What is the most important factor when booking a venue for a Christmas party?


New eco-venue from De Vere


Orchard House - 0811_Conferencing.jpg

Last week, De Vere Venues opened its latest property in the Midlands. Orchard House is a 202-bedroom eco hotel located within the grounds of the University of Nottingham. The state-of-the-art site has been designed to reduce carbon emissions by incorporating sustainable features such as a green roof and energy-efficient lighting, glazing and ventilation systems. Four meeting rooms have space for up to 20 delegates each and there’s also a 160-capacity restaurant and bar area. Other event spaces include a rooftop garden, which is reserved for those staying in executive suites, and a mezzanine level for receptions for up to 100 guests. For larger events, the nearby East Midlands Conference Centre holds up to 850 delegates across 21 rooms – all with free Wi-Fi.
