Alpine Ball

 

This is a post I should have written before Christmas, but such is life!

The Alpine Ball at Antree Race Course holds a themed Christmas party every year, in 2015 we enjoyed the ‘Big Band’ theme (my fav) and in 2016 it was the Alpine Ball. Both occasions were the perfect time to get dressed up and enjoy the Christmas cheer.

The Dress

Initially I wanted to wear a long furry coat but did not leave myself enough time to find one, so ended up getting a Christmas candy swing dress. I really like this and know that I will wear it in the future so it’s a good purchase.

Food

For the price of 50 pounds pp you got food too, a full three course meal which was yummy. The three courses consisted of  a choice three starters, three mains and three desserts. All of which were very nice – I didn’t order all 9 but I tried my friends dishes!

The drinks were quite expensive but what do you expect from a race course.  Although I did get a a double vodka and orange for the price of a double! You also get a free glass of orange or champagne on arrival.

Entertainment

There is entertainment throughout the event from the decoration on arrival and dances, singers and band to the live singing during the meal on the main stage.

There’s also a photographer available if you and your group want a photo shoot. Plus there’s indoor dodgems which was the selling point for most of my friends.

Not sure what the theme will be next year but we will definitely be attending. Hope to see you there!
