It’s all about the music and dancing

OK, back to the music. The Motown Christmas party features a breathtaking, live 6-piece Motown tribute band. The evening is a life-affirming celebration of classic hits which resonate across every generation.

Expect doo-wop vocals, funky backbeats and brilliant live performances of the greatest music ever written. Martha Reeves, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson…

Everyone knows the songs, and nobody can resist dancing to them.

Dance the whole night away because the Motown Christmas Party takes place in London’s city centre. The Leonardo Royal Hotel, London City has excellent transport links — or just stay put, relax and book a comfortable room at the 4-star hotel.

What to expect at the Motown themed Christmas party

Kick off your Motown Christmas with a VIP entrance on the red carpet. There’s a glass of Prosecco waiting for you.

You’ll have plenty of time for photos before the doors open to a spectacular Motown-themed event space.

As you’re served a delicious 3-course dinner, our fabulous live singer entertains you with Motown classics, keeping things mellow while the all-inclusive drinks and the conversations flow.

Dinner has been enjoyed… and the evening has just begun. Our on-stage singer is joined by the full band, and this is your chance to shine on the dance floor. Once you’re on it, you’ll struggle to get off again.

Here, check out the band. Clear a space. You’ll probably want to get up and dance.

Respect? Hell, yeah!

If you can drag yourself away from the dance floor, check out the casino tables and try your luck at blackjack and roulette. Or you can visit the glitter bar where professional face painters will add extra sparkle to your evening.

"For the second year in a row we booked our work Christmas party with West End Events, and they delivered once again! Another fantastic party, so well organised and executed, friendly staff on hand all evening, and a great venue with excellent entertainment. Genuinely couldn't fault a thing, and hope to use them again for next year's festive celebrations! "
