Hire a Historic Site

Our Historic Sites provide atmospheric venues for outdoor events from theatre performances to pop concerts. They have been used for wedding blessings, memorial services, camp-outs and fashion shoots.

Hire a Historic Site

Each site is different, just as each event is different, so you will need to discuss your proposed event in detail with our Events Managerr and possibly also our Historic Sites Curator. Most of the equipment you will need for your event will need to be specially brought in.

Vale Castle

This dominating fortification had its origins as an Iron Age Hill fort, and was most recently a WW2 German strongpoint. Its walls enclose a large open space which can accommodate an event for 200-500 people.

Chateau des Marais (Ivy Castle)

Sometimes forgotten, this fort was once a castle of refuge in the middle ages. During the past few years our historic sites team, helped by gangs of volunteers, have been systematically clearing and improving the site. A small event can be held within its inner walls, but the outer walls can accommodate 500 people.

Other sites

We also care for Fort Pezeries, Grandes Rocques Battery, Fort Hommet and Clarence Battery which offer settings for small outdoor events.
