Last night I was sat with well over 300 hundred diners, including a great many Walkabout and Bar Risa managers and head office staff, tucking into a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings watching a drag queen compere dressed in Xmas gear getting the audience into the Xmas spirit whilst Whams Last Christmas played over the PA system.
This wasn’t a surreal dream. It was the Highlight Christmas launch where staff and friends of the Highlight venues are invited to sample what’s in store for this years Xmas shows.
We arrived at the Highlight on Broad Street in Birmingham to be greeted by the aforementioned drag act and a staircase covered in snow and draped in Christmas decorations. A glass of mulled wine was offered to us by friendly staff dressed in festive white whilst a photo opportunity with a reindeer (not a real one!!) and the drag queen was available. We took to our white table cloth seating and had waitresses in attendance to take drink orders. Our Xmas dinners arrived shortly after whilst LMM DJ Ben McClaughlin entertained us with xmas songs and a close up magician strolled around the tables and our drag queen,Jackie Frost ,mingled with the crowds.
The stage show featured comedy and magic and was up to the high standards of the Highlight shows.
The after show disco presented by LLMs DJ Ben ,one of Broad Streets best,was superb.
A great night was had by all.
If you are looking to book your company or a bunch of friends into a Christmas party night then you would do well to look into the Highlight venues as the best value offer in the High Street. You can find details on the Highlight website and you will be pleased to see that Highlight venues are situated in nine major towns.
