Thursday, 2nd May, 6-8pm - free parking on-site.

Mr and Mrs Edward Packe-Drury-Lowe kindly invite us into their home, Prestwold Hall for our May Connect Reception for what will be a stunning experience for business connecting in a grand, but friendly and welcoming style.

Prestwold has been the seat of the Packe family for over 300 years and home to the current family custodian Edward and his family. Prestwold is set amongst farmland, parkland and even an airfield which totals over 100 hectares across the estate. Prestwold has a passion for sustainability and renewable energy and Edward takes particular care of the local flora and fauna which is so evident in such a beautiful part of Leicestershire's 'green and pleasant'.

The hall has its own exciting history with the romp of the 'Bright Young Things' from Evelyn Waugh's novel and many a photograph portrait from renowned society photographer Cecil Beaton. A beautiful interior with extensive marble plaster work, Prestwold is a truly special place. Well-known for being a sumptuous wedding venue and for producing the finest cuisine from Henry Weldon, MD of Maverick, but lesser known as a brilliant location for filming, product launches, business events, conferences, dinners, meetings and even accommodation in delightful bedrooms in the hall itself. Edward, his wife Lisa and their top notch team can provide a whole range of possibilities at Prestwold, which at its essence remains a family home, but one which is open, with a warm and charming welcome. We are also joined by Leicester Bentley and Lamborghini whose cars will dazzle on the driveway at Prestwold, with the chance of winning a Bentley test drive experience for our complimentary business card prize draw.

Martin has held a number of prominent positions in the fields of Hospitality, Health, Business and the wider community and was made an OBE in the New Year's Honours List of 2007 for services to business and the community.
