You need to book early for this event.

Please arrive for 7.30-9pm to eat as we will be holding the mass speed dating at 10pm which lasts for 30 minutes and then  the DJ will kick off the party from 10.30pm until 2am. The seated speed dating will take place before 10pm in a room behind where the big dance room is located. This will be for those who finish the meal early and would like something to do until 10pm before the mass speed dating and party.  For the seated speed dating we will set up a big circuit of smaller tables where members can join in and drop out as they wish. The mass speed dating at 10pm is conducted standing in a big circle and is just a brief ice-breaker offering a chance to chat to 15 members of the opposite sex before the DJ starts the party. There is a break just before Midnight when there will be a count down for to the start of 2016.

Dress Code

Dress for New Year's Eve we will allow smart jeans which we know the younger men prefer. However it would only be with smart shirt and shoes and a blazer type jacket. No t-shirts, sweat shirts or trainers on this special evening. It is very much 'Dress to Impress!'.
Ladies feel free to dress up as much as you like as it is a nice hotel venue so would not look out of place. See the New Year in with style!
