ESU at Dartmouth House

In the new year, we announced the news that Dartmouth House was joining the Graysons Venue portfolio so to celebrate this joyous union we held a drinks and canapes reception on Tuesday night with members from Graysons and the English Speaking Union (ESU).

Since the pandemic, this is the first time members, volunteers and sponsors have visited Dartmouth House and been introduced to the new collaboration between the English Speaking Union and Graysons. The drinks and canapes were sponsored by Graysons so it was guaranteed that no glass was left half empty throughout the night. It was wonderful to see the rooms filled with a buzz of laughter, chatter and music from a live pianist.

Director General of ESU, Jane Easton praised the evening of being ‘a huge success for the charity, and we had so many lovely comments about the new catering… and the friendliness and efficiency of staff.’

We look forward to the return of the members to this beautiful Georgian mansion, who can now enjoy a light refreshment, lunch or hosting their own private event at the wonderful Dartmouth House.
