Ok, so you’ve got a big birthday coming up, and most likely, if you’re reading this, there’s a 0 at the end. You’re feeling nervous not only because you are leaving the comfort of your decade for the past ten years but you want a truly fantastic party…or maybe you have been put in charge of the big corporate ‘do’ or annual party for the big client…they’ll talk about wanting something different, something unique, something that everyone will like. It’s a tough brief, especially when they show you the budget.

We think we have the answer, whether it’s a big birthday or a big corporate do how about your very own mini festival. It’s been statistically proven that a festival is the nation’s favourite thing to do so if you can’t take everyone to Glastonbury, why not create your own. You can even name the festival yourself. Now that is unique. Job done.

Band at Harewood Forest Festival

Harewood Forest Events View from AboveBeing in the middle of a forest we have the space to bespoke your festival party to the size you want, be it for 120, 500 or even more. A forest with ancient oak trees, scampering deer, twittering owls, a hare or two and if you are really, really lucky…a unicorn (who often doesn’t turn up).

We have a large reception area, which is no ordinary building, some would say it is not really a building at all but a magic place where outside is inside and inside is outside. A work of art even, built from out of the very forest itself, from silver birch, wisteria, telegraph poles, a tepee on stilts, sofas, chandeliers, bamboo, palm trees, fire pits and a pergola of lanterns and candles.

And then when it gets dark, the magic really starts….we light the forest up like a Christmas tree.

We have a large stage for live bands and DJ’s and also enough space for people to camp should they wish to get that full festival feeling. Bands, festival food, fairground rides, you name we can do it.

Harewood Forest Events FoodOk enough. So how much does it cost?

Well most venues tie you into their bar and catering. Not us. We don’t mind if you want to find your own caterers or hire a van down to Majestic and stock the bar yourself. Of course, we can do it all for you but the choice is yours if you want to save some money.

You are not tied to us in any way other than the hire of the venue and the cost of Christian who dresses the forest up and provides the sound for your entertainment.

If you want to spend £12k on your party or £100k it’s up to you. The beauty of this place is you can keep it cheap or do the Full Monty. If you want fairground attractions, dodgems, ferris wheels, huge BBQs, fire breathers, silent discos and a fully loaded marquee then we have the space.

Ball park figures for 120 people for entry level festival party.

Hire of venue. £6,000

Lighting and sound
Christian, our festival man will then do his magic of lighting the forest,

the limit but for a brilliant burger and brownies for festival type food
