Motown
Christmas Party

It’s all about the music and dancing

Get ready to hit the dance floor. The Motown Christmas Party is all about the music… Not forgetting the 3-course dinner, casino tables and glitter bar, of course.

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.

The Motown Christmas Party is organised for you at top quality city-centre hotels in London and Manchester. There are excellent transport links — or just stay put, relax and book a room at the 4-star venue.

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. The band is on stage, and it’s time for the reason you’re here — fabulous music.

Here, check out the band. 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.

Respect? Hell, yeah!

As you’re served a delicious 3-course dinner, the musical tempo is rolled back to mellow while the wine and conversation flow.

Dinner has been enjoyed… and the evening has just begun. This is your chance to shine on the dance floor — and once on it, you’ll struggle to get off again.

If you can drag yourself away, 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.

"Our firm loved the venue and the entertainment was absolutely brilliant! We thoroughly enjoyed our night out! The planning of this event could not have gone any more smoothly. Ryan at West End Events was an absolute star at helping us make all the arrangements for our party of 20 to attend the Skyball event in London! Cannot thank Ryan enough for his patience and advice!"

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 that each person is catered for appropriately.

The only exception to this is Kosher food. This cannot be prepared at the hotel, it comes via a separate caterer. Call us on 020 7183 3821 and we’ll talk you through it.
