Festive feast brings holiday cheer in July

IT MAY not feel like the holiday season without the blistering summer sun, a cold beer and a tray of prawns, but for a lot of people around the world cold weather announces the arrival of Christmas.

This weekend Abbey of the Roses owners Mark Cains and Sonia Hunt will host the first of four Christmas in July themed nights.

"We started doing them five years ago and six people booked," Ms Hunt said.

"Last year we had 350 people and we're expecting a few more this year.

"We get a lot of people coming from Brisbane and the Gold Coast who don't get the cold we have in Warwick, and it's just something fun and different to do."

On Saturday night why not warm up by tucking into a traditional Christmas feast, including a three-course dinner of pumpkin soup, roast turkey, Christmas pudding and classic Aussie pavlova.

There also will be a four-hour drinks package available, as well as Christmas trivia and a secret Santa to put you in the festive mood.

There is even the promise of snow on the night, so don't forget to wear your winter gear.

The cover charge is only $70 this weekend, which is a small saving from the usual $76.50 per person charge.

Bookings are essential and the doors will open at 6pm.

Get in quick - the tickets are still available for the dinners for the next two weeks but tickets have been sold out during Jumpers and Jazz.
