Years of planning weddings have given the team at Selden Barns the expertise that would naturally lend themselves to hosting anniversaries and engagement parties. Whether you are recently engaged or celebrating your diamond anniversary, the team here is ready and able to give you a party to remember.

The main barn can seat up to 200 guests and be used exclusively for your event. We can adapt the barn to suit your needs, whether it’s a small intimate gathering or a grand party.

We have an abundance of great outdoor areas, overlooking the beautiful South Downs in West Sussex. If you want to light up the barbecue and give the kids some space to run around, we’ve got you covered!

Enjoy some evening entertainment with a live band or DJ. The large checkerboard dance floor is sure to get people dancing!


Our beautiful, traditional, smaller barn is approximately 60 sqm. (38’ x 16’ – 12m x 5m) Features two entrance doors leading out onto our grounds with timber rafters under a tiled roof and exposed brick walls on all sides, making it a convivial and peaceful setting for a more intimate gathering. A range of teas, coffees and juices with tables and chairs will be provided for your guests and is included in the venue cost. We will also provide a staffed bar for guests to purchase drinks.

Event Party Venue


Our beautiful larger room is approximately 360 sqm. (62’ x 62’ – 19m x 19m). The whole barn is swathed in beautiful, ivory pleated marquee drapes with swags and tails. The East facing wall has windows overlooking our lawns and the rolling fields and woodland where cows and sheep graze, while the horses and deer roam freely. The dining area can be configured to comfortably accommodate from 50 to 200 guests seated or up to 250 standing. All tables and chairs in the barn are included in the venue cost.

The venue is available for viewings at all times, even at short notice, but please …with an appointment.
