Event spaces

East Afton Farm­house has some of the best event spaces and wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny venues on the Isle of Wight.

The Events barn is brand new and the lat­est addi­tion to East Afton Farm­house. The barn increas­es the num­ber of guests you can have and makes for one of the most incred­i­ble par­ty barns we have enter­tained in. Over­look­ing the cen­tral court­yard, the huge glass doors can be opened in the sum­mer mak­ing one giant host­ing space, and in win­ter can make the barn feel cozy and warm, but main­tain the beau­ti­ful views and setting.

The Coach House an Court­yard is the idea set­ting for wel­com­ing drinks and out­door enter­tain­ing. The large bi-fold doors can be swung open so the out­side meets the inside, and can eas­i­ly fit 50 peo­ple for a cer­e­mo­ny or din­ner, and 100 peo­ple for a stand­ing recep­tion and evening party.

The orig­i­nal Stone Barn is cre­at­ed from the old sta­ble block and has beau­ti­ful stone walls, exposed oak beams and carved chan­de­liers. It makes for an envi­able wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny setting.

Live Music at East Afton Farmhouse

We believe that live music and a great par­ty go hand in hand. Music plays such an impor­tant role in everyone’s life and at your wed­ding it can make it extra spe­cial. From acoustic musi­cians to full par­ty bands and DJ our artist ros­ter can cater to every­thing you could ever want.

Par­ty bands work best in The Event Barn, the newest of the event spaces, and musi­cians like our roam­ing bands and acoustic per­form­ers work so well in the Coach House and Courtyard.

Logis­tics & set­ting up

One of the main ques­tions that we get asked is about the logis­tics of get­ting your band in, set up, and ready to go. Most bands will require between 60 and 90 min­utes to get set up and ready from the point at which they have unob­struct­ed access to the per­for­mance space in front of the beau­ti­ful pic­ture window.

There is always a nat­ur­al lull after din­ner where guests are hap­py min­gling, tak­ing in the stun­ning sur­round­ings, and in the sum­mer this is the per­fect time to get some sun­set shots in the gor­geous grounds of the farm. This can be the per­fect time for the band to load in, set up and sound check. Before you know it and are back from your pic­tures, the band is ready to go for your cake cut­ting and first dance.

If you are more pushed for time or con­dens­ing your day with a lat­er cer­e­mo­ny, you may wish to con­sid­er an ear­ly arrival of the band so they are set and ready before you even enter your par­ty space. This means that the band is set and ready to per­form from the very moment you want them in the evening with­out the need for any turn­around. Depend­ing on the band and your tim­ings, there may be an addi­tion­al fee for an ear­li­er arrival, but that lit­tle extra can make the dif­fer­ence to your evening.

With both options, it is always best to talk it through with our team. Get In Touch and we can always help guide you through the day.
