What They Are Saying

“My wife and I held our wedding reception here on September, 2nd and it was amazing! It is spacious enough to have separate areas for standing arrival drinks and sit-down formal meal, it has a fully equipped kitchen, an easy-to-use PA system, good-sized stage and lots of storage space. I wouldn't hesitate a second to recommend East Dean and Friston Village Hall as the perfect venue for any wedding or event."

Silvia Maz - Wedding Reception

“My husband and I held our Wedding reception at East Dean & Friston Village Hall in August. This venue is absolutely perfect for a wedding reception (as well as parties, functions and other events too!) If you are looking for a venue to host your own Wedding reception I highly recommend that you check out this little gem, you will not be disappointed!!”

Hayley Forsyth-Magee - Wedding Reception

“We just had our wedding here. Absolutely lovely venue, can dress it as you please, use all cutlery facilities and accessories including table cloths etc... Tina is lovely and very very good with communication, and being able to organise a visit as and when you please (with some exceptions). Over all we highly rate this venue.”

Oli Toms - Wedding Reception

“I held the sussex Boutique and Bridal boot fair here in October 2015 and the venue was perfect for it. Tina the hall manager was very helpful in the lead up, on the day and after the event in ensuring I had the answers to any questions I asked! We have booked to use hire the hall again in Jan 2016 for the next Sussex Boutique and Bridal Boot Fair.”

Emma Mills - Sussex Boutique and Bridal Boot Fair

“I regularly use this hall for events on behalf of East Sussex WRAS. It is a fantastic venue and the staff are always keen to ensure that we have everything we need ready for each event.
It is easy to find and has parking right outside which is really convenient for our guests.”
