After a lovely Christmas visiting family and friends back home in Liverpool I was delighted to return to the world-renowned Gleneagles Hotel to sing for the guests. Last year I had so much fun with everyone, so I was very glad to be asked back. Once again, the Christmas spirit certainly hadn’t dampened and everyone was in the mood to party!
Where better for a vintage gal like myself to perform than the gorgeous hotel bar, with its 1920s-inspired décor. The music didn’t stay in the 1920s for long though 😉
I started out with some laid-back classics to suit the mood while everybody relaxed with a few drinks, but just like last year, the pace quickly picked up. I moved onto some lively numbers from the 60s and 70s together with a selection of modern chart hits and the party soon got into full swing with plenty of dancing around the bar.
Elsewhere in the hotel, things were a little more jazzy as Euan Stevenson and his trio performed some cool jazz standards. There really is something for everyone at Gleneagles over Christmas, with plenty of activities laid on for both adult and younger guests, together with a great selection of musical entertainment on over the holiday period.
But one of the best things about Gleneagles is the staff. The porters, the reception team, the bartenders and the bar manager were all so friendly and courteous, as usual going out of their way to be the best of service.
All in all, it was a real pleasure to return to this famous Scottish hotel.
