WISHING EVERYONE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM UNDERGROUND.
We had great fun in 2019 with our underground dining, met more incredible people and discovered even more about our cellars and their history, our fantastic team of chalk miners are tunnelling away to make a pedestrian entrance for our 2020 events.
Our fabulous construction team are doing some incredible works with the outside space too, turning the old Guard House into a bandstand, building a much needed new toilet block and designing space for outdoor entertaining.. underground's coming up next year ! Watch this space.
We will be releasing 2020 dates at the end of January. Please register your interest for future events at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01628 829449.
The cellars are also availble for private / corporate hire.
