Foodservice firm Horseradish has been appointed by the National Trust to run events at Speke Hall, one of its flagship properties in the North West of England.
The company will offer catering, sales and operations services for both corporate and private events, in line with the growing demand for event space at the historic venue near Liverpool.
The partnership has already seen significant investment, including the construction of a 200-capacity marquee pavilion and terraced drinks deck in the venue's grounds, set to open later this month. The property also features a great hall, which can seat 60 people, and has a civil ceremonies licence.
Simon Osborne, general manager of Speke Hall, said: "This new partnership will enable us to increase the opportunities for events on property, in particular weddings, and other functions which involve large numbers of people."
Angus Wilson, head of catering at Horseradish, said: "The news that we have been appointed to organise exclusive hospitality events at Speke Hall marks a significant addition to our growing portfolio. We're delighted to be working with one of the UK's most recognised brands and delivering events for private and corporate clients at such an iconic venue."
Part of the Chester Race Company group of brands, Horseradish is aiming to expand its portfolio, which currently includes Chester Racecourse, Chester Town Hall, Tatton Park and the Llangollen International Pavilion.
