I’m Julie and I’ve been running the meetings and events office at The Portland by Thistle in Manchester for the last three years.
One of the things I enjoy most about my job is getting to meet and work with so many different people every single day. We treat every event as if it’s our own, whether it’s a wedding or party, and we do our upmost to ensure each experience with Thistle exceeds expectations. From the moment a brief comes in, it’s all hands on deck to ensure it’s an absolute success from start to finish.
