Hi Chloe, I just wanted to say what a fantastic evening we had on Saturday (15/12). Everything was spot on from the moment we arrived. The lady on stilts was very welcoming, and was great to have rails for our coats. The ladies handing out the welcome drinks was polite and cheery. The staff who were serving the meals were all smart and looked like they wanted to be there. The food was well presented and tasted lovely. The DJ/entertainer guy (sorry can’t remember his name) was superb, great magic tricks, singer and much more. Overall it was one of the best Christmas parties I/we have attended. Hats off to all involved.
