Allyson McKimm, Events Director for Hastings Hotels says;
“We are delighted to be hosting these high calibre tribute shows at the Europa Hotel as part of the many celebrations to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of the world famous Europa Hotel.
If the walls of the Europa hotel could talk, they could tell the amazing stories stretching back from the emergence of the Europa in 1971, its trials, tribulations and suffering throughout “the Troubles”, a story of strength and resilience of its staff through the 70’s and 80’s and to its emergence in 1995 as the chosen hotel to host President Clinton and the presidential entourage.”
Since then the Europa has hosted a whole host of celebrities including:
- Politicians such as George Mitchell, David Cameron and William Hague and Mo Mowlam.
- Journalists including John Sergeant, Kate Adie, Sir Max Hastings and Sir Trevor McDonald.
- Actors including Howard Keel, Sir Peter Ustinov, James Nesbitt, Robson Green, Sir Roger Moore; Nigel Havers, Patricia Hodge, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts.
