The Bowl, a 50acre stunning natural glacial formation is merely one area of the 550 acre licensed area... which in itself is just a section of the 2,000 acre 'Matterley Estate'; so we have room to house events on an extremely large scale.
The existing licence allows flexibility with operating times for entertainment up to 4am. Where required, we have our own in-house expertise, able to provide all you need in relation to licensing, event safety, noise management and many other services to support your event. We have built up good working relationships with the licensing authority, responsible authorities, including Winchester City Council, Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire Fire & Rescue and have good support from local residents. An onsite team with over 14 years experience of large scale events is available to help with operational issues, including plant and heavy vehicle recovery/movement. The Estate has traditionally played an active part in all hosted events, supplying help and advice where required, not only to the promoter but also to subcontractors.
Transport routes are first rate and catchment areas offer enormous potential. Matterley estate has direct access to the A31 dual carriageway and the A272 main road. These roads provide easy access for the A33, A34 and M3 with direct routes to and from London, Brighton and the M4 corridor in under 1 hour and Southampton, Portsmouth and Bournemouth in minutes. Winchester Railway Station is on the South Western Main Line with direct links to London Waterloo and all the above mentioned towns and cities. Southampton International Airports a mere 12 miles away!
Multiple access gates around the site as well as a comprehensive network of heavy duty hard tracks throughout the site allow easy access/egress and separation of different traffic, as well as emergency access provision and therefore excellent traffic management is provided for. Other infrastructure includes a ring main supply of mains drinking water for you and your traders to connect to, a massive holding tank for grey water and multiple telephone lines with broadband.
This really is the most suitable site for any outdoor event!
We ask you to please come and have a tour around the site and have a meeting with us as we are very keen to be involved with your project. To discuss your requirements and arrange a meeting please get in touch via the contact section.
