Weddings at Cheshire's Historic Crewe Lyceum Theatre
The spotlight is on you with your wedding at the historic Crewe Lyceum Theatre. Steeping history, the Lyceum provides bespoke wedding packages taking place in Cheshire's hidden gem, the historic Edwardian auditorium, and modern reception areas.
About the Auditorium and Reception areas
The Crewe Lyceum auditorium is the jewel of South Cheshire. Lovingly restored to its early 20th century grandeur, your celebration starts as you walk up centre aisle to the stage. The dramatic red velvet curtain lifts to reveal your wedding party, a rolling cloud of smoke ushers you into the spotlight. You smile, you kiss, you affirm your love as family and friends look on. In the lavishly decorated Circle Suite, your guests await your entrance and toast to your new life together.
Civil Ceremonies in the Lyceum Theatre Auditorium
The Lyceum auditorium is licensed for civil ceremonies with a registrar or celebrant of your choice.
The Lyceum auditorium can seat up to 660 people, or be intimately light for a charming celebration with your nearest and dearest. Our in-house Technical team will work with you to create the atmosphere you want for the moment when all eyes are on you. From a West End spectacular, to a classy fringe performance, we can help you set the mood.
Reception Areas In the Circle Suite
From centre stage to off-stage, the Lyceum Circle Suite can host up to 80 people for your wedding breakfast, 140 people for an evening, or make use of the theatre’s entire space for a party of up to 300 guests.
The Lyceum Circle Suite is dramatically light by a full-length two story window which brings the best of daytime light into a versatile space. The Circle Suite can be transformed to match your wedding’s theme and can also serve as an evening function room. With private access, it is your space to see your dream become reality. Post-ceremony drinks, reception food or a wedding breakfast can be served in the Lyceum Circle Suite.
The Lyceum Circle Suite features a private bar for your party and an historic Bechstein Grand Piano which can be made available for live entertainment.
