Music / Entertainment

The Haybarn is a DIY customisable wedding venue specilising in Pagan weddings. So, when it comes to your entertainment you
are free to chose anything you like. Kaylee bands, acoustic sets by the fire pits, DJs, Cacao ceremonies, Sound baths.. are all possible
Many traditional mainstream hotel venues will often have their recommended DJs they will ask you to use.
This limits your choice of music, and entertainment style. 

You chose

Chose what sort of entertainment you wish to have to suit your taste, style and budget.
Be it a folk band, a DJ, or a show, or even a silent Disco!. We have seen Jazz bands, acoustic guitar by the firepit,
Brass bands, quartets, harpists, street entertainers, magicians and more.

Create a great atmosphere

Your Pagan wedding is all about Nature, Love, friends, and family, and your ancestors.
We can inspire you with lots of ideas.

A good tip

The key is to keep everyone close together and not to disperse people too much.
Do bare in mind that when the DJ or band gets going, the noise levels will need to be considered.
With weddings many people will be wanting to also enjoy a conversation without needing to shout,
and more mature guests, young children and babies will enjoy quieter areas.

Our barn is fitted with a sound limiter set to 90db.

Chill out areas on the field can be created with a small structure and are always a good idea

Good to know

With a chill out space outdoors, there are many areas where guests can relax
and find quieter spots. Do bare in mind though that spreading out your guests in multiple
areas may not create the intimate party atmosphere you may otherwise wish for.

When you come over for the viewing we will discuss your ideas and can show you
what works well and not so well.  The giant fire pit is a massive hit !

Music in any outside structures such as the tips cannot be amplified.
You can have acoustic bands, live instruments etc..  Amplified music will be in the barn.

Noise restrictions / Limitations

If you party is in the barn we do have a maximum permissible reasonable noise level which we are
limited to by the council to 90db, music will go off at 11:30 and the barn will be locked at midnight.

Please note that we will conduct a sound level check for outdoor music. Outdoors the music will
need to meet our noise restrictions, and is limited to acoustic instruments, not amplified.

In the Barn all amplified music will need to be turned off at the agreed time.
It is not possible to extend the music time or sound level.
