Hogmanay Gala Ball
The most sophisticated and glamorous black-tie Hogmanay celebration in Edinburgh.
Champagne and canapés followed by a stunning four-course menu created by our award-winning executive chef, Jeff Bland, accompanied by the finest wines and entertainment.
The evening will commence to the sounds of the Pipes and Drums of the Royal Burgh of Stirling, offering a dramatic start to the evening celebrations. Cocktails will be served in the Holyrood Suite where the elegant trio ‘Le Swing’ will perform Rat Pack and Michael Bublé favourites.
A grand celebration will follow in the Sir Walter Scott Suite where dinner will be served accompanied by the very best of Scottish entertainment. The skirl of pipes and the colour and grace of some of the world’s top Highland Dancers will perform the famous Sword Dance and Highland Fling, followed by dancing to one of the best ceilidh bands in the country. The band and dancers will offer clear instructions to allow even the most inexperienced guests take to the floor.
The Bells of 2014 will be ushered in to the sounds of our pipes and drums when our ceilidh musicians will lead you in a traditional ‘Auld Lang Syne’ and through into the wee small hours.
