The Flint Room Full Description
We offer our customers a magical space, something totally unique and unlike no other. We offer you a warm, friendly welcome, quality time and endless support through your journey - our goal is for your special day to be solely about you and we will work with you and your families to ensure that goal is achieved. The joint owners, Lesley and Trish, work closely with independent celebrants and registrars to celebrate unity in all its forms. At the Flint Room, there is no discrimination as absolutely everyone is welcome. Whether it be your wedding, renewing your vows, hosting a baby naming ceremony, a memorial services or celebrating your loved one’s life we will make sure your special day is one to remember. A little piece of history... the building’s former name was St John De Sepulchre (also St John The Theologian) and was situated close to one of old Norwich’s City gates. It may very well be the best known of all the Norwich churches and rides high on the bluff of Ber Street. The top of its tower was once the highest point in the city. So what are you waiting for…….. the former Church has now been lovingly brought back to life by a small, very enthusiastic, creative and passionate team with the full support of Norwich Historic Churches Trust. Believe us when we say it stands out like no other! Don’t be afraid of being different. Be afraid of being the same! For any other information and prices please our website

An incredible venue!
An incredible venue! Uniquely beautiful, with such a welcoming atmosphere. Trish and Lesley were fantastic hosts for our celebration; They went above and beyond to help organise (and customise) our event. I couldn't recommend their service and their venue highly enough.

The most memorable wedding
The most memorable wedding day we could have hoped for. The Flint Room creates all the beauty of traditional church wedding but with the warm charm of a relaxed ceremony. The whole process of hiring the Flint Room was easy from the get go for me and my wife. The day was perfect for our guests and most importantly us!
