Newstead Priory Christmas Party

Friday, 30 January 2015

Our Christmas Party, held Friday 12th December, was a fantastic evening full of festive fun. Guests included competition winners from our social media page, local businesses and journalists.

Christmas at Newstead Priory is a very special time of year as the open log fires and stunning decorations create a truly magical, festive atmosphere. The event was kindly supported by Flawless Photography, Newell's of Brigg, The Little Chocolatier, House of Townend and Tooley's Amusements.

On arrival, guests were escorted to the vaulted room and welcomed with champagne, mulled wine and canapés, before moving on to dine in the reception barn. Swing boats, courtesy of Tooley’s Amusements, were enjoyed by all and the evening was a huge success, as everyone enjoyed the delicious food and festivities.
