We have a range of fantastic venues to offer you, from our Music School to the Bacon Theatre and from conference rooms and classrooms to boarding houses and The Edwards Dining Room. In addition, there are first class sporting facilities available to hire, ranging from an indoor swimming pool to the tennis courts and from our sports hall to our astro turfs.

We can tailor and personalise your requirements to create a package that is suitable for your event. We also have an in-house catering team so that you can wine and dine with us too!

In light of recent circumstances, we have released the below statement to all external hirers; Commercial Lets, Sports Lets and Bacon Theatre customers, across the Dean Close Services Ltd board. This statement was issued on Tuesday 17th March 2020:

Dear Hirer,

In response to the Prime Minister’s statement, advising people to avoid unnecessary social contact, the Dean Close Foundation has decided to operate a ‘core business only’ policy, which means public facing events and non-essential gatherings of people, including the activity of Commercial Lets, will be cancelled until further notice.

Charges will not be made for cancelled hire dates. If you have already paid for the term, your account will be credited against future hire charges.  

The priority of the Dean Close Foundation has to be the health and welfare of its visitors, staff and wider community and we thank you for your understanding. We will keep you informed in the coming weeks.

We also thank you for your support in the past and we look forward to seeing you again in the hopefully not-too-distant future.

Marie Carter,

Business Development Manager
