Facilities and Capacity

The Great Thatched Barn at Falmer Court is drenched in romance and retro charm. The barn features cathedral ceilings, timber cross beams, and a thatch roof that will transport you back in time. It can seat as many as 130 guests on the venue's stylish, lime-washed Chiavari chairs. You can host your ceremony inside the barn, or, if you prefer a religious ceremony, in the village Anglican church. Just a stone's throw away, St Laurence, and the local vicar, will welcome you to this sanctuary to tie the knot. You can also exchange your vows outside, surrounded by the spectacular greenery of the South Downs. Wedding breakfasts can be held on the grounds under a stretch tent, which will provide shelter during hot summer days and cool autumn nights.

Along with Chiavari chairs, The Great Thatched Barn at Falmer Court will supply patio furniture for your celebration. For catering, they work exclusively with Circa Events, a company that provides gourmet dishes and exquisite planning services. These caterers maximise sustainability and strive to make a positive impact on the planet.
