Licensed Events

The Manor House has a full premises licence which means we are licenced for the sale of alcohol and for musical entertainment.

We discuss with our clients their requirements for a bar and any special requests they have and then we set up a bar in a location that is best for the event.  Special requests can be for cocktails, a champagne or prosecco bar or cask and real ales.

The acoustics in The Manor House are excellent for acoustic live performances and generate a unique atmosphere.  The reception hall and staircase space produce a special sound particularly for vocal harmony and a solo piano player as a background to an event gives a special ambiance to the period spaces in the building.  The acoustics and the intimacy of the Old Court make for a great atmosphere for live acoustic performance, disco or recorded music.

We have the equipment to playback recorded music from CD, MP3, I-Pod and even vinyl  and we have the equipment to stage live events including a 16 channel mixing desk and  but if you wish to bring your own equipment for playback or live music let us know.

Catering for events can be sourced from a range of local suppliers and Manor House event partners to meet a full range of offers including party nibbles, speciality cheeses, a traditional buffet or a full range of meals.

"“The Manor House is an excellent base for a business like mine. As well as being a beautiful building, the actual facilities offer everything that I need to be able to run a 21st Century PR consultancy. Along with the on-site provision of essentials like superfast fibre optic broadband and access to good storage and meeting room capacity, the Manor House is within very short walking distance of amenities in Sedgefield such as cafes and a post office. Meanwhile, the main arterial roads in the North East are only minutes away, which is handy not only for me, but also for any visitors who I meet here.”"

"Just want to say a huge thank you for everyone’s help at the Manor House. The jewelry event was a great success and everyone commented on how beautiful the room and building was. Most of the attendees were local and said they haven’t even known about the building. I will defiantly be interested in having further events in the future."

"I’d like to say on behalf of all at SDT thank you for the use of the Old Court Room for our open evening this year.
We had a very successful meeting with much lively discussions afterwards. I am quite sure the surroundings contributed much to the evening; when people are comfortable they perhaps are more inclined to join in the talk and to stay until a natural conclusion. As well as a big thank you can you please specifically thank Steph who was very helpful and unruffled by our questions and requests. Without her we wouldn’t have got started promptly, and perhaps not at all! "
Rodger Clubley - Sedgefield Development Trust Open Evening held on 23rd November 2015
"We had a brilliant time at the book launch of The Magic Mobile in September. Couldn’t have wished for a better venue. Everybody was very impressed with the Manor House and we were very grateful for the help and support we received from your staff. The catering equipment provided was just right – glasses, cups, cloths etc – and the large tables at either end of the Court Room were perfect for the buffet and the book display. Washing up is a bit difficult, as both the sink and dishwasher downstairs are small; carrying dishes up all those stairs is not easy either!
Access via the lovely garden and inviting entrance area certainly add to the experience, while the rear door entrance and car parking proved very useful to visitors from beyond Sedgefield. I will certainly recommend the Manor House to other people and would love to be able to use your excellent facilities again. Good luck with future events."
