Kelham Hall, a popular wedding venue near Newark, has called in administrators meaning those who had booked weddings having to make last-minute alternative arrangements.
On Kelham Hall’s website a statement reads: “Please be advised that Kelham Hall Limited ceased trading on Wednesday 23rd June as a result of the continuing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. The mortgagee has now taken possession of the property and the campsite and fishing pegs are closed.
“We are extremely sorry that we are unable to continue with your booking. Insolvency practitioners have been appointed to place the company into liquidation and they will be in contact with all creditors in due course.”
The Grade I listed building was built in 1863 and was the headquarters of Newark and Sherwood District Council for 40 years before being taken over by Kelham Hall Limited in 2014 in deal thought to be worth around £3m.
It was then sold on to hotelier Jonathan Pass in 2018 who revealed plans to create a business centre and a boutique hotel.
