Book a year-end event with a difference!

Why do the same old boring lunches at the local pub or restaurant for your year-end function? Book a year-end event with a difference that is certainly out-of-the-ordinary!

Catch The Holiday Express that departs conveniently from the security of the Premier Lounge, Durban Station with its own private platform and secure parking – registration at 8am and departure at 9am.

Beach attire is recommended, or something cool, casual and comfortable.

The ECR Breakfast Teamwill be there and will be putting their bodies on the line to raise money for Toy Story (guests can pay R20 for three chances to Dunk the DJ –guests will attempt to throw a ball to hit a paddle which will release the seat that the DJ will be sitting on, that will ‘dunk’ them into the water).

Guests will also be able to enjoy various games like volleyball and soccer on the beach, and reality show games like “NootVirNoot”, “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” and Bingo on the lawn.

Between 1.30pm and 2.30pm guests will enjoy a beach braai o in front of the Salt Rock Hotel (private beach area).
