On Thursday 17th March, 150 volunteers including myself from the Experience Team attended our World Host Graduation held at Bishop Auckland College.
Where we socialised with all of our team members whilst hearing presentations from Claire Byers, director of communications and marketing at Eleven Arches, Councillor Neil Foster, Durham County Council’s cabinet member for economic regeneration and culture and the man that has made it all possible Jonathan Ruffer.
It was wonderful to hear further insights to the project and the vision from Jonathan Ruffer who thought up the idea of bringing the amazing show of Puy du Fou in Western France to the UK to highlight and showcase the story of our history.
As this event was a celebration of our achievements of passing the course and that the event coincided with St Patrick’s Day, it was only fitting that the refreshments matched the events.
