Come join us in the Whisky Bar at 8pm for a warm and cosy evening with Sandy Marshall. Sing along or lounge back and take in the moving Christmas Carols. Complimentary mulled wine will be served with homemade mince pies.

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there…
