Longleat, nestled on the rural border of Somerset and Wiltshire, is generally known for its sprawling estate, exotic animals, and iconic stately home. However, did you know you they also host legendary Christmas parties?
Over the festive period, delegates can enjoy exclusive parties in The Longhouse event building for up to 250, or shared party nights for groups as small as 10 (party nights are Friday 6th and Saturday 14th December). Exclusive or shared party nights include full bar service, a sumptuous sit-down Christmas meal and live music, to which you can dance the night away.
One of the things that sets Longleat apart from other party venues is the renowned Festival of Light, which is included in their corporate packages to sweeten the party deal. On selected dates from 9th November – 5th January, the lantern spectacular will once again transform the world-famous estate into a glowing winter wonderland on a spectacular scale.
Longleat’s much-anticipated sixth Festival of Light will showcase ‘Myths and Legends’. It draws inspiration from epic stories from around the world; from the gods and magical beings of ancient Greece, to heroic tales of British folklore. Expect to see Pegasus, the Genie in the Lamp, the Kraken and the Chimera, not to mention Zeus, Hercules, Medusa, Aphrodite and so many more.
Corporate clients have the advantage of 30% off tickets plus their own dedicated event manager, right from enquiry. In-demand dates are booking up fast, as well as the shared party nights, so get in touch with the team and illuminate your work do this Christmas.
