Alverthorpe Manor was a beautiful setting for my daughter's wedding. The caterer, Joshua's, was fabulous and so easy to work with- professional staff, totally accommodating, providing delicious food in generous portions.I would highly recommend this venue.

Had a surprise birthday party in August for my husband at Abington Art Center. The team, especially Kimesha was amazing. My husband and I live in Chicago, I had never been to Alverthorpe so it made for planning with built in stress. Kimesha made it all so easy whether rain or shine she had it all arranged. My husband is a musician so as part of the party many of his musician friends came and jammed together at Abington Art Center's band shell. The party was on a warm summer day in August and the Art Center is amazing for an outdoor party. We began at the band shell down the lawn from the manor house to listen to my husband and his friends play music. We then had a wonderful lunch up the hill at the outdoor Pavillion. The setting was incredible. The day and the location could not have been more perfect...thanks.

It was a beautiful event, perfect venue - everything about Alverthorpe Manor was perfect. It was beautiful, elegant, perfectly situated, easy parking, wonderful staff. Steven, the young man at the front desk during the event was helpful, charming and delightful. Jody was easy to work with. A perfect evening. Looking forward to hosting future events at Abington Art Center.

We received so many compliments from our wedding guests on our beautiful choice of a reception venue, and we couldn't agree more! We knew as soon as we walked into the pavilion that it was exactly what we were looking for - beautiful grounds to explore during the cocktail hour, and a classy (covered!) outdoor space for dinner and dancing. The day-of could not have gone better! We arrived at the Art Center after our ceremony to find all of our decorations set up (I believe the AAC worked with the florist to coordinate it all). They even figured out how to set up things that I did not leave instructions for, and when the night was over they had already packed most of our things away so we didn't have to waste more time than necessary getting everything taken down. It's a very DIY-friendly venue, and they help you facilitate it. They let us use the kitchen the day before the wedding to assemble our frozen desserts, and were happy to let us set up lawn games on the grounds.

We had a great experience at the Abington Art Center. Everything was taken care of and the day was beautiful. It was a great choice!

Abington Art Center was the perfect location for our wedding! It was a really beautiful setting at 30-50% of the cost of the other venues we looked at in the area. The outdoor space is fabulous and we took some fun pictures in the sculpture park. The team there is also great to work with -- Sharon was really professional and has great relationships with all of our vendors, making the day run seamlessly.
