About us

For over 30 years Bedern Hall has been the setting for people to meet, eat and celebrate; to mark special occasions and to enjoy the sense of place which this amazing building and its history create.


Bedern Hall Company operates as a Non-Profit; so when you hold an event with us the charges you pay go straight back into the preservation of the Hall. So not only can you enjoy your day with us, but you will also be helping to allow others to do so in the future.

Since 1992 Director Roger Lee and his staff at ‘Time & Place Catering’ have provided imaginative menus for all kinds of events at the Hall. Roger is happy to discuss your ideas and over the years has created special dishes to ensure that your event is just as you envisaged.

Our small but professional team, led by Dining and Event Manager Elly Richmond, will take care of arrangements; this is our business and it’s important to us that your event is a success.

Bedern Hall is pleased to support a number of local heritage, cultural, charitable and voluntary sector organisations. By providing such groups with affordable meeting space and helping them organise events we help our City to grow.

These groups include Shopmobility York, York Design Awards, York Festival Trust (York Mystery Plays), York Shakespeare Project, Association of Voluntary Guides.
