Christmas is by far and away my favourite time of year and nothing excites me more than a fabulous Christmas party. The food, the booze, the sequins, its just the thing to induce some seasonal merriment into your year. In Korea the Christmas party hasn’t really taken off in the way it has back home, where let’s face it they are practically mandatory at this point. However luckily for us the BCCK is hosting their Christmas Lunch on December 2nd at the Four Seasons Hotel. The lunch which is from 11:30-3:00pm, cost 165,000 per person, or a cool 1.6 million for a table of ten. So feel free to bring a few friends.
The luncheon will begin with a champagne reception before moving on to tradition Christmas lunch, then carolling and a chance to dance when DJ Fenner hits the Decks. The final menu is a bit of surprise but expect at least four courses and plenty of turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce along with other British favourites. As with all BCCK events the booze will be free flow, so feel free to drink thew bar dry, it’s Friday after all, and at the Christmas party it’s customary to get carried away.
Not only is the luncheon a chance to kick back and enjoy some seasonal merriment, it also an opportunity to give a little something back. Every year companies such as British Airways, Jaguar, Land Rover, Burberry, Jo Malone and many more generously donate a whole host of gifts which are then raffled off. Last years raffle raised over 50 million won and was donated to a very worthy cause. So be sure to bring plenty of cash with you for the raffle and your credit card for the silent auction, it will be a great chance to do some Christmas shopping.
