Marketing news…

… – On the WLP site, there is a new page on Paul Jaffa, our resident pianist [screenshot top left pic], on the Group page, there is a new About us feature [screenshot top middle pic] and on the BH site, there is a new Art page [screenshottop right pic].
…The WLP Special Events 2011 programme is being finalised and we hope to have the new brochure out within the next couple of weeks. [pic bottom left]
…Special events this autumn at WLP include a Bonfire night dinner dance on Saturday 6th November, Alison Farr in a piano recital on Friday 19th November [pic bottom middle] and Instant Sunshine for a special Christmas Concert on Sunday 12th December – there are a few places left for all of these events.
…Christmas is looming closer with a busy programme of party nights at both WLP and BH, with many dates now sold out. The hotels look wonderful at Christmas, decorated traditionally at WLP, and in a very contemporary style at BH and a residential package at BH this Christmas is a first for us.
…Outsidein Restaurant at BH is now bookable live online via our website with the aid of the Livebookings booking engine.

And finally…

… A major power failure at WLP has occurred, involving a shut down of the whole hotel while the problem is resolved. The hotel will be open for business again on Thursday 4th November. All the teams at WLP and BH have pulled together magnificently to deal with this unprecedented situation, spearheaded by Grant Cook, Tony King and

Dave Seward.
