The Grand Brighton held a festive extravaganza on Wednesday (28th November) inviting guests and the community to celebrate the launch of their Christmas wish campaign and kick off their festive light displays. With the hotel’s refreshed façade revealed after months of restoration work, the Grand Brighton showcased its beautiful exterior with a showstopping display of light projections, while its iconic interiors were dressed in stunning festive decorations.
The evening began with Christmas carol singing by members of Westdene Primary at 5.30pm, with a special guest from Sussex children’s charity Rockinghorse switching on the Christmas lights at 6.00pm.
The event also marked the launch of the Grand Brighton’s Christmas Wish Campaign supporting three incredible local charities - The Clock Tower Sanctuary, Rockinghorse Children's Charity and Cafe Domenica. Christmas Wishes are available for purchase for £1**, with all proceeds being collated and distributed to the three charities above. Participants will enjoy taking a moment to write a wish before heading to the iconic Grand staircase to hang it on the incredible gold garland extending the entire seven-floor stairwell.
Andrew Mosley, general manager at The Grand Brighton said: “We thoroughly enjoyed sharing this occasion with the Brighton community and our guests, further celebrating our completed façade and kicking off the festive season in style. Our Christmas Wish campaign will be a lovely way for everyone to make their own mark as part of our history, leaving their wishes on our iconic staircase, but mostly ensuring that we’re giving back to some truly amazing local causes.
“It’s been an exciting year for The Grand Brighton and this is the perfect way to top it off – roll on 2019!”
