Having stayed in the Kings Head as a party of eighteen over three days at New Year including New Years Eve I would like to congratulate you on a very enjoyable stay.
The food, friendliness of most of your staff and hotel cleanliness were all to be applauded.
However there was one situation where some improvement would be appreciated :-
My point point concerns the disco on New Year’s Eve – it was, frankly, a disgrace.
I know I speak on behalf of my own party but I’m sure that the rest of the people that night would agree with our view.
The two young boys running the disco persisted in playing music from the Nineties onwards and their ushering in of the New Year was totally unprofessional. It was, after all, the reason we were all there!
The age profile of the people that night was essentially 55+.
I have some experience in this field and people of that age group want to dance to the music of their youth i.e. songs from the 60’s & 70’s with a smattering of tracks from the 50’s and the 80’s and 90’s. Even younger people are happy to dance to the music of the Sixties! It was no surprise that the dance-floor was empty for long periods of time.
In my opinion, when booking your disco, you should make sure that they are able to play music from this era – easily achievable in these days of digital downloads.
By separate email I have forwarded a playlist of tracks which, although subjective, will guarantee to keep a dancefloor crowded for five hours! Perhaps you might use this as a checklist when booking future discos for this age group and you will end up with much happier customers!!
