A new lease of life for part of the former Royal Worcester Porcelain site on Severn St gave Worcester lawyers Harrison Clark Rickerbys the ideal venue for their summer reception and a preview of the new facilities.
More than 100 staff and guests admired the new venue across the courtyard from the Museum of Royal Worcester, which is now home to The Nest Worcester (an expansion of the successful Ledbury café), as well as the Henry Sandon Hall, which will host cinema, music and theatre events, a large art studio which will house workshops, and the Samuel Driver White room, which will be available for meetings. Mr Driver White was a former senior partner of the firm.
Guests enjoyed locally-sourced food and drinks as well as the music of Kringo Blue – taking the art theme through the evening was artist Mikey B, who produced caricatures for guests to take home in exchange for a donation to the firm’s charitable trust.
Charlotte Thornton-Smith, head of the firm’s Worcester office, said: “This is a brilliant venue to have right in the city centre, and I’m so pleased to see that the Royal Worcester site has come to life again. I hope it goes from strength to strength, because it provides such a great outlet for local talent and produce.”
