Historic Leeds Pub Set For A Gastro Makeover

A Leeds pub steeped in history and tradition that has gone unloved of late is finally set to receive a spot of much-needed TLC. The Wellington, formally known as The Central due to its location alongside Leeds’ old train station that closed in 1967, has been snapped up by the owner of two local bars and hotels with an aim to be fully renovated, up and running by the end of October.

After a string of owners came and went, leaving its future in doubt, it is perhaps fitting that the pub is set to see local brews and quality food being served within its walls once more. It was the birthplace of the Leeds branch of the Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA) in 1974 and fear not Leeds Christmas party lovers, for it will also be including a top-notch wine list and be offering stunning private festive events!

The Central was a seriously popular place in its heyday, drawing in large crowds for its Sunday lunchtime live jazz sessions and extensive list of beverages, a first for the area.

New owner Mr Cuddy says: “I called in there because my brother’s band was playing six months ago and they were only selling Budweiser and white wine so I could see it was going wrong.

“There was hardly any stock and just three lads behind the bar drinking beer – there was an air of something wrong.”

He said the business’ renewed focus on food will see it serve breakfast, lunch and dinner along with a fresh selection of real ales, lagers, cocktails and spirits.

“I would say it’s going to be a gastro pub, a lot of influence will be on the food side of things,” he exclaimed.

Those looking to take advantage of good food, drink and a historic setting for their Eventa staff Christmas party in Leeds this year would do well to consider The Central.

Thousands Turn Out To Honour Leeds Olympic Medallists

Over 5,000 people turned out in Leeds on Monday evening to welcome home the city’s victorious Olympic athletes. The ceremony, held in Millennium Square, featured all competitors from the area taking part in the games and were led by triathlon stars Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, cyclist Lizzie Armitstead and boxer Nicola Adams, all gold medallists over the past couple of weeks.

The Brownlees were full of joy and emotion, declaring the site of so many people turning out to welcome them back in their home town as “absolutely amazing”. Armistead, winner of the women’s cycling road race event, said that the last two weeks had been the best of her life.

Council leader Keith Wakefield said: “It’s just been an absolute inspiration day after day. We’re thinking of declaring independence because we’ve won so many medals,” referring to the fact that if it were a country, Yorkshire would have ended up 12th on the overall medal table. We’ve got a feeling that Christmas parties in Leeds could potentially be in the running for a few gongs this December too, but that’s just us!

Boxer Adams, who made history by becoming the first ever winner of the women’s boxing event, recorded a special video message for fans as she could not attend, saying “I really want to bring the gold medal and show it to everybody in Yorkshire.”

We here at Eventa have certainly been as inspired as the people of Leeds by the games and this weekend we will be heading up to both London and Nottingham to run large summer events that will include some sporting hilarity and medal ceremonies as part of the packages.

Rest assured lovers of Christmas party nights that we will be bringing this element to some of our festive events too, and that we shall return from the Midlands in possession of a few mock Mo-bot photos!

Our Top Three Leeds Christmas Parties

Although it’s technically summer (even if it doesn’t feel like at the moment) the corporate party planning world is hot at the moment, because many companies are booking their Christmas parties earlier and earlier nowadays.

Now because there’s so much to choose from we decided to help all you ladies and gents out by telling you about some of our favourite Christmas parties. Now because we offer so many different parties we’ll be doing it by city.

So stop Googling Christmas party nights 2012 and check back to see which of our top 3 parties are the most fabulous, all singing all dancing (o.k. maybe not that) wondrous Christmas parties that we offer! And to start off we’re going to be covering Leeds this week, so without further delay let’s start…

Back to the 80’s

Ah the 80’s the decade nobody likes to admit that they actually like but don’t bother to hide it from us; because we know you long for leg warmers, shoulder pads and vintage Madonna (when she could actually get away with wearing a cat suit.) So as a nod to one of the greatest eras of all time we’ve put together this party complete chocolate fountain, ice carvings, a cocktail bar and a live DH who’ll be spinning some classics tunes for you to dance to.

Rio Carnival

For company’s who want a real party vibe this fiery Christmas party will have everyone possessed by the spirit of carnival (despite the fact that it’s being held in Leeds and not actually Rio!) The venue is fully decked out in tropical decorations, plus if that wasn’t good enough already there are also acrobat performers to wow you. A full five course menu is also included and if you’ve had enough of strutting your stuff on the dance floor there are also dodgems and roulette tables to keep you entertained!

Music Legends

Imagine, Elvis, Freddie Mercury and Meatloaf all in one room belting out classic tunes for your pleasure. O.K. so we don’t have the power to bring back some of these legends but we do have the power to bring you some of the best tributes act in the country. This party also has a red carpet entrance, delicious 3 course meal and glorious chocolate fountain. So put on your best frock (or suit) and get ready to party till the crack of dawn with all the legends.

So that’s it for our best Leeds Christmas parties. We hope you enjoyed the list and we hope that it helps you when it comes to booking your company’ Christmas party.

The Magic Of Tinseltown To Grace Christmas Parties In Leeds

Red carpets, glitz and glamour are all coming to Yorkshire this festive season with a series of Christmas parties in Leeds that should bring out the city’s best sparkly dresses, sharp tuxedos and of course the accompanying paparazzi snapping away at the stars as they saunter in to their Champagne receptions and exquisite Christmas party dinners. The only difference is that you are the stars and the paparazzi won’t be trying to catch you out in uncompromising positions but capturing guests in all of their elegant glory.

Harewood House, a luxurious 18th Century pavilion dubbed the ‘St. Petersburg palace on a Yorkshire hill’, shall play host to a run of Christmas parties Leeds 2011 simply dubbed ‘Hollywood’. For the price of a DVD boxset of films, party goers shall enjoy the red carpet treatment and a wine reception looking out over the rolling countryside. Guests take their seats in a grand banqueting hall decked out in the style of an LA awards ceremony to enjoy live music and exquisite dining. Then it’s over to the DJ to bring the house down. Loosen those bow ties and take up a partner for a memorable evening of dance floor action!

Back in the city centre at the Queens Hotel the red carpet makes another appearance and dinner is this time accompanied by the traditional mince pies that make it unmistakably a Christmas party, whilst at the historic Royal Armouries Museum a truly indulgent evening of fun awaits. If you fancy live dancers, a chocolate fountain, a ‘Legends’ show featuring tributes to Robbie Williams, Meatloaf and Kylie Minogue and a cocktail bar at which to relax and enjoy a bit of mixology then you’ve most certainly come to the right place!

Once again we’ve proved that company Christmas parties needn’t be something to dread, but something to look forward to with excitement and anticipation as the bash of the year. These Hollywood-inspired Christmas parties in Leeds are certainly testament to that!
