Mercure Piccadilly, Manchester
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 is right in the heart of Manchester. It’s at The Mercure next to Piccadilly Gardens. There are excellent transport links — or just stay put, relax and book a comfortable room at the 4-star hotel.
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 unlimited drinks and the conversations flow.
Dinner has been enjoyed… and the tempo rises as our on-stage singer is joined by the full band. This is your chance to shine on the dance floor — and once you’re on it, you’ll struggle to get off again.
Here, check out the band from one of our London parties. Clear a space. You’ll probably want to get up and dance.
*Video shows a 10-piece set up. We’ll have a 6-piece band.
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.
And don’t forget the photo booth. Those photos will remind you of the best Christmas party choice you’ve ever made.
