Reviews of Alton Maltings Centre

  • We had our wedding and reception in the large upstairs auditorium. Few venues would be able to accommodate our 300+ guests whilst offering the character of a listed building. Many of our guests commented on how 'stunning' the venue was, citing the beautiful beams and high ceilings. We were provided with everything we needed, including excellent help from the staff who ensured everything went smoothly. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for somewhere beautiful, spacious and welcoming.

  • We got married at the maltings in the maim room upstairs and it was the perfect venue for us. The beams and size of the room added character and allowed flexibility and scope to decorate as needed. The staff were so helpful, friendly and hard working to ensure we had the best day possible and it has been well thought out with the facilities and disabled access etc. I would definitely consider this venue for other events

  • I used the Alton Maltings Centre to celebrate my 50th birthday. I had a Barn Dance in the large room downstairs. It was such an appropriate venue for a Barn Dance, with plenty of space for the band to have a stage, and room for a drinks bar, as well as room for around 70 people to dance. The kitchen is close by and all the facilities are modern and well cared for. The friendly and helpful staff discussed my needs beforehand and tailored their involvement to suit us. It was a successful evening, I would definitely recommend the Alton Maltings Centre to anyone.

  • Alton Maltings Centre is absolutely fabulous! There are great facilities and the staff just cannot do enough to help. I organise events for a local charity and we had outgrown our previous venue. I used Alton Maltings Centre for a Charity fashion show last year and it was such a success I have it booked again for this years charity ball for over 160 people. The large room upstairs looks amazing when decorated and the the possibilities of what we could do on the night have been so much more sure the incredible staff. I cannot say enough good things about Alton Malting Centre!

  • I had my wedding here and it was exceptionally well organised and facilitated. There was loads of space for dancing in a very secure environment. The acoustics in the hall were great and the staff were willing to put themselves out for our enjoyment - a rare thing these days. We had a really smashing time.

  • Wedding? - Getting married? How many venues offer you complete flexibility and support in building your own bespoke wedding - the answer is very few. Whatever the theme, from the clasic vintage tea party to a 20's ball or the tub thumbing barn dance the Alton Maltings Centre is the perfect canvas for your creativity. Most venues will restrict you to preferred supplier lists, corkage fees, high bar prices and a trees worth of terms and coditions that make your wedding more about the venue rather than about you! At the Alton Maltings Centre you have the freedom to let your imagination run wild, unrestricted in the splendour of Hampshires widest wooden spanned buildings. With the great synergy of old and new and the timeless quality of light oak beams and high ceilings there are no limits to the potential. We really are a hidden treasure in the Market town of Alton. From 20 guests to 500 we don't have any hidden costs, nasty extras or sneaky terms and conditions. We don't demand deposits, are flexible with payments are are on stand by to help wherever we can from over 10 years of experience as a wedding venue. Find out more call 01420 81950 or email [email protected]

  • Did you know that it's possible to book a children's birthday party for as little as £30? With our flexible birthday party option we can provide you with children's chairs and tables, some for the adults too, a kitchen to prepare food and loads of space for games in a secure and serviced venue. Why come? - Limited space? Our rooms have ample space for all the classic children's games from pass the parcel to musical chairs. We are the venue of choice for children's entertainers as the acoustics are great. - Limited parking? Having parents round is great but sometimes finding space for all those cars can be a problem. We have unto 50 free parking spaces and a further 15 spaces adjacent to the building. - Sense of occasion? Have a party at home is fun but going to a different venue adds a real sense of occasion for any little one and you'll all have great memories of the day. - Dealing with the mess? There's nothing worse than seeing the aftermath of lots of little feet treading battenburg cake into the carpet and then having to get the black bags out! Let us take the stress of the mess..... So for just £30 you get so much, but most of all you get some happy memories of your child knowing they are special!
