Frequently asked questions
Can we have exclusive use of the venue?
Yes, or you can hire just a part of the bunker and grounds for the day.
Are you licenced for civil ceremonies?
Can we have the wedding ceremony outdoors?
We have lots of space outdoors for a tipi, marquee or something else with views of beautiful Cheshire countryside, the radar and bunker.
Do you charge corkage if we supply our own wine?
Can we use our own caterers?
From what time can we get access to decorate the venue?
Either the night before (if not booked) or anytime from 8am.
What time does the reception need to finish?
Party all night! The bunker is self-contained, so if you're inside it won't upset the neighbours. We would like to get some beauty sleep though, so finish by 2am.
Are there noise restrictions if we have a live band?
No, in the bunker you can play as loud as you like!
Are fireworks allowed?
Is confetti allowed?
Yes outside, but biodegradable please.
Are candles allowed?
Outside but not inside as it would be a fire risk to the heritage building and your guests.
Is there a honeymoon or bridal suite?
Is there accommodation on site?
I'm afraid not, but we've got nearby places we can recommend.
Is there additional accommodation nearby?
Lots of great options for all sorts of budget and parties.
About Secret Bunker Weddings
The quirkiest wedding venue in the North West. Celebrations and ceremonies in a nuclear bunker in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.
If you are looking for the perfect unique location for a wedding with a difference, look no further than the Secret Bunker – one of Cheshire’s most exciting wedding venues.
Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker is one of the North-West’s most popular museums and offers plenty for your guests to see. As a former civil defence bunker, it’s home to the largest public display of nuclear weapons in Europe, an underground world of secrets and 35,000 square foot of fallout-free fun.
Working in collaboration with Anywhere Weddings and Events, the museum can host your ceremony and reception, in one of the most unique settings in the UK. They offer a flexible service, so whether you’re looking for an exclusive use venue for the entire day, or a private space for your evening reception, they have plenty on offer.
You can find all our information in our brochure including our prices on our website.
Pricing info shown in the listing summary:
Typical hire is based on a Saturday exclusive full day hire off-peak. We have two levels of hire: exclusive and partial. Exclusive use means we will close the museum for the day and you will have exclusive use of the whole museum and outside surface si
