Benjamins opened in Birmingham Street, Halesowen in December 1997.
The building was originally The Primitive Methodist Chapel and a foundation stone for this building was laid in August 1889 by the then Mayor of Dudley Benjamin Hingley Esq. MP and although not named after Benjamin Hingley the stone was certainly the inspiration for the name of the Banqueting Suite.
The stone now takes pride of place over the fire place in our Cornbow Room.
Set over 2 floors Benjamins can accommodate functions of all sizes up to 450 guests and indeed up to 650 guests if the whole of the building is used for one function!
The Cornbow Room, on the lower floor, is suitable for parties up to 200 guests, has its own stage for DJ, Band or any other entertainment, with access to the large patio area which can be used for Barbecues or Pig Roasts weather permitting, also due to its layout is ideally suited for smaller events.
The Aldridge and Beaumont Suites are adjacent on the first floor and are usually used as one room for larger parties, ideal for formal weddings due to its open plan layout.
For civil ceremonies where the guests for the ceremony are 100 or less the ceremony is usually conducted in the Beaumont Suite whilst the removable wall is in place between the 2 Banqueting Suites and then the room can be opened out for the Wedding Breakfast and evening guests.
For civil ceremonies where the guest numbers exceed 100 both rooms can be open and used for the service and can accommodate up to 200 guests for the service.
Civil ceremonies for up to 100 guests can also take place in the Cornbow Room.
Civil Ceremonies of less than 100 usually conducted in the Beaumont Suite or Cornbow Rooms.
