On Saturday, 10th February 2007 at 1900 the THUNDERBALL begins! No, not arguably one of the best Bond movies of all time, but a party like no other in Blackpool. The Empress Ballroom at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool is the venue and it is a magnificent and fitting place for a party in the true spirit of TVR enthusiasts! For those who may not have heard about this or followed the debate both in our discussion forums and on Pistonheads, this event is being organised to say a final thank you to the staff at Blackpool who have built our cars and who have recently been made redundant as a result of the manufacturing arm of TVR, Blackpool Automotive, being placed into receivership just before Christmas.
There will be live music from The Kommitments
A finger buffet is also included:
Selection of Assorted Sandwiches
Spicy Chicken Wings
Mushroom Vol au Vents
Mini Pork Patties
Potato Wedges in Skins
Vegetable Crudities with Dips
Open Filled Bridge Rolls
Pork Ribs in Barbecue Sauce
Cheese & Tomato Pizza Slices
Goujons of Plaice served with Tartare Sauce
Sliced Scotch Egg
Asparagus & Smoked Salmon Rolls
Red and White Wine will be served with your meal.
