Bedford Blues Events cater for any occasion with five purpose-built versatile function rooms on our Goldington Road site. Capable of hosting a variety of private parties, weddings, dinners & Balls for as little as 30 to over 300 people.
Set amongst the open grass spaces of the Clubs two pitches, just a five minute walk from Bedford town centre, yet still with parking provisions for over 100 vehicles it is the perfect event destination.
Our five separate venues are diverse enough to suit most budgets and requirements.
THE BLUES MARQUEE
The jewel in the crown of the five venues is the custom built Blues Marquee offering a permanent luxury event destination for up to 336 seated guests. The neutral backdrop allows this venue to be dressed to the customers’ requirements, whether hosting a wedding, private party or dinner and dance.
This marquee has the capability to cater for all uses and has been dubbed the best party venue in Bedford. Amongst the unique and special features are the bespoke illuminated bar, on site kitchen and washroom facilities built to permanent standards.
Equipped with full heating throughout and a stage to grab everyone’s attention, it provides a year round destination suitable for groups of 100 & over.
THE SCRUM BAR
Following a recent re-fit The Scrum Bar now provides an event space perfect for groups of 80-200. Features include; seating for 100, kitchen and catering facilities, ample restrooms, stage area, large screens, sound system and the best bar at the Club.
The Scrum Bar is an ideal venue for parties (adults or kids) and is open all year round including Christmas for any occasion from birthdays to christenings, and with a giant bar to ensure none of your guests are kept waiting.
THE EAGLE BAR
Situated upstairs in the main clubhouse this event space offers panoramic views across the ground with an intimate bar providing a venue for smaller gatherings. This event destination has been used for wakes, business meetings, conferences, dinners and parties.
Surrounded in club history the room has a sophisticated feel more suited to personal events. The Larry Webb room, attached and entered only through The Eagle Bar provides a brilliant breakout room for separate meetings, training, exams or buffet space. The facility is as flexible as you need.
The Former Players bar can be found at the bottom end of the rugby pitch making it ideal for private or personal occasions. As the smallest of our venues it is suitable for parties of up to 60 people. Inside are two rooms including a bar perfect for hosting smaller meetings, conferences or parties with a breakoff room suitable for holding buffets.
The Lifesure Suites are the perfect blend of rugby and socialising. Available for hospitality at all rugby games, these suites offer a private box to watch the game from and a personal bar to keep the drinks flowing. As well as the box and bar, booking a suite also means all guests are entitled to a complimentary match day programme, a four-course pre match luncheon and a visit from the players before and after the game.
Away from match-day the Lifesure Suites offer an ideal event space for business meetings, training and exam rooms, team-building or breakout rooms to larger events situated on site.
