The annual B&E Boys Christmas Night Out is always a good event. It’s an opportunity to come together as a team and celebrate the achievements of the previous twelve months and thank all staff for all their hard work.
This year’s festivities were held in the wonderful setting of The Whitaker, Rawtenstall. A wonderful time was had by all on the night. The staff at The Whitaker could not do enough for the Boys party and were absolutely superb in every aspect.
The Whitaker is truly a great setting and the B&E Boys party were allowed exclusive of the museum Drawing Room to present Secret Santa gifts which staff laid out and opened by the team in front of the enormous and beautifully decorated Christmas Tree. Several of the gifts were a little bit cheeky, including a couple of Christmas Mankinis! John Boys said a few words and wished everyone a Merry Christmas.
Special mention and thanks needs to be made for the delicious food prepare at The Whitaker that we enjoyed on the night which was plentiful and beautifully presented.
A fabulous evening was enjoyed by everyone concerned with our recommendation of The Whitaker as a venue for a get-together and celebration as well as taking in a piece of local history. Anybody already thinking about next year’s Christmas party would do well to check out The Whitaker.
The Whitaker is also a great place for families to visit and are putting on a great array of interesting and exciting events. For example, on Monday 23 December, it’s The Whitaker Storytelling & Brunch. This is your chance to enjoy a delightful morning with family and friends in a gorgeous setting. You can enjoy a sumptuous and tasty breakfast and listen to traditional Christmas tales from storyteller, Paul Jenkins, whilst sat in the Drawing Room around the Christmas Tree. This will be a little bit of festive magic for young and old. There will be an extra special visit from Santa too.
The Whitaker is also set to embark on a £1.9million transformation. The funding, from Heritage Lottery Funding, was secured earlier in the year by The Whitaker in partnership with Rossendale Borough Council. The project will feature an ambitious conversion of the former barn and stables. The transformation will mean that the café and bar can be moved to create more exhibition space.
