Couples will also be able to hold both their wedding ceremony and reception at The Old Rectory, as the venue has been granted as wedding licence.

The Old Rectory is a delightful period property that has huge potential to grow as one of Sheffield's premium wedding and event destinations. We will bring our expertise in venue management and operations to The Old Rectory and restore it to the thriving venue we know it can be."
