Wedding Fayres and Open Evenings in West Sussex
We love to see recently engaged couples, so please come and look round the hotel.
Many choose initially to do so at our wedding fayres, showcases and open day we hold throughout the year. So that they can meet us in person to be able to ask a few initial questions they have at the start of their planning. At these events we also invited our trusted suppliers, who many have worked with us successfully over the years. So you can meet them too all in one place at the same time.
Hickstead is in Bolney in the heart of West Sussex. But not all of our couple can always come and see us, so we do attend a few external events.
Throughout the year we hold a number of wedding fayers and showcases both at the hotel and external venues that you can attend. If they are at Solberge we like to invite our trusted suppliers who have worked with us and our couples over the years.
