Zion was the perfect place for our Ceilidh party! Several of our friends commented on how beautiful and friendly the venue was, and the band said it was a brilliant place to play and couldn’t believe they hadn’t been there before. We had a brilliant time dancing and there was space for catering too. Alex was fantastic at the bar and helping us set up. Decorations were easy as the hall already has pretty sets of lights set up and we were able to decorate the stage backdrop. We also made good use of the outdoor space which has picnic tables and a ‘boat’ gazebo for kids to play in. It was enclosed so brilliant for toddlers running around. Thank you so much to Rosa for helping us to organise our event.
Deborah – Afternoon Hire for Family Celebration – August 2023

The venue was lovely and Rosa was so helpful, making us coffee whenever we asked, sorting out the air conditioning etc. Our overseas visitors thought the building was amazing. We would definitely come back.
Karen – Yoga Teacher Day – June 2023

A lovely venue which was perfect for our event, which was a memorial for my father.
Hazel – Memorial – June 2023

“It was totally excellent. Everything and more that we could have wished for. The space, the vibe, the music….the whole shebang…helped us move towards the end of SBES with joy! Thank you”

Evening Hire for Networking Event – February 2023

We had a surprise engagement party at The Zion and it couldn’t have gone better! We walked in and they had set up everything as we’d asked for, and then helped us put up our decorations. Alex and Jess were friendly, kind, and super helpful – nothing was too much trouble. In truth, everything was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for more! Our guests had a fab time too. Thank you!

Everyone had a great time, so thank you very much for making it happen! Will definitely be in touch when I’m planning my next event,
