Leeds-based hospitality and event planner Dine is targeting further growth after adding Sefton Park Palm House in Liverpool to its portfolio of venues for private parties, corporate hospitality and weddings.
The new partnership is part of Dine’s expansion plans for 2018 and beyond. The addition of Sefton Park Palm House has extended the company footprint for bespoke hospitality experiences into the North West.
Sefton Park Palm House, set in the 235-acre Grade one historic Sefton Park, is an octagonal, three-tiered, Grade II listed Victorian glasshouse. Designed and built by Mackenzie and Moncur of Edinburgh, the Palm House opened in 1896. The Palm House now houses one of the oldest horticultural collections in Britain, originally containing more than 4,000 different plants.
Dine will work alongside the Palm House’s in-house events team to develop local talent and create bespoke events with quality food and service to match.
The ambition is to build on the Palm House’s already stellar reputation and make it one of the leading private venues in the North. Dine will also be working alongside local Caterer’s Relish to maximise the venues potential and secure the Palm House’s long-term future in the community.
Dine founder Dan Gill said: “We pride ourselves on delivering exquisite events in stunning surroundings and it’s a tremendous honour to be able to work in so many historic locations.
“Sefton Park Palm House is a wonderful venue and we will work with the team and the local community to ensure it can be enjoyed by future generations.
“The revenue plan is in place and we’ve begun engagement with the key stakeholders, local talent and the community. We are really excited to start on what we know will be an incredible journey and a new chapter for Dine at Sefton Park Palm House.”
Established in 1998, Dine caters for more than 100 corporate events and 200 weddings each year as well as providing exclusive private dining. The company provides event services for organisations ranging from English Heritage and the National Trust to the owners of some of the UK’s most notable private houses.
