 Varley Park, the home of Burnage Rugby Football Club is bounded by the river Mersey and set in emerald playing fields with a parkland golf and footgolf course. It suddenly feels like you are miles away from the city in a peaceful rural idyll. The eleven-acre site can host hundreds in its dual room clubhouse, giving the flexibility for small, medium, and large events. It also boasts a large covered outdoor seating area to allow people to spill outside to appreciate the setting regardless of the weather. It is also an area where a barbeque can be held if that’s what you think will work best for your team. A great team-building day will always involve activities, and in this event venue you can find a great deal more than most.

Obviously there is the golf course, foot-golf course, and football pitch, but we have a specialist adventure company Venture Out on site, that offer all sorts of exciting things to do such as canoeing and archery. Because we have the space we can accommodate most external activity providers if there is something you are desperate for your team to do!



The flexibility is what makes this a wonderful place to host your corporate event. The clubhouse offers space for all sizes of groups. There is an intimate inner room for events of up to 60 people when you want to hire a South Manchester venue for a more elite group, while the main room offers a larger space for 100 guests that can be extended out onto the terrace to enjoy the outdoors. For really large events there is also the option to include the marquee in the outside area turning it into a spectacular space to enjoy for up to 500 people, whether you want it for a large conference venue or a select group. Both interior rooms have large screen TVs, projectors and sound systems for the last word in presentations, and boasts excellent WIFI. So whether you are planning a work day, a team-building social event, or a combination of the two, Burnage Rugby Club will meet your needs.


This flexibility of use extends into all areas. The team is happy to work with you to find the best outcome for your needs. The club offers in-house catering to suit a range of requirements and price points and you can tailor your menus and drinks packages to your specifications. If there are special requirements, the team will recommend external catering companies to ensure that you have exactly what you want and within your budget. The bar is well-stocked and competitively priced.
The comfortable and welcoming interior is a great place for a Christmas party hire for your company where you can enjoy looking out over the fields from the comfort of indoors.
