At the mention of Holdsworth House, the first thing most people think of is ‘weddings’. For many days of the year the hotel is indeed filled with excitement, laughter and celebration. Gatherings for birthdays, anniversaries, engagements and baby showers are frequent sitings at the hotel. It’s a happy and uplifting place to be and we’re delighted and lucky to be the venue of choice for so many guests celebrating happy times.
But Holdsworth House is also a place of contemplation and relaxation. A romantic meal, an intimate marriage proposal or a peaceful short break in Halifax: guests visit us for an escape from the humdrum and fast pace of modern life.
And so Holdsworth House lends itself well as a place of solace too. When sad times enter our lives – those seeking a funeral tea, wake or memorial venue – we’re only too happy to turn our skills to providing comfort and relief. Celebrating the life of a loved one who has passed away is handled here with sensitivity, care and compassion.
Funeral teas and memorials are a large part of what we do. When you find yourself in this situation and want help, guidance and a venue, we will work with you and your selected funeral home to make it the best it can be. We’ll provide the space you need, the food and drinks you require and the professionalism that will help you say goodbye in the manner you prefer.
Our events team will be happy to discuss ideas and options for hot or cold buffets, drinks and timings, or something completely different if that’s what you would like. Just call us on 01422 240024
