What to expect at the Christmas Masquerade Ball in Manchester

Kickstart your night of masked revelry with a VIP welcome from our costumed performers. There’s a sparkling glass of Prosecco ready for you.

All-inclusive beer, wine and soft drinks keep the atmosphere buzzing while you indulge in a delicious 3-course candlelit dinner.

During dinner, a live singer serenades you with timeless classics and, between courses, costumed performers entertain you with their skillful dance moves.

Some parties fizzle out after dinner… but this is Manchester, and our Christmas Masquerade Ball is only just beginning.

A live party band takes to the stage and sets the tempo for dancing late into the night. Meanwhile, professional croupiers are handing out free just-for-fun casino chips at the Blackjack and roulette tables.

The dress code

It’s all about the masks. Do wear one — half-faced, obviously, otherwise dinner may be an issue. Simple and elegant or intricate and elaborate. Choose whichever style you like. 

As for the rest of your outfit… Well, we love it when our guests dress up, although if a full-on Venetian costume is not your thing, black tie and evening wear will do nicely.

 

"Thank you to Ryan and all at West End Events for a fabulous Christmas party. We really enjoyed it - everyone embraced the theme, the atmosphere was fantastic and we especially loved the band and brilliant dancers. Thank you"

About the event

Yes, the main party room is shared. It’s where all the live music, singing and entertainment happens.

Will we have our own table?

Is there a dress code? 

There is no dress code. However, it’s a masquerade ball, so it’s all about grandeur and elegance… and remember, everyone will be wearing a mask.

The menu

Will the hotel cater for different dietary requirements? 

Yes they will. Once you’ve booked, we’ll send you a function sheet. Use this to let us know the names and dietary requirements of any guests. We’ll inform the chef so each person is catered for appropriately.

The only exception to this is Kosher food. It can’t be prepared at the hotel and comes via a separate caterer, so it incurs an additional cost. Call us on 020 7183 3821 and we’ll talk you through it.

Booking and admin

How much is the deposit? And when is it due?

To secure your booking, we’ll need a deposit of £45 + VAT per guest at the time of booking. The balance will be due 6 weeks (42 days) before the event.

Can I add additional guests later?

We’ll be as flexible as possible. Please let us know about any changes before 1st November and we’ll do our best to accommodate them. Provided there is availability, we’ll add to your booking —although please bear in mind, we cannot guarantee this.

If you want to add guests, contact us on 020 7183 3821 or email [email protected]. If there’s availability for extra guests, full payment will be required in order to secure the booking.

What’s the minimum and maximum number of guests I can book for?

The minimum number is 8 people. The maximum number for this event is 320.

The Venue

Is there parking near the venue?

There are 2 NCP car parks, both a few minutes walk from the hotel.

  • Great Northern NCP, Watson Street, Manchester M3 4EE
  • Q-Parks, First Street Car Park, Manchester M15 4FN (off Medlock Street)

What about public transport?

The Edwardian is a couple of minutes away from St Peter’s Square tram stop.

Manchester Piccadilly Station and Manchester Victoria Station are also close by.

Is there disabled access?

All our hotels have disabled access.

Is there a cloakroom? Will I be able to leave my suitcase there?

Yes, the cloakrooms at all our party locations are free. If you have larger luggage items, there’s a free concierge service. Leave your luggage with them and they’ll look after it securely while you’re at the event.

Can I stay at the hotel?
