At Canterbury Hall, we love to host events and occasions of all types and sizes. Whether it is an intimate gathering, grand affair or a social occasion, we welcome any and all events into our space.
From a grand rehearsal dinner to a romantic ceremony, we specialize in bringing the vision of your perfect events to life. Canterbury Hall can accommodate up to 275 guests for receptions & celebrations.
Extravagant birthdays, themed showers, retirement parties, and other once-in-a-lifetime-worthy events, call for plenty of space. Whatever the occasion, Canterbury Hall is a unique location for your special event.
Jump outside the office and typical scenery of the corporate world, while still staying close to home. For groups/companies looking to escape the city to get closer together, Canterbury Hall serves as a perfect spot for corporate events, company retreats, annual galas & small conferences.
Canterbury Hall offers, as well, many unique amenities not found at most wedding venues and event spaces. Our goal is to take the guesswork out of planning and make your day run seamlessly, helping you create beautiful memories.
Our sister property, Grace Church Tampa Palms, boasts beautiful windows and a immaculate natural lighting to compliment your ceremony.
Lighting is extremely important for wedding couples because it allows their photographers and videographers to capture the most special day of their lives without any complications. We’ve specifically designed our building to allow as much natural light in as possible including floor to ceiling windows and nice light walls.
High ceilings and large windows offering natural light and views of the Tampa Palms nature preservation. We also offer plenty of grassy areas for outdoor ceremony or options for yard games, etc.
Our unique design is unlike any other in Tampa. With its elegant yet simplistic style, it fits nestled in a forest of towering Tampa Palms. We also designed this building with the nature in mind. It was our goal to have as many windows as possible in an effort to bring the outside in.
We offer a full commercial catering kitchen available for cuisine preparation within our banquet hall.
We are prepared for whatever Mother Nature brings our way! Our building is state of the art when it comes to climate control. Whether it’s the hottest days of summer or coldest of winter, we have you covered. Our building has commercial heating and cooling systems to keep you and your guests comfortable under any circumstance.
Your rental of the property for the day includes exclusive use of the event space. No competing with other parties. Privacy and space is all yours.
When you host your event with us, you have access to our rental furniture at no cost to you. We provide tables and chairs for all of your guests for ceremony and reception. For an outdoor ceremony, you will need to rent chairs. We can provide you with a recommendation. For an indoor ceremony and reception, separate furnishings will be provided in each rooms, so there will never be a need for a room flip, or moving chairs.
Our In-House banquet hall rental furniture inventory includes:
Additional quantities are available at request for a rental fee.
If you decide to host your ceremony indoors, we have dedicated a beautiful, vaulted indoor sanctuary space specifically for this use! If you choose to do an outdoor ceremony and the weather is not working in your favor, our sanctuary will be a stress-free backup for you! This room is separate from our reception hall so your vendors never have to rush to flip the room for dinner. Outdoor or indoor- either option is truly a win-win!
Our outdoor ceremony area is truly amazing! Nestled in the middle of the towering pines of Tampa Palms, this is a perfect spot for an outdoor ceremony. Outdoor ceremony seating is not provided.
