Event description


An exclusive event for members of The Senior Section and their Leaders, to mark the end of our Spectacular year

After walking the red carpet, there will be a drink for each guest on arrival (non-alcoholic, of course). Waiters will serve canapés and mini meals throughout the night, and there will be a jazz band and a variety of fabulous entertainment - think vintage photo booths, giant movie props, movie snacks, plus maybe a few movie star lookalikes… Dress code is ‘red carpet ready’!


Earlybird: £15.00

General Admission: £17.00

Earlybird tickets will close on Friday 15 July 2016.


Towering above the Manchester skyline, with its distinctive clock tower and striking Victorian architecture, The Palace Hotel is an iconic and spectacular building - and where better to celebrate 100 years of The Senior Section!
