Our last open day was fabulous (see the selection of photos below) and the next one will be even better! There will be a small marquee located near the entrance to the building to allow for a bigger selection of exhibitors. As usual throughout the day we will be holding bridal fashion shows and demonstration ceremonies. At 3pm the Mayor of Dudley will arrive to pick the winning ticket from our free draw to win a Priory Suite wedding at Priory Hall open day and a Wollescote Suite wedding at Thomas Robinson open day. Everyone attending on the day will be able to enter the free draw. Exhibitors of wedding related services and products will be in attendance with many offering special deals if you book on the day.
If you are planning to tie the knot make sure you put the date in your diary!
News from our last open day
On Saturday 8th March 2016 the hall and grounds of Priory Hall were opened up to the public as Dudley Citizenship and Registration Service held their 7th annual open day and wedding exhibition.
Almost 600 people attended this year’s open day as 30 local companies exhibited within the hall and grounds.
Inside Priory Hall and the marquee bridal wear, wedding cakes, reception venues, balloons and bridal jewellery were just a few of the services on display. Local photographers were available to book for the big day and the brides had the opportunity to snap up bargain wedding gowns in the 'I do 2' once worn wedding gown sale.
Outside was a fantastic selection of cars available for hire from the TV and film themed Ghostbusters car, Only Fools and Horses yellow peril and the A team van to a vintage Phantom Rolls Royce. Skyline catering was on hand to feed hungry visitors with their hog roast.
A programme of events was held during the day entertaining visitors with demonstration wedding ceremonies and bridal fashion shows. Lucky free wedding prize winners were chosen when the Mayor of Dudley picked their ticket from the hat. They will enjoy getting married at Priory Hall for free.
There was a variety of exhibitors on hand at the open day to help couples make all their plans for their big day.
