Overview

An Elizabethan family home, Glemham Hall is available exclusively for weddings, receptions, conferences and private events. It is also home to the FolkEast festival held in the surrounding parkland every August. We offer guided house tours from April to September. Our annual 'Shakespeare in the Garden' theatre event is always a delight to attend. This year Glemham Hall hosts Art for Cure - an art exhibition raising money for Breat Cancer Now. With folk festivals, Vintage fairs & Art Exhibitions, Glemham Hall's current schedule of events has something for everyone to enjoy!
