Here at the Hall we’ve always done things just that little bit differently and that includes how we work with businesses holding meetings and conferences with us.
So it’s a real boost to have our approach to the often formulaic world of the conference recognised by Welcome to Yorkshire and The White Rose Awards as finalists in the Business Tourism category this year.
But whoever you are and whatever event you choose to hold with us you can be assured of the involvement of our small but professional team helping to ensure your event is just as you envisaged.
Visit York Tourism Ambassador Award 2015
York’s top tourism businesses celebrated in the Visit York Annual Tourism Awards event at a prestigious Black Tie ceremony, held in the Grand Station Hall of the National Railway Museum on 3rd June.
Now in their 18th year, the Visit York Tourism Awards celebrate individuals and companies who offer that extra special service and experience for York’s 6.7 million visitors, recognising and rewarding excellence in the city’s tourism sector. There was a record turnout, attended by over five hundred tourism businesses, as well as the Civic Party and Right Honourable Lord Mayor of York, Cllr Sonja Crisp.
At this year’s Awards, Bedern Hall Director Roger Lee, was announced as York’s Tourism Ambassador for 2015 for his work at both Bedern Hall and for York Mystery Plays.
There’s lot happening at Bedern Hall as we (finally) move into summer, including Your Local Lunch on 9th June from Noon. Our allotment gardens are looking good, so we are pleased to offer some fresh food inspired by a recent visit to Italy, including broad beans braised with olive oil and mint and a grilled chicken dish with caponata.
If you are a lover of good wine, you may be interested in plans for our new wine club, tentatively called The Bedern Bottega, which we hope will be a monthly early evening event introducing some exceptional wines to taste along with some snacks – a typical Italian Aperitivo! Let us know what you think or signup via the website.
Perhaps a slow Sunday morning is more your style, in which case The Bedern Brunch may be for you. Stroll into town and enjoy a range of goodies and perhaps a glass of fizz along with the Sunday papers.

In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you on 9th June for Your Local Lunch
