News! Rhubarb Farm Wedding Venue

Rhubarb Farm

Rhubarb Farm has added another string to their bow, and have become a wedding venue.

The first wedding was held on Saturday 16th September, when Becca and Josh held their wedding reception on Rhubarb Farm's Village Green.

They had married the week before in New York so chose an American theme for the reception. Under two large marquees, with a bouncy castle, barbecue, disco, New-York themed cake and Children's gazebo - the party was a great success.

Rhubarb Farm is a great venue for that alternative wedding and is great value. For more information email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
