Pressbox (Press Release) -
If you thought glamorous clubbing only took place in big cities, foreign countries and celebrity-ridden mansions – then think again!! Blackburn plays host to one of the Northwest's most extravagant New Years Eve parties around, giving the likes of established events such as Ultima, Chuff Chuff and Tru’s Do’s a competitive run for their money! Going under the name of 'Loaded', head honcho and local entrepreneur ‘Jamie Harvey’ exclusively takes over the areas most exclusive and chicest venue ‘The Dunkenhalgh Hotel’ to stage this esteemed annual spectacular!
This year the four-star stately home is set to undergo an ultra swish, tip top make over, featuring life sized Champaign glasses, implausible entertainers, giant chocolate fountains and an array of ice sculptures, and this is just to tickle your taste buds! Loaded, born in 2003 where its first event was held at the ‘De Tabley’ in Ribchester has had consecutive sell out parties since, and this year over 2000 revellers are expected to travel from all over the country to partake in this annual one off festivity, making it one of the most desirable New Years Eve parties on offer!
We caught up with Jamie himself to run through what this year’s event has in store, he commented, “Each year the event gets bigger and better, and we have been working hard to try and make this year into the ultimate New Years Eve party. We have arranged more space for bar areas as well as bringing on board a selection of drinks sponsors. That way you can spend more time enjoying yourself and most importantly, without burning a whole in your pocket. Just because its New Years Eve doesn’t give us a licence to rip people off – I want this year to be as flawless and hassle free as possible, leaving people to just get on with having a good night!”
The event stages four different rooms of entertainment and so far the line up confirms ‘Twisted Elegance’ – Manchester’s most glamorous club night which takes place in the cities most exclusive venue ‘The Ampersands’, then Rock FM’s breakfast presenter ‘Adam Catterall’ hosts the RnB room alongside ‘Urban Antics’.
