Frequently asked questions

Take a look at the answers we’ve gathered to some of our most commonly asked questions. This will help you get a greater feel for Oakley House and why it is the perfect Kent venue for your event.

What is the capacity of the venue?

Capacity will depend on the type of event that you are running for the protection of the venue, the safety of guests and staff, and out of consideration for our neighbours. With that said, we always want to accommodate as many of your guests as possible so please let us know how many you intend to invite, and we’ll be happy to work with you.

Is there a deposit?

We require a £1500 damage deposit as part of your booking. This will be returned in full within seven days of your event taking place, provided nothing is damaged.

Can I bring my own decorations?

We are more than happy for you to decorate your private event space as you see fit. Where possible we can store decorations on-site ahead of time, but you may need to bring them on the day. All we require is that you take these decorations with you at the end of your event.

Do you host 18th or 21st birthday parties?

You can book us for your 18th or 21st, but please note that capacity will be limited to 100 guests. Guests over the age of 18 may purchase alcohol from the bar but must have a valid photocard ID.

Do you have a car park?

There is a car park on-site with space for 220 cars comfortably.

Can I bring in external caterers?

You may bring in external caterers. However, we ask that you inform us at the time of your booking so we can be certain that this is logistically possible.

Are there any pillars in the venue?

There are no pillars in our private celebration space. You can take beautiful, unobstructed photos of the entire event from any angle.
