Perfect Christmas Party

If ever there was a year to let our hair down and throw a party to eclipse all others, Christmas 2021 has our name on the guest list! Luxurious, exhilarating, and fully Covid-safe, Mercure Blackburn Dunkenhalgh Hotel and Spa is the perfect all-in-one party venue to celebrate the festive season in style

Whether sharing an intimate Christmas dinner for two, seasonally reconnecting with family, friends and colleagues, or rocking the dancefloor at a 400-strong party night, you’ll find festive dreams becoming reality the minute you enter the tree-lined drive, see the fairy-tale turrets, or descend the sweeping 18th century staircase.

The team have certainly been busy ensuring a real Christmas Cracker awaits! A brand new menu offers mouth-watering festive fayre for every party hungry for that back-on-the-menu celebration. Every party’s catered for with seasonally special afternoon teas, lunches and dinners throughout December, or be thoroughly spoiled by letting the hotel lift the weight from your shoulders on Christmas, Boxing, or New Year’s days themselves.

Then of course there are the Mercure Blackburn’s famous ‘Christmas Extravaganza’ and special themed party nights. Kicking off the party season in style from 19th November, raise a glass or three of prosecco before a delicious three-course meal with all the trimmings, with every diet catered for. Then who could resist giving your festive finery a whirl on the dancefloor, with top DJs and live entertainment?

The shining star on top of the tree is the hotel’s ballroom, one of the largest function rooms across the North West. Complete with huge dancefloor and stage, everyone’s invited, from couples upwards, to join in the fun among up to 440 guests – now there’s an instant party atmosphere, from Happy Hour into the small hours!

Treat your party to the red-carpet VIP experience, with your own private reception suite, bar, and pre-party canapes. Or with a wave of the wand, the whole ballroom can be exclusively hired for sizeable seasonal top-spec corporate entertaining or large and lavish personal parties – you can even bring your own entertainment!

And don’t worry, Cinderella, nothing need stop at midnight. Thanks to a £4.5 million refit, every single room has been stunningly finished and furnished to match, from sparkling party suites to comfortably stylish bedrooms. So take advantage of overnight offers and go from dancefloor to duvet in a few steps, with a hearty breakfast when you’re ready to surface, or dive into the hotel’s luxurious spa facilities with a festive mini-break or restorative spa stay.

But with places booking up faster than Rudolph shooting across the sky, make sure your party doesn’t miss out on great music, sumptuous food, and magical memories guaranteed to last well beyond the festive season!
