Over the 2017 festive season, Longleat will be opening the doors of their newly completed, multi-functional event space, the Longhouse, for corporate Christmas parties with a wild twist.

Delegates will be able to enjoy a sumptuous, sit-down meal in parties of up to 250 or buffet parties for up to 500. Also, shared party nights for parties of 10+. The Longhouse at Longleat is a self-contained event facility, boasting its own accessible restrooms, kitchen, green room, vehicle access, AV and PA equipment as well as theatre quality lighting rigs, plus an exclusive outdoor area.

As well as evening events, the Longhouse functions as a perfect base for a winter fun day; situated in the park’s Main Square and immediately adjacent to the car parks its location couldn’t be more accommodating. With in-house events and F&B departments, Longleat have the scope to deliver a full day of activities and seasonal refreshments without the cost of sourcing external suppliers.

If its Longleat’s famous animal residents you know the park for, or even the scandalous history of the ancestral Elizabethan stately home, then you can give your guests an all-access pass as VIPs for the day – coming face to face with magnificent animals and exploring the off-show areas of the house before dining in Lord Bath’s Banqueting Suite in the penthouse.

Starting on selected dates from 10th November, and running through to 2nd January, the winter spectacular, the Festival of Light, will once again transform the world-famous Wiltshire estate into a glowing winter wonderland on a spectacular scale.

The much-anticipated theme for Longleat’s fourth Festival of Light will be the magic of storytelling. It draws inspiration from tales new and old; including popular stories like Little Red Riding Hood, the Nordic influenced Little Mermaid, as well as the local legend of Somerset’s ‘Gurt Worm’ dragon.

The inspired narrative of the festival’s 2017 theme will see guests travelling through a mysterious world, peppered with captivating scenes and characters from well-known tales, evoking a sense of fantasy and nostalgia amongst all ages.

Corporate clients have the advantage of being able to book their event and entrance to the Festival of Light well before the general public, and are encouraged to do so as the event has been steadily gaining traction as a must-see attraction for the south-west during the festive season.
