The hotel has also appointed Georgie Lole as The Wood Norton’s new weddings manager, overseeing the management and day-to-day running of the venue’s some 70 plus weddings per year.

Located just outside of Evesham, The Wood Norton is a Grade-II listed Victorian manor house originally crafted for French royalty.
Since its official reopening in late 2012 the 50-bed hotel has become a popular establishment for fine dining, conferences and events, and for tourists. The property also underwent an extensive £10m renovation process in 2016.
