Hi-Life Entertainment have been recommended suppliers at New Craven Hall since they launched this incredible venue in 2016. We provide all NCH clients with our completely tailored service for the type of music they wish to be played at their event. We issue all of our clients with a login to our unique online music planner. We can then take a look at the clients music and decide which of our DJs are most suited to host the event. This may sound like a simple procedure, but it needs to be closely looked at to ensure our clients are happy with the right DJ to host their special event.

We occasionally get more diverse lists from our clients which can sometimes be more specialist music. Some examples of this may include: Reggae, Ska, Indie Rock, Punk, Metal, R&B, Grime, Drum & Bass, Latin Jazz, Persian or Arabic music. We pride ourselves in making sure to provide music for any event no matter what the genre or theme. Most events at NCH throughout the year are mainly weddings, with corporate events, private and Christmas parties towards the end of the year.


New Craven Hall can cater for up to 200 seated or 250 standing guests, making this the perfect venue for many private events. You won’t find a more friendly hard working team who always aim to make your event a memorable day & night to remember.

This year New Craven Hall are proud to introduce our Silent Discos as an additional service to NCH packages with ‘ZiggysSilentDiscos’ for a non-linear approach to more specialist music. This gives the client more flexibility with their music choices and up to 3 channels of music to choose from on our LED wireless headsets.
No need to worry about having a Katy Perry – California Gurls and Dead Kennedy’s – California Uber Alles sound clash!

Simply switch the channel on your headset to tune into your desired taste of music.

We would recommend New Craven Hall to modern couples who wish to escape the traditional themed wedding reception that has plagued the UK for many years.

The Tithe Barn – Bolton Abbey

Hello everyone!

I’m very pleased that we’ve been added to The Tithe Barn at Bolton Abbey’s list of recommended suppliers after amazing feedback from recent events we’ve played.

Sharron, Dan and the team at Tithe Barn have a very similar relaxed, but very professional approach when hosting their events as we do. We are very excited about our future working relationship at the Tithe Barn and other venues in the group.

About the venue

Built in the 16th century, The Tithe Barn is set within the grounds of the Duke of Devonshire’s majestic Bolton Abbey estate in the Yorkshire Dales. This Grade II* listed building is one of the largest exclusive-use wedding [venues] in the UK. It is the latest in Cripps & Co’s barn restorations.99074cbe-ca0d-4995-a8aa-eb0326d4d6f1

Inside, the barn’s majestic scale comes into its own. It is lit with up lights on the flagstone floor and fairy lights woven through the beams that support the barn’s elevated ceiling. Huge, medieval chandeliers refract candlelight around the room and colourful Moroccan stools are scattered around the bar.

Feast in style in The Tithe Barn, on food flame-grilled on a huge indoor BBQ and French rotisseries. Our in-house chefs buy the best, cook it simply and serve it generously. 29d40f7b-6c62-409b-aa23-03958ce05ba4

Ceremonies take place in the main barn, and from Summer 2019 we will also hold outdoor ceremonies on the barn’s terrace with views across the Bolton Abbey Priory ruins and the surrounding landscape. The terrace has large fire pits and plenty of seating, so guests can enjoy the view during post-ceremony drinks.IMG_7644

The on-site Tithe Barn team are on hand to help with everything, from the big ideas to the last minute details. The barn can accommodate 200 guests for a ceremony and dining, with a further 100 evening guests for dancing, bringing the total capacity to 300.IMG_5766

Recent event feedback from our clients


Hi Ziggy and Mark,

Thank you so much for an amazing set at our wedding. The music was exactly on point and in keeping with the planner we gave you. 

Apologies for some of the dreadful requests you will have received, and even more so for some of the horrendous dance moves you will have witnessed.

If we host another party we’ll be sure to contact you and will recommend you to our friends also. 

Thanks again for your exceptional service and Ziggy’s music taste for filling in the blanks on our planner.

Awesome work!



“We Had DJ Ziggy play for us at the Tithe Barn, near Skipton.

I will be honest, unless you actually see/ hear them before you never know what kinda music you get, but I have to say.. The man was on point!!

As an Ex Hip Hop dancer and having quite a few breakdancers/ B-Boys at the event, we have a select ear for music to dance to, and Ziggy delivered! He played a mixture of Breaks, Funk and a Electro! Really set the party on fire and all our guests watched us all throw down.

Even by about 10pm when most of guests had left, and there was only about 20 of use left, we kept going. Even had time to have a chat at the end and found out we both knew the legend of Tony Green.

I cant recommend DJ Ziggy enough, especially if you’re a Hip Hop Head and I highly recommend the Hi-Life Entertainment communication was swift, clear and on point via email and through their website.

10/10 Would Hire again.”
