BLACK TIE AND PIE 2012

Accommodation news, venue updates and pie


With BTaP only a few weeks away we wanted to remind you that itís not too late to buy tickets to the best party of the year. BTaP is the traditional end-of-year PistonHeads party where guests wear black tie (BT) and we eat pie (aP). This year we'll be enjoying the sumptuous ambience of†Tortworth Court Hotelin the heart of Gloucestershire's Cotswolds, creating what is known wordwide as THE event to be seen at.

Here's the plan for the night.


  • Pre-dinner drinks in the bar
  • Three-course meal featuring pie
  • Wine on the table
  • Entertainment before and during dinner
  • After-dinner bar tab
  • Dancing to the DJ
  • A few words from the PH team
  • Charity raffle
  • Alcohol breath-testing for the morning after
  • A selection of fine watches on display
  • Blackjack and roulette tables
  • Lots and lots of fun

Last week PistonHeads visited Tortworth Court to sample their food and to have a look at the improvements made to the venue and we are pleased to say that both aspects were superb. The pie has been tasted and approved (although we did request they make the portion size larger), the wines were tasted and the starters and puddings were tweaked to perfection. 2012 will see the best food yet at BTaP.

In addition to the great food, the hotel has undergone a remarkable makeover with the bars, dining room and reception areas all looking absolutely superb. We think youíll approve as the improvements are immediately apparent as you walk through the door.

Tickets to the event are priced at £75 per person and can be purchased from our shop using this link

Tables for dinner seat eight comfortably but can accommodate 10 if required. Please send all table requests to us by email as soon as possible.
