Events | Festivities at the Hilton

Monday, October 09, 2017

I recently attended a blogger event at The Hilton hotel in Manchester, the event itself was in Cloud 23 and is somewhere I've wanted to visit for a long time. I have a slight fear of heights but a fascination with seeing Manchester from above.

I could have happily spent all evening staring out of the windows looking at the view.

There is also a little bit of a morbid fascination as I can see the Hilton from my office so it was nice to see it from the opposite view. I also might have taken some photos and sent them to our facilities manager. I know I hold my hands up as a geek. 

It felt a little odd celebrating and listening to Christmas tunes in September but I think my inner Grinch may have left the building slightly as it did make me feel all warm and fuzzy. Also, how sweet is this little dude.

We had a chance to try some of the party food that is on offer, I only tried a couple of things but they were both delicious. I had sausage wrapped in bacon and what I think was a mini Yorkshire pudding with beef and horseradish. There were a few other interesting looking items going around but sadly they didn’t quite reach me. 

I did wonder if this Giant NOEL sign would fit anywhere in my house. I know the answer is no but how cool would that be.

We also had a little bit of live entertainment, I didn't catch the name of the singer but he wasn't bad at all and if you watch my Random Wednesday vlog you might spot a bit of dancing (not by me!!) 

Sadly I didn't know anyone at the event and I thought I'd know a few people so I settled myself in a comfy seat and watched the entertainment. I also made it so a Hollyoaks stars Instastory! (My claim to fame!! I didn't know they were from Hollyoaks but someone from work saw me on it!!!)

If you have a head for heights then Cloud 23 is a great place for a festive party. I would really like to go for Afternoon tea as that is one of my favourite things to do (can we call it a hobby?)
