BTaP tickets on sale

We are pleased to announce that Black Tie & Pie tickets will go on sale at 12.00 today priced at the usual price of £75 per person and remind you the event takes place on Saturday November 10.

BTaP 2012 will be held at Tortworth Court Hotel in Wotton Under Edge, Gloucestershire, a stunning location that allows us to have our own dedicated bar, dining room and dancefloor as well as secure parking and beautiful guest rooms. We have been at this venue for a few years now but it continues to offer the perfect location, and facilities that help to make BTaP a very special night.

What is BTaP? Quite simply it's the most glamourous event in the social calendar, a chance to dress up and meet PHers old and new over a three-course meal and a few drinks before we open up the dancefloor and let the night flow. Throughout the night there will be several opportunities to donate to the BTaP charity Cancer Research, the most popular being our raffle which offers the opportunity to win some great prizes.

A few changes are afoot for 2012, all helping to make the night even better. On the night you can expect the following:

  • Pre-dinner drinks in the PH private bar
  • A three-course meal featuring pie
  • Wine on the table
  • After-dinner speeches
  • A charity raffle in aid of Cancer Research
  • Black Jack and roulette in the bar
  • A DJ playing until the end of the evening
  • Details of some special evening entertainment will follow soon

For BTaP regulars you'll be pleased to hear that we have enhanced the sound for the evening meaning the speeches will be clearer for all, in addition the raffle will contain fewer items overall but the quality will be increased accordingly and the raffle tickets will be printed just for us in ONE colour!

Room spacing for dining will also be improved and a centrally located speech stage will ensure we address guests as a whole rather than having the room split front/back.

Sponsors ensure BTaP continues to evolve and this year is no different. Please welcome our 2012 partners:

Oracle Finance: Yorkshire and London based PistonHeads finance partner, and supplier of sports and prestige cars, Oracle Finace return for another BTaP providing the pre-dinner drinks to get things underway.

HPI: The leading vehicle history check providers, and PistonHeads classifieds partner, step up once more to provide the wine of the table during dinner.

Adrian Flux Insurance: Insurance experts and long-term BTaP partner, Adrian Flux returns to sponsor the after-dinner bar, always a popular addition to the event!

Thanks to the these sponsors who return year after year to make the event such a great success.

In addition, we would like to welcome a new partner for 2012.

Watchfinder: The online quality watch experts, and PH forum sponsors, will attend their first BTaP bringing a range of watches presented in display cases in our bar area. Their sponsorship will assist us to bring quality entertainment to BTaP 2012. In addition, members of the Watchfinder team will be on hand if you have any questions or simply want to try a few pieces for size.

    Is it a competition to find the tickets in the shop...?

    Not under new items... nothing returned in the search for BTaP.
