The dinner dance was based on the original format of the dances held at the Midland in its 1930’s
heyday, when it was visited by society figures such as Noel Coward and Wallis
The evening commenced with a champagne reception in the hotel lobby where guests gazed at
the Eric Gill artwork, including the ceiling medallion of Neptune and Triton and
the Odysseus mural, which was famously stolen and recovered in 1999.
This was followed by a sumptuous 3-course dinner in the Eric Gill suite, which houses
his famous map of North West England mural.
The evening rounded off with dancing until midnight to the High Society Band.
Being the first of many new events to be hosted at the historic Midland Hotel, the 1930's dinner dance was a great success.
Friday 22nd January the Midland will play host to a weekend of mystery and entertainment. Help us solve a murder mystery performed by the After Dark
Theatre Company while you enjoy a 3 course candlelit dinner.
The mystery theme continues on Saturday 23rd January at our Masked Dinner Dance
with entertainment once again from the fantastic High Society Jazz Band.
