Thank you to you and all the staff that helped make our day amazing. All the daytime and evening staff were fantastic. Thank you again for all your hard work and a wonderful day.

Wakefield Civic Society, Monastery Talk

Please pass on from our society a huge thanks for our morning visit, from the excellent coffee and pastries to our talk which was so informative on the whole history of the area, and our tour of the nave. I was amazed at the progress you have made from my original very cold visit with English Heritage in the winter of 2005.

I had my wedding at The Monastery Manchester and was over the moon with the outcome of my day! Food was fantastic and the staff were very helpful. I had two fantastic wedding planners who helped organise the whole day and who were constantly there at the end of an email for me! Very professionally run and everyone had an incredible day!

Jamie and Steph Wedding

‘I would just like to say on behalf of myself and Jamie that we are eternally grateful to you and everyone at the Monastery for making our (my! ha!) dreams come to life. Switching to work with you was one of the best decisions I made, you have been unbelievable from start to finish. The service from all the staff on the day was fantastic and we adored Simon he is absolutely wonderful! The food was exquisite I could only see empty plates from my seat and the whole day was organised and ran to perfection. I just wish I could relive it all again.’
