Hi all,
Many of you have approached me asking about the MBC Christmas Party and how you've been happy with the venue but maybe a change of entertainment. I have looked into this today and unfortunately they have moved their Christmas party nights to a Friday, which seems harder for some people to attend. I did contact the Regency and they could offer an alternative for a Saturday however the prices were extortionate and a definite no go. I rang around other venues in the Midlands but they seemed fully booked or also too expensive however we have found a venue which is around the corner from the Regency called the Village
 https://www.village-hotels.co.uk/hotels/solihull/

They can offer a room and tribute night and DJ on Saturday 7th December for around the same cost as last year (prices will come down depending on the numbers).  We don't know the Tribute act but will find out tomorrow when Allan and I go for a visit and guided tour.... maybe a sample of the beer  ;D It is a set menu with a Vegetarian option. They will not hold spaces but will hold rooms for a short period without a deposit so we need to know your thoughts and get an idea of interest ASAP.

👍😎 Have a look and put up a definite price for single and double rooms, striped wall finishing in the rooms could be nasty after alcohol.

Keith, I will know more after tomorrow but won't be able to give a definite price without numbers, last year a double room plus entertainment was 156 at the Regency. The Village is 40 for the night each person without a room and the room cost will depend on numbers so if people can let me know if they are interested that would be great  ;-)up

Hi all,
Tonight Allan and I went to the Village hotel to have a look around. We were both really impressed with the quality and it was so much more up to date compared with the Regency. We have reserved 20 rooms for Saturday 7th December at 93.20 per double, including breakfast and 88.20 for a single rather than a group booking prices of 130 and 140 however they will only hold these rooms for one week. After that you will need to book individually and the room prices will go up.

I have also done it that I won't be collecting deposits for the party night (which is a tribute to the decades with a DJ rather than a tribute night) and you will pay the hotel direct. The party night is 40 per person and you will need to pay a 10 deposit per person ASAP to guarantee your ticket. The remaining balance for the party night will then need to be paid by 1st October. I know this is all short notice but this way it will only cost 10 more than we paid for last year rather than the ridiculous prices I have been quoted this week from places that average around 250 per couple.

So to pay for both rooms and deposits for the party night, you will need to ring 0121 7012928 and speak to Thandi Dube during the week and reference the Buggy Club. For those that want to use the gym or swimming pool it's just 5 on the price of your room, which you can pay for on the day.
P.S The bar is open until 2am  ;D
