Valentines Dinner

Valentine’s Day 2019 was celebrated in style at KGC with an evening of fine dining and entertainment.

The fine dining was supplied by our regular chefs who provided a high quality menu featuring lamb, guinea fowl and monkfish in the main course with a vegetarian option of a leek, mozzarella, walnut and lemon tart.  From the starters, the sorbet, the mains and through to the desserts all who selected them were fulsome in their praise. The meal was served in their usual efficient way by Stuart, Sammie and helpers - all very smartly turned out in their special outfits.

The fine entertainment was supplied by pianist Lincoln Noel.  Whilst the diners enjoyed their meal Lincoln delivered an almost continuous medley of familiar and unfamiliar tunes with his own very special brand of improvisation. At times it was like a light being switched on for the listeners as the realisation came to them that they did indeed know that tune.  Whether we recognised the tunes or not it was all very enjoyable and played in a very sensitive way so that we were always aware that the music was there but we could also hold conversations with our fellow diners if we wished to.

Once the meal had finished Lincoln’s entertainment became much more focussed as he connected directly to the audience with his playing, his singing and his amusing patter.

Lincoln first appeared at the Valentine Dinner in 2017, recommended by Ann Peake who had been very impressed by his talents at an event in Northampton.  During this year's visit to Kenilworth Lincoln had planned to visit Ann and play for her but events precluded that.

Tributes were paid to Ann during the evening.  MC Sue Draper spoke about Ann, proposing a toast to her memory and before Lincoln’s entertainment concluded he played “Lady in Red” as his special tribute to her.
