Branding boutique: The design concept behind Poets House

Ian Cross and David Toulson-Burke from The HOUSE Collection will be joining us to talk about the design concept behind Ely's new luxury hotel, Poets House.

They'll be talking us through their two-year labour of love – the beautiful interior design, the branding and how the various menus are put together. We dare say the subject of the missing apostrophe may come up too!

With a second hotel opening in August, Swynford Paddocks in Newmarket, Ian and David will give us behind-the-scenes insights into the planning and attention to detail that goes into opening a boutique hotel.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the talk, very insightful and particularly liked the way in which he addressed everyone's questions too... I am sure it will be a great success!

    Thanks guys - fascinating and enjoyable talk. I knew nothing about the subject matter so it was nice to sit back and take it all in. Can't wait to visit Poets House!

    Thanks to David and Ian for sharing their insights on a fascinating journey. It would be great to do a Creative Ely event there in the future. Drat! I forgot to pick up a cocktail voucher before they left;(

    I loved the talk too. Poets House is a great addition to Ely. I feel so chilled when I walk into their bar, I feel I am in a different town, away on holiday. I'm sure you need no further recommendation to try it after last night's talk.

    loved this talk. Having designed interiors for 30 years, I was right in there! Not enough to make me want to go back to it though; photography is the right place for me... Helena
