About The Event
North West Section Christmas Lunch

Enjoy the festive season with the IGEM North West Section at their popular annual Christmas Lunch. 

The lunch is returning to the Mercure Blackburn Dunkenhalgh Hotel & Spa - a beautiful 700 year old country manor set in the Lancashire countryside. 

Over 160 colleagues from across the gas sector attended last year's event for a memorable afternoon of networking and festive celebrations.

At this year's event guests will have the opportunity to begin the day by networking at the bar, which will open at 11:30. Lunch will start at 13:00 and will include a three course dinner, served with complimentary wine (approximately two bottles per table of 10).

Following the meal attendees will be entertained by guest after dinner speaker Dennis Taylor, retired professional snooker player and winner of the 1985 World Snooker Championship.

Individual tickets can be purchased through the booking system and cost:

  • £30 (+VAT) for IGEM members
  • £37 (+VAT) for non members


Sponsored tables cost £360 (+VAT) and can be booked by contacting Shobna Mistry, Section Secretary, using the details on this page. Sponsored tables include:

All prizes donated for the charity raffle will be gratefully received. Beneficiaries include Blessings in Disguise and Pendleside Hospice, where the money will be donated in memory of former IGEM North West Section Chair Bill Maclean.
