Narnia weaves a magical winter spell over Farncombe

Farncombe Conference Centre narnia scenery
It was only an end-of-year conference, but delegates couldn’t believe their eyes when they stepped into a winter wonderland at Farncombe Conference Centre near Broadway in the Cotswolds this week.
For the largest meeting room had been transformed into the fantastical realm of Narnia, complete with Aslan the Lion and giant polar bears


For one night only, the entrance to the 150-seater conference space was remodelled to resemble two enormous wardrobe doors. Once inside, guests were amazed to find a snow scene draped in white and sparkling blue light. There was a dashing white sleigh, an “ice throne” photo booth and a winter’s disco.

“It was fabulous to see our lovely buildings transformed into a magical other world,” says Farncombe General Manager Gillian Roe. “Just the night before, we were host to a Masquerade Ball. We have such a beautiful setting and the only limit is the imagination.”

Real live reindeer shared the terrace for pre-dinner drinks at the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe theme party. Guests went on to dine and dance the night away. But the next morning, as mysteriously as it came, the fabled world of Narnia had vanished into the winter air.
