Partner Highlight: The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel & Hadley's Orient Hotel 

17 May 2024

TSO are proud to have partnered with The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel and Hadley’s Orient Hotel for over 12 years. It really is the perfect match as their commitment to supporting the Tasmanian community echoes TSO’s values of connection and integrity.

TSO String Quartet Performance

Throughout our partnership, the Woolstore has become a home away from home for many visiting musicians, guest artists and conductors. The Woolstore reservations team always go out of their way to ensure guests are looked after. In the past as part of our partnership, we have been proud to support the opening of the Hadley’s Art Prize with some wonderful TSO ensemble performances in the surrounds of prize artworks. This year, our partnership has evolved to provide corporate hospitality to support the Woolstore team to connect, engage and thank their array of clients. This past week, we had the pleasure of hosting Woolstore and their guests at our Obscura 1 concert: Of Ice and Stars. The evening was complete with bespoke Obscura cocktail and an immersive concert experience.

"Obscura was a lot of fun! The convenience of ducking into the CBD for a drink or two at the Odeon, an hour of TSO power then home in time for tea was perfect. Highly recommended and the next two Obscura’s are already in my calendar!”
Scott Christie-Johnston, Woolstore's Group Manager - Sales & Marketing

Obscura Cocktail

Of course, a partnership works both ways, in April we were pleased to head along to the Woolstore as they celebrated the launch of the Wapping Room – a state of the art events and meeting venue. It was a splendid affair complete with life sized Tip Duck puppetry from Terrapin Puppet Theatre, ice cream from Van Diemens Land Creamery and a bevy of prizes up for grabs including TSO concert tickets.  Scott Christie-Johnston, Woolstore’s Group Manager – Sales & Marketing, was an expert MC (despite being provoked by a 6-foot Ibis puppet!).  The rooms were filled with many reputable Tasmanian businesses and charities, and it was a fantastic opportunity to network amongst the other members of the Woolstore/Hadley’s family.

Bravo to Woolstore and Hadley’s for a great event and we look forward to sharing another 12 plus years in partnership!
