Celebration of life

Celebration of life

8 November 2018

It’s a very difficult time, losing a loved one, and organising a celebration of their life, or funeral tea can be overwhelming. At the Mercure Maidstone Great Danes Hotel, we can host your celebration of life, or funeral tea, with compassion, care and understanding.

You may want an informal afternoon tea, or a sit down meal, with more formal seating arrangements, and the food served to all your guests. This can be arranged for you, in a private room if preferred, and the team will be on hand throughout.

For a more informal celebration of life, with a choice of buffet food, and relaxed seating layout, we can help here too. The newly refurbished Brasserie, set over three levels, and overlooking the grounds provides a light and airy space.

If you’re looking for the option to show photos, or videos, the hotel is well equipped for digital presentations. Easels can also be provided if required.

Listening to what you want, and ensuring everything is ready on the day, can ease some pressure for you. The experienced staff will be available throughout to provide a helping hand, at what will be a very difficult and emotional time.

The hotel is well known locally within the community, is easy to find, located just off the A20, and has ample free parking. For anyone travelling from afar, there is overnight accommodation available.
