The Rose’s event of the year

New venue: Dumbleton Hall Hotel, Nr Evesham, Worcestershire

New dates: Sunday 21st October 2018 for two or three nights

Our Rose's Harmony Event moves to an exciting new venue: Dumbleton Hall Hotel, which is a truly magnificent traditional Manor House with fabulous interior features set in 19 acres of stunning­ gardens, including woodland and a lake. It is situated in the beautiful Cotswolds countryside just 7 miles from Evesham on the border between Worcestershire and Gloucestershire with the larger historic towns of Cheltenham, Stratford-upon-Avon and Worcester all within 20miles.

For the 30th year of events organised by Martine Rose, our move to a new venue has been prompted by a change in ownership of the hotel we had been using in Scarborough for the last seven years. But having visited Dumbleton Hall, we are particularly excited by the new venue and are convinced anyone who joins us in October will be so also.
Because the Dumbleton Hall Hotel is extremely popular with weekend weddings booked over a year ahead throughout the year, our ‘Dumbleton Days’ will be for 2 or 3 nights starting on Sunday, leaving Tuesday or Wednesday.

  • ‘Miss Rose of the Year’ Parade Monday
  • Burlesque performance by Kitty Ribbons
  • Witchcraft and Wizardry theme party Sunday
  • Lip-sync battle
  • Disco ‘til late Sunday and Monday
  • Excellent 3-course Gala Dinners
  • Complimentary pre-dinner glass of 'fizz' (Prosecco)
  • Department and posing workshops with Kitty Ribbons
  • Trade stands throughout Monday
  • Make-overs and Photo Studio
  • Fashion Show (you can be a model)
  • Quiz and Treasure Hunt
  • Raffle with proceeds as gratuity for hotel staff
  • Plenty of free parking

Some of the above is subject to confirmation and the scheduling may vary. A full programme will be released nearer the date. We would appreciate any offers of anything you might be able to do to provide some sort of service or entertainment for our proceedings. A singer/pianist (there ia a piano) for Tuesday evening would be most welcome.

The dinners for Sunday and Monday evenings will be in the main banqueting room with large round tables. This room also has a dance floor and is where we will have our band and disco. The dinner for Tuesday evening will be in the main Cedar Room restaurant.

Number of nights:
The Tuesday night is optional. All the main events will be on the Sunday and Monday nights. However we expect many of our guests will like to have the extra day to chill out and relax in the wonderful ambience of Dumbleton Hall and its grounds or visit places of interest in the area.

Coming Alone:
If you are coming alone, rather than select a single room or single occupancy, you might like to consider sharing a twin-bedded room with another. Not only will this save you the cost of the supplement, many first-timers take this option as having a room mate can be very helpful. If you don’t have anyone in mind, we may be able to allocate someone.
