WAKES AND CELEBRATIONS OF LIFE

Planning a wake or a celebration of life following the funeral can be a stressful task. At Selden Barns, our sympathetic team is on hand to help the process run smoothly and to ensure a beautiful celebration for your loved one. Whether it’s a small, intimate wake or a large gathering, we will always do our utmost to help and take care of your requirements. We will take the time to discuss your preferred format and tailor our venue to suit your needs.

Selden Barns is just 5 miles to the south west of Worthing Crematorium being set in the South Downs National Park in West Sussex, a quiet and peaceful location surrounded by wonderful countryside.

THE SMALL BARN

Our beautiful, traditional, smaller barn is approximately 60 sqm. (38’ x 16’ – 12m x 5m) Features two entrance doors leading out onto our grounds with timber rafters under a tiled roof and exposed brick walls on all sides, making it a convivial and peaceful setting for a more intimate gathering. A range of teas, coffees and juices with tables and chairs will be provided for your guests and is included in the venue cost. We will also provide a staffed bar for guests to purchase drinks.

The cost for exclusive hire of the Small Barn is £275.00 for 4 hours.

If you wish to personalise your wake arrangement, please feel free to add touches such as music from a favourite CD of the deceased, or a memorial video as a background.

“What you did to help us was the most amazing & beautiful thing, I really honestly can’t thank you enough, you didn’t even know Daisy but you made the final part of her journey the best ever, if she was still with us she would have been in her element!! You all felt like family on that day.”
