This December, the venue’s catering and events partner, Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, is hosting a series of Christmas lunches incorporating a behind the scenes tour of the refurbished stadium and a delicious two course meal.
Perfect for football fans, families or corporate groups looking for a unique Christmas celebration, the special ‘Legendary Festive Fridays’ will take place on Friday 7, 14 and 21 December. Guests will be treated to a guided tour of the on-site Education and Heritage Centre, where they will hear the unique story of Northern Irish football, re-live the atmosphere of famous matches and even have the chance to try and score a penalty past Northern Ireland Legend Pat Jennings, before sitting down to a seasonal buffet lunch.
Created by head chef Fritz Machala, the Christmas lunch features a choice of three lavish main courses: traditional roasted turkey with ham and stuffing, cocktail sausages and rich turkey gravy; pan fried hake served with buttered greens and mussel and saffron cream; or cranberry, mushroom and chestnut arancini with a winter squash velouté. A sumptuous dessert of apple and plum pudding, with fresh cream and brandy sauce anglaise, will be served for dessert.
Derek Coulter, Account Manager, Sports, Leisure and Travel at Sodexo said: “Christmas is a special time of year and for 2018, we wanted to offer a fully immersive festive dining experience for football fans. Our ‘Legendary Festive Fridays’ are a great opportunity to go behind the scenes of Northern Irish football, before sitting down to enjoy a delicious festive themed lunch with friends, family or colleagues
“The Stadium’s one-of-a-kind memorabilia, heritage and event spaces make Windsor Park a fantastic destination for any celebration.”
