    Name: The Poldark Grand Banquet at Trerice
    Date: September 22, 2017
    Time: 6:00 PM - 11:30 PM BST
    Event Description:
    On Friday 22nd September 2017, the Global Natural Healthcare Trust (GNHCT) is hosting a spectacular evening at Trerice Manor, Kestle Mill, Newquay to help raise funds that are needed to complete Pendennis House, the new children’s Hospice.

    Some guests will be dressing up in old fashioned clothes as in Poldark theme, whilst others are just dressing for their own comfort.  Your support is always greatly appreciated by Dame Annette Montague-Thomas personally and the trustees of GNHCT. 

    PROGRAMME OF EVENTS: 

    Welcome drinks will be served at 6.00 and weather permitting this will take place in the glorious gardens of the manor on the front lawn so we can gaze on the impressive exterior that inspired Winston Graham's fictional Poldark ancestral home of "Trenwith".
    We will be entertained by traditional Cornish music from the Newquay Male Voice Choir. Nos Lowen dancers and Cornish musicians will welcome us to the house where we will have a private viewing of the house itself after hours.

    6.45: The Music of Poldark: a unique show and talk with the fantastic authentic music from the hit TV series.

    7.30: After observing the Cornish tradition of "Crying the Neck", and signalling the end of the harvest we will be lead into dinner by our Nos Lowen dancers, where we will be entertained throughout the evening by characters from Poldark performing random vignettes whilst we partake of a grand banquet of the following:

    Bill of Fare:

    Starter:
    Finest potage of spiced organic autumn squash with pearl barley and split pea. Served with Cook'a best crusty bread and local butter. 

    Main course:
    Half a gourmet roasted chicken seasoned with rosemary, lemon and honey. Served with white wine jus. Carrots, onions, fennel and green beans and plentiful roasted potatoes. 
    Vegetarian alternative:  Marron, Wild mushroom and mixed nut roasted terrine. Served with white wine jus and the same trimmings. 

    Dessert:

    Coffee and Petit Fours:

    We are looking forward to welcoming some of our old friends from the cast and crew of Poldark and maybe even some new ones! CEO of Poldark's Cornwall, Karen Colam, will be your host for the evening and she will welcome to the stage with her, Dame Annette Montague-Thomas and other dignitaries. There will be a charity live auction, a diamond raffle and the evening will wind up with plenty of opportunity to hoist up your skirts and partake in some traditional Country and social dances dating from the eighteenth century.  This promises to be a wonderful night to remember and will help the GNHCT to realise the vision for a Cornish treatment centre .

    Immediate booking is essential to prevent missing early Bird price or availability as this compact stately home has very limited space and we are so lucky to be allowed to host this unique event in its wonderful surroundings. Gift aid forms will be available on the night so that the charity may maximise the tax benefits from a prestige event such as this one.

    The tickets are £90 per person.
