Literary Lunches Come To The Lindum Hotel

After the Success at Hoghton Tower with Sarah Brown, we were ready for our next event only 24 hours after at our home The Lindum Hotel

This time 70 guests descended on the hotel to see and have a chat to their favorite author Joanna Trollope
Everyone enjoyed the wonderful freshly made Sandwiches and Dainty Patisserie laid before them whilst Joanna moved round the crowds to personalise their copy of her new book
'Daughters In Law'

Paul Rowley was hard at work in the back ground making sure all the food was top notch, still managing to find time however to come out to have a chat with the guests and Joanna Herself

Once again Elaine Silverwood of Silverdell Books of Kirkham had done a fantastic job pulling the entire event together and was their throughout to make sure everything ran smoothly

We look forward to working with Silverdell again soon

A Very Special Literary Lunch Event at Hoghton Tower

It was a rainy day at Hoghton Tower but it did not dampen the spirits of the 60 guests that had come to see the lady of the afternoon Mrs Sarah Brown

The event that was Hosted by Silverdell Books of Kirkham was one of only three book signings that Sarah was doing this year. And she could not have got a more grand venue than Hoghton Tower.

The Great Hall looked fantastic. The ever so brilliant Melissa, event manager at Hoghton had been busy all morning lighting fires and making sure everyone kept the doors shut to keep the place warm. The tables were laid with Rowley's individual sets of Bone China Crockery and every guest got there own signed copy of Sarah's book, Behind the back door.

Paul was on hand to give the finishing touches to the table and the yummy treats that lay ahead

Meanwhile, The Supremo Mr Howard Wing was on hand to entertain the guest with his very own unique blend of Swing Music

Very shortly after, guests were called through to The Dining Room where Elaine Silverwood ran through the afternoon's proceedings and welcomed Sarah Brown

Sarah had the crowd gripped as she gave an insight into life at number 10... Not revealing too many secrets however !

Afterwards everybody was given plenty of time to get their questions answered by Sarah, before afternoon tea was served

Giving Sarah plenty of time to go round for a informal chat and to sign all of her books

The Afternoon was brought to close with a few numbers from Howard Wing's new up coming album

And for those who thought we had forgot about Gordon, well you were wrong. Some of his favourite Cereal Rice Krispie Cakes from Rowley's and a copy of Howards Album.
