The venue and date for the awards evening in 2014 has now been set. You will be pleased to know that we will be at The Brands Hatch Thistle Hotel located at, what can possibly be described to as our spiritual home, Brands Hatch, Fawkham, Kent. Those of you who need directions....
The hotel has great relaxation facilities, including a gym, pool, sauna, spa, and a steam room. There is a beauty treatment suite which will cost you extra for each treatment you have.
The date is Saturday 25th January 2014. You are urged to take care when booking your winter holidays as you really don't want to miss this one!
The title theme is Music & Motors. For the first time in our D&D history we are having a live band who will perform three sets with the usual dancing music played in between.
There will be two special guests hosting our event, the names of whom will be kept secret until the night itself. Suffice to say they are both familiar faces and well known to us and the motor racing world. Don't ask who they are, it's a secret and going to be a surprise.
The tickets will go on sale from 1st October 2013 at a cost of £47.50 per head. For this you will receive a three course meal; starting with warm soup, beef main course with roasted vegetables (or vegetarian/allergy option IF notified beforehand), followed by a surprise dessert. Each table will have two complimentary bottles of wine (one red and one white). Also with regard to bar prices, the best value bottled lager will be Stella Artois (£3.95).
See booking form below. It is similar in layout to previous years where the full names and dietary requirements of you and your guests will be required.
Dress code is strictly black tie & dinner suit for the men, long evening dress for the ladies. Please ensure you dress accordingly as inappropriate attire may result in admission being denied. Children under the age of 16 years will not be permitted.
Accommodation at the hotel has been negotiated at a special rate of £75 B&B for a standard double or twin room. There are a few Executive and Family rooms which will incur a £20 supplement. Please remember you are responsible for booking and paying for your rooms yourselves.
The hotel's telephone number, if you don't want to use the one on their website, is 01474 854900. The code to quote at the time of booking is BARC250114. You will also be able to book rooms either side of our booking date (Friday and Sunday nights) at the same discounted rate. The number of rooms allocated to us is limited and will be reserved on a first come first served basis.
Gook luck with the rest of your racing season and see you in January, if not before.
