After slipping on the hi-tech ‘twinkling dance floor’ and breaking her elbow, a woman is suing an award-winning wedding venue for £150,000.

Cara Donovan, 35, alleges that employees at Leez Priory failed to prevent customers from spilling beverages on the LED-lit laminated plastic floor, as the manufacturer suggested.

She claims that after she married Lee Pierson, tables were put towards the edge of the floor to encourage people to dance and drink, and that when individuals spilled liquor on the ‘very slippery’ surface, employees neglected to clean it up.
Mrs Donovan, a mother of two, has had three procedures since her fall in September 2018 and is unable to return to work as a special needs teacher.

She is suing Country Home Weddings Ltd, the company that owns and operates the 16th century Tudor manor house, which was formerly named Best UK Wedding Venue by magazine readers.
The dance floor was created in the mansion’s underground, surrounded by 40 acres of parkland in Great Leighs, Essex.

‘During the evening, visitors would come on to the dance floor — either to cross it or to dance — holding glasses of drink and occasionally spilling drink,’ said her barrister Philip Goddard.

Staff allegedly failed to prevent customers from spilling beverages on the LED-lit laminated plastic floor, as the manufacturer suggested.

She claims that her injuries has made it difficult for her to write, drive, use a keyboard, or operate any two-handed apparatus.

“The dance floor became wet with patches of spilt drink. Its underfloor lights made it difficult for those on the dance floor to see spilt liquid on the surface.

“At about 10:00 pm, the claimant went to dance. She slipped in the spilt drink, fell and fractured her right, dominant, arm.”
He said the injury hampered her ability to write, drive, use a keyboard or use any two-handed machinery.’

The firm’s defence to the action was not available in court papers, and Mrs Donovan’s claims have not yet been tested in evidence by a judge
