Rendezvous Skipton concert

Police concert to raise money for cancer charity

A performance by the renowned Greater Manchester Police Male Voice Choir in Skipton on 27 January is to benefit a children’s cancer charity.

‘An Evening of Song’ will take place at the Rendezvous Hotel on Keighley Road. A raffle held during the evening will raise money for Petal Childhood Cancer Research. The charity, which supports Cancer Research UK with its research into childhood cancer, was started in 2000 by Karen Weaving, who co-owns the Rendezvous Hotel with her husband Malcolm.

The Greater Manchester Police Male Voice Choir is a group of mainly retired police officers and civilians. Founded in 1974, the choir performs throughout the UK and overseas, regularly appearing on television and radio.

Commenting on the event, Karen Weaving says: “I’m delighted the Greater Manchester Police Male Voice Choir has agreed to come to Skipton to perform for us. The choir’s reputation for presenting a programme of classic songs mixed with comedy and ad-lib humour should provide a welcome change from the bleak January weather. I’m also pleased that we’re going to be able to raise much-needed funds for Petal Childhood Cancer Research. Over the last year, thanks to the generosity of the people of Skipton and the wider area, we’ve raised more than 1.3 million pounds.”

Tickets for the performance are £8 in advance, or £10 on the door. Dinner and accommodation packages are also available starting at £25 to include a 3-course dinner and ticket, and £58 for dinner, bed, breakfast and ticket.

Rendezvous Shortlisted for two national tourism awards

It’s been a wonderful few weeks as we’ve welcomed many hundreds of people into the hotel for their Christmas party events. But this week we received even more good news with the notification that the Rendezvous Hotel has been shortlisted in two categories at the British Coach Tourism Awards 2018. This prestigious awards scheme recognises those tourism industry suppliers, including hotels, that understand the needs of coach operators and group travel organisers.

The first category is ‘Accommodation Provider of the Year – Independent Hotels’. The judges were looking for hotels that can demonstrate not only a commitment to welcoming coaches, coach groups and coach drivers, but also how they have developed and enhanced that welcome over the last year. Being shortlisted in this category really does show how the team at the Rendezvous really does step up to the mark when working with coach operators and group travel organisers.

The second category is ‘Coach Tourism Innovation of the Year’, with the judges looking for an innovation introduced in 2017 and that has a direct link, and benefit, to coach tourism. We submitted ‘The Real Yorkshire Experience’, our new groups package that brings together many of Yorkshire’s most popular visitor attractions into a two, three or four-night itinerary, and adds in Yorkshire-themed entertainment and food in the hotel.

The winners will be announced on 21 March 2018.
