Chocolate Fountain Hire In Manchester

Of all the benefits of running a Chocolate Fountain Hire company must be the variety of event venues that we attend. Our most recent booking was for a corporate post-Christmas party in Manchester, the venue for this event is the Monastery.  Here is a little information about this unique venue for all kinds  of events especially Chocolate Fountain Hire!

The historic buildings were built between 1863 and 1872 by Franciscan monks who had come to Manchester in 1861 to serve the local Catholic community. Designed by Edward Pugin, whose father helped design the Houses of Parliament, Gorton Monastery is considered one of his finest masterpieces. It was sadly vacated by the Franciscans in 1989 and, after a false start for a new use, was left prey to significant vandalism and theft.

Following a 12 year fundraising campaign by a charity – The Monastery of St. Francis & Gorton Trust – which was established in 1996 and still owns the building, a total of £6.5m was raised. This included major grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund, English Heritage, the Architectural Heritage Fund, North West Development Agency and the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) which have saved the building from ruin and restored the site.

At www.chocolatefountainhire.com we would definitely recommend anybody holding an event in an around Manchester to take a look at this historic venue.

Our purpose for attending was to supply the chocolate fountain as pudding to all the guests attending. This was a really good event to be at, with an array of dancers, musicians, living statues not to mention casinos,  a fantastic DJ and photography service on hand to take pictures of the guests who dressed for the occasion. This was a ” Masquerade Ball”.  Even the event  management staff were dressed as  monks, in our gallery you will see one such monk sampling  our chocolate fountain. We  think pictures speak a thousand words so please view a selection that we took on the night.
