The Lake at Barston has been providing live entertainment in the form of tribute and dinner nights for over a decade now, known to feature fantastic acts every Friday and Saturday night, and many more dates over the festive season. If you’re looking for a fun night out whether for a casual meet-up or a celebratory event, our venue accommodates up to 200 people, and we cater to groups of up to 22 people (or even multiples of this amount).
Whilst the events are aimed at adults rather than children, they are usually family-friendly and suitable for all ages, but there may be some material that is more suitable for over-18s. Children over the age of fourteen are allowed to attend with their parents, but this should be kept in mind.
There is a smart-casual dress code and we ask you not to wear trainers, caps, torn jeans or hooded tops, but you can have fun with fancy dress, though New Years’ Eve events are slightly more formal.
The entertainment nights also include a three-course meal, which is a set menu but also caters for vegetarians, with gluten-free options. We will try to accommodate any other dietary requirements if possible, but you should check the menu before booking to make sure of its suitability for all the group.
The arrival time is recommended between 7-7.30pm, with the meal usually served between 8-9.30pm, and the live show starting at around 10pm. The entertainment may be broken into two 45-minute sets with an interval, and others may run into two hours. There may be two different types of entertainment in one night, for example a tribute act and a cabaret singer. The night continues until 1am (or midnight during the week), where you can dance and drink the night away. We recommend organising your travel back in advance.
Small groups require full payment, but large parties can pay a deposit of £5 per person. Please also be aware that this doesn’t include a service charge, so any gratuities will be shared between all staff and are always much appreciated.
You can find out about reduced ticket options when you have made your first booking with us. This means that you can enjoy our wonderful nights at a fraction of the cost if there are any remaining last-minute tickets available a few days before the show.
