Ensuring 2012 gets off to a glamorous start, Stompin’ At The Savoy will return on New Year’s Eve for what promises to be an exclusive, decadent celebration.
The event will be taking place in the elegant The Savoy’s Lancaster Ballroom, which has hosted spectacular parties and famous guests such as Noël Coward, Marlene Dietrich, Fred Astaire, Sir Laurence Olivier, Marilyn Monroe, and Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Just 250 guests will have the chance to follow in these famous footsteps with a champagne reception and canapés in The River Room, followed by a sumptuous four-course dinner in the Lancaster Ballroom and a champagne toast at midnight whilst watching the fireworks over the Thames.
Entertainment will be provided by the Guy Barker Orchestra and a host of guest artists including soul singer Beverley Knight; Tony Christie, the lounge; jazz-pop singer Paloma Faith; and Buddy Greco, who in a career spanning more than six decades has worked with the Rat Pack and Benny Goodman and released 68 albums and over 100 singles.
The evening will be hosted by comedian and TV presenter Patrick Kielty and the orchestra will be led by Mercury Prize nominated trumpeter and band leader Guy Barker, who has worked with music legends such as Paul Weller, Sting, Sammy Davis Jnr, Liza Minelli and Frank Sinatra. Mark Emms, producer of Stompin’ At The Savoy said, "We believe we have created the ultimate New Year’s Eve experience, harking back to the decadent celebrations of the 1930s and 40s. The Savoy is a unique venue and their superb cuisine, combined with A-list artists and the Guy Barker Orchestra performing in such an intimate setting, make this truly special."
Stompin’ at The Savoy, produced by Three’s A Crowd Events, will take place at The Savoy on Saturday December 31. Tickets are £1000. Visit StompinAtTheSavoy.co.uk.
