Wrap up of ANZAC Day 2021

ANZAC Day allows us to honour those who died or fought in wars before us, and so we were delighted to be able to share this special day with many familiar faces in the Club this year. For a short time we were caught off-guard by the volume of people visiting the Club, as many other places were not open, but we will be well and truly ready in 2022.

EVENTS ARE BACK!

It’s been fantastic to see plenty of familiar faces back in the Club, enjoying our wonderful events and showing some festive spirit! Un piano qui chante was an absolutely stunning evening starring classical pianist Andrew Rumsey and clarinetist Thomas Azoury. Guests were so impressed we hope to welcome them back to Cellos very soon! Continuing with the French theme, we are participating in French Fest on Thursday 15 July, with ‘Paris After Dark’ - a French Cabaret Dinner Show. Jot this event down on your calendar and book a hotel room - it promises to be a spectacular show!

THIS MONTH'S SHOWSTOPPER!

FRENCH FESTIVAL DINNER SHOW - UN PIANO QUI CHANTE...‘A Piano That Sings’ It’s less than a week to go until this fabulous evening in Cellos. However, we need your support! A minimum number of bookings are required to make wonderful new initiatives, like this event, viable for the Club. Please help spread the word and book a table, share this newsletter with your friends or like and share our Facebook posts – it all helps in welcoming new faces to our stunning Club and Grand Dining Room. In a late change to the line up, renowned Australian classical pianist Andrew Rumsey, will now be playing with special guest clarinetist and pianist, Thomas Azoury, performing music of some of the most famous classical composers of all time.

BOARDROOM BANTER

The New Year comes with new challenges and also new opportunities. Borders may be closed but the Club and Hotel are still open for business, so please call in and see us. This is a quick summary of what is happening at your Club: The first point of difference you will notice when entering the Club is the ‘new-look’ foyer. For the first time in many years, a new classical colour scheme has replaced the mustard colour and sky blue. We have uncluttered the foyer, giving Members and Guests a more welcoming arrival experience and we have mixed up the furniture a bit. Let us know what you think. This work has been completely undertaken by the in-house Management Team and other staff Members. Well done to all !

BOARDROOM BANTER

We are almost there; saying good riddance to 2020, that is! Looking back over this year, it really was the year for firsts; the first time our trade had been so severely affected by a virus, the first time we had to close the whole Club down, albeit for a short time, and the first time since the 1940’s that the whole world literally stopped and closed up shop. However, we have seen a number of positive firsts too. Please read about them in Team Talk on the following page. It takes more than this to slow us down! Club Chat, December 2020

WELCOME BACK!

Dear Members, Firstly, thank you for all the well-wishes we have received and for your patience whilst the Club was temporarily closed. This was a very unusual time for all concerned. We reopened the Lounge on the 1st of June for lunch from Monday to Friday. It has been such a pleasure to see our valued Members returning. We have created a new menu with daily specials for you to enjoy, along with new service procedures in our COVID-Safe dining area.
