Farnham Castle Meeting and Conference Centre has become the latest venue to join Lime Venue Portfolio, further strengthening the group’s status as the largest collection of unique and unusual venues in the UK. The venue joins Hever Castle, Beaulieu and Hatfield House within the portfolio and gives event organisers an unparalleled choice of historic venues across the South East.
Farnham Castle has already established itself as a first-class events facility within the conference and training market, with its 11 meeting rooms supported by 32 en-suite bedrooms. The venue, which can host up to 180 for a conference, has a unique blend of historic venues and modern facilities, and will partner with the sales, marketing and service initiatives found within Lime Venue Portfolio.
“Lime Venue Portfolio has great relationships with event organisers across the country and can help us drive further awareness of our great facilities and build relationships with new customers,” comments Ian Parkinson, Operations Director for Conference Channel, Farnham Castle. “It’s a great time to be joining the portfolio and we look forward to being in the company of so many other outstanding venues.”
“This is becoming a record year for us in terms of acquisition of new venues” comments Jo Austin, Sales Director, Lime Venue Portfolio. “We’ve already seen the arrival of Aston Villa, Twycross Zoo and Edgbaston Priory Club, and with Farnham Castle, we’re offering our customers another excellent historic venue which is proven in this market.”
Jo continued, “Our growth makes us an increasingly attractive option for events professionals who demand choice. We’ve got some really exciting plans to open up our portfolio to new customers by showcasing how unusual venues deliver great events.”
Lime Venue Portfolio announced the arrival of Aston Villa FC to the portfolio earlier this year with Twycross Zoo and Edgbaston Priory Club following shortly after.
