One of the prizes in our Church Fete Grand Draw last week was a meal for two at the famous Chateau Impney Hotel, in Droitwich Spa. Worcestershire. What a great prize, I thought, and hearing about the recent re-vamp of this 'fairy tale' historical chateau set in beautiful countryside, I have no doubt that the winners will have a fabulous evening.

Chateau Impney has a reputation as Worcestershire's most romantic wedding venue, but one should not overlook the range of fantastic events and entertainment that this French-style hotel offers throughout the year. The hotel's recently refurbished restaurant combines the elegant decor of Chateau Impney with a modern, relaxed feel that provides the perfect setting in which to enjoy that special meal. The original features of the Chateau blend flawlessly with contemporary design to offer guests the vibrancy of open-plan dining, yet still with a feeling of intimacy. Cosy corners are available for those who prefer a more private dining experience, but there is also ample room to accommodate large parties too.The menu celebrates some of the very best of British cuisine, with an array of authentic dishes. Regionally sourced produce can be found on a menu that changes seasonally.  The Impney Restaurant and Bar is open to both residents and non-residents.

The summer months are packed with some eye-watering fun, as Chateau Impney welcomes an exciting line-up of rock and rollers, a seven piece soul band and a chance to try our you Charleston at a Great Gatsby-inspired ball. This coming Sunday, 6 July, the Chateau hosts a Northern Soul All-Dayer. Bringing back the glory days of The Imp Cellar Club, this celebration of soul music hosts a line-up of top Ds and includes a record and merchandise fair, featuring recent and rare Northern Soul items. All proceeds from this event go towards Acorns Children's Hospice Trust.

The Gatsby 1920s Summer Masquerade Ball will take place on 15 August at £50 per guest and the hotel is the perfect venue for this Jazz Age revival. The evening begins with a delicious three-course dinner before Jivin' Miss Daisy take to the stage, playing a repertoire of jazz and swing that is sure to get guests showing off their best moves in their finest flapper dresses and dapper West Egg attire. Enthusiastic revellers can also extend their evening with an overnight stay in one of the hotel's luxury suites.

To bring the glorious summer to an end, The Delray Rockets will be rocking and rolling at Chateau Impney. Guests will need to bring their hot rods, motorcycles and classic rides for an electric evening. Playing traditional rockabilly with a modern twist, The Delray Rockets will set dancer's pompadour on fire. The band will be supported by the Sprayed Cats and followed by the Chateau's resident DJ   

On the 13 September, the hotel, will be stepping back into the 1970s with a revival of the disco days and its Saturday Night Fever evening. Guests will take their seats in the Broadway Suite for a three course dinner before boogieing the night away on the dance floor to the soul sounds of a seven-piece disco soul band. The dress code calls for 1970s fashion - think platforms, flares and disco diva hairdos. At £30 per head, this is not a night to miss.
