The Box Tree Restaurant, one of the oldest buildings in Ilkley, is to open its doors to weddings in 2014.

To celebrate the launch of The Box Tree as a wedding location, it has announced its first Engagement Party, which takes place from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on Thursday, November 28.

Combining the chance to meet recommended suppliers and soak up the atmosphere, the evening offers the opportunity to enjoy a glass of fizz, meet the Box Tree team, see the restaurant dressed for a wedding, sample canapés, meet hand-picked suppliers and win a fizz reception.

The event is free and welcomes couples and their families.
