Here’s a date for your diary – Thursday, December 14.
It’s the eagerly-awaited Birmingham Press Club Christmas Lunch. And this year the function will be held at Birmingham Hippodrome’s Circle Restaurant, which is the proud holder of the AA Rosette, awarded for culinary excellence.
Press Club chairman Llewela Bailey said: “Christmas lunch is always one of the social highlights of our year. It’s a real fun occasion – and this time will be no exception.”
Guests will have exclusive use of the restaurant and upon a red-carpet arrival (via the main doors in Hurst Street) will receive a welcoming drink – either a glass of prosecco or a bottle of beer.
A two- course meal will be accompanied by a 1/3 of a bottle of wine per person.
Lunch will be served at 12.45 pm, preceded by a drinks reception at 12 noon. The event is expected to finish at 4.45 pm but, from 5 pm onwards, guests will have exclusive use of the Stalls Foyer bar on a pay-as-you-go basis to continue festivities.
Tickets are priced at £44 each, including VAT.
