Nestled in the heart of Manchester’s industrial quarter, Halle St Peters, a Grade 2 listed deconsecrated church was lovingly rescued, restored and reopened by the Halle orchestra in April 2013. Working alongside amazing event design house, Pocketful of Dreams and Brown Sugar Blooms we will be enhancing the building’s natural beauty and creatively curating a stunning botanical themed backdrop to house thirty of the North’s crème de la crème creatives.

Purveyors of the innovative, imaginative and inspirational, White Memoirs this year will for the very first time showcase a botanical banquet displaying different table designs perfectly put together by Pocketful of Dreams. Visitors will have the opportunity to make reservations in advance and sample scrumptious sugary delights home-baked by Tea with Tom whilst washing down the crumbs with samples from cocktail mixologist The Drink’s Enthusiast’s ‘garden gin bar’!
