EVENT: Christmas Party at the Jumeirah

Date: 15th December, 2016 Time: 06:00 pm - 09:00 pm
Christmas Party at the Jumeirah

The Christmas party was the third of our social events for 2016 – we held a Ramadan Holiday Party in July and our annual Gala dinner was held on 22 October.

This year the Christmas party was held at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower hotel in London's Knightsbridge. Guests enjoyed canapes and other delicacies from the Jumeirah's kitchens and were entertained by singer Claire Harper and pianist Bob Holloway. More than 20 local retailers and firms donated gifts to the prize raffle.

Photographs from the event can be seen on the Gallery Tab of this website.
