Killyon Manor is set in great solitude, in the middle of a sixty-acre estate…but amplified noise carries at night. After midnight, the ballroom windows will be shut and shutters closed for late night dancing, which can then continue till dawn. At this point the party orientates to the ballroom yard and front hall.
The ballroom floor is a sprung, wooden nineteenth century dance-floor, so it an almost slight bounce, Djs using turntables will need weighted tables.
Mains 220v through seven double wall sockets
Ballroom is on a domestic supply, so power use is restricted. LED lighting only. Please check with us and our electricians before you plan.
