Christening parties at H.G. Wells Conference & Events Centre

If you're looking for the perfect venue for a christening party or naming ceremony, there's nowhere better in Surrey than H.G. Wells Conference & Events Centre in Woking.

The Griffin Room is a stunning setting and makes an ideal christening party venue. It has a very relaxed, cosy and comfortable feel – perfect for finger buffet lunches for up to 150 people, reception drinks or an elegant afternoon tea with all the trimmings.

Taking care of every detail
Your baby's christening party is a really special moment to be treasured, so your Event Planner and Event Manager will make sure every little detail is just right – the right colour balloons and decorations, linen, catering, drinks and music or live entertainment.

Your room can be themed any way you wish: formal or casual, simple or elaborate, intimate or big and bold. Whatever you want for your baby's special day, we will completely tailor your party to your requirements.

Our experienced, in-house catering team offer a great range of christening party menus, with options to suit all tastes and dietary requirements.

Wherever possible, we use locally sourced, seasonal produce from carefully selected suppliers. If you have any special requests, just talk to your Event Manager – we'll always do our best to help.
