VIP PARTY 2016 – A trip back to the 80’s!
When: Friday 11th November
Where: Manor House in Chester including overnight stay.
The VIP Party for 2016 was one we’ll never forget! We decided to go 80’s style and fancy dress was mandatory! Everyone looked amazing, very colourful with a lot of time and effort spent on being a star for a night!
Guests were treated to a drinks reception of 80’s classic cocktails before our very own George Michael made his entrance into the room to wow his adoring fans! The crowd went wild as he sang hits from back in the day.
After we dragged ladies off of George it was time for some bingo fun! VIPs were treated to two cash games along with a prize game which including an iPad and Michael Kors goodies. It was great to see the tension in the room and the winner’s reactions when they won!
All guests were treated to a sit down buffet meal whilst George came back for another stint of whipping the crowd into a frenzy! After dinner there were deserts along with a sweetie table filled with mouthfuls of nostalgia!
After dinner it was time to hit the dance floor. There were handbags to dance around whilst the DJ played classics that everyone knew. VIPs had so much fun busting a move, and if they weren’t dancing they were having their pictures taken in the photo booth which was set up with loads of props!
Yet another fantastic party and only made possible by the great guests we had…they’re becoming legendary!
Here's a few quotes from our lovely VIPs:
Fantastic night! I enjoyed every bit of it from the warm welcome and hugs we got as soon as we stepped down the stairs of that beautiful Manor House, the cocktails, seeing everyone dressed up in tutu's, fluffy pinks, karate outfits , silly wigs (I can't remember those in the 80's but then I have a short memory:) , the caricature artist who captured my chubby cheeks just right, meeting up with members we had met at the Take That event a couple of years ago, and the couple I recently had a great time in Marbella with, the 'normal' game of bingo (hope the hotel managed to get the ink out of the pure white table cloths!), the prizes were great - my friend won 3 times and I was a bit peeved that I didn't win the mini IPad as I've wanted one for ages, the music was great - couldn't sit still for long and the George Michael look-a-like (whatever!). Hard to remember much else after about 10ish as someone was pouring white wine down my throat but I do remember a few of us ended up in my room with even more drinks and laughing about until after 3.
Of course, the success of the night was down to you, Nicola and Mandy - great trio, great organising, great communication, and great fun to be with. Thank you all so much!
I thought it was a fantastic night and how you all were so good on making it a night to remember my favourite thing was the gorge Michael singer and the disco and the photo booth so thank you for a night to remember
We would like to say a HUGE thank you to organisers of the event (and personally to you, Nicola and Mandy) for such an amazing night on Friday. The party was absolutely brilliant!
With so many highlights to choose from it's hard to pick just one favourite, including: being able to attend such a stunning, picturesque and amazing venue, the great 80's theme and all the decoration and costumes, meeting some lovely people, the fun of the bingo games with the dabbers and the excitement of winning some great prizes, the DJ and the dance floor with some great music, great food, the free bar, and such a great atmosphere with lots of fun and laughter with everybody continuously enjoying themselves. We really were all made to feel like VIP's with proper red carpet treatment from start to finish.
If we had to pick just one favourite, then the highlight of the night has got to be the George Michael singer, getting everybody started off in the party mood after dinner. With everybody up dancing around the tables and joining in with the singing, it was just what was needed to kick the party into full swing!
We had such an amazing time, and will certainly look back on the night with a smile. Looking forward to seeing the photos, and hoping there aren't too many embarrassing ones after the alcohol had set in (haha)!
A huge thank you again to all of you, and here's hoping that we are privileged enough to attend a similar event again in the future. You could certainly count us in :-)
Thank you for a fantastic 80's night! Organisers of the event really know how to put on a party a great time had by all. You and the girls were great hosts. Once again Thank you!
Nicola and mark, well done for all your hard work, what a night! Absolutely brilliant, I just feel my feet are getting back to normal, great fun night THANK YOU xx
