Due to the latest government announcement and placement of Hampshire in Tier 4, we will postpone our wedding showcase. We are working on an alternate date and will get this scheduled in as soon as we know more about when the tier restrictions are likely to ease. If you wish to be notified of the date change then please contact us so we can add you to the mailing list.

Let's start 2021 how we mean to go on! Your wedding planning starts right here!

Explore Old Thorns and meet our dedicated wedding team at our Wedding Showcase event on Sunday 10th January 2021.
This will be a great opportunity for couples to view our fabulous venue. You'll also get to meet a handful of our best wedding suppliers and there will be the chance to enter some great competitions.


It's fantastic to be back hosting showcase events once again but we do have some additional safety measures in place. Contact details will be collected for attendees and held for 4 weeks as part of the Test & Trace system. Please remember to bring your mask with you as they will be required when walking around our venue. Please also be aware of one way systems and floor markers that will be in place to guide you. We also ask that you respect 2m social distancing at all times, including when speaking with our venue team and suppliers.

Check the tier. And we are not referring to the wedding cake! Depending on the tier we are in at the time of the event, will depend on who you can attend with. If we remain in Tier 2, you may only attend this event with members of your household/support bubble. If we are in Tier 1 then you may attend this event in a group up to 6 people. If we go into Tier 3, the event will be postponed.



We recommend booking to guarantee your entry time and speed up your registration on the day.
