A Roaring 20s Summer Ball
2024 is our 20th anniversary year as a wedding venue. Join us to mark this special milestone on the 29th June 2024 for a Roaring 20s Ball in celebration of 20 years.
Drinks and canapés on arrival will be followed by a delicious 3 course meal served by the wonderful team from A2Zest. The evening will unfold with silent and live charity auctions, cash/card bar serving signature cocktails and a range of other drinks, as well as music provided by Electroswing DJ Jamie Berry. Dinner and dancing will be in a marquee on the Main Lawn, with the surrounding gardens open for a wander in the (fingers crossed!) evening sunshine.
All proceeds from sponsorship, ticket sales, donations and auction prizes on the night will go to St. Michael’s Hospice in its 40th anniversary year.

We are enormously grateful to the following companies who have supercharged our fundraising drive with generous donations each:
The Hommedinger and our fundraising aims would not be possible without the incredible support of some brilliant Herefordshire businesses, many of whom have supported us in the weddings we have hosted over the last 20 years. Particular thanks go to:
Snow White Laundries, our wedding linen supplier, for the very generous donation of the table cloths.
St. Michael’s Hospice
The central aim of the Ball will be to raise as much money as possible for St. Michael’s Hospice, who will be celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2024.
1 in 2 people in the UK will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime, and over 75% of the £10m+ required to run the Hospice annually needs to be found through private donations, so ongoing support of this vital Herefordshire institution is critical. The Hospice team works tirelessly, caring for over 2,000 in and outpatients and their families every year across 30 different Herefordshire postcodes with 17 services of support.
Like so many families in Herefordshire, our connection with the Hospice is a personal one. John died in July 2023 after a long battle with cancer, and in his last weeks was cared for brilliantly by the wonderful team at St. Michael’s Hospice, both in Bartestree and at Homme. We are incredibly grateful to the team for all they did for him, and are dedicating all our fundraising efforts this year to their cause in his memory.

The parkland drive will bring drivers down the parking areas closer to the house, with marshalls coordinating parking at the start of the event.
The booking process will offer the opportunity to indicate whether priority parking close to the house is essential for anyone in your party. Those needing priority parking will be allocated spaces as close as possible to the house.
