The Canterbury Events Center is typically rented twice per day. The daytime rental session begins at 11:00 AM and ends at 3:00 PM; the evening session typically runs from 4:00 PM until 10:00 PM. (evenings can be extended). Your rental agreement is based on events ending in time for you and your party to be completely out by the time designated thereby avoiding additional charges. This also includes all items brought in by outside vendors. The overtime charge for additional time is $150 per ½ hour or portion thereof. (We allow some leeway in the evening session if an honest effort is being made to gather belongings etc. There is no leeway in the daytime session). Those who book both the daytime and the evening session are welcome to stay throughout the day. (In other words, the 3:00pm deadline does not apply.)
Alcohol accommodations are available through any of our preferred bar-tending service providers. The Canterbury Events Center must be held harmless from any and all claims arising from the use of alcohol. The security deposit is refundable providing there is no additional cleanup required or damage incurred. If using hard liquor, a security guard will be employed at an additional cost. Client or Bartender will provide all alcohol (must be purchased in the state of Utah). Alcohol brought to our facility without a licensed bartender will be fined and confiscated. If alcohol use becomes problematic, we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to terminate the event due to breech contract. If you are NOT having an Alcohol Bar and would like to bring in champagne for a simple toast, then we only charge a $35 Service Fee. Your own Bridal Party will be responsible for pouring into glasses. Please remember to only serve to adults 21 or older. You may bring own toasting ware or rent from us.
The Canterbury Events Center is not responsible for the supervision of children and ask that children be under your supervision at all times. During outdoor events, we ask that children please remain on the pathways or lawns.
We apologize but we must charge fees to protect us if you have to cancel. In the event of cancellation after the first consultative session, or within 120 days of the event – whichever comes first; in addition to the deposit paid, a $500.00 cancellation fee, plus charges for any goods or services received, and any deposits paid by The Canterbury Events Center to its vendors, i.e. photographers, florists, etc. will be assessed and payable. In the event of cancellation within 75 days of the event, the above charges apply and the cancellation fee becomes $1000.00. In the event of cancellation within 45 days of the event, the entire amount will be due and payable upon cancellation. Any of the above charges will automatically be made to the credit card number we have on file.
With the exception of the wedding cake or favors, the complete menu will be catered by The Canterbury Events Center. No other food or drink items should be brought into the venue except items for personal consumption. The standard catering service period during your event is two (2) hours. Please coordinate any time frames (buffet, receiving line, dancing, etc.) that are to be printed on your invitations with The Canterbury Events Center for approval prior to printing. More food service time is available at $150 per 1/2 hour. We will inform you at the close of the food service period, serve your last guest, at which time the linens will be removed from the tables and the room cleared. Receptions require a catering minimum of 150 servings. The minimum catering charge per guest is $5.95. Any changes to the guest count must be made 10 Days in advance. We are only able to send home personal portions of food for the Bride and Groom and the parents of the Bride and Groom. As a general rule, we serve food only in the dining room.
If your event is still over 4 months away or, if it is within 2 weeks from booking your date, your date can be changed for free. If you are within 4 months (120 days) of your event, you will be subject to a penalty of $500.00 to change dates. Date changes cannot extend beyond 60 days of the original date nor can the event type be changed as these will be considered a cancellation of your original booking.
