GrandWay Hall

Location: The GrandWay Event Centre

  • 224 guests*
  • Dividable room
  • Private Outdoor Patio

Built in 2020, the 3,800 square foot hall is one of the largest event spaces in Centre Wellington, accommodating up to 224 guests*. If this is more than you need, we can divide the room into a split of 80 and 64 people – or just use the whole room and make the dance floor larger!

Large windows look out onto the 53-acre property and a beautiful partially-covered patio space. A neutral colour palette embraces a rustic but elegant style, allowing you to put your personal touch on the space.

The GrandWay Hall can be used in conjunction with any of the event spaces, grounds, infield, or patio to make your occasion a ‘Grand’ one!
