LONDON OVERNIGHT MARCH 2017
LONDON 24TH MARCH 2017
Where: Hotel Chocolat school of Chocolate, Brasserie Zedel, Phantom of the Opera and late night cocktails.
Francis1950, Maesderwen, Hellen0811, Suziet, Classy1949, Mazdabulb and Jubo were the lucky VIPs who won a fabulous all expenses paid overnight stay in London!
Our day started at the Hotel Chocolat school of Chocolate. VIPs were greeted with a glass of prosecco before being given a masterclass on Cocoa and how chocolate is made from pod to bar. It was great fun tasting all the different chocolates but the best part was making our own bars! After a full work out of grinding coco nibs, VIPs and guests reaped the rewards by doing what we all love to do...licking the excess chocolate off of the pestle!
After wiping the mess from our faces we made our way to Brasserie Zedels Restaurant just off of Piccadilly Circus. The food and drinks were fantastic and it was a great chance for us to catch up and have a good chat. The evening was just getting going and we took a short stroll down to Her Majesty's Theatre to see Phantom of the Opera. The show was amazing, and as we were sat right near the front, the view was too! During the interval all guests were treated to drinks and were given a program.
After the show we made sure all VIPs made it back to the hotel . From such a busy day, most VIPs were happy to call it a night though some were up for going out, so we headed to a cocktail bar followed by the casino and kept the party going!
It was a day we'll never forget...fantastic guests and pleasure to spend time with them.
Here's what the VIPs had to say:
Suziet - I just wanted to say a massive thank you for an amazing weekend. From start to finish the whole trip was brilliant from the Hotel Chocolat to the Brassiere Zedel and then Phantom, we felt really spoilt there was obviously no expense spared and would encourage other Foxy members to enter all the competitions. It was the first I had entered even though I have been a member for about 7 years. I will certainly be entering more from now on. Both yourself, Nicola and Mandy were amazing and made the weekend you we felt so welcome and you made the trip so much fun and in light of recent events in London probably just what we all needed. Foxy should be proud of the team he has and of course it was great putting a face to other members who were all lovely.
Maesderwen- Just to say what a lovely time myself and my guest had. Special thanks to Mark, Nicola and Mandy. They went out of their way to provide us with a special day.
Helen0811 - Returned home safe, Joyce and I had an awesome time, thanks to all at Foxy for making 2 days very special
Jubo - It was soooooooooooooo good to see you again. It was shamazing. From the start. .....We had an amazing day, made to feel like a V.I.P. from the off. The visit to hotel chocolat was an experience. Got a real insight into how chocolate is made and it was very informative. The chocolatiers knowledge made it very enjoyable, topped off by the fact we made our own chocolate bars and was able to bring them away!!!!!
The meal at Zedel Brasserie was something else. The company, restaurant and atmosphere was fab and the meal was beautiful, even the thought of eating snails was appealing ha ha. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Then there was the Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's theatre. Well this was an amazing cast who sang amazing. A show never to be missed. We have never seen it before and now I can cross it off my bucket list. It was so emotional and mesmerising. I cried. But best of all was the company of Mark, Nicola and Mandy...... What can I say...you three made the day special. They are 3 of the best hosts we have ever has the pleasure to have met. Nothing at all was too much trouble. They catered for every one of the V.I.P winners with a big smile on their faces, and we certainly smiled a lot throughout the whole day.
The hotel was great too, very central and comfortable and the staff were very friendly. Thank you again for the opportunity and making our first trip to London a very memorable one. You guys are amazing and should be commended. We walked the legs off ourselves on Saturday too. We saw all of the beautiful land marks
To sum it up, Great company, great prize, great hosts, great day!!!! Just absolutely great!! Thanks foxy xx
