Christmas Lunch

Our Christmas Lunch in association with Europasat will take place on Wednesday 6th December and this year we are moving location to the lovely 4-star Mandolay – the Boutique Hotel in Guildford. This is our 6th annual lunch and it promises to be bigger and better than ever before. As always, the lunch will be hosted by our founder, Jenny Seagrove and we are delighted to announce that our Guest Speaker is none other than the incredible Chris Moon MBE.
Festivities will start at 12 noon with a complimentary glass of Prosecco. Lunch will be served at 1.00pm and this year’s menu is a very attractive one :


Corn-Fed Chicken Terrine served with Tarragon & Mushroom, Celeriac Remoulade & Truffle Mayonnaise
Salmon Gravadlax scented with Dill, Lemon and Earl Grey Tea served with Melba Toast
Warm Squash & Rocket Salad with Garlic Vinaigrette (V)


Great British Roast Turkey Breast with a seasonal Herb Stuffing and Turkey Jus
Pan Seared Salmon fillet served with Lemon Butter Sauce
Mushroom & Tarragon Strudels served with Madeira Sauce (V)

All meals will be served with seasonal potatoes and vegetables


Traditional Christmas Pudding with Brandy Butter Sauce
Chocolate Delice served with Blood Orange Sorbet

Coffee and mints

Red & White wine and water will be available on all tables and the Mandolay Bar will be open for those wishing to purchase other drinks. Special Dietary requirements will be catered for as long as advised by 20th November.

The meal will be followed by a talk from Chris Moon MBE, a truly inspirational speaker. Chris is a double amputee who has overcome adversity and supposed limitations. He was blown up clearing landmines for a charity in Africa, losing his lower arm and leg. Less than a year after leaving hospital, he completed the London marathon and now runs the world’s toughest ultra-marathons.  He’s also one of the few Westerners to have survived being kidnapped by the Khmer Rouge. He is one powerful man.

Throughout the afternoon, tickets will be on sale for our raffle and Christmas Tombola and bids may be placed on our Silent Auction items. MCS Merchandise, including 2018 calendars and Christmas cards, will also be on sale.

General ticket price is £65. However, book before 6th November, or with a group of 4 or more, and save £10, paying just £55 per head. A table of 10 is £550 and will receive a magnum of Prosecco to have with your meal. So get in early and start your Festive season in fine style while supporting Mane Chance. Tickets can be purchased by emailing

We are very grateful to Europasat who continue to be great supporters of Mane Chance.
