The Grim’s Dyke Hotel just launched their Christmas Season of Events. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to have your office party or something different to do with the family this Christmas, we have a wide variety of choices for you.
Our Christmas Entertainment this year includes disco evenings, magic shows and luxurious meals – for further details you can click here. Here’s an overview of just a few of the events you will find at the Grim’s Dyke Hotel this Christmas – I’m sure there’s something for everyone this year!
Gilbert & Sullivan Opera events
The Grim’s Dyke Opera Company perform Gilbert & Sullivan Operettas regularly in our beautiful Music Room. Indulge yourself in an evening that dates back to 1892, one that totally befits the history and spirit of the Grim’s Dyke mansion. At these black tie affairs (or smart suit, if you prefer), you’ll experience a fully-costumed performance, 3-course dinner with tea or coffee and petit fours.
Operettas being shown in December: The Pirates of Penzance will be shown on Sunday 6th December and Iolanthe on Sunday 20th December. Guests meet in the Reception Lobby or Library Bar at 7pm, with the Opera starting at 7.30pm. Priced at £92.50, this includes the event, bedroom and breakfast.
2-Course Supper with entertainment
If Operettas are not your thing, the Grim’s Dyke Hotel has other entertainment options available during December.
Guests arrive and meet in the Reception Lobby or Library Bar at 7pm, ready to enjoy the night’s entertainment at 7.30pm. Events include:
