Better Exterior than Interior
Venue Service

By Eden Event, on 17 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018

The Timings at this venue is extremely stringent!! Unlike other venues where you get a 7am or 8am access you cannot get access into this venue until 12 noon and it fits about 600 they expect you to also clear up that massive space in 30 minutes ??, like most crappy venues they are just after getting your deposit as those access times are impossible!! Besides who wants to get married in a theatre hall..Don’t be fooled by the water fountain outside the walls inside is dark brown oak finish, curtains are red and black, caretakers are constantly in the hall breathing down your neck the one on shift on Saturday dressers like a guest and he was in the hall 90% of the time finding joy in being very difficult overall a bad experience for any wedding in my professional opinion as a wedding planner

Dear Eden Events, Thank you for your review and taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Your client initially enquired with us back in February, whereby we would have discussed the various options regarding the hire times. There are several packages available and it is down to the client to decide on what works best for their special day. Walthamstow Assembly Hall is a stunning Grade II listed building, built during World War II and has hosted many concerts and social events during the years. It might not be to your taste, but given that your client booked the hall, we can only assume that the couple you were the planner for, did like the hall. If you wish to discuss your review in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact me directly on 0208 496 4283. For more information about Walthamstow Assembly Hall and all of our other venues, please visit; www.forestvenues.london Best wishes,

Beautiful venue!

Just wanted to say thanks for this past weekend. Thanks for your support leading up to the day and good to meet you in person. We and the guys had a great night! Think the staff on the night quite enjoyed the entertainment as well :) Thanks for having us in your lovely venue.

I wanted to take a little moment and send this note in to just congratulate your team and specifically Sultan for all your efforts in assisting me with this booking. The hall was booked for my Waleema on the evening of the 7th and everything went down without a hitch. Sultan was very accommodating and super professional with all my requests. I felt all my and my families needs were met sufficiently and he really went above and beyond. Thank you once again for everything, I really couldn’t have asked for more.

Remarkable Customer Service and Beautiful Venue!

We just wanted to thank you all for your amazing help in making our wedding day special back in April 21. Ali, I still owe you a coffee, and I'm a man of my word, watch this space. Diana, for the endless chain emails about clarifying drink options for the party. To the site manager who managed to back us up when we visited the hall with our demanding parents (I forgot his name but he was superb!), to former colleagues like Demi and new ones too. You made the day beautiful for us, and it was like a movie. The venue was perfect, and we're sure your service and venue helped raise its profile. Here's the more bookings. Now, I'm thinking, maybe we'll have our kids (or one of them at least) have their wedding there, since I now have that power (whenever kids do come that is).

RIP OFF, you will not get your deposit back

I agree the above is an honest review in my opinion and it has been a venue flagged up in the wedding association recently as most event stylists within the group have had the same problems and it is a most common opinion from your google reviews as well It is fair to let others know what they are going into as a wedding is usually meant to leave a beautiful experience not fear or panic. Your access don’t work for weddings and you ask for £250 an hour of the couple who ever ask for flexibility with access, your care takers breathe down the neck of people getting married and kept taking pictures with threats the venue was swept twice but no it was a set for fail on satisfaction. There are just so many other venues that don’t give such experience and have a Full day Hire on their money’s worth with cleaners even on dry hire and of course no power trip care takers looking for faults. I believe it was a very bad experience for us too
