Greatdays Travel Group has added several new group-friendly lunch events to its collection of trips and tours, called Cruise the World Musical.

Available to book at hotels in Essex, Cheshire, Lancashire, Warwickshire and Bristol on various dates throughout 2017, the lunch includes entertainment, a world music quiz and a three course meal, plus tea and coffee.

Each of the featured hotels will be decked out to reflect the glamour of old steam ships; groups heading to a lunch will ‘climb aboard’ the SS Greatdays and be accompanied by a ‘crew’.

Entertainment will be led by a musical captain and a first officer who will ‘steer’ the audience from country to country with well-known songs symbolic of each different culture – singing along is welcome.

Groups are also encouraged to dress up for the occasion; choose from black tie, evening wear, nautical costumes or pirates. There’s a prize for the best dressed.

A world music quiz and a raffle are also to be expected.

A typical Cruise the World Musical Lunch begins at 10.45am with a welcome tea and coffee, and finishes at 3pm after a finale singalong. Minimum group size for bookings is typically from around 15-20 people upwards.

Stay over night

The Nailcote Hall Hotel in Warwickshire, the Mercure Dunkenhalgh Hotel & Spa in Lancashire and the Hallmark Hotel London Chigwell Prince Regent in Essex are among those venues that host Cruise the Musical Lunches.

Group travel organisers who’d like to prolong a stay at one of the featured hotels can do so; overnight prices are available on request.
