We’re delighted to unveil the new look of the Hangar at Kesgrave Hallfollowing its recent redevelopment – making it one of East Anglia’s most exciting event venues.

The Hangar, East Anglia’s Events Venue

Inside, the Hangar has undergone a fabulous transformation and now boasts silk lining, carpets, laser lights, haze machine and a whole ceiling covered with the most amazing black star cloth lighting. There’s also suspended lighting and huge leather sofas in the reception area, providing a perfect relaxing area away from the party. The transformation isn’t just on the inside though, with extensive work having also taken place outside to landscape ‘the secret garden’, an area which will be used exclusively for weddings and parties and will become the perfect backdrop for wedding photos.

Paul Milsom commented: “Over the last few years we’ve hosted a variety of events on an ad hoc basis, but you’d always needed a big imagination and an even bigger budget to get the space looking great. Not now, the Hangar has been turned into a seriously glamorous room, ideal for all types of year round events from weddings and parties to product launches and conferences for anything from 80 to 300 guests.”

To make sure the new business immediately achieves the service standards that Milsom Hotels & Restaurants are well known for, we’re also delighted to announce that Geoff Hare, who has been our Catering Manager here in Dedham for several years, has moved to Kesgrave Hall to mastermind events there.

When you are next at Kesgrave Hall, do ask the team to show you in The Hangar. Then all you need to do is start planning a party – with a dedicated front of house team plus fabulous menus, we can help you with that as well!
