Pippa Crossman is the Weddings and Events Planner at Berkeley Castle. Together with her team, she produces various events each year at a venue that has been family home to the Berkeley’s for 900 years! The most remarkable thing about the Castle is that for nine centuries, the building, the Berkeley family, the archives (which go back to the 12th Century), the contents, the estate and the town have all survived together. Its place in history is significant, not just because it is still intact, but because the Berkeley family and their home have played an important part in the power struggles of so many centuries. In this episode Pippa talks to Toby about the challenges she faces putting on an event in one of the most beautifully preserved, living pieces of history in the world.
