New marriage for caterers
A TOWN centre catering firm is enjoying a new partnership with an iconic 13th century library.
Vanilla in AllSeasons (ViA), based on Wood Street, has paired up with Chetham’s Library, one of Manchester’s oldest buildings, for events including weddings.
The company, which is owned by Adam Evanson and Simon Bailey and has been running for five years, is used to grand venues, catering for events at Heaton House Farm and Capesthorne Hall. It is hoped this latest partnership will expand the business into a new market across Manchester.
Adam Evanson, hospitality director of ViA, said the history and heritage of the 13th century building will be a truly idyllic setting for any couple.
He said: “We’re really looking forward to showing people round the venue and working with each couple to make each event truly bespoke and unforgettable.”
Aside from weddings, Chetham’s Library and Vanilla for AllSeasons will also host corporate functions in the private dining rooms of the building.
Stephanie Walker, Chetham’s Library duty manager, said it is an exciting venture for the building.
She said: “This is Manchester heritage, we want to make sure the building will be put to good use.
“Four spaces are available for hire, including the grand Baronial Hall.”
