July 2016 Newsletter | I for India

Greetings from I for India and great to be back in touch with you all here ! It’s only a few more days to go for the long summer school break so many of us are probably looking forward to a summer family holiday or taking a good few weeks off to visit family and friends in India.

As mentioned last month, preparations are well under way for our 2 very fun and festive events in December, namely the Christmas markets visit and New Year’s Eve. We also have a new and exciting event to announce “K for Kabali” which is nearly SOLD OUT even before we write this newsletter. We are working towards making all these three events even more special and grand.

Christmas markets visit to Lille: 10th December 2016

In order to plan something novel we reviewed the various travel events so far… a nearly chartered flight experience to Spain, ferry to Normandy, boat cruises on Thames and several coach trips including visits to Bath and Birmingham Christmas markets in previous years.

And then the grand idea emerged … private and exclusive travel experience on Eurostar !!!

Yes, we will have dedicated, private and exclusive coaches on the Eurostar for the return trip to Lille, which has one of the largest Christmas markets in France. The outline program is as follows:

Saturday, 10th December 2016:

  • Outbound : St Pancras International to Lille (@08:58 arrival 11:30)
  • Spend the day in Lille Christmas markets
  • Return : Lille to St Pancras International (@20:30 arrival 21:30)

Pricing for return travel on exclusive Eurostar coaches:

  • Infants upto 4 yrs may travel free (in parent’ lap, no separate seat)
  • Child (4 -12 years) : £ 60 (Deposit payable now £15)
  • Adult (above 12 years) : £ 80 (Deposit payable now £20)

With our first coach already filled up, we’ve hired a 2nd coach which is also filling up with about 20 seats to go… so hurry up and don’t miss the train, quite literally !

What’s more, as a festive treat, the travellers on this trip would also avail special entry prices for our New Year’s Eve extravaganza.

PLANS OPEN! ...31st December 2016 : New Year’s Eve Extravaganza

Our other December grand and festive event is the New Year’s Eve event. We’ve set our sights high for a grand finale to this year too with mega plans for a fitting New Year’s Eve Extravaganza. As great venues go really quick, we have also booked Nakshatra, a really versatile venue for this event.

For those of you who are not aware, Nakshatra is a stunning hall that can host over 400 persons, in a privately gated and sprawling yet secluded property, with open grounds and parking for over 200 cars. It’s easily accessed from M4, M3 and M25 areas.

With the venue now secured, we are focusing on the other arrangements for the event such as catering, variety entertainment for adults and children, games, prizes, etc. As always, we are working to get some great event partners to provide a really memorable and fantastic event this year too.

As a token of appreciation for our members and newsletter readership clientele, we would like to offer an exclusive Twin Offer with Eurostar & Early Bird offer
