Funeral Receptions

Funeral Reception or Wake Venue, The Shropshire, Telford

Losing someone dear to you is a sensitive time, and when arranging a funeral and reception we understand that it needs to be simple and straightforward.

The Shropshire Golf Centre can accommodate small and large groups, offers a comfortable setting convenient for Telford Crematorium, St Johns of Muxton and St Michaels of Lilleshall, and has plenty of free parking for your guests.  Our Events Team is experienced in dealing with funeral receptions and your booking will be handled with the utmost compassion and respect.

Various catering options are available for funeral receptions including afternoon tea and finger buffets.

Naming Ceremonies and Receptions

Christening Reception, Naming Ceremony, The Shropshire, Telford

Celebrating the arrival of a new member of the family is a truly special occasion and The Shropshire Golf Centre is a delightful venue for a reception after a christening, baptism or other religious ceremony or service. Offering a choice of function rooms, we can accommodate groups of 12 to 150 of your family and friends for your baby's special day.

For a non-religious option, our Farmhouse has a civil ceremony licence and is a charming venue for a naming ceremony for your child.  Please contact us for information about ceremony prices.  

Baby Showers

Baby Shower Venue, The Shropshire Golf Centre, Telford

A Baby Shower is a great way to get the girls together and celebrate with your 'mum-to-be' friend or family member.  Shower her with gifts and treat her to a delicious afternoon tea at The Shropshire (and perhaps add some champagne for the rest of the party!)

We can offer a choice of private rooms for a truly special event, or simply reserve a table in our Café Bar and Grill.
