Candlelight Christmas at Hagley Hall
Friday 19th & Saturday 20th December 2014
We are pleased to announce that we will again be holding our popular Christmas Candlelight Dinners
The evening starts with a reception drink before guests move through to the Saloon for a short concerto of seasonal music. This year the entertainment will be provided again by Brief Encounter – returning by popular demand!
Comprising piano, violin and cello, the trio is a highly versatile ensemble, lending itself equally well to music from a wide range of styles.
The concerto is followed by a festive four-course meal in the Long Gallery, again provided by award-winning chef, Anthony Morgan, and his team.
Afterwards guests return to the Saloon to join in the rousing singing of carols, accompanied by the Brief Encounter Trio, before departing full of festive spirits.
The cost is £60 per person inc vat with up to 10 guests per table. Smaller numbers join together to make tables of 10.
Larger parties can take advantage of the exclusive Crimson Dining Room which can be hired for between 20 and 28 guests, with your own dedicated service team, for a small additional supplement.
Dress code is black tie with cocktail or long for ladies, smart lounge suit is acceptable.
Arrival from 7pm, carriages approx 11pm
