Dan Gill

Daniel Gill is an expert in party planning, weddings, food & drink and the use of historic buildings as venues.

Daniel’s introduction to the wonderful world of food and drink was through his parents, who owned a Michelin starred restaurant near Leeds. Their friendships with luminaries such as Marco Pierre-White and Raymond Blanc meant that Daniel was immersed in everything to do with Hospitality from a very early age.

After finishing his education at Edinburgh University, Daniel went on to train in London and worked at locations as diverse as the Natural History Museum, No.10 & No.11 Downing Street, Lancaster House, Tower Bridge, V&A Museum, the Tower of London and Hampton Court Palace. All of this gave him a clear understanding of how to operate in sensitive spaces and how commercial potential should be handled alongside the core purpose of such spaces.

On returning to Leeds in 1998 he set up Dine, which runs venues, provides spectacular private parties (see http://www.dine.co.uk ) and has held contracts with organisations as diverse as English Heritage and The National Trust and owners of some of the UK’s most notable private houses.
