Armada House Showcase

On the 24th June 2016 we celebrated 10 years of business at Armada House.  From 1pm we opened our venue to our suppliers and clients to showcase the best of conference and events in Bristol.  

Armada House is proud to represent itself as an independent, local and bespoke conference and event venue in Bristol.  All the team at Armada House have been quite excited about throwing a party and in sharing what we think makes our venue different. As a part of our showcase we had live entertainment throughout the day in our largest space the Cabot Room as well as tours from our director Colin Porter around our historic venue. Some of our highlights included Armada House goodie bags, a beautiful wedding set up in our oak pannelled Elton Room and Polycom video conferencing.


To kick off the entertainment we had Bev Gough playing live jazz music in our Cabot Room, followed by our regular party DJ Mike from Disco's for Hire.  Our Cabot Room was a hive of activity with magic from Adam Richards and tastings from our suppliers Bath Ales and Avery's Wine Merchants.

We wanted to show off our brilliant in house catering from our  Head chef Chris who cooked up a storm in the kitchens in preperation.  On the delicious menu was:

Homemade pistachio biscotti for our goodie bags

Poached crayfish, mango and corriander salsa

Goat’s cheese lollipop rolled in sesame and poppy seeds with beetroot sip

Pressed pork and pistachio terrine with homemade piccalilli and sour dough crouton

Duo of salmon bilini

We want to take this opportunity to send out our thanks to all of those that came to the event and joined us in celebrating our landmark birthday. All of the team here had such a great day and it was a pleasure to show everyone around the Armada House venue. Here's to the next few years!
