An Elizabethan family home, Glemham Hall is available exclusively for weddings, receptions, conferences and private events. It is also home to the FolkEast festival held in the surrounding parkland every August.

We offer guided house tours from April to September. Our annual 'Shakespeare in the Garden' theatre event is always a delight to attend. This year Glemham Hall hosts Art for Cure - an art exhibition raising money for Breat Cancer Now. With folk festivals, Vintage fairs & Art Exhibitions, Glemham Hall's current schedule of events has something for everyone to enjoy!

We visited with one of the Invitation to View tours - and have to say this was the best of the many we have done.......primarily because of the "guide" (owner Philip Cobbold) who is most certainly a "character". Our tour included evening supper which, combined with the tour, delivered a "complete" experience. Definitely one to try and enjoy

What could be better - great - and extremely diverse music in a beautiful setting (I could spend hours just admiring the beautiful and ancient trees - especially the oaks) and a festival atmosphere of great good nature. Not crowded, yet enough happy, relaxed and enthusiastic people of all ages to mean the performances had a real buzz to them.... More
