Our first corporate showcase evening was held on Wednesday 12th March 2014 at Parklands, Quendon Hall.

The showcase event was attended by 66 guests from businesses within a 50 mile radius of Parklands.

Our guests were invited for a drinks reception; a tour of our stunning venue and this was then followed by a three course dinner.

As some of our guests were arriving by train from London, Steve Petty-Mayor from Essex Limos collected these guests and transported them in executive style to Parklands for the evening.

As guests arrived at our main entrance they were greeted by our helpful, friendly staff and were offered a glass of bubbly. Guests were given the chance to network with each other in our Drawing Room before being given a guided tour of our stunning venue.

The silk lined Pavilion with the capacity to hold 1000 theatre style and 600 seated dinner was laid with different meeting/dinner scenarios. This showed our guests exactly what we are able to offer, and it did look stunning.

The Banqueting Hall, the setting for our showcase event, looked amazing.

The crisp white tablecloths, napkins against the gold table runners and chair covers provided the perfect scene and many of the guests commented on how stunning it looked. The crystal centrepieces glittered in the candlelight and as guests chatted with good food and good wine, I am sure great friendships and contacts were formed.

Our entertainment was provided by Hollie Kamel, who sang a selection of songs throughout the evening

Thank you to everyone who came and experienced what Parklands has to offer.

“Thank you for such a good evening. It was a pleasure to experience the venue first hand, and I heard nothing but praise from our members that attended, I am sure you will do well with a follow up and you did showcase the venue in a great way, it really felt like they were enjoying it as part of a private function of their own. Please pass on my thanks and best regards to Sharon, she was the perfect host and a real asset to the Tabor Group, the PAs spoke very highly of her afterwards.”
