Fort Foxy October 2017
FORT FOXY - FRIDAY 27TH OCTOBER
Where: No Mans Fort - Portsmouth Solent
We went out all guns blazing and took over No Man's Fort to claim it as Fort Foxy for one night!
This amazing and quirky fort is situated just off the coast of Portsmouth and is now used as a hotel. We thought this would be a great place to throw a party and in true Foxy Bingo style we did just that!
Francis1950, Happyangel1, jellygelly, paige22, pamzie75, Sami70, squirrel1775, sarahbob and silkie1 were the lucky VIPs who won a pair of tickets. VIPs were treated to a champagne reception before being taken on a tour of the fort. After the tour we all had a lovely lunch. As we had full exclusivity to the fort we could take full advantage of the many facilities on there. Some guests used the Jacuzzi’s whilst others fished off the side. Many were happy to take in the beautiful views whilst having a good chat over a beer or two!
The evening started off in the foyer where we met all the VIPs and they were treated to champagne and canapés. After this we headed downstairs were the main dining room was revealed. It was set out beautifully and looked amazing! Everyone was served up a three course meal along with plenty of drinks!
There were even more surprises as the night went on. After dinner guests were guided to another room where we brought the fun of the casino to life! There was live blackjack, roulette and the wheel of fortune! It was great fun with loads of prizes given out along the way.
At 11pm we all went upstairs and were treated to hot chocolate with a dash of rum. The outdoor fire was burning and we toasted marshmallows under the stars, there wasn't a cloud in the sky and we actually watched the moon drop over the Isle of Wight like a biscuit dunked in tea!
There was Karaoke for the guys who wanted to party into the early hours. Others were happy to go to their rooms and relax after such an amazing day!
Here’s what some of winners had to say:
Thank you so very much for a wonderful trip to No Mans Fort it was a brilliant experience and everybody from Foxy made it a wonderful day and also a brilliant night with the casino, you all made it special for us, and I am so pleased we could go.

I have tried so hard over the years to catch a bass from the ocean!!!!!! And you guys made it a reality...touched is not the word!!!!! Chippa many thanks once again for the best hospitality and memorable occasion!!!!! Love you chippa x
What an amazing time we had at Fort Foxy a big ty to you Pete, Christian, Kim, Nicola and Alex a great Foxy team as well as all the other Foxy VIPs we met. We really look forward to seeing everyone again really soon ty again.
My sister and I had the most amazing time at Fort Foxy, we would describe it as a once in a lifetime event!
Everything was perfect, the rooms were huge, I think the bathroom alone was bigger than my own bedroom lol. The food was delicious, tender and tasty!
Although we didn't win, the casino was a great idea, lots of fun and it's the first time I've ever seen women, myself included, dancing in slippers.
I think it's going to be hard for Foxy to match or surpass that event, my own suggestion would be Vegas for a long weekend.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Foxy who worked so hard ensuring that we all had a great time, so THANK YOU!!
