Assured Events Brings Christmas Cheer to Maggie's Cancer Support Charity

Assured Events supports Maggies Manchester

Assured Events have provided the Christmas Tree for Maggie's, the award winning cancer support centre, set in the grounds of the Christie Hospital.

The centre opened last year and offers practical, emotional and social support for anyone touched by cancer whether a patent or their friends and family and regardless of whether they are local or visiting the area.  It's a drop-in centre as opposed to a clinical centre, but that doesn't go near doing it any justice!

"We provided the tree last year and wanted to do the same this year", says Karl Perry, MD of Assured Events.

"It's such an inspirational place: the building, the people and the warmth of the atmosphere make for a very human experience.  You walk in and immediately feel that it is a very special place.  As a charity, funds are always limited and there's always competition for what they should be spent on. It would be easy to justify not having a tree at Christmas but we feel that the people that visit and volunteer here deserve it - you should never underestimate the pleasure that people can get from a well-dressed Christmas tree!"

Assured Events will be working with Maggie's in the New Year to further support this amazing place and set of people.

4 Great Foodie Places in Liverpool

event organiser in Manchester recommends Lucha Libre, Liverpool

Great Places to Eat in Liverpool

As an  event management company in Manchester, we often look west along the M62 to search out venues for clients across all budget sizes.  You may think that unusual but our corporate event projects take us all over Cheshire, the North West and the rest of the UK.

Famed for its musical heritage and former Capital of Culture 2008, Liverpool has historically enjoyed a wealth of international influence. The city is also home to many colourful culinary delights, inspired from across the globe, check out our top restaurant recommendations for the city;

Lucha Libre
Lucha Libre is a relatively new addition to the city, serving great Mexican Street food. Sitting around benches, your waiter will brief you on the menu via an iPad photo stream while you a drink out of recycled glass jam jars! In keeping with the authentic street food, dinner is served on red street trays and the bill won’t disappoint either. Lucha is a great place to visit with friends, creating a sociable eating experience without the high price tag! The venue is also home to a quirky underground bar – check out our Liverpool Bars Blog for more info!  It's not for your average formal corporate event - but then we don't do average.

The London Carriage Works
This is not your average hotel restaurant; the Carriage Works is one of Liverpool’s leading restaurants, establishing itself on Hope Street in late 2003. Its name descends from an original sign that was discovered during renovation works; once the home of a coach and carriage builders. Its sheek, contemporary décor is complimented by an equally fashionable menu; delights include scented meats and truffle oils!

Lark Lane
With so many gems housed along its cobbled streets it is difficult to pick out just one! Lark Lane is a chic, bohemian area of the city, home to countless bars, bistro’s, cafes, restaurants – the list goes on. Our real recommendation would be to take a walk down Lark Lane and pick what you fancy – wherever you choose, we guarantee you will not be disappointed! We will however leave you with some personal favourites; Que Casa Pantina (Mexican), Chilli Banana (Thai) & Keith’s Food & Wine Bar (European).

Panoramic 34
Enjoy the city skyline from 34 floors up in one of the UK’s highest restaurants, towering 100m above sea level. On a clear day you can view the Welsh roving hills and even as far as the Hilton in Manchester! Panoramic is an exclusive venue, this is further enhanced by the Private Dining Suite aptly named the “Penthouse”, located on the top of West Tower. Complete with private bar, lounge and plush decor thought, the Penthouse it the ultimate way to dine clients or an exclusive destination for your next event.

Know somewhere that should be on this list? Why not get in touch and let us know – we'd love to hear from you!
