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.
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.
