Thank you so much for making our event on 29/9/12 so special and memorable. It was spectacular. Both of you have been so accommodating and all our guests had an amazing day. I will definitely be recommending the venue in future but I am sure as you know the place/ people speaks for itself. Finally please let me know the situation regarding the deposit. Also as a token of appreciation and your efforts, out of the deposit please keep £50 and buy yourselves something nice.

Many thanks again and,

kind regards,

Hassan- 31st January 2020

The empire hall in itself is a majestic venue, incredible features and just perfect for a wedding. The empire also did the decor and designed it with such elegance it was a sight to behold.

The management staff especially Hamza was very friendly and accommodated our every wish. They dealt with us with such professionalism the wedding process became a lot more smoother.

Would definitely recommend this venue.

Sonam Bhawsar- February 2020

Empire is a beautiful venue, we wanted a rustic feel for our wedding mixed with elegance and richness, it’s a bonus with the venue being so local which made our families lives easier. Hamza and Fatima were both very helpful and made sure our day ran smoothly on the day. Would definately recommend this venue if you want a beautiful rustic venue at your doorstep.

Thank you Fatima and everybody at The Empire, our wedding day was truely magical, the venue was superb and set up exactly how we discussed, and the support from everyone their was beyond amazing. You really have a fantastic venue, it is something we will always remember, and cherish, the atmosphere was exhilerating, and this is something that cannot be captured in any standard hall, The Empire really does have something else. I cannot recommend this venue enough, it made our day magical, thank you again.

Thanks to all the team at The Empire for allowing us to hold our wedding reception at your venue. The venue is unique and blows you away the first time you see it. All the guests at the reception were amazed at how awesome the venue looked and are still raving about it now! A venue I will hire again for special occasions. The whole team at The Empire look after you from start to finish.

Review Rating - 5 stars top rating.
I organised the wedding for my son at the Empire in Sept of this year  and from start to finish the service/support given was over and beyond what we could have expected.
The booking was made 4/5 months in advance of the event and throughout this time help/advice was always only a phone call away.  We received much needed  impartial advice re caterers..waiting staff and a whole host of wedding/event related services..nothing was too much trouble.  We could not fault an thing.
The actual building is beautifully  kept and adapted for use without loosing any of it's historical spelendour..we felt privileged to have use of it.

Once again, can I thank both you and your husband for all your support for the function held on last Saturday. All guests and acts on the day were happy to walk away with great memories of the function and venue.
On a positive note, I think the round tables and chairs has been an excellent addition to the venue.
Can you also pass on my thanks your manager who works for you, he was always at hand when needed in regards to the any venue issues.
