Our Top 5 Wedding Venues in The Lake District and Cumbria
Wednesday 16th March 2016
Greetings from all here at The Fusion Dukes!
To aid all those out there searching for the finest venues to house your Wedding Band in Cumbria and the Lake District, we thought we would share our top 5 favourite venues in the area. Having graced halls, castles and estates from the North West coast to the heart of the Lake District, we've narrowed down our favourites to the following:
1. Muncaster Castle
Our firm favourite, this venue has it all. Not only is it one of favourites for it's beautiful setting and wildlife (watch out for the tawny owls!) but we've raised many a roof in the estate's reception courtyard. And we're not the only people that love it, having played host to many television and film projects, such as Top Gear and Bargain Hunt, there's a reason people keep coming back for more! Their reception and entertainment space is one of the most well-spirited we play in, so if you're looking for an ideal setting to have The Fusion Dukes put on one heck of a show, this is it!
2. Low Wood Bay
One of our favourites because of it's wonderful interiors and lakeside setting. Low Wood is always a pleasure to venture to and to shake some hips at. With a beautifully lit reception room and truly stunning restaurant area, this place has some terrific spaces. With sweeping mountains draping the backdrops, wonderful scenery (especially in the Spring!) a small jetty and docking area for boats, this place seems idyllic. Where better to play host to The Fusion Dukes?! Typically playing an acoustic set during dinner and then moving on throught to the full show in the evening, we can promise the best when it comes to putting on a great show here at Low Wood Bay.
Another lakeside setting, Waterhead plays host to a slightly smaller group and boasts a wonderfully cosy atmosphere. Remaining particularly modern, our lighting and aesthetic always feel at home here in Waterhead. One of the finest establishments in Ambleside, Waterhead is literally a stone's throw away from Lake Windermere and the steamboat landing, making it a fantastic location for The Dukes to sail up to and rock the night away. The function room is perfect with a humble-sized dance floor, which we always fill to the brim!
4. Armathwaite Hall
Based in the heart of The Lakes, Armathwaite Hall is an enormous stately home boasting fantastic food (we have sampled the chips, and yes they are excellent!) and a very modern setting. The interior is open and vast, with wonderful open windows to view the forest and allow in some beautiful twilight rays just as our first set of the evening begins. With a man-sized dance floor (which is mandatory for a Fusion Dukes gig, as it shall be filled!) and a great stage area, we really can kick it up a notch at Armathwaite Hall! You also may spot a deer or two roaming the grounds.
5. North Lakes Hotel
Central to the Cumbrian town of Penrith and a stone's throw from the M6, North Lakes is easily accessible and is one of the most stunning interiors you will ever see. Featuring a warm, dimly-lit lobby with enormous log fires and visible wooden joists lacing the ceiling, it is the perfect setting for a modern lodge-style wedding. The function room is also sizeable meaning we can really kick it up to stadium level here at The North Lakes. We'll see you there!
So that's a rundown of our top 5 wedding locations here in the Lakes & Cumbria. However, it doesn't matter where you are, we're here to bring the greatest wedding entertainment and live band show to your event. Our format is flexible and we always ensure our performance is the best available, no matter what the space.
So come on, get in touch and we shall see you there!
