The Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa has teamed up with the Edinburgh International Magic Festival to bring a unique New Year’s Eve Hogmanay Ball featuring musical performances, magical entertainment and awe-inspiring acrobatics.
On arrival guests will enjoy Champagne and canapes as they experience the thrill of watching magician Kevin Quantum and other world-class performers during ‘backstage rehearsals’ before being invited into the dining room.
Throughout the sumptuous five course meal, featuring highlights from Scotland’s larder including MacSween haggis and 28 day matured Scottish beef, diners will be dazzled by close-up magic and acrobatic performances conjuring a spectacular atmosphere throughout the evening, set to the background of five-piece jazz band Viper Swing.
Diners will be dazzled by a spectacular grand finale in which all the acts will perform to captivating live music, led by ringmaster Peter Gamble. Guests will later be invited outside to Festival Square for a Champagne toast as the clock strikes midnight, complemented by an amazing view of the Hogmanay fireworks over Edinburgh Castle. Guests will then return inside to celebrate the New Year with snacks and dancing until the small hours with a DJ, until carriages at 2:00.
The Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa still have a few more surprises in store and will be sharing further information on the entertainment through the official Facebook event at: The Greatest Hogmanay
