The Ark is a truly unique venue. Based in the scenic location of Midsummer Meadow, this venue definitely has the wow factor. At 23m long and 6m wide with 2 decks, this boat is big enough for most occasions. Whether it’s a wedding receptions, birthdays, anniversaries, christenings, conferences, corporate events and funeral wakes, we are able to accommodate for your affair.
The boat can accommodate up to 45 guests for a sit down meal or up to 70 for a more informal get together in the winter and 120 in the summer*. The room layout can also be adjusted to suit celebrations with lower numbers of guests.
We have a licensed bar and can host live music and discos, which we can organise on your behalf if required.
We offer a full catering service starting from £8.50 per person. Whether it’s a cold buffet or full three course dinner you are after, we can provide what you’re looking for. You may also choose to bring your own food if this is something you would prefer.
Your event will be organised and managed by our event planner, who will be able to provide advice and guidance throughout the planning process.
So for events from 10 – 120 people, please get in touch.

*For capacity over 70, hirer will need to hire a marquee to cover the top deck.
