The events team


Celine Tarabbia-Collie

Events Manager Longleat Forest 

How long have you worked at Center Parcs?

I've worked at Center Parcs Longleat Forest since February 2002. Initially started in the Leisure Division running Outdoor Pursuits and B2B Team Building and moving to Events Manager in January 2006.

Description of your role

Diverse with a capital 'D'! No two days are ever the same, even year on year. There is a great buzz in the department when we are delivering events; the bigger and more complex the better. As well as the corporate side of the business I oversee central co-ordination for Village events such as Easter, Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas and New Year, so I work closely with chefs, entertainers and all areas of the Village.

Hobbies / interests

Photography, music, cooking and baking, walking...oh, and my children!

Description of your role

My role as Events Co-ordinator is to communicate with both internal departments and external clients, to arrange and oversee the co-ordination of all events here at Longleat Forest. I must liaise with all parties to ensure we deliver successful events, whether this be a day conference, gala dinner or team building activity.

Miriam Kirby

Business Development Manager Longleat

How long have you worked at Center Parcs?

I’ve been at Center Parcs since June 2014.

Description of your role

My role at Longleat Forest is to work closely with our clients to ensure that we meet and exceed their expectations. From the initial site visit, through to delivery of a conference or event, I am a key point of contact for all corporate enquiries. I also attend local networking events, where I can engage with the surrounding community and potential clients.

Hobbies / Interests

I enjoy nothing more than spending any free time with my friends and family! However, I also enjoy walking, cooking and baking, playing the piano and taking an occasional trip to the theatre.
