The Big Christmas Ukulele Party - Blackpool, 8 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 Blackpool Grand Hotel (this has recently changed hands - was the Hilton!), on Saturday 8th December, the event begins with a "Big Strum" for all at 2.30pm.
After mulled wine and mince pies and a workshop for all, we move onto something a bit special! 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.
After boarding our homeward bound tram, it is back to the hotel, where we'll enjoy a new addition to this event, a Christmas Cabaret of music, magic and comedy.
After time to get changed, you can join us for 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 "Ukulele Uff Trio".
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 £95, including tutorial, mulled wine, mince pie, Big Strum & Singalong, private tram tour, Christmas Cabaret, welcome bubbly, wine on tables, four course meal and an evening’s entertainment (UNTIL LATE!). Or, for £285 based on two sharing on a full board basis at the four star Hilton, including a ticket each too.
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 Blackpool Grand, but does give you access to EVERYTHING else.
We can arrange an extra night on the Thursday, Friday or Sunday if you wish – but please book through 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.
