Feasts and festivities in York at The Grand’s Christmas Gala Ball

The Grand Hotel in York is hosting the most lavishly chic party of the festive season this Christmas with its Gala Ball taking place on Friday 14 December.

The luxurious five-star hotel emulates the splendour of its Edwardian heyday, alluring visitors with its rich history and charming paradox of quaint grandeur. The building, originally constructed by North Eastern Railway (NER) to be a ‘Palace for Business’, will this Christmas be transformed to become a ‘Palace of Panache’, the perfect platform to host a festive party.

The Grand’s Christmas Gala Ball is set to be the most dazzling date in the calendar this winter. Held in the stunning Grand Boardroom with its ornate, authentic interior, guests will be dressed to impress in black tie and ball gowns and ready for an evening of exquisite food and mesmerising entertainment.

It is an occasion designed to celebrate and reward your colleagues this Christmas, or to sit back and enjoy being wined and dined with friends. The Grand has meticulously put together the programme of the night to ensure a wide-reaching appeal of opulence and merriment.

The evening will begin with a Champagne and canapé reception before sitting down for a sumptuous dining experience with a four-course dinner crafted by executive chef, Craig Atchinson and his experienced team. With Levern Farm duck to start, chestnut velouté to follow, and a variation of tradition for the main course, guests will be served a Yorkshire turkey and cranberry parcel with all the trimmings. A fruity treat with a festive twist will see a clementine posset with red fruit compote and cinnamon palmiers served for dessert, topped off with coffee and petit fours to end the fiesta of flavours.

A spectacle of live music and entertainment will follow, allowing you to dance the night away and embrace the festive spirit with your colleagues, family or friends.

Tickets cost just £65.00pp and include a Champagne and canapé reception, four-course festive feast, coffee and petit fours, live music and entertainment.
