Annual Reunion

For the third consecutive year the reunion is to be
held at The Imperial Hotel, Blackpool.

The Committee of Noah's ARC are pleased to announce that for the 3rd year the location for our Annual Reunion is to be the Imperial Hotel, Blackpool. The Imperial is the most imposing of all Blackpool promenade hotels, with its 160 bedrooms, function rooms for over 300 guests, and car parking for 150 cars, we can highly recommend this hotel to you.

Long used as a major conference centre by the Conservative Party, the Labour Party and Trades Unions, the hotel now prepares to host Noah's ARC!

Your 3-night stay is set at £55.00 per person per night in a standard room with any additional nights (Dinner, Bed & Breakfast) at the same rate. Remember that guests booked into the hotel receive inclusive admission to our functions - buffet Friday and Gala Dinner, Saturday. Which means effectively, that you get Dinner, Bed & Breakfast, all of the hotel's facilities, and free car parking inclusive (non-guests pay £3.50 to park).

The hotel has stated that payment for the reunion will be required 28 day prior to the event. However I have asked that they call everyone beforehand to make sure that individuals are happy for their payment to be taken. This will be your final opportunity to cancel with no financial loss to yourself.

* Note: Single occupancy of a double room is £80 per person per night

If you want to attend an event without accommodation there is a charge of £20 per person per event (* see below for booking details), making a stay at The Imperial the real value solution, and one that we urge you to take advantage of.

Add to this the concessionary discount of 15% off all bar prices during your stay, at any bar in the hotel, and your Committee has no hesitation in recommending the hotel to you. All functions will use tables of 10 or 12, making it highly social with no tables for 2 or 4 separated from the main area. :)

Our entertainment plan has not yet been finalised but you are assured (as you have come to experience) that it will rise to the occasion, we may once again see our Regimental Band making a contribution.

Booking: All bookings for accommodation as above must be made with the Hotel and not via Noah's ARC. If you don't have a booking (with or without accommodation) you won't be admitted. Please book early and quote "Noah's ARC" when booking. Tel: 01253 623971. Do not select '2', just let it auto-redirect to Hotel. Any problems, ask for Portia.

Silent Auction / Support

The silent auction will commence from Saturday morning through until Saturday at 9pm when the winners will be announced. We have several items on the night donated by members of Noah's ARC and by some prestigious Football Clubs (listed below).

To date two clubs have offered their generous support to Noah's ARC by donating prizes for the silent auction they are Middlesbrough Football Club and Manchester United Football Club. I and all members of Noah's ARC would personally like to thank both clubs for their support.
