Benjamin Clarke’s performance experience has been particularly significant in the last few years, with high points coming from his performance with Neil Diamond at the 2012 Royal Variety Show and a concert with Dancing on Ice and X Factor star Ray Quinn. In addition to his stage performances, Benjamin has been performing for church and civil weddings for over 20 years and so it comes as no surprise that some of the most prestigious wedding venues in the UK now recommend him along with their wedding services. Benjamin is now one of the most sought after wedding pianists in the country and Tabley House is one of the many renowned venues that is proud to recommend his services.
Built in 1767 by John Carr of York, the elegant, light Georgian rooms display important paintings and furniture collected by the family over the centuries. Art work include those by Turner, Lawrence and Reynolds, while furniture is by Gillow, Bullock and Chippendale.
Considered by many to be the finest Palladian house in the North west of England, Tabley House is a unique and beautiful venue for ceremonies and drink receptions. Set in delightful parkland, this stunning Cheshire mansion offers an historical yet intimate setting for your special day.
Ceremonies are normally conducted in the Gallery, often considered to be one of the finest rooms in Cheshire, or in the Portico Room which is also a splendid setting for a champagne reception. Drinks and canapés can be served whilst your guests enjoy the views across the park to Tabley Mere.
Tabley’s exquisite and historical beauty is a perfect match for the stunning piano playing of Benjamin Clarke. The quality of his musical performances and wonderfully stylish portable grand piano are certain to make your wedding a day to remember.
Tabley House is managed by the Tabley House Collection Trust, the governing body of which is the University of Manchester. It is supported by a group known as The Friends of Tabley, and by volunteers. The rooms on the first floor, with their collection of paintings and furniture, have been open to the public since 1990.
Tabley House is a former stately home in Tabley Inferior (Nether Tabley), some 3 kilometres to the east of the town of Knutsford in Cheshire. The house is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building.
