Every year we get asked "What are you going to do for New Year's Eve?" And since we don't want to be out late we have come up with the perfect answer to ring in the New Year at 7:00pm! Yes 7:00 pm. We did this last year and it' was so well recieved that we are bringing it back by popular demand! We think our little novel idea will become a popular repeat tradition. And no, we haven't gone barmey. We call it; A Big Ben Beatles New Year's Bash. Our unique British Bash will not only celebrate the Beatles with music by the jolly awesome BEATLE GUYS BAND, but also celebrate British New Year's eve traditions with a special scrummy UK food menu by Polito Catering and culminating with a few more Bits and Bobs, like the ringing of our own Big Ben Bell at 7:00pm our time, which is midnight in London. So both Big Bens will chime at the same time on each side of the pond. We even built our own 4X8' working Big Ben clock for the occasion! It's the bees knees! Then to finish the evening in tradition and style, all mates who wish, will join The Beatle Guys for a hearty Auld Lang Syne chorus. All this means you can have a great time ringing in 2017 and still be home if you want to get to Bedfordshire early, or use our celebration to jump start the rest of your evening's festivities. Either way, we're going to have a tickety-boo time.
For the buffet, Chef Brian with Creative Chef has concocted a spread that is sure to delight every bloke and birds taste buds, and usually includes items like; Cheese, Fruit & Crackers , Devils on Horseback (Blue cheese and almond stuffed dried fruits wrapped in bacon), Peel & Eat Shrimp, Queens Salad, Shepard's Pie, Bangers and Mash, Fish & Chips, Veggie Medley, and a fresh Fruit Pies. Beverages included in buffet: Iced Tea, Water, Coffee, & Hot Tea, and Ticket prices include admission, buffet, and one dinner drink ticket per person and one complimentary glass of Champagne for toasting the New Year. And besides our Big Ben clock and bell ringing we'll have all the New Year's party favors, decorations, hats, noise makers, etc...
