Post-Christmas industry party, ‘Hospitality Rocks’ returns for 2018

Catering company Smart Group has announced that its annual post-Christmas party for the hospitality and events industry, ‘Hospitality Rocks’ will be returning to Battersea Evolution on 12 January, to raise funds for The Springboard Charity and Hospitality Action.

Providing hospitality and events staff working over the festive period an opportunity “to celebrate their own Christmas party in style,” the Après-Ski themed event comprises a Champagne reception, three-course dinner and evening entertainment.

As well as dancers, acrobats, and a live DJ, there will also be a casino, dodgem cars, and the chance to sing onstage with a live rock band.

Keeping with the theme, Battersea Evolution (Battersea Park) will be transformed into an Alpine lodge fully equipped with a fire, twenty-foot Christmas trees and real Gondola ski lifts suspended from the ceiling.

Smart Group chief executive, Greg Lawson, said: “I want to thank all of the industry’s support earlier this year when we launched this amazing event; it is the chance for us to finally all get together to celebrate, and boy did we! Yet again we will be offering an extraordinary product to our friends in the industry at mate’s rates.”

Available to all staff across the hospitality, catering and events industry, tickets cost £70 per person with an “exclusive treat” available for those who attended last year.
