Wakes and Celebrations of Life

Wake venue hire in Essex

We recognise that some family events are more sensitive than others, and we are experienced at working with families to ensure there are ready-made packages so you have some simple choices to make at a difficult time.

Exclusive private hire of one of our function rooms allows you to create a wake reception with an intimate yet welcoming atmosphere where family members, friends and colleagues can honour the memory of a loved one.

Located in the heart of the picturesque town of Wickford, The Chichester Hotel’s function rooms are suitable to host both intimate and larger wake gatherings – a closed-off dining or banqueting area can be made available as well. No matter the number of guests attending, we are qualified to arrange your wake reception in Essex with the care and sensitivity it deserves.

At this emotional time we always aim to ease the pressure of arranging a post-funeral reception for relatives and friends. A dedicated member of our staff, experienced in arranging wake receptions, will discuss your requirements. We can offer a light buffet, hot and cold food or an afternoon tea.
