We now offer the chance to hire the historic and beautiful grounds of the Forge Mill Needle Museum and Bordesley Abbey Visitor Centre for wedding receptions, parties and fundraising events.
We have an attractive outdoor space, with the backdrop of a 16th century barn, Victorian Needle Mill and picturesque Mill Pond.
Please contact us for hire charges or for any further information.
As part of the complex we have a light and airy Function Room, which is the new wing of a 16th century barn. The room can be set out in a variety of ways and is ideal for:
- Group meetings
The room can usually be hired both during, and outside of, normal museum opening hours.
Covered Cloistered Courtyard
Our covered Cloistered Courtyard area has café style chairs and tables and is adjacent to our popular children’s adventure play area. This is a lovely area and suitable for events like:
- Wedding Receptions
The Courtyard can be hired both during (note that the adjacent Play Area will be open to the general public at this time) and outside of normal opening hours, such as for evening functions. Any clearing away can be done the following day between 9.30 and 10.30am. We reserve the right to charge an hourly rate until the site is cleared to our satisfaction.
