COVID-19 Update
Some fantastic news. We still have a long way to go, but wedding receptions for up to 30 guests will be allowed in England from 1st August 2020. All being well, from October 2020 larger events may be permitted. From November 2020 the government is aiming for a "more significant return to normality" with a hope that this might be in place "possibly in time for Christmas". In the meantime, Holiday Inn Leicester Wigston has the following package available for brides and grooms still looking to tie the knot during 2020. A Family Affair: • Civil Ceremony/Partnership hire x 30 guests • Afternoon or evening reception hire x 30 guests • 5 item buffet (in-line with current guidelines) • 1 x Executive bed and breakfast for the bride and groom • White table linen and white paper napkins • Red carpet arrival • Cake stand & knife • Toastmaster £999.00 Inc VAT Available to book now for event dates between 1st August 2020-31st October 2020.

We Are Grateful
Hi Linda, I just wanted to say thank you for being such a great help with organising the bits and bobs that we needed for our wedding. The renovations were the talk of the night and I’m sure some people are going to want to use your facilities after being a part of our wedding. Thank you Linda for being easy to work with and for being prompt in responding to our questions and queries. All the best in your future! Regards Praise

First Wedding Here
We got married at this Hotel on 23rd June. After booking this venue 18 months prior to the wedding we was informed around 6 months before the wedding that the Hotel had been sold and would be refurbished and become a Holiday Inn. 6 weeks before the wedding day we was then informed that there would be no bedrooms available but the wedding would go ahead. We were very concerned that our Wedding wouldn’t go ahead but was assured by the Manager that it would. We turned up on the morning of the wedding to be utterly stunned at the transformation and quality of the Hotel. The day couldn’t have gone better and we really want to thank David the Hotel Manager and his wife and staff for jumping through hoops and going the extra mile to ensure our day was in fact very very special. David the Hotel Manager acted as our Toastmaster and was brilliant. I would also like to personally thank Linda for arranging the whole wedding for us under difficult circumstances. Our guests were very pleased with the quality and presentation of the food and the room layout. The DJ was fantastic. All in all it was the best day of our life. Thank you Mr and Mrs Keen
