Leeds-based hospitality and event planner Dine has added three new properties to its growing portfolio for private parties, corporate hospitality and weddings.
The company has agreed partnerships to provide event management and catering services at Gorton Monastery in Manchester, New Craven Hall in central Leeds and Bertie’s in Elland.
The new partnerships are part of Dine’s expansion plans. The group posted turnover of £2.6m in the financial year 2015-16, up 9% on the previous year, boosted by year-on-year growth for outside catering division Dine Events.
Gorton Monastery is a Franciscan gothic church and friary which can accommodate 600 guests. The Grade II listed building has undergone a £65m restoration and is complemented by a garden area.
New Craven Hall in south Leeds (pictured) offers a luxury urban space for celebrations for up to 400 guests (200 seated). The industrial aesthetic with exposed brick and metal beams remain true to the building’s original function while creating a unique space. There is also a large yard area decorated with festoon lighting.
Bertie’s in Elland is a popular venue offering three banqueting rooms.
Dine founder Daniel Gill said: “We are delighted to be working with the teams at Gorton Monastery, New Craven Hall and Bertie’s. We pride ourselves on delivering truly memorable experiences with delicious food in stunning surroundings.”
Dine celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. The company caters for 100 corporate events and 200 weddings annually.
The business 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.
