The Pumping House

The Engine Hall
The double-height Engine Hall is the largest space in the Pumping House, and an impressive setting for celebrations.

Filled with natural light in the day, at night it transforms into the lively centre of the house, with a fully stocked bar and plenty of space to dance. A mezzanine wraps around the room, providing the perfect viewing platform, a space for meaningful conversation or a moment of quiet.

The Engine Hall is licensed for civil ceremonies, with seating for up to 250 guests. It can be fully configured to include a range of seating and dining options, a dancefloor, staging and audiovisual equipment.

The Ollerton Room
With original floor-to-ceiling arched windows, the Ollerton room is a bright, clean space on the upper level that brings together best of heritage and contemporary design. The walls are lined with grey and off-white metro tiles typical of turn-of-the-century industrial design.

A reconditioned oak parquet floor brings warmth to the space, and complements the greens of the forest that fill the windows.

Due to its intimate character, the Ollertoon room is often chosen as a space for wedding ceremonies. It would also be a fantastic room for presentations, away days and retreats. The statement windows provide a unique backdrop for filming and photography.

The Ollerton room is licensed for civil ceremonies, with seating for up to 100 guests. A range of furniture can be provided to create custom layouts and functions.
