Cripps Barn near Cirencester
We love playing new venues in Halflight. Cripps Barn is a stunning wedding venue in Bibury and one which we very much hope to play at again. Here’s what you could look forward to if you booked at Cripps Barn...
Not all barn conversions are created equal! This place is adorned with a loving touch. There are twinkly lights everywhere, which really adds to the atmosphere when dusk arrives, and even if there were no lights, the main buildings feel like they have a sense of history about them. The materials are warm and rustic with stone walls, wood beams and vaulted roofs. It’s intimate and suitable for smaller/medium sized weddings.
The grounds around the barn include a large decking area and a fantastic firepit area which proved very popular with wedding guests during our evening there.
The food – we can only comment on the freshly made pizza that we ate an enormous amount of, and it was excellent. (Sorry if we ate a bit too much pizza, guys!). The staff were all attentive, professional and polite.
Other cool things that made for a good party:
– the barn where the band plays has good acoustics. It’s not echoey at all.
– although there is a noise limiter in place it didn’t pose any problems for Halflight and we were plenty loud enough.
– it’s a good size to contain everyone and make the place look full.
– the venue has a PA speaker system that can be used with an iPod, so if you need to keep partying after the band or DJ have left, you’ve got options. This is not always the case at other venues.
We also liked the general size and layout of the buildings which meant that the guests never became too distributed as to make the party feel diluted.
Cripps barn is a wonderful venue in the Cirencester area and has a lovely warm and intimate country feel. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it as a wedding venue.
