What’s not to LOVE about the Ace Christmas Lunch?

26th October 2017
Ace received an avalanche of entries for our competition to win FIVE pairs of tickets for the Christmas Lunch held at The Grosvenor Park Lane on 6th December 2017

Entrants were asked to answer a few simple questions and to tell us why they love the Ace Christmas Lunch


The Ace adjudicators examined all the entries and selected the 5 entrants whose comments they felt summed up the spirit of the event.

Thank you to all who entered, your entries were of such a high standard we would have loved to have awarded further tickets if we could.

The Winning Comments were

“What’s not to love about bringing our prestigious industry together at the Grosvenor Hotel for the annual Christmas festivities! Catching up friends, dressing up all glam, shooting off the balloons, singing along to the carols and being silly billys in the dress up photo booth. A fabulous start to the season!.”

……”It is the start of the Christmas. The warm feeling of joy and happiness starts at Ace Lunch. I simply Love it. And you get to share all this with people from all around the world. ..…..”

“Seeing colleagues past and present displaying unity and camaraderie. It’s an ever changing landscape and the ACE Christmas lunch epitomises good will amongst kindred spirits and represents all that is good about the industry in which we work. It signals the start of the festive period with a brief time to reflect on the year gone by and ponder the challenges that lie ahead in the company of friends..”

“……..The laughter, the fun, seeing old friends & meeting new ones, the Carols, the lunch – this remains the most popular News industry event of the year and provides a super start to the Christmas festivities.……..”

“Where else could you sing Christmas carols/eat Turkey/pull crackers/make flying noisy balloons (tick all that apply) with colleagues, ex colleagues, your boss, ex bosses, suppliers, clients and friends – all in one room?! Literally the BEST start to the festival season and the first all day drinking session of December! ……”
