The Brackenborough Hotel near Louth has proudly opened its brand new function suite, named after one of the town’s most famous sons.

Last Sunday The Brackenborough unveiled its much-awaited new function suite – the Tennyson Suite – to the public for the first time, holding a wedding fayre showcasing the venue, in addition to a range of suppliers.

The wedding fayre, officially opened by the Mayor of Louth, Jill Makinson-Sanders, was the first in a long line of events planned for the venue.

The new suite, a 200 seat indoor venue, is named after Alfred Lord Tennyson, the world-famous poet who was brought up in Louth and attended King Edward VI Grammar School.

“We are very excited about this new venture.” said Ashley Lidgard, owner of The Brackenborough Hotel.

“This project has been supported through the Rural Development Programme for England which is jointly funded by Defra and the European Union.

“It was only with their invaluable advice and progressive ideas – coupled with a significant personal financial investment - that we were able to make this happen.

“The Tennyson Suite is the area’s largest event venue, able to comfortably seat in excess of 200, and is a stand-alone building, giving guests the freedom and privacy that they deserve to enjoy their event.”

The Tennyson Suite is the perfect backdrop for weddings and other functions, overlooking a large patio area and an acre of grounds, backed up with ample car parking facilities and an award-winning hotel.

In addition to private functions, the Tennyson Suite will also be offering a calendar of events to the public in the coming months.

Ashley continued: “We plan to offer a real variety of events for the local community, to suit all budgets and tastes. We want the Tennyson Suite to help put Louth on the map.”
