A catered venue for private functions & events in Darlington, County Durham.

Within the Clubhouse we have three function rooms and a private meeting room

Blackwell Meadows can be booked in part, or as a whole, for any event or occassion. We can provide a selection food and refreshments from our 5 star 'food hygiene rated' kitchen and we can arrange rooms to suit the occassion, with projectors and business equipment or lighting and decorations for celebrations. In addition to our function rooms we have fully equipped meeting rooms which are suitable for both business or club meetings which can be booked withor without catering or refreshments. For more information on our catering services please see the sample menus attached.

All our rooms have Sky Sports and large screen projectors, a fully stocked bar and tea/coffee making facilities.

Between our three main reception rooms we have a combined capacity for up to 300 guests, although we are just as happy to take small bookings in our Lascelles lounge for local meetings or societies looking for a warm and friendly place to meet.

Darlington RFC Beer Festival 2019

For the 5th consecutive year Darlington RFC will open up Blackwell Meadows for the annual Beer Festival. Each year we showcase some of the best beers and ciders from around the region, and as we continue to grow the event we look to make each year even better than the last. As always, the event will be completely free entry.

Once again we will be showing live Six Nations on the big screen;
09/02 Scotland vs Ireland @ 2:15pm
09/02 Italy vs Wales @ 5:45pm
10/02 England vs France @ 3.00pm

Visit our facebook page for further updates on this and other events to be held at our club.

As always, we are looking for local businesses and companies, as well as any individuals or groups, who will be looking to sponsor the event. With glass sponsorship and barrel sponsorship available, there are plenty of advertising opportunities. Please feel free to get in contact with any queries regarding this.
