“An away day was held for the private client department at Shakespeares in June at Eastnor Castle. The venue was chosen as we felt it was a perfect setting for the theme of the day which was corporate branding and personal image. The staff were professional and helpful throughout the day. We would consider using the venue again for a corporate event.”
