The Big Christmas Ukulele Party - Blackpool, 9 December
A fantastic way to get in the festive mood, our Big Christmas Ukulele Party promises fun, learning, music and bright lights! Based at the four star Hilton Hotel, on Saturday 9th December, the event begins with a workshop and festive "Big Strum" with Andy and Jerry from "The League Of Ukulele Gentlemen" for all at 2.30pm.
Next, something a bit special as outside the hotel, we’ll find HMS Blackpool and the 'Vintage 717' illuminated trams that we’ve specially chartered to take our party up and down the prom for a ukulele experience to remember.
We will then disembark our trams at Blackpool North Pier and make the five minute walk to"Illuminasia" The biggest indoor illuminations in the world! This will be accompanied by Mulled wine and Mince pies. (Honestly, this is seriously good - well worth seeing).
After we’ve been illuminated, promenaded in our private trams and been fortified with our Mulled wine and Mince pies, it is back to the hotel, where there’s time to spruce ourselves up before an evening glass of bubbly (on us), followed by an excellent four course gala Christmas dinner, provided to us by the Hilton chefs. There's wine on the tables too- again, part of the package!
Once our lovely Christmas meal is polished off, we’ll have an evening of music, with sets from "The League Of Ukulele Gentlemen" and we will then dance into the night with the astounding "Anything Goes Orchestra".
Every ticket holder will get a Christmas present from us which you will find at your designated dining table. This will be a lovely festive break with our usual crowd of super-friendly folk, mingling, making new friends, having laughs and playing some tunes together. Add in that exciting feeling of being in Blackpool you used to get as a kid – while all the time remaining comfortable in four star surroundings and private chartered trams. Lovely!
We have day tickets on sale at £90, including tutorial, mulled wine, mince pie, Big Strum & Singalong, private tram tour, admission to "Illuminasia", welcome bubbly, wine on tables, a Christmas gift, four course meal and an evening’s entertainment (UNTIL LATE!). Or, for £279 based on two sharing on a full board basis at the four star Hilton, including a ticket each too. Or a single on the same basis for £176.00.
A perfect festive mini-break packed with ukulele fun! Also makes a great Uke Club Christmas Outing!
*** Single Rooms… The Hilton doesn’t have any. If you book early and direct with them, you can get a reasonable rate on a double or twin which makes the price not too bad – when you buy a day ticket too. There are also many hotels nearby for less money (and less stars!).
The day ticket doesn’t give you bed and breakfast at the Hilton, but does give you access to EVERYTHING else.
We can arrange an extra night on the Friday if you wish – but please contact US, not the hotel – as we need to co-ordinate the booking. If you book Friday with the hotel, you’ll have to move rooms on the Saturday! So, come to us. We don’t make money on the hotel rooms – so it won’t cost extra!***
