New Year’s Day Brunch – tickets still available and it’s cheaper than last year

Published by under Bar,Catering,Social

Brunch cooked by members of the General Committee, under the guidance and support of Martin Swindon & Mick Kilkelly, on New Year’s Day.

Mindful waistbands aren’t the only thing tight at this time of year we have reduced ticket prices from last year.

Tickets £7.50 per person (Children £4.50) on sale now behind the bar or from the Office.

We have five sittings for brunch:
11:00 – 11:30am
11:30 – 12:00pm
12:00 – 12:30pm
12:30 – 1:00pm
1:00 – 1:30pm

You’ll need to select your sitting when you buy your tickets. You are welcome to arrive at any time and we would encourage you to stay around afterwards but we will need you to vacate your table at the end of the sitting you have booked – this is so we can accommodate as many people who want to enjoy Brunch – this is a very popular event and a great way to start the New Year.

The brunch is a ticket-only event (the bar is open to all) and places are limited, please buy your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

The bar will be open serving Bucks Fizz, Bloody Mary and all your other favourites.

Howard joins us from the kitchen at Billy Hundred’s along the seafront and is employed directly by the club. Howard starts work today cleaning and organising the kitchen. The kitchen will remain closed until at least Thursday lunchtime – more details to follow, watch this space.

Working with Howard, we have big plans as to how we can transform the kitchen and the catering experience delivered by the club but please remember Rome wasn’t built in a day.
