The Committee of Noah's ARC are pleased to announce that for the 2nd 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 HUSSARS!.
...and what a great deal for such a celebrated hotel:
Your 2-night stay is set at £50pp 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).
* Note: Single occupancy of a double room is £70 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 10% off all bar prices during your stay (just show your Regimental ID (provided)), 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 seperated 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 Emma.
Friday 06 May 2016
The Friday night is going the be a German themed night which includes all those meals we all grew to enjoy whilst stationed in Germnay. This includes the likes of Braturst, Brockwurst, Currywurst all consumed whilst we are being entetained by the Oompah band once again so you can dance the night away,this has been achieved by the committee members working hard at getting what you have requested.
More details will be made available as the reunion draws closer.
Saturday 07 May 2016
The main evening of the reunion will run as it always has, why change what has worked for so long? It is hoped that the band will do the call inviting us to take our seats about 18.30 and the meal being served from about 19.00hrs (TBC).
The menu for the evening is yet to be discussed with the management of the Imperial Hotel and the Committee.
At some point it is hoped that the band will entertain us in their normal high standard way, followed a disco that will go on until approximately 1am.
During all this time the bars will be open, a 10% discount has been granted to Noah’s ARC for the reunion weekend, so lets make the most of the weekend and see if we can drink them dry once again.
Once we have more information the Committe will let you know.
NOTE: Thursday 5th May
Please note that, unlike 2015, The Imperial will be able to host us for Thursday (5th May) as well as for the weekend. You can make it a long break by booking in for all three days. If you want to add Thursday to your 2-night stay please book as above: 01253 623971
