Functions at Cromwell Manor

A unique venue and experience

Dedicated to a great cause 

Cromwell Manor was built in Collingwood in the 1870’s and has an incredibly rich and colourful history, including operating as a brothel for the last 20 years. It closed in 2012 and the site was sold in 2013.

STREAT has now been gifted use of this site for 50 years. In 2014 the Manor will be largely demolished and the site redeveloped into our new flagship youth training facility, cafe, artisan bakery, boutique coffee roastery, catering hub and function venue-- but we need to raise $3 million first!

We invite you to support our Cromwell campaign by holding your next function or Christmas Party at Cromwell Manor. You will be able to view an amazing design exhibition on the site.

We offer two unique function packages, with delicious food designed and prepared by our Executive Chef Rob Auger, plus the ability to customise your event.

Cocktail Party Style:

- Mouth-watering finger food, hot and cold canapés

- Beer, wine and champagne

- Exclusive use of the Manor and gardens

Gourmet BBQ Style:

Customise Your Event:
