Belmond has announced a special event for the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express will take place in late March 2020, organised in partnership with Private Drama Events.
Private Drama Events is the UK’s leading creator of luxury experiences and collective of storytellers, producing unique end-to-end events. The team of creatives specialises in communicating stories with authenticity and imagination.
Celebrating a new decade on 27 March 2020, ‘The Party’ event begins under the Venetian skies on the island of Giudecca, home to Belmond Hotel Cipriani. For one night only, Belmond Hotel Cipriani will create a speakeasy in mythical Venice. Guests will be invited to sneak into the secret location, hidden under the iconic resort, for a taste of 1920s imagination.
The following day guests will step aboard the iconic train for a glamorous adventure beginning at Santa Lucia station, Venice. As the train wends through Italy, Austria, Switzerland and France – passing snowy Alps and glassy lakes – guests will bring history to life whilst clad in flapper dresses and spats and sipping champagne in coupe glasses. As ‘The Party’ roars across the rails, surprise entertainment and impromptu performances will unfold both on and off the train.
Venice Simplon-Orient-Express travels throughout Europe from March to November and embarks on the iconic journey to Istanbul once a year. The 2020 season sees the addition of three new Grand Suites on the train; named by the cities that have inspired the design – Vienna, Budapest and Prague.
The legendary train is made up of 17 original 1920s carriages, each of which has its own unique history. Each carriage played a part in the famous trains of the era that pioneered the way for international travellers to cross borders in style and luxury.
Prices for the two-night ‘The Party with Belmond Hotel Cipriani’ journey from Venice to London starts from £3,760 per person based on a one-night stay at Belmond Hotel Cipriani in a Garden View Room and including a celebratory dinner. On board the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express this price includes a stay in a twin cabin, drinks, all table d’hote meals and all entertainment.
