Corporate functions

Highwic is a very popular option for corporate functions. Our sprawling lawns are suitable for a marquee seating up to 150 people which is just perfect for corporate Christmas parties, product launches or awards ceremonies. Built in 1862 as a family home, Highwic is steeped in history and experience in hosting events.

We are the perfect inner city venue for your corporate function all year round. When our grounds are used in conjunction with the Ballroom or Billiard House, we really have covered all your bases. We have the space and capability to host any optional extras you may choose to bring along such as bouncy castles, petting zoos, musical entertainment or other unique function features.
