The Garden Room is already securing bookings for weddings and awards nights into 2018, the society said. It can accommodate up to 460 people for conferences or 250 to sit down banqueting, with catering. One of the first events to take place at the Devon venue is a Wedding & Special Occasions Fayre on 7 May.

The Garden Room joins a number of other venues that are available for hire at Rosemoor which include The Peter Buckley Learning Centre, with two teaching classrooms, exhibition room and gardens and a lecture or exhibition hall. It is also one of 10 venues licensed for weddings or civil ceremonies in the garden including intimate stables and shelters.

In addition to weddings, Rosemoor hosts more 100 events, courses and workshops every year ranging from live music concerts and theatre productions to art and sculpture exhibitions, craft, food, plant and antiques fairs, flower shows and competitions.
