Summer Sensations!

Barbican

Barbican, London EC2Y 8D

The Barbican is Europe's largest

multi-arts and conference venue

with a diverse programme of art,

music, theatre, dance, film and

creative learning events.

High up, under the glass roof of the

centre, is the Conservatory Terrace

which overlooks the tropical treetops

of the Conservatory. It's a magical

setting for either a drinks reception or

private dining for up to 200 guests.

If you're worried about the weather,

the spectacular Conservatory, which

hosts events for up to 100 guests,

is protected by its glass roof. It may

be in the heart of the city, but it’s a

real tropical oasis, home to finches,

quails, exotic fish and over 2000

species of tropical plants and trees.

Established in 1874, Searcys

have been at the Barbican

for over 20 years providing

catering for a huge range of

events, from intimate dinners,

company parties and

corporate conferences.

Passion and decades of

experience help create a

menu of the freshest, best

seasonal ingredients whether

it's simply sandwiches, finger

food, a fork buffet, street food

or a sit down dinner.

Library, telling its own story with

period features and an impressive

stained glass window.

Dating back to 1872, it's an

imposing building inspired by the

Neo-Gothic splendour of the Palace

of Westminster. Fine paintings,

unique artwork and numerous

original features create a stylish

interior born to impress.

For candlelight dining,

The Study is perfect for up to

ten people while the Worth

wows with floor to ceiling Gothic

windows. The Leigh overlooks

the courtyard and is perfect

for intimate parties for up to 18

bar and cloakrooms.

Head Chef Alec Makins will

tastes and dietary requirements,

and the hotel's wine experts

Industry Interview

Industry Interview

Conference and Events

Co-ordinator Leigh Walker,

from Barton Grange, shares

her working week with us…

What does your typical week involve?

Usually, I can be found taking event

and conference enquiries and meeting

potential clients plus finalising all the

details with brides and grooms for their

wedding day at Barton Grange. I work

with our Head Chef in creating bespoke

menus and also with our Reservations

Manager to ensure our corporate and

wedding guests are allocated newly

refurbished guestrooms for their

overnight stays.

Leigh Walker

What has been the highlight of your

career so far?

There are so many lovely moments to

choose from. It's such an honour when

a bride and groom entrust you with

bringing their dream wedding day to life!

However, my total career highlight was

performing in the closing ceremony

for the London 2012 Olympics as a

roller blading nun!

Why should an event organiser use

Barton Grange Hotel?

What attracted you to the leisure

industry?

My early years were spent in my parents'

guest house in Blackpool and before

moving in to event organisation, I was a

professional ice skater so I have always

had a connection with the leisure industry.

We can arrange every aspect of an

event or conference, from start to finish.

Our attention to detail is second to none

and the quality of our facilities means

delegates have everything they need for

a productive meeting or successful event.

01775 843410 Lines open Monday to Friday, 8.30am - 5.30pm 18


Industry Interview

What big piece of advice

would you give conference

organisers using your venue

for the first time?

There's no need to be stressed

organising your event. We can assist

with every detail, no request is too big

or too small and if we can't arrange

something in-house, we'll be able to

source it for you.

The last few years have seen a lot of

investment and refurbishment at the

hotel. Can you tell us more?

There's very little which hasn't been

refurbished. We've renovated the deluxe

bedrooms, the bathrooms in the Executive

rooms, the corridors and our front of house

lounge, reception and gardens.

Which refurbished area is your

favourite?

Ooh, that's a tough one! I think the most

exciting change is our garden. An area

on the site of the previous Barton Grange

Garden Centre, next to our Walled Garden

Restaurant, has been transformed into

a lovely space for post-ceremony or

pre-dinner receptions and it's also a big

hit with our brides and grooms for

wedding photos.

What do you love to do when you're

not working?

Spending quality time with my husband,

our two children, two cats and extended

family - preferably on a sunny holiday!

Family are everything.
