If you thought we could only stage casual events, think again.
We hosted an exquisite five-course masque banquet for over 50 people in a breathtakingly beautiful Hall on Saturday. Check us out. Yes, sir, we can do fancy pants.
Take a peek at our transformed Hall. For one night only, she was bedecked in fairy lights, lanterns, eye-catching ribbons, roses and bathed in candlelight. We feasted on delicious gazpacho, antipasto (the aubergine was particularly sublime), scrumptious feta and tomato filo tarts with roasted pumpkin and salad leaves, chocolate mousse to die for and cheeses to finish. With wines and liqueurs selected and shipped from France, this was an unforgettable meal in a jaw-dropping setting.
Magic doesn’t just happen. Our volunteers make it look effortless, but that doesn’t mean it is! Massive thanks to Marianne for devising and working her socks off for this utterly delightful event (and recruiting her family and friends to give outstanding assistance).
BIG thanks too to our talented chef, Iain, and events supremos Catherine, Gill and Lynne for mouthwatering food and drink and impeccable organisation. We’re grateful too to our intrepid team of teens – Dan, George, Martha, Jago and Annie – who waited tables with such style.
We can’t wait to do it all again. Once we can fit back into our trousers.Planning a celebration? Email [email protected] and find out about availability from October.
This event was staged to raise vital funds for the Hall. We’ll be revealing the scores on the doors soon. Fancy donating? Just click here.
