Berkhamsted Town Hall – Wedding Disco in Hertfordshire

Monday, August 20th, 2012

I recently provided a wedding disco at Berkhamsted Town Hall in Hertfordshire. This is not the first time I have played the venue I seem to remember maybe doing a birthday party there some years ago. Like many wedding venues in Hertfordshire it all comes flooding back to me once I turn up as there can’t be too many popular wedding venues that I haven’t played.

Location-Berkhamsted Town Centre.
Travel Time –  30 minutes travel time.
Setup time – 1hr.
Space for full setup? – Yes,
Smoke Machine – No
Lighting – Could be switched off or dimmed.
Noise / Sound Limiter – No
Layout – Bar in the next room as the disco, Tables around edge of dance floor
Staff – Organised and Helpful.

Other Comments – There is a small lift to use which means the setup needs the full hour. For this particular wedding disco I setup earlier in the day so not to disturb the guests in the evening. I thought the disco sounded quite nice in this venue.

 

Wedding Disco in Northampton, Highgate House, Northamptonshire.

Monday, August 13th, 2012

I recently provided a wedding disco at Highgate House, Northampton, Northamptonshire. This is the first time I have played the venue I am usually at Brampton Grange just down the road which in a way is similar in respects of room size and feel.

Location-2.2 miles from Church Brampton, Northampton, Northamptonshire.
Travel Time –  55 minutes travel time.
Setup time – 1hr.
Space for full setup? – Yes,
Smoke Machine – No
Lighting – Could be switched off or dimmed. Although I think some of the lighting was an external supplier.
Noise / Sound Limiter – No
Layout – Bar in the next room as the disco, Tables around edge of dance floor
Staff – Organised and Helpful.

Other Comments – I was in the Cootes room. Not sure what other rooms may be available. I also met Andy from Party Linen Company www.partylinen.co.uk who had dressed the room. The room looked very nice with uplighters and spots.

Disco at Shendish Manor – Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire

Monday, August 6th, 2012

I recently provided a disco at Shendish Manor in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. This is the first time I have played the venue although I have visited it many times in the past.

Location– Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
Travel Time –  30 minutes travel time.
Setup time – 1hr.
Space for full setup? – Yes,
Smoke Machine – No
Lighting – Could be switched off or dimmed.
Noise / Sound Limiter – No
Layout – Bottle bar in same room as the disco Disco, Tables around edge of dance floor
Staff – Organised and Helpful.

Other Comments – Not sure if there is always a bottle bar in the room but well worth considering if this is an optional extra. You can’t use the garden after 9pm if the music is on due to the neighbours. The room is similar to that of Sopwell house in that it can open up to a large room or have sections closed off.

Mobile Discos in St Albans, Hertfordshire

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

I have been providing mobile discos in St Albans for many years now. It is a very popular place for weddings which has been the majority of the discos I have provided. I would say the venue I have been invited to most to provide discos in St Albans is Sopwell House. The setup here is flexible in terms of size as the main room can be divided into sections. Mainly though I have been invited to play the larger functions and so have used the full room. Nice to setup early here and give the carp in the lake outside a few slices of bread.

Other discos in St Albans have been at the Thistle Hotel on the edge of St Albans. I have provided three wedding discos here in the marquee outside.

I was at St Michaels Manor in St Albans last night which is a lovely looking hotel, that’s what prompted me to write this today. It was a Chamber of Commerce networking event in the gardens of the hotel. However this is not a venue I have played yet personally. Would be nice to add it to the list of discos in St Albans that I have provided.

Not too long ago I played the Town Hall in the Centre of St Albans. This was not a wedding but a school prom which went well in this function room. I would say it was the perfect size for such an event.

A less extravagant but still nice wedding disco in St Albans was at the Quality Hotel. I did setup a level 2 disco as it was a smaller affair.

I also visited Verulam Golf Club and provided a 40th birthday disco a few years ago.

Like many places in Hertfordshire, St Albans is a great place to host your wedding or throw a party.

 

Mobile Disco in Hertfordshire – Shendish Manor, Hemel Hempstead.

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

This weekend I’ll be running a mobile disco in Hertfordshire at Shendish Manor in Hemel Hempstead. I have been to the venue a few times through my day job as a financial adviser but I don’t recall gigging at the venue before. It will be a corporate function which usually means a good party after a long day of conferencing. I’ll be sure to write a review after the event as I usually do for venue I haven’t played before. This month I’ll also be gigging a couple of times in Northamptonshire and providing a wedding disco in Berkhamstead in Hertfordshire.
