A  Special and Memorable Venue for your Wedding Reception


Choose Oaklands Pavilion for your wedding reception in Chichester for an especially memorable day. 

The parkland surroundings of Oaklands Pavilion make it an ideal location for your Wedding reception or party. Located just outside the centre of the City, it’s accessible and convenient for many Churches; it’s only a short distance from the registry office in Orchard Street. 

In the Main Hall there is plenty of room to accommodate a traditional sit down Wedding Breakfast or a more informal buffet style celebration in the style you prefer. This can continue on into the evening with a band, or disco using the Snug Bar as a quieter room where guests can converse. 

We will work with you to create a programme to suit your specific needs with a layout tailored to make your guests comfortable. We’ll help you to choose how decorate the rooms to your theme, personalising the hall with your choice of swagging, chair covers and table decorations either yourself or using our contractors. 

Our caterers use the freshest of local ingredients, skillfully prepared to produce meals that have earned them an enviable reputation. There are a wide range of affordable standard packages available, alternatively we can produce a menu to suit your specific needs. 

With attractive room rates, reasonable bar prices and competitive catering costs, an impressive, city centre reception is in reach of relatively modest budgets. For Example: 

A Wedding Reception using the Main Hall and the upstairs bar for 60 people including 

  • Canapés on arrival 
  • Three course wedding breakfast 
  • Sparkling wine on arrival and for toasts 
  • Serving staff, set up and clearing 
  • Staffed bar 


The main hall accommodates up to 200 people making it ideal as a public meeting room, conference or event venue in Chichester city centre. 

There is  a projection screen as well as a sound system that’s available for all users within the hire charge so you don’t have to arrange it yourself; we can help organise any AV equipment too if you do not have your own. 

With the kitchen adjacent to the Hall catering can be easily provided, ranging from coffee,tea & biscuits to a comprehensive lunch. 

With free car parking on site  it’s a very accessible and popular location. As the largest hall in the City the ability to accommodate up to 200 people makes it a popular choice for these meetings and the ability to adopt different layouts makes it very flexible. Whether it’s an AGM, a public meeting or a conference, just give us a call and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
