New Year's Eve Overnight Package

Palmehaven, 31st December 2022 18:30 - 31st December 2022 00:00

For the ultimate New Year's Eve, join Britannia for a gala dinner in Palmehaven with entertainment and dancing from BSSO and overnight included.

Champagne, a lovely 5-course menu from Britannia's kitchen, classy entertainment, five star treatment and luxurious overnight package. The perfect way to celebrate the year and see in the new.

Since opening in 1918, Palmehaven has always presented high quality live music for its guests. Throughout history, several major artists have appeared in the atmospheric and iconic room, under the star-studded ceiling, in amongst the palms. Today's Britannia is continuing this tradition and, in collaboration with Dora3, has established the Britannia Superior Swing Orchestra (BSSO).

The band is fronted by Are Hembre and Mari Haugen Smistad, together with Jan Magne and Helge Førde on horns, playing alongside some of Trondheim's most experienced jazz and swing musicians.

Mari Smistad Haugen and Are Hembre front the Britannia Superior Swing Orchestra.

In 1918, when Palmehaven opened, Louis Armstrong got his first gig with King Oliver's orchestra in New Orleans. The repertoire of BSSO will therefore have roots in the ragtime and swing era from 1918-1950. During this period, many of the greatest jazz and swing classics were created by artists such as Bessie Smith, Scott Joplin, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra.

BSSO has curated a set list for they New Year's Eve concert which harks back to these glory days and also intends to ​​include some of today's popular music in their acoustic soundscape.

Beef Wellington form Palmehaven's kitchen.

The package also includes accommodation in a double room for two people with breakfast and access to the spa, an aperitif on arrival, a 5-course menu from Palmehaven's kitchen, followed by a entertainment, dancing and New Year's toast at midnight.
