Hogmanay Gala Ball

The Balmoral's Hogmanay Gala Ball is a ticket to one of the hottest events in town. The scene is set for this renowned celebration with a pipes and drums performance. 

A Champagne and canapé reception follows to launch the evening in style. Guests will enjoy a magnificent dinner, coupled with the finest of wines – served in the Sir Walter Scott Suite.  

After dinner, the rousing ceilidh band will get you on your feet, with help to guide even the most inexperienced guests through each step. The Bells of 2020 will be ushered in as our musicians lead you in a traditional Auld Lang Syne.
