About us…

Meander your way through the Gloucestershire lanes, nestled on your right, amongst wild flowers and wizened trees, sits Leyfold. Leyfold Events is a new innovative wedding and events venue, which takes full advantage of the British countryside in it’s finest months! 

Leyfold Events (www.leyfoldevents.com) is the brain child of Jo Priest of Backyard Mobile Bars, and Leyfold is situated on Jo’s family run farm in rural Gloucestershire. Castle Yurts Ltd (www.castleyurts.co.uk) are really pleased to  have partnered with Leyfold to offer their 60ft wedding yurt exclusively to Leyfold couples, between the months of June and September.

Castle Yurts have many years experience providing beautiful spaces for many different events (primarily weddings). And Backyard Bars have a wealth of knowledge in managing bespoke events tailored to individual needs. 

This is promising to be a successful and fun partnership! 

Our focus is to create individual weddings and events in a sustainable way, without compromising on quality or style. We approach each wedding and event personally, tailoring all options to you. 

You are able to build your own event,  or turn to us for planning and event co ordination. 

Having managed weddings and events for a number of years we have created a fantastic working relationship with many local businesses. We can do as much or a little as you wish, we can simply offer advice and guidance with supplier lists or full event co-ordination.

Being situated on a family farm we have a wealth of space and stunning scenery, and can hold events  for 50 – 500 guests.

Our venue is yet to hold a ceremony license, however we can offer blessings and humanist ceremonies in additional spaces such as our ancient apple orchard. 


Located between Gloucester and Hereford, Leyfold is nestled away on a family farm, situated on the edge of the Forest of Dean. It has road and rail links within 2 hours of London.

It is surrounded by acres of green pastures, giving you the space and freedom to create your event.
