Heritage Portfolio is a Winner at the Event Awards
Mansfield Traquair, a venue managed exclusively by Edinburgh-based Heritage Portfolio, has won the award for ‘Event Space of the Year’ for small venues at the recent UK-wide Event Awards. Winning alongside premium London venues, the Royal Albert Hall and the Natural History Museum, the discerning caterer scored a double by also being runner-up in the ‘UK Caterer of the Year’ category.
In the prestigious awards scheme which commends excellence throughout the UK, Mansfield Traquair was recognised for its versatility as a venue as well as being Edinburgh’s most unique exclusive use heritage venue. The historic gem has earned the mantel of “Edinburgh’s Sistine Chapel” and has played host to a variety of stunning and notable events.
Mansfield Traquair is acclaimed for its flexibility, providing space for weddings with marquee support; events such as Sotheby’s Exhibition, where the event space was set up for an exhibition by day and transformed into an elegant VIP dining area by night; and for the recent BBC Question Time broadcast, turning a former church into a TV studio.
Commenting on his company’s accolades, Ian D’Annunzio-Green, executive director of Heritage Portfolio, said: “Winning Event Space of the Year as well as our commendation for Caterer of the Year is testament to our experienced and professional staff. We are very proud to be ranked up there with such impressive and well-known London venues.”
