The Shropshire Golf Centre has invested £75,000 in a new marquee to broaden its capacity as one of the region’s leading events venues and was sold out for its inaugural event to celebrate its launch.
The marquee, which was officially opened by Mayor Malcolm Smith at the launch party on Friday 31st October 2014, is a permanent structure, which can accommodate as many as 200 guests for a variety of occasions including weddings, corporate events, private dinners and cocktail parties.
Featuring its own bar, dance floor and state of the art mood lighting, the new instalment at The Shropshire complements the two existing function rooms, the Loft and Farmhouse, which can accommodate up to 90 and 150 guests respectively.
Stuart Perry, The Shropshire Golf Centre General Manager, said, “Currently we can only cater for up to 150 guests and given the popularity of us as a wedding and function venue, we have responded to the demand for an extra and enlarged events space capable of comfortably accommodating up to 200 people with the instalment of this new marquee.”
No expense has been spared and I’m confident we will become the ‘go to’ place for all occasions.”
I look forward to welcoming new and familiar faces and welcoming many more as we continue to use the marquee for all kinds of occasions throughout the year.”
I have been to many parties over at The Shropshire for various different occasions and event nights over the last few years, but this night was by far the best evening we have enjoyed there. I think having so much extra space and the luxurious finish to new marquee it created a great party atmosphere and everyone seemed to really relax and enjoy themselves. I am looking forward to some of the upcoming events in the new year including a Robbie Williams tribute act on the 7th February.
