Christmas 2015
Wednesday 23rd to Sunday 27th December 2015

Where better to celebrate Christmas in style than at the elegant family-run AA four-star Langham Hotel on Eastbourne sea front, with magnificent views across the bay. Enjoy award-winning food from our Head Chef Michael Titherington and his team, all prepared with produce from local suppliers, including a traditional Christmas Lunch. And, if you’ve been good, there’s even a visit from Father Christmas. A full programme of entertainment has been arranged to make this festive season truly memorable, with live music, a trip to the pantomime, blockbuster movies, and even the chance to win a prize at our ‘just for fun’ casino and race night. Everyone at the Langham is looking forward to giving you a very merry Christmas.

Wednesday 23rd December  

Arrive any time after 2.00pm, or just let us know if you would like to arrive earlier, and we will be waiting to greet you. Once you have settled into your room, you are welcome to come down to the lounge for tea and mince pies – or enjoy an Oscar-winning movie in the TV Room with refreshments provided. If you still need to do some last minute Christmas shopping, there are nearby local shops, and the main town centre is only 15 minutes walk away.

In the evening, visit the Langham Bar before dinner to meet your fellow guests over a glass of bubbly to really get you in the Christmas spirit. Then enjoy a three course dinner at the Langham’s AA Rosette restaurant, where carol singers will herald the start of your Christmas holiday.

After dinner there will be live music and entertainment plus a ‘fun money’ casino and a prize of a bottle of champagne for the highest roller!

Christmas Eve (Thursday 24th December)   

After breakfast, why not explore the town of Eastbourne, or have a leisurely stroll along the spectacular sea front. We will have an early pre-theatre light lunch waiting for you at the Langham, before we take you to the beautiful Devonshire Park Theatre for this year’s pantomime, ‘Peter Pan’ - or you may decide to stay at the hotel and watch a film in the TV Room.

In the evening, dinner will be served in the Langham Restaurant, followed by your choice of live music in either the Bar or the Party Room.

From 10.35pm, taxis will take those who wish to attend Midnight Mass to a church of their choice.

Christmas Day (Friday 25th December) 

Christmas Day starts with a hearty breakfast and a glass of Buck’s Fizz, before a stroll along the sea front to the Bandstand. There you can listen to the Silver Band playing all your Christmas favourites, and even join in with the crowds dancing to the tunes.

Return to the Langham for a traditional Christmas Lunch at midday, with live music, and – if you’re good – a visit from Santa Claus. Then watch the Queen’s Speech on TV at 3 o’clock, followed by a relaxing afternoon, with a Christmas Quiz and Bingo. We will donate a guaranteed jackpot of £200 for the final game! Or you may prefer to settle down to a blockbuster movie with a cup of tea and a slice of Christmas cake. In the evening we will serve a light supper followed by live entertainment and a chance to back a winner on our fun race night!

Boxing Day (Saturday 26th December)   

Start the day with a leisurely breakfast, followed by a gentle walk along the promenade to see Eastbourne’s Dance Band playing Big Band favourites at the sea front Bandstand.  After a light lunch have a restful afternoon at the Langham with a game of Bingo or enjoy another of this year's big movies in the TV Room.

In the evening, enjoy a Gala Boxing Day Dinner, followed by live music and entertainment in the Bar and the Party Room.

Prize winners will be announced for the Christmas competitions that have been held during your stay - ‘Guess the Weight of the Cake’ (made by Head Chef Michael Titherington), ‘Name the Dog’ and ‘Guess the Number of Sweets in the Jar’.

Sunday 27th December     

After breakfast we wish you a fond farewell, a Happy New Year, and we look forward to seeing you back at the Langham very soon for one of our other packages. Or why not extend your stay until Monday and make your Christmas celebration last even longer?
