Annual Reunion

For the fourth consecutive year the reunion is to be
held at The Imperial Hotel, Blackpool.


The Committee of Noah's ARC are pleased to announce that for the 4th year the location for our Annual Reunion is to be the Imperial Hotel, Blackpool. The Imperial is the most imposing of all Blackpool promenade hotels, with its 160 bedrooms, function rooms for over 300 guests, and car parking for 150 cars, we can highly recommend this hotel to you.

Long used as a major conference centre by the Conservative Party, the Labour Party and Trades Unions, the hotel now prepares to host Noah's ARC! .

The Committee has had communication from the Hotel, which I should like to share with you.

1. The Hotel is installing a new Computer system for keeping up to date with all Hotel Bookings.

The System, will go 'live' on 20th May, and they have requested that any further bookings that are made for the 2018 Reunion are not made until the 1st June 2017. Members will will be able to telephone on a direct line to either Portia, Gill or Emma who will take care of your booking (Quote: Noah's ARC to ensure you are quoted the discounted rate!)

This will give them time to transfer all the pre booked accommodation into the system and confirm with you the details you left on the sheet when you booked out of the Hotel.

If you did pre book your room for next year, and have not heard from them by 1st June, CONTACT THE HOTEL!! They could have missed you off, all names should have been transferred to the new system by 1st June, if you have not heard from them, CHECK!

2. As this year the Hotel will require Payment 28 days in advance of the event. The reason for this is that last year a number of bookings were made and people failed to turn up, nor advise the Hotel that they would not be attending, this meant the hotel was unable to resell those rooms to people that otherwise wanted them, and of course, the Imperial Hotel made a loss with empty rooms that could have been filled.

3. The cost remains the same for next year as it was for 2017 which is as follows: £55 per person per night sharing a double room, (effectively £110 per double room) Single occupancy will be £80 per person per room again, the same cost as this year. Please Note these costs include EVERYTHING ! Buffet, Gala Mea, and Breakfasts.

4. As this year if you are NOT staying at the Imperial Hotel and wish to attend the Gala evening meal on Saturday, or the themed night and Buffet on Friday Night the cost remains the same, ie: £20 per person for each even, Payment to Noah's ARC please (details to follow), NOT the Hotel.

5. The discounted drinks will remain the same as this year with a 15% discount for all members of Noah's ARC.

6. Finally, I have been asked to point out that the Hotel policy on animals has changed since last year and that animals are no longer permitted to stay at the Hotel. Although the change was made last year, and some of our members had already booked, the Hotel honoured those bookings, and permitted those animals. From now on their policy is no animals will be permitted. I understand that where possible this has been made clear to pet owners already.

7. The direct line Reservation booking telephone number for Portia, Gill, or Emma FROM 1st June will be 01253754616
