Get Some Inspiration from our Historic Party Venue in Derby

The Old Bell Hotel has been used for social gatherings, parties and meetings for over 350 years. In its early days the building would have had cosy side rooms heated by a fire place. These spaces were later developed into the grand spaces the building has become known for. Today we have 4 unique function rooms on site which capture a different part of The Old Bell Hotel’s history making it a truly unique party venue in Derby.

Anniversary Party venue in Derby

Anniversaries are a great time to get family and friends together to celebrate with great food and drink. If you’re organising an anniversary party for someone you know we can help make it extra special with slideshows and photos stretched across the room. Perfect if you have lots of embarrassing (or lovely!) photos.

We can also customise our menu to make it personal to you. If it’s a golden wedding anniversary we can add a golden twist to your food or even create gold inspired cocktails for a special touch.
