Lunch at Skylon Restaurant

Join fellow music lovers on a Sunday afternoon for a welcome drink at the beautiful Skylon Restaurant, situated on the first floor of the Royal Festival Hall in the South Bank Centre. The restaurant offers gorgeous panoramic views of London; it's here that we can soak up the scenery and enjoy a three-course lunch before taking our seats in the auditorium for the performance at 3pm.

Philharmonia Orchestra

Be treated to an afternoon of Christmas music with a difference. The Royal Festival Hall is a wonderful 2,500 seat concert venue located in the South Bank Centre. Founded in 1945, the world class Philharmonia Orchestra performs around 40 concerts in the South Bank Centre every year and proudly presents a magical afternoon of timeless Christmas delights from some of our favourite festive films. Pete Harrison conducts a programme stuffed full of well-loved and familiar compositions including Home Alone, The Polar Express, Love Actually, Harry Potter, It's a Wonderful Life, Elf, White Christmas, The Snowman and many more.

Gratuities

There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual.We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.

Dress Code

Dress will be smart casual, however, gentlemen are requested to wear a shirt and tie for lunch and the performance.
