    London over the Xmas/New Year week - whats on?

    Hiya guys,


    I'm in London over the Xmas/New Year week.

    What dancing/Xmas balls are on? Any particular recomendations? (I see Twford on 23rd.... and Chiswick on 30th... big gap inbetween there....)


    Whats happening to the Greenwich ball this year? I'm not exaggerating when I say this - "last year was brilliant!.... my best event of the year!.... the music and rooms were unbelievably good... the venue just right.... on the river, what a view...."


    Whats happening with the Ealing ball this year? Last year's I remember there were a few issues - which Franck sorted out in a very professional manner.... The night itself was pretty cool and laid back... the nibbles on the tables were actually very good... one thing I remember.... I forgot to nick all the left over lychees at the end of the night tho!


    Cheers
    Martin


    PS:
    Last year, you guys helped me organise the week - at the last minute the week before!.... Lord knows how I got tickets for those events....


    PPS:
    Glad I'm sitting down - I'm never this organised normally - but this question has come to me in a blinding flash!... I'm finally organising myself - post Britroc

    Thanks Witty


    Whats the Ashton's one like tho? Is it really packed?... ticket only or not.... ie. Is it a more "chill out and look good at the end of year" kinda event - as opposed to space to dance etc? I've only been to ashtons once... it was busy... and people were telling me it can be 4 times more people there (Christ!...)

    Not really a critism of the place at all... I'd just like to know what to expect!


    Martin


    PS:
    Do you have links for the details/ application forms etc?

    I'm interested in this too - and who might be doing what. Trying to persuade my non-forum friend to come back from her Christmas sojourn early. She always says she has a cr@p new year, so shouldn't be difficult if there's something good on!

    Ummm. That'll be Franco. Franck an entirely different person, and has Sheena now to sort things out in a professional manner! (Not that I'm saying that Franck wouldn't have done things in a professional manner at all of course! )

    An evening of glamour? With a picture of Marc taking his clothes off

    Although the girls in the other picture are far too pretty to contend with, might as well stay at home.


    But on second thoughts, a whole room full of men in white shirts I'll be happy just to watch!

    Yes to the first two - and possibly the last one if my foot is giving me grief!

    Who/what is running the Ealing one? *contemplates the cost of taxi's home * Friend had better come!

    It's far too early to be thinking of buying Christmas & NYE tickets I will get a list together about mid November and will post on my list.

    In the meantime - there is Jon Brett's Glitter Ball end December and Ceroc Surrey always put on a good NYE party - hang on in there, I am sure we will be doing a poll next month.

    Franco's JiveTime NYE dance/party is possibly the best one in London though

    Would Slinky's be a Christmas party ?

    No idea when the tickets go on sale, but that's where I'll be too.

    Not if you're thinking of buying flights too.

    Maybe we could have 'Christmas events' thread? Then I could mention that the NI Christmas Charity event is on 9th Dec and should be a great evening!

    Ashtons last year was very busy, yes. Good, but busy.

    For some comments, see the thread "Ashtons Black and white do the aftermath" from last year.

    Although obviously, this year could be completely different

    Hope that helps!
