Special Access for Groups & Events at Chalice Well
It is possible to have access to the Chalice Well & Gardens, outside of public opening hours in order to celebrate meaningful events.
Private Access can be used for celebrations and rites of passage such as:
- Baby Namings
- Hand fastings or Weddings (although we do not currently hold a civil licence)
- Memorial Ceremonies
You can also request Private Access for:
- Group Meditations / Ceremonies
- Group Healing and Invocations
- Initiation Ceremonies
Most ceremonies are permitted provided they are in keeping with the Spirit of the Well. However, it is with regret that Chalice Well is no longer able to offer the gardens for the scattering of ashes.
On application for Special Access we will generally ask you a number of questions about what you are planning for your event and where it will be located in the gardens.
All guests partaking in special access need to be respectful of the Chalice Well as a sacred site and will need to follow certain protocols of the Chalice Well.
Times for Private Access are (subject to staffing and availability):
Evening - April-October - 6.15-8.00pm
- November-March - 4.45-6.30pm
Fees are payable on a per person basis. Adults are £7.00, Children (aged 5 - 17 years) are £4.00. There is a minimum charge for the event of £55 which is also payable as a deposit to confirm your booking. Any remaining fees are to be paid one month before the event.
If you would like to hold a special event in the gardens or would like further information about Private Access, please contact us on 01458 831154 or you can enquire through our online enquiry form.
Please note we generally have a maximum number of 50 people for special events but please ring us to discuss further if you have more people than this. We encourage people to book as early as possible as Private Access is very popular, particularly over the summer months.
