Australia 2013/14 > Melbourne - Barmy Army Christmas Day Lunch at The Palladium Crown Casino
We are thrilled to announce that we are going back to the Palladium at the Crown Casino in Melbourne for our Barmy Army Lunch on Christmas Day.
We had a fantastic day there in 2010 and it was widely regarded as one of the best events that we have ever organised, the setting is one of the finest in Australia and it hosts many of their most glittering awards ceremonies and gala dinners including The Logies, for the Best Australian Actor, The Brownlow Medal for the best player in the AFL and the Allan Border Medal for the Outstanding Australian Cricketer of the Year.
The Function starts at midday with a Pre Event Drinks reception, followed by a 2 course set lunch of roast turkey and vegetables followed by a traditional plum pudding and custard dessert and coffee and most importantly includes 3.5 hours of unlimited drinks (yes unlimited drinks) including Crown Reserve Red and White Wines, Crown Reserve Sparkling, Pure Blonde and Cascade Premium Light beers whilst the children get unlimited soft drinks within the package.
This will no doubt guarantee that our unique brand of traditional and Barmy Army Christmas Carols, led by Bill the Trumpet and many of our iconic singers will ensure that there's a brilliant party atmosphere to accompany a great meal with first class waitress service in what is without doubt Melbourne's finest function room.
Unfortunately we won't be sharing the function rooms at Crown with the Australian team and their families this time around, we can only assume that they didn't enjoy the background music to their Christmas Lunch provided by the 500 strong Barmy Army choir in the adjacent room! They enjoyed Boxing Day even less!
The cost for members is as follows, Adults £90, Children 12-17 £70 and under 12 £45.
For Non Members Adults £96. Children 12-17 £75 and under 12 £48
Families are most welcome to attend and there is a separate menu for Children under 12.
Numbers are strictly limited to book your Christmas Lunch please book online.
We regret that we are now unable to accept telephone bookings, and that all bookings must now be made using our online booking facility.
