We can hardly contain our excitement here at Hickory, we’re absolutely thrilled to announce that Dunglass Estate, one of our exclusive venues, has been awarded the coveted title of Small Venue of the Year at The Drum Scottish Event Awards 2016.

We were in an enviable position going into the evening; our only competition in the Small Venue category was one of our other exclusive venues, Eskmills Venue in Musselburgh.

The Drum Scottish Event Awards are the only awards dedicated to recognising and rewarding the very best of Scotland’s events industry. The panel of judges comprised some of the most talented and experienced Events and Hospitality people in the industry. It is a huge honour to win this award and be recognised for such an impressive accolade.

The judges described the Dunglass Estate as a beautiful and traditional historic estate with a wow factor.

Hickory also received a commendation in the second category we were shortlisted for at the Scottish Event Awards, The Green Award. As a Gold member of Green Tourism, the world’s largest sustainable certification programme, we pride ourselves on our commitment to sustainability in all aspects of the business.

The win at the Scottish Event Awards comes on the back of a series of award successes for us. We have been shortlisted for eight industry awards, including The Drum’s Content Marketing Awards for our Botanical Gin Bar at the Royal Highland Show and Best Event Caterer at The Caterer’s Foodservice Catey Awards in London – both of which are UK national awards.

Our award success for Dunglass Estate is a huge reflection of the beauty and impact of the estate, and also the hard work and dedication of the Hickory team who deliver excellent service and delicious food time after time.
