Nearly 200 people braved the weather on Friday night to attend The Nutcracker Christmas Dinner. The Harvey Nichols champagne reception soon got everyone in the party spirit and the guests were completely enthralled by the magical performance of The Nutcracker.
This atmosphere was then carried through to a black tie dinner in the Howard Assembly Room, the stunning room recently restored within Leeds Grand Theatre. Following a delicious three course meal, there were still several highlights yet to come including an inspiring talk from Northern Ballet’s Artistic Director, David Nixon OBE, one of the guests winning a ‘year’s supply of nuts’ and a giant nutcracker, courtesy of the new Waitrose store in Meanwood and the most sought after auction prize of ‘the ultimate team building challenge’, taking a ballet class with Northern Ballet.
Following the success of the evening, Northern Ballet are planning their next dinner event for Wednesday 02 March 2011, with their brand new production of Cleopatra. If you're interested in finding out more information or booking for this dinner, then download this form.
