The Lord Riche Hall (LRH)

Our largest and perhaps our most desirable venue is used throughout term time as the main school dining hall. The facility is well lit and ideally suited to host wedding receptions and large social events.

This beautiful space can be partitioned in accordance with the number of delegates. Although we are able to create a full range of options for your dining experience, please see our sample menu for examples of our tried and tested favourites.


The Lord Riche Hall has its own serveries, or we are able to provide a sit-down option depending on the scope of your function. Male, Female and accessible toilets are located at the venue.

Past Events

The Lord Riche Hall has been most used for wedding receptions and social functions. Throughout term time, the venue is also used to host formal dinners and fundraising events. Due to its location, the venue also serves as a perfect venue for sit-down meals for delegates attending events at our Barbara Karan Auditorium. Perhaps most famously, this venue was used for the Formal Reception of Her Majesty The Queen when she visited Felsted with the Duke of Edinburgh as part of the School’s 450th celebrations in 2014.
