The Turnbull Lounge

The perfect venue

At Chester-le-Street Cricket Club, we run a first-class venue that will make that special occasion just perfect for you. We can cater for a wide range of events, from disco parties through to five-course meals for up to 100 people. You can also benefit from a choice of room and layout.

We offer all of the services you would expect from a top function venue.

The Turnbull Suite

The Turnbull Lounge is our secondary function suite. Though smaller than the Castle View Lounge, it remains well-served with its own dedicated bar and entrance area. It also offers the same stunning views as its larger counterpart. The Turnbull Lounge can accommodate smaller functions of up to 60 people, making it ideal for a Christening, naming ceremony or family gathering.

Room Specifications: Seats 100

To be used as a guideline – both suites are fully adaptable to individual needs.

If you make a private booking, there is no room hire for which to pay. Our catering options are priced from £8 per person and range from finger buffets and fork buffets through to three-course meals. All of our menus can be adapted to individual requirements.

If you require disco facilities, our DJ will, before your function, liaise with you to set up a playlist. Alternatively, you can simply let the DJ decide and provide the perfect soundtrack to your evening.

Although we cannot provide your room decorations, we do have a list of preferred service providers who know our room specifications. Therefore, they are well-positioned to help you decide what decorations would best suit your particular event and, thus, give you those decorations, too.

Resident Catering & Hospitality Manager available for your every need

Whatever your needs, our resident catering and hospitality manager can ensure that they are met. To book one of our function rooms or learn more about them, call or email us. You are also welcome to call in and see us; we will be very happy to show you around both suites and discuss your needs.

Our venue is well-suited to a wide range of events, including:

Wedding Receptions of all sizes. Anniversaries / Birthdays / Special Occasions
Company Seminars / Product Launches / Meetings/
Any other type of large or small gathering
