Another Disco Booking For Tewin Bury Farm

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

I do enjoy playing at Tewin Bury Farm and as my disco bookings fill up for next summer and the height of the wedding season it looks like I’ll be working there quite a bit more. I have taken another deposit today to play in the Tythe Barn at Tewin Bury which is a great wedding venue.

Fawsley Hall in Northamptonshire

Monday, October 26th, 2009

In August this year I provided disco services for a wedding at Fawsley Hall in Northamptonshire. This is a really pleasent facility for weddings. disco The setup was quite straight forward with access that didn’t affect the guests as it was the opposite end to the bar and where they would vacate the room during turn around. I have put together a review of the facilities at Fawsley Hall in Northants and the services I can provide for this sophisticated wedding venue.

Location– Fawsley, Northamptonshire
Travel Time –  60 minutes travel time.
Setup time – 1hr.
Space for full setup? – Yes enough room for Disco service level 3
Smoke Machine – wasn’t requested for this disco so unsure.
Bubble Machine – Yes
Hotel Lighting – Can be controlled although it was on a light setting
Room turn around time from dinner to Disco –Usually 45 minutes to an hour which is the time I can setup.
Noise / Sound Limiter – No
Layout – Bar in adjacent room to Disco, Tables around edge of dance floor with disco at one end.
Staff – Happy, Helpful and professional. The wedding planner is well organised.

The disco does not need to be setup early due to the turn around time in the main hall. Overall I enjoyed playing this wedding venue and would like to do so again. One of the more sophisticated venues in the area.

Hanbury Manor in Ware, Hertfordshire

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

In December I will be again playing Hanbury Manor in Ware, Hertfordshire . This is an excellent facility for weddings. It is a 5 star luxury Marriott hotel. Over recent years I have played this venue many times providing disco services in Poles Hall and the Garden Suite. I have put together a review from my perspective of the facilities at Hanbury Manor in Ware and the services I can provide for this special wedding venue.

Tewin Bury Farm, Wedding Venue in Hertfordshire

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Today I have quoted for disco hire at Tewin Bury Farm in Hertfordshire . Over the years I have played this venue many times in the various barns. I have put together a review from my perspective of the facilities at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel and the services I can provide for this ideal wedding venue.

The Tythe Barn - Tewin Bury Farm Barns

Travel Time –  40 minutes travel time.
Setup time – 1hr.
Space for full setup? – Yes enough room for Disco service level 3
Smoke Machine – Yes
Bubble Machine – Yes
Hotel Lighting – On dimmer switches can be controlled
Room turn around time from dinner to Disco –Usually 45 minutes to an hour which is the time I can setup.

Staff – Happy, Helpful and professional.

The party is always a success at this venue, the disco does not need to be setup early due to the turn around time. The position of the disco is usually at the end of a barn or room which works best in my opinion.

The venue has nice lawned gardens immediately outside the main function rooms with a small river/stream.

Sopwell House, St Albans, Hertfordshire.

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Not long ago I played Sopwell House in Hertfordshire . This is not the first time I have played the venue. I have put together a review from my perspective of the facilities at Sopwell House and the services I can provide for this wedding venue.

Disco Setup at Sopwell House in St Albans

Disco Setup at Sopwell House in St Albans

Location– St Albans, Hertfordshire
Travel Time –  25 minutes travel time.
Setup time – 1hr.
Space for full setup? – Yes enough room for Disco service level 3
Smoke Machine – No, not permitted due to fire alarms
Bubble Machine – Yes
Hotel Lighting – On dimmer switches can be controlled
Room turn around time from dinner to Disco – I was able to setup behind closed doors which were opened after the dinner.
Noise / Sound Limiter – No
Layout – Bar in adjacent room as Disco, Tables around edge of dance floor,
Staff – Happy and Helpful.

The party went well at this venue, the disco does not need to be setup early if behind closed doors as this party was. Otherwise I would suggest the early setup option. This would add an extra charge to the guideline prices.  The main rooms at this venue can be sectioned. I have done party’s in smaller sections which has worked for less people.

The venue has nice gardens immediately outside the main function rooms.

The Sculpture Gallery in Woburn, Bedfordshire

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

I recently provided disco services for a wedding at The Sculture Gallery in Woburn, Bedfordshire. I have put together a review from my DJ perspective of the facilities and the disco services I can provide for this wedding venue.

Location– Woburn in Bedfordshire, nice gardens!

Travel Time –  30 minutes travel time.
Setup time – 1hr 30 minutes. Quite a distance between loading and the dance floor
Setup – Must be earlier in the day, dictated by the venue organisers
Space for full setup? – Yes enough room for Disco service level 3
Smoke Machine – Yes allowed
Bubble Machine – Yes
Venue Lighting – On dimmer switches can be controlled
Room turn around time from dinner to Disco – Not an issue due to early setup requirements and no tables positioned on the dance floor.
Noise / Sound Limiter – No
Layout – Bar in a different room to the disco, Tables around edge of dance floor. The disco in in the middle of the room. Makes it a little awkward for people crossing the dance floor. Leaves the tables out of the direct sound of the disco.
Staff – Helpfull.

I have played this venue many times, as a guide the cost would be £400 – £500 depending on the evening playing time.
