About Crewe Hall: Old Meets New

By QHotels Marketing |  21st December 2015  |  Comments 0

Crewe Hall, which this year celebrates 400 years since the first brick was laid, is a Jacobean mansion located near Crewe in Cheshire.

Event planning checklist from QHotels

Our events coordinators across QHotels' 26 C&E venues work closely with event organisers to plan for every eventuality, come rain or shine, so hopefully our expert checklist will help event organisers create a Plan B."
