Family Events & Celebrations

Family Events

We know that weddings are not the only big family events so at the Royal Kings Arms we cater for many other Life Events. Christenings, Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah events, Naming Ceremonies, Baby Showers and Wakes & Life Celebrations are the most common events but we will be happy to discuss anything that you would like to celebrate or host. Our friendly and professional team will be there from the start of the planning to the end of the day itself so come and talk with us and we can help arrange your event as smoothly and efficiently as possible. We can host the event in the Ballroom with its balcony and stunning chandelier or, if you prefer, the understated charm of the Library. We will be delighted to show you round to help you choose where you would like to have the family gathering.

Christenings & Baptisms


The arrival of a little bundle of joy is an extremely happy time that the whole family will want to celebrate. Many people choose to mark the birth of a new member of the family with a Christening. Laying out your hopes and promises for your child, it’s an exciting way to celebrate with all the people that will play a significant role in your child’s life.

Every celebration is different and integrates a number of family traditions that have been passed down generations. We have a range of flexible event suites that can provide ample space for welcoming the whole family. Depending on your chosen time of day, we can serve an afternoon tea or delicious sit down meal giving your family and friends time to coo over the new arrival to their heart’s content.

Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah Celebrations


Mazel tov on your upcoming celebration!  A bar or bat mitzvah is the bright beginning of a meaningful Jewish life. Having ample time to prepare is the key to making sure your day runs smoothly.  Whether you’re putting on a simple luncheon or hosting a glamorous evening celebration, The Royal Kings Arms is here to help you plan and make the day one to remember.

Baby Shower

Few life events can compare to the joy of welcoming a new baby into the family. It’s a special time for everyone concerned, not least the expecting parents. It’s never too early to organise a sophisticated baby shower. A baby shower brings family members together, sometimes from miles around and they can be the perfect way to introduce your little one to the world.

Join us at The Royal Kings Arms Hotel for a baby shower to remember. Choose from a sumptuous afternoon tea – which you can also add bubbly (or non-alcoholic alternative for mum-to-be) to really help you celebrate! Delve into freshly made sandwiches, homemade sausage rolls and an abundance of sweet treats – including the obligatory scones and clotted cream!

With a choice of rooms we can accommodate smaller, private groups as well as much larger parties. On a sunny day, you may choose to celebrate your baby shower on the outdoor terrace of our hotel.

Your celebration doesn’t need to last a day, it can even last the whole weekend and be turned into a mini babymoon! Stay over for the weekend and enjoy dinner in our Brasserie. We promise it will be a memorable and relaxing time before the pitter-patter of tiny feet!

Funerals & Wakes


A caring and empathetic environment for commemorative gatherings of loved ones, families and friends

Arranging gatherings of families and friends can be stressful at even the best of times, so we’re here to provide a much needed helping hand when arranging a funeral wake for your recent bereavement.

Our attentive staff will take care of all aspects of the wakes including providing regular refreshments. You can choose between a full sit-down meal in one of our private function rooms. If you would prefer not to have a full sit down meal we can provide a buffet or afternoon tea instead.

Drinks can be provided for guests either at our private lounge bar or on arrival depending on your needs.

Call our events team to discuss your needs on 01524 34251 or email events@royalkingsarmshotel.co.uk.
