Venue Hire

A unique historical site with rich industrial heritage located within an attractive conservation village, Elsecar Heritage Centre is both a unique attraction and a working hub of industry.

The Ironworks is available to hire for a range of events including fairs, rallies, exhibitions and trade shows.

It has a capacity of up to 900 but can be sectioned off for smaller events. A stage and full lighting rig are available for live music and comedy events. The Ironworks is a flexible space available for private events including weddings, receptions, ceremonies including vow renewals and baby naming, parties, business meetings or conferences. We have a fully licensed bar and in-house catering is available to both trade and the general public.

The buildings are maintained in accordance with their listed status and offer a rare glimpse into the past, with restored ironworks and colliery workshops on site as well as Elsecar Heritage Railway and the world renowned Newcomen Beam Engine.

Elsecar is a fantastic setting for a wide range of events, including corporate events. It is of particular interest to historians interested in the industrial revolution and traditional engineering. The wider site is available to hire for events, as well as for filming and photoshoots.
