Outdoor Areas

Firstsite is surrounded by two lush green areas, which are available for hire:

Our D-Shaped lawn at the front of our building is surrounded by trees planted by the Wegg family who lived in Colchester in the 1830s, creating a secluded area with room for a marquee. This is a popular choice for private parties and music events.

Our Berryfield lawn behind our building incorporates a large terrace area and lawn suited to larger outdoor events and al fresco entertaining.
