Best Parties Ever Unveils ‘Masquerade Ball’ Party Packages for Cheltenham Racecourse This Year... With September being the optimum time for people to start booking their Christmas ‘do’, the UK’s leading Christmas party specialist, Best Parties Ever has unveiled its new ‘Masquerade Ball’ themed events for Cheltenham Racecourse this year. The announcement comes as research conducted by the company reveals that 71% of companies in Gloucestershire are not aware of the tax relief associated with holding an annual party for employees. “An office Christmas party is one of the most tax efficient ways of rewarding staff, with £150 tax allowance per head and no national insurance contributions,” comments Tim Stevens, managing director of Best Parties Ever. And with food and entertainment rated as the most important elements of a Christmas party by local partygoers, there will be an abundance for all to enjoy.

For more information call on 0844 499 4040, e-mail or visit

From Thursday 5 December until Saturday 21 December, guests can slip behind their masks and be transported back to 18th Century grandeur for an evening of indulgence, illusion and intrigue. As the venue bursts to life with Venetian street theatre, living statues and tunes from the resident band, guests can enjoy an aperitif, before taking their seats for a four course dinner; accompanied by entertainment from singers, dancers and acrobats. Later, revellers can jump on the dodgems, show off their moves on the dance floor or try their luck at Blackjack or Roulette in the casino. And at the end of the night, a survivor’s breakfast will be served before carriages home.

Prices start from £37.50 (+ VAT) per person and throughout the party season Best Parties Ever will be raising money for The Pied Piper Appeal.

at The Everest...

Christmas a time for families to come together, enjoy each others company, laugh and cry over the year that has passed and share stories with long lost relatives. The story of The Everest began a quarter of a century ago, with a small restaurant at the summit of Portland Street. The only historical significance being that the building once housed the first author of the history of Cheltenham, Mr. John Goding. The restaurant quickly grew in popularity, snowballing through late nights and plenty of early mornings, the perfectionist work ethic that The Everest has been built on.

As autumns fell away and winters wavered, The Everest swelled, almost to bursting point! But with the acquisition of a larger building next door, Everest’s ever growing family easily settled in its new environment. Now today we can look back at all the tears and sleepless nights with a nostalgic smile as our regular customers return, week after week, new stories to tell, new children and grandchildren to explore the flavours of the subcontinent and, most importantly, find a nice cosy place to relax and recuperate after a
