The Rural Life Centre for hire.

The Rural Life Centre collection is housed in a mixture of purpose-built barns and reconstructed historic buildings set in more than ten acres of delightful garden and woodland.

The site makes an ideal venue for a wide variety of different events and the facilities are available for hire so long as the use is compatible with the broad ethos of the museum’s charitable objects.

Such events have included vehicle rallies, charity fairs, craft markets and car boot sales through to wedding blessings using the restored Eashing Chapel.

Parties ranging in size from 30 to 120 can be catered for using either the Lindford Hall or the Frensham Building and on site caterers will be only too pleased to quote for your requirements.

The restored buildings make an ideal backdrop and setting for film, television and theatrical work and items from the reserve collection may be available for use as ‘props’ both on and off site so long as adequate insurance cover is arranged.
