Reception

The reception will follow the musical entertainment, in the same venue. We are pleased to offer a buffet meal, including sandwiches, rolls, wraps, sushi, sweet tartlets, cheeses, and fruit.

We cannot cater specifically for allergies, however there will be a range of clearly-labelled vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options in addition to meat and fish. The buffet will not contain nuts as an ingredient, but some ingredients may contain traces of nuts, or may originate in kitchens that handle nuts.

The buffet will be accompanied by red and white wines and a range of soft drinks.

The Reception will feature a musical interlude at around 21.30.

After booking your ticket(s) for the reception, you will be able to fill in a simple form to let us know of any dietary requirements, to help us provide the right quantities, and the names of any guests.
