This year the intoxicating energy of Manhattan comes to The NEC – from the bright lights of Broadway to the fun and fast paced Times Square night life and breathtaking entertainment.

As you approach the glistening, iconic NEC the anticipation of the night ahead reaches new heights. Leave the crisp winter’s night behind and step inside into the warmth where the instant energy of Manhattan’s glamour grabs you!As you leave your coat at the Broadway ticket office, you make your way towards the bright lights of NEW YORK, NEW YORK. The skyline towers overhead amongst a sparkling sea of dazzling mirror balls as beams of light dance around the room.The bars exude class and infectious energy, enticing you in to absorb the electric atmosphere. You recognise upbeat tones of well-known classics and funky beats of modern party tunes as carefree conversation buzzes around the venue.

As you begin to make your way around the venue, sampling canapés and collecting friends and colleagues along the way, the tempo of the evening momentarily changes pace as impromptu bursts of entertainment light up the podiums and the night starts to show its real character! In the main room, the imposing Manhattan bars serve an assortment of drinks from chilled beers to crisp gin and tonics while professional cocktail men design iconic cocktails… 

Manhattans and New York sours are the toast of the evening as you relax and soak up the spirited ambiance of a Christmas party New York style!As you are guided in to take your seats for a superb three course feast, the vibrant stage comes to life and you are treated to an evening of exhilarating entertainment! World-class aerial entertainers perform the impossible while professional dance troops and high pole balancing acts fill the floor.

As dinner comes to a close, the dance floor instantly fills, casino tables open, fairground stalls begin to ply their trade and dodgems begin to whirr! While some take coffee and chocolates in a quieter area, the dance floor beckons for those disco bunnies with boundless energy and whose night is still young!As midnight approaches breakfast rolls are served against the vista of twinkling lights and inspiring scenery. The night has been a true party masterpiece – one that will be talked about well into the New Year…
