The Grand Hall Bedford Testimonials Banner

Read what our lovely clients and suppliers have to say about us

“The Grand Hall was the beautiful venue we chose to host ‘An Evening of Wishes’. When I first stepped through the doors of the hall I fell in love with the stunning painted ceiling. When our guests walked through the doors they were completely blown away by this hidden gem of a venue, with a lot of people just commenting ‘wow’! The venue perfectly suited the relaxed glam decor and created such a buzzing atmosphere. I cannot thank all staff from The Grand Hall enough, they went out of their way to make the organising and running of the event as smooth as possible. This is truly a great find of a venue!”
– Gemma Lander (owner of The White Emporium) and charity event organiser

“We were privileged to be the first couple to have our wedding ceremony in this beautiful venue. The staff were very friendly & Dani in particular did her very best to make the day run smoothly. From start to finish was a pleasant, stress free experience. We would highly recommend this venue for any occasion.”
– Toni Thandi (Wedding on Saturday 4 February 2017)

“Thank you so much for ensuring everything ran smoothly on Saturday for Toni and Rav. What a fantastic hall it is and very appropriate for such a function especially with the size of the families we had… had some very nice feedback from the guests! I look forward to attending another ceremony there again.”

“Best wedding venue in Bedford – I just want to say that Leanne was amazing. Continuously keeping in touch with us and going out of her way to assist with our plans so everything went smoothly, which meant her staying late on a few occasions. Massive thank you to Leanne.”

– Emma & Rich (Wedding on Saturday 28 October 2017)

“The evening was a great success in that we received very positive feedback that people enjoyed themselves and we raised in excess of £2500 for our charities. The Grand Hall is a splendid venue which helped to create the right ambience for the event. Many thanks to you for all your patience and help with the booking and set up arrangements.”
– Tony Wildman, Event Organiser (Charity Night on Friday 17 November 2017)

“Amazing venue, absolutely stunning Hall and lots of meaning for my mother the birthday girl as she taught here when it was BHS for such a long time. The venue staff went above and beyond to ensure it went well – especially the caretaker Alec who was with us all night and helped so much with set up and tidying. Thank you!”
– Maddy Gamble, Daughter (Mother’s birthday party on Saturday 21 April 2018)

“I just wanted to say many thanks for all your support and time with preparations for my 40th birthday party at The Grand Hall. The event was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Many local friends did not realise that this venue existed and were impressed so hopefully they will spread the word! Please also pass on my thanks to Alec who was really helpful with queries on the day as well as Maria.”
