‘Tis the season to be jolly, and as Christmas creeps closer on the calendar, The Star Gold Coast have unveiled their infamous events that invites you to eat, drink and be merry.
After a spectacular year with lots of silver linings, everyone will be looking to celebrate, so beating the crowd should be a priority for locking in fun and frivolities with friends, family and work colleagues. So, we suggest you cast your attention to The Star’s infamous Not So Silent Night Christmas Ball.
If a decadent night of great food, first-class entertainment and getting all dressed up sounds like the only way to kick off your festive season, then this is the event for you.
The location is set at The Star’s Ballroom event space, where your evening will include a 4-hour drinks package and a three-course meal — set to rival mum’s Christmas roast, that’s for sure. Beverages will consist of Queensland produced wines and some of the Gold Coast’s best-produced beers from our long list of award-winning breweries.
Should you feel like amping things up a notch, there’s also the option to upgrade your ticket to VIP status, whereby you’ll have additional access to a bespoke collection of spirits to drink at your leisure!
The menu for the evening, curated by some of the finest chefs, is sure to provide the ultimate festive feast with Australian cuisine intertwined with Northern Hemisphere Christmas favourites.
Entrees will include Mini Crab Sliders and Hervey Bay Scallop Ceviche before the main course is either Honey Glazed Atlantic Salmon with confit potato or Italian Roast Porchetta with sauteed cabbage and apple.
And suppose there is room for anything else, the dessert station will astound even the sweetest of tooths with a barrage of insanely delicious goodies, including Classic British Christmas Pudding with brandy scented custard, Bûche de Noel (a traditional 19th century French Christmas favourite), Layered Cherry Pavlova with vanilla whipped cream, kirsch coulis, fresh cherries, and Traditional Trifle with vanilla-infused custard, summer fruits, jelly and cream.
Plus, how could anyone leave out Fruit Mince Tarts and Christmas Cookies — the epitome of Christmas in one bite!
It wouldn’t be a Christmas ball without back-to-back world-class entertainment schedule with two sensational acts to keep the evening vibes flowing and the mood merry. To get the Christmas cheer started, 42Band will be kicking off the entertainment for the evening, who are presented by the ever-popular Hanlon Brothers, known for their unique high energy and heart-warming RnB songs. Taking you later into the night is the Gold Coast’s sensational and glamourous DJ Brooke Evers. This young lady unquestionably knows how to get people moving with electro-fused hits such as Get Dirty and Check Me Out.
So, Gold Coasters, if this all doesn’t sound like the best possible way to start the silly season (AKA Christmas 2021), then don’t delay. Tickets have already been shifting in a quick smart fashion and only a little over 200 tickets are actually now left. We know it’s only just turned October, but you have to organise these things early: go on, gift yourself a jolly good Christmas!
