The cost to hold a wedding reception or ceremony and reception at Battle Abbey School ranges from £3,000 (midweek dates) to £5,000 (Saturdays) and will include exclusive use of the schools premises; Abbot’s Hall, Duke’s Library, Refectory and surrounding outdoor space. Beyond this pricing for drinks and food will depend entirely on your choices. If there’s something you particularly want just ask, we will work with you until we have a price and offering your happy with. Theres no such thing as an off-the-peg wedding at Battle Abbey. We can even stock the bar to your tastes!
As all weddings are bespoke we have great flexibility in our price and offering. On average a full Saturday wedding might see prices in the range of £100 a head to include; canapes on arrival, three course sit down meal, evening buffet and a late licence to 1am. A Thursday would be much more cost effective at £2,000 cheaper and on this basis is well worth considering if it’s an option for you. There are also other ways to bring the price down considerably by choosing your options carefully, particularly in the Summer months where a hog roast and barbeque (rather than a three course sit down meal) might save you anything up to a further £1,800 depending on numbers.
Due to the size of the venue we have a minimum day attendance of 75.
Unfortunately we do not accept external caterers at the Abbey.
