The Vieux Carre Jazzmen's 1920's Fancy Dress Christmas Party at Dissington Hall

Following Dissington Hall event for your information. 

Best wishes, 
Brian Bennett (band leader)   

Just to let you know about The Vieux Carre Jazzmen's Christmas Party at Dissington Hall, Dalton, Ponteland. 
It will be a 1920's themed 'Prohibition Party' with guests invited to dress in 20's style - think Al Capone type gangsters for the men, flappers and molls for the ladies - fancy dress is entirely optional, of course. 
There will be a superb 3-course Christmas Dinner followed by the popular music of the 1920's played by The Vieux Carre Jazzmen. 

Date: FRIDAY 17 DECEMBER, 2010
Showtime: 7.15 - 11.30pm
Tickets: £25 

The evening will be very popular so book early to avoid disappointment - call me on 0191 252 9429 or 07710 528413 or 'e' me. 
Remember, you can bring Pearl she's a darn nice girl, but don't bring Lulu!
