Whatever wedding vibe you’re after, from low-key and elegant to upbeat and vibrant, there are plenty of reception activities you can offer that will inject life and soul into your afternoon and evening.

And with our incredible grounds that look out across the Cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire countryside, you’ll find the perfect place for whatever kind of fun you want your guests to enjoy!

Here are a few of our favourites, that we think can liven up any wedding, regardless of your theme.

They’re just for a little inspiration; remember that whatever you’d like, all you have to do is speak to us and we’ll do everything we can to make it happen!


For a unique talking point and something a little different, why not hire a wedding magician to blow your guests away?

Perfect for all ages, and blending magic with entertainment, this is fool proof choice of entertainment that goes down well during reception drinks and canapés or before an evening of dancing.


Give your guests something personal and fun to remember you by, with an instant photobooth. With fantastic props and freedom to pose how you wish, this is the perfect place for your friends and family to let loose and have fun.

It’s one of our favourite additions to the wedding evening, and you can even hire one that matches with your theme!


Offering the perfect opportunity for memorable photos, and giving your guests the chance to laugh the night away, carousels are a traditional and stunning addition to your wedding party.

They really do have the wow factor, and we find they’re loved by guests of all ages – not just the little ones!


Nothing sets the mood for the rest of the day like your choice of music. We work with a diverse group of musicians on a regular basis to ensure each of our guests achieve their desired atmosphere.

Beyond a band or DJ for your evening entertainment, live music is a great choice to serenade guests whilst they’re socialising before the wedding breakfast and during your reception. You could go for classical and mood setting with a string quartet, or perhaps opt for an act that will encourage guests to join in a sing-along!

Lawn games

Take advantage of our vast amounts of space with some entertaining lawn games! From the shoe game to rounders, there is so much you can do to keep your guests on their toes and laughing all night long!

You could even opt for some giant party games too – anyone for a bit of Jenga or a spot of Twister? Trust us, these make for some incredible photos!


Perfect for adrenaline seekers, this activity centre will bring out the inner child in all your guests and give them a time to remember. From Segways to Body Zorb Football, there’s laughs for everyone.

It’s mostly suitable for Stag do’s and Hen parties, but if their activities take your fancy for your wedding day, give us a call and we’ll see what can be arranged!
