).

When Do I Have To Pay For My Function?

All functions have to be paid in full 2 weeks before the function date. Conferences are slightly different in that credit terms will need to be agreed.

Can I Bring My Own Food And Drink?

Saxon Hall provides all catering and beverages. Therefore no food and drink can be brought in for a function or conference.

A celebration cake may be brought in (please note Saxon Hall do not provide cake stands or cake knives).

Do You Have A Resident DJ Or Can I Provide My Own?

We don’t have a resident DJ but we have used, and recommend, Eternity Events. However you can bring your own DJ as long as they carry full public liability insurance and P.A.T. tested equipment (certificate to be inspected prior to function). Eternity Events can be contacted on 01268 784020/07900 627243 or online @ www.eternityeventsessex.co.uk..

If live music is more your style Marshall King has performed at our venue many times, and is always very popular. He can be reached on www.kingentertainment.co.uk/
