Banqueting, Conferences, Weddings

 

Ampersand banqueting suiteFill your event with charm and elegance by choosing Birmingham Botanical Gardens as your setting. Three magnificent function rooms are nestled within our 15 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and offer the ideal setting for lunches, dinners, conferences, receptions and weddings. This tranquil setting is easily accessible and close to all major road and rail links, though you’ll no doubt find it hard to believe that you’re so close to the centre of Birmingham!

Each event space is reached through the glasshouses of the Gardens, ensuring that your guests are immersed in the splendour of the setting from the moment that they arrive. During the warmer months, drinks receptions can be enjoyed al fresco, set on the external terraces which overlook the graceful landscaped scenery.

How better to celebrate your new life as a couple than with a wedding in a bountiful paradise which exudes an atmosphere of both new beginnings and tradition, with abundant natural life all around you and a permeating sense of Victorian heritage? Each of our three event spaces are licensed for civil ceremonies and, though each offers a different experience, whichever you choose, you can be sure that your special day will take place in the most stunning and serene of settings.

Though wonderfully suited to weddings, Birmingham Botanical Gardens also lends itself perfectly to all manner of professional and private events, the choice of three varied events spaces making it a highly versatile and flexible venue.

The Garden Suite is approached through the magnificent Tropical House and Terrace Glasshouses, and is the ideal choice for large social functions, accommodating up to 400 guests. The stage area, complete with private dressing room, is a real boon for all types of entertainment, and the Suite also has its own special area, the Palm Lounge, which boasts fabulous views and a superb setting for barbecues or summer drinks receptions.

With its own private entrance from the Cacti House, the Terrace Suite is a superb choice for drinks receptions of up to 300 people or dining for up to 170 guests. This elegant space was originally the ballroom for the Gardens and is traditionally decorated, with a domed ceiling and sprung dance floor. The room boasts its own bar with lounge area, in-built PA system, stage and dressing room. The Loudon Suite is an exquisite Victorian style dining room which offers sweeping views across the Gardens, and is perfect for smaller events for up to 60 guests. The adjoining veranda and conservatory, which overlooks the Japanese Gardens, provide a lovely location for pre-dinner receptions.
