Occasionally we sit and have a think about a quirkier offering for that special event. In our case it is usually how we manage the production in one of two ways; either sympathetically to allow the audience a great visual experience while still preserving the history and the surroundings... or how do we go loco and project Henry VIII up the side of Hampton Court Palace!
Choosing a venue that meets the intent and purpose of your event is vital and these few below are not for the faint hearted. How do you want your delegate to feel as they 'arrive', 'attend' and then as they 'leave'? Excited? Educated? Treated? Loved? Before we do the talk we normally do the walk... Walk through the delegate experience and see how you feel at each juncture! Have fun checking these out.

Elizabethan Banquet? Murder Mystery? Christmas Afternoon Tea – this is a truly unique historical space with some of the most amazing feature bedrooms on the planet! Lumley Castle – home of the Queen Anne room with a bathtub to conveniently watch TV!
Neuschwanstein Castle was built on the request of King Ludwig II who was the king of Bavaria from 1864 until his death at 1886. He spent his entire childhood in the Hohenschwangau castle (which was rebuilt by his father) and he was always obsessed with fairytales. Gorgeous in any season – this castle has a particularly lush green backdrop in late spring and summer! Stunning… well it did inspire the Disney Castle...
