Christmas Breaks at The Midland

The Midland Hotel once again provides the perfect setting to enjoy very special and unique Christmas and New Year packages for 2017.

This famous and iconic Art-Deco building has been lovingly restored, with many original features from its glamorous heyday sitting comfortably alongside its chic interior design, and many of the 44 boutique-style rooms boasting truly spectacular views across Morecambe Bay.

Christmas Celebrations at the Midland 2017

Saturday 23rd December

Arrive to a warm welcome, a glass of piping hot Midland ‘Mulled wine’ before relaxing and unwinding in our Sun Terrace Restaurant overlooking Morecambe Bay and the Lake District Fells beyond.

After settling into your room, join us in the famous Sun Terrace for festive nibbles and a chilled glass of Laurent Perrier Champagne, following which our concierge, Brian Jenkins, will be conducting a tour of the building with insights into this internationally renowned modernist masterpiece.

This evening Mark Needham, General Manager, and the rest of the team welcome you to the evening’s entertainment beginning with a champagne and canapé reception to the sounds of our resident pianist, followed by dinner in the hotel’s Sun Terrace Restaurant.

Our annual gourmet multi-course tasting menu this evening showcases the creativity and skills of our kitchen brigade using some of the best local produce from Lancashire and the surrounding areas.

Then, why not sit back and relax with your favourite tipple as our resident pianist performs a memorable start to our celebrations.

Christmas Eve – Sunday 24th December

After your hearty Lancashire breakfast, why not sit back and relax with a glass of mulled wine, or alternatively explore the hotel and surrounding area.

This afternoon we will be serving a traditional Lancashire hot pot with all the accompaniments. After lunch we will be hosting a local cheese and port tasting followed by the chance to take part in some of our seasonal activities.

Tonight we welcome the Lancaster & District Choral Society to get us into the festive spirit during our drinks & canape reception, followed by a 4 course dinner served in the Sun Terrace restaurant. After dinner we welcome you to take part in our annual quiz evening with some great prizes.

Local parish churches welcome the community and visitors alike for midnight mass, and a warm glass of mulled wine awaits your return to the hotel.

Christmas Day – Monday 25th December

Christmas Day at The Midland begins with a celebratory glass of bucks fizz, a visit from a very special seasonal visitor, and a full Lancashire breakfast. You may then decide to take the opportunity to relax and unwind (or open presents) before the main event of the day - a four course traditional Christmas Day lunch served with all the trimmings, followed at 3pm by the broadcast of the Queen’s Speech.

Join us again in the evening for our Christmas Gala buffet where we hope you will find room for some more of our food offering.

Alternatively, why not compete against fellow guests with our selection of parlour and board games in the rotunda bar, enjoy our screening of Poirot ‘Double Sin’ which was filmed in the hotel in 1989, or simply sit back, relax and enjoy the surroundings for the remainder of a very special Christmas Day.

Boxing Day – Tuesday 26th December

Why not treat yourself (completely optional) lie-in before joining us for a very leisurely breakfast featuring our Bloody Mary and Mimosa station.

This afternoon we welcome you to enjoy the beautiful coastline of Morecambe Bay before returning back to the Hotel for our Mad Hatters Afternoon tea party featuring table magic from the fantastic David Lancaster.

This evening the Sun Terrace restaurant hosts a sumptuous 3 course dinner featuring some of the classic Midland dishes served over the past 100 years and after dinner we will then proceed to our ‘Night at the Dogs’ race night with prizes for the lucky winners.

Finally, why not enjoy a nightcap overlooking the splendour of Morecambe Bay to round off a unique and memorable Christmas.

Wednesday 27th December

Following another hearty breakfast, we must sadly say our goodbyes, to those of you not wishing to take advantage of our special preferential rates to extend your stay, as you leave us with our very best wishes and the hope of welcoming you back to The Midland in the very near future.
