TREE LIGHTING CEREMONY ‘WINDS OF CHANGE’
Help fan the flame for the festive season as we light the ‘Winds of Change’ Christmas tree to the tune of festive rock ballad carols! It’s the first pit stop on our Route ‘50th Anniversary’, packed with magical memory-making moments for little rockers, golden oldies and everyone in between!
A ‘JINGLE BELL ROCK’ CHRISTMAS
Pool & Fuego
Grab your leathers and join the Jingle Bell Rock gang at Hotel Giraafornia for a free-wheelin’ ride down memory lane fuelled by all of your festive favourites: revving roasts from turkey to venison loin, timely trimmings, homemade pates, terrines and roasted chestnuts, mouth-watering world oysters, a truly rockin’ raclette plus Christmas Pudding, Panettone and Pandoro aplenty. Even Santa is happy to swop his snow shoes for biker boots and his sack for a guitar to get in on the riff-fuelled fun!
‘ROCK IS IN THE AIR’
Follow the giant Zeppelin to the beach where rock is quite literally in the air – set to the legendary solos of Damjan Pejčinoski, one of the 200 greatest rock guitarists of all time, and the rock-blockin’ beats of DJ Nick.
