Winners of Best Celebration Venue 2014!

Set in a stunning, private location, resting upon the banks of the river The Garden at Eden is one of the largest and most versatile venues that Carlisle has to offer. The team at The Garden at Eden consists of Owner/Director Julie Wannop, Head Chef Steve Failes and Marketing & Events Executive, Hannah Davies alongside many other hard-working bar and catering staff who are constantly working together to provide the latest and most innovative decoration, entertainment and catering ideas for a variety of events; whether it’s a wedding, christening, birthday, anniversary, Prom or corporate party. The marquee has experienced considerable growth as a result of some fantastic and memorable events that have taken place here. The venue has had the pleasure of welcoming a variety of talent locals through its doors over the years, such as musician Ben Draper, Andy Whitaker & Highly Strung and Room 101, Fashion designer Karl Bowman and some of the top names in the national Business sector such as Stobarts, Lloyds Group and Carrs Milling Industries, not to mention a few famous faces including: JLS, Little Mix, Footballer Michael Owen and some of Britain’s Got Talent favourites to name just a few. Hannah, who is the Marketing & Events Executive for the Garden at Eden explains how she feels the unique approach to their service has been able to set them apart from other local competitors and contributed to the venues continued success: “Our bespoke service allows us to provide events which are customised to the individual ideas and budget of each client; we don’t restrict you to any set or standard packages allowing for a more personal and attentive planning process; no one event is ever alike. As a result of the recession we understand that budget has become a real barrier for some customers and we hope that this bespoke approach will help them overcome this allowing them to still ‘dream big’ and achieve all of the aspirations of their event whatever their budget. As a team we’re passionate and dedicated to the service we provide and work tirelessly to ensure everything is taken care of to the highest standard of quality, from planning and researching your event brief, costing, catering, set-up and event supervision, saving you much of your precious time and allowing you as the host to relax and enjoy yourselves alongside your guests, which is at the end of the day what is all about.” On behalf of the whole team at The Garden at Eden we are extremely proud to have received the 2014 award for 'Best Celebration Venue' in Carlisle and look forward to hosting the awards ceremony once again in 2015.
