Testimonial from Pulse Films
"Frimley Lodge Park was an ideal location for our filming day. We had everything we needed to hand (plus blessed with good weather) and the staff were more than helpful and were incredibly knowledgeable about the park. It really did make my day a lot easier even though we were filming a mass Pet audition" so thank you to all the staff who helped.
Frimley Lodge Park from Kiri Kiritharan
We hired Frimley Lodge Park during the May Bank Holiday weekend for a gathering of nearly 80 people. We couldn't have asked for better venue and the Team at Surrey Heath Borough Council specially Nicola, Joanna, Bethany and Steve were fantastic and helped us immensly to make the event a success.
We had two back to back events over the May Bank Holiday Weekend. We hired the Private BBQ area and Cricket Pitch and it was just fantanstic. Every one who turned for the event enjoyed the wonderful venue, atmosphere and couldn't have asked for a better day out. This is the only Park that we found where you could have a BBQ, play Cricket and still entertain whole family including kids.
We must also mention the Pistachio Cafe and the friendly team who were just wonderful and sell some fantanstic range Ice Cream.
We thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and wish to thank every one who helped us to make it a memorable weekend.
