Kelham Hall Ltd, the company that owns the historic hall and grounds, has been put into liquidation, it has been reported.

It is understood that suppliers and those who have booked events in the hall were informed yesterday (Friday) that the company that owns the hall has been put into liquidation.

A notice posted on Twitter read: “The site is now closed and all reservations are now unfortunately canceled. Anyone with a reservation will be contacted in due course.”

The Kelham Hall website and Facebook page are no longer available and no one is answering the phone.

Many wedding companies posted the news on Twitter today.


A message from the Welcome To The Asylum Facebook page read: “We have been informed that Kelham Hall is in financial difficulty.

“We are suspending tickets until we can discuss options with administrators and local authorities. Both are considering options at the moment and we hope to meet them and of course see where we are going with the event.

“We cannot give more information or answer questions at this time but must ask you to be patient and wait for information. At this point we are as shocked as everyone.”

The present Kelham Hall was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott and completed in 1863. It then housed the theological college of the Society of the Sacred Mission until it closed in 1972.

This is the former residence of the Newark and Sherwood District Council, which sold the building and land to the current owner in 2014, who intended to convert it into a hotel and spa as well as a wedding venue.

In June of last year it was marketed by Christie & Co at a guide price of £ 10million.
