What our guests say: Chesterfield reception venue

The opinions of our guests and visitors are very important.  They often leave Ashover Parish Hall making positive comments and some leave lovely messages on our Facebook page.

A recent happy customer, who enjoyed a beautiful winter wedding, left us this message:


Beth and Quin Golding’s wedding comments

It’s lovely to hear such kind words and we are delighted that we could help you enjoy your big day so much.

Becky and James married in September and sent us this cute thank you card:

John, our caretaker, helped Becky and James decorate the room with bunting, fairy lights, paper lanterns and great big branches! It looked great and their ideas have inspired many of this year’s couples to do similar.

Thanks for your comments Gemma.  Your wedding day was beautiful and we’re so glad we could share it with you.  Wishing you lots of luck for the future.

Another Facebook post, from a more unusual use of our Chesterfield function venue.  Skint International Music and Dance weekend is held here in November.  Last year’s event was certainly a success with this Facebook user.

You can read more about this inspiring folk festival on this blog.  The pictures of Ashover Parish hall look fantastic and really show how we can be transformed for different events.

Thinking about this annual event makes me look forward to autumn: music, Halloween and hot dogs.  What’s not to love?

UPDATE – The 2014 Skint Festival will be held from the 31st Oct to 3rd Nov. Make sure you keep an eye on their Facebook page from August (tickets are sold in batches) for details.

    We held our wedding reception at Ashover Parish Hall in August 2012. We had the most amazing evening in an idyllic setting. Organising the reception was easy; Alex (manageress) was brilliant at meeting our requirements and keeping good communication links as well as being lovely and very efficient! We had a rock n roll band, a summer barbeque followed by an ice cream van and a bouncy castle, all with a cricket match in the background. We couldn’t have asked for more and it was very good value for money too. The bar staff were great and nothing too much trouble. Ashover really was the perfect place for us and our guests ( who all commented positively on the Hall). I would recommend Ashover to anyone.

  • Thanks for your comments Lucy. I remember your wedding well! It was a fab day and I’m so glad you enjoyed it. x

    Thank you for all your help. We had a wonderful time and everyone had fun. P.S thanks for arranging the drapes in the foyer, it looked brilliant. Thank again, the Rylance family.
