Groups Direct’s new Matinee Show packages got off to a swinging start with Frank Sinatra at Planet Hollywood

When you think of Frank Sinatra this sleek, suave gentleman and a wealth of swinging ballads including: “Fly me to the moon,” “My way,” and “New York,” comes to mind.

And now a performance with Stephen Triffitt as Frank Sinatra will have you feeling like you are in the room with Sinatra himself.

The performance from Stephen comes as part of Groups Direct’s new Matinee Show packages – first-class entertainment, a three-course meal and welcome drink upon arrival.

Frank Sinatra was the first of the shows. Similarly to if the group was attending a theatre show, visitors arrive at the venue and present their tickets.

They are then given a themed drink – Sinatra Slinger cocktail for this occasion – and shown to their themed-named table, such as That’s Life.

First and second courses were served with a break for the performance. ‘Frank Sinatra’ performed a number of hits, and then dessert was served before the entertainment continued.

The Matinee Show performers are arguably some of the best tribute acts in the country, with Stephen being in the industry for 17 years, coming second in Stars In Their Eyes, and performing in Las Vegas.

The Matinee Shows, which are in association with James R Hearn, will also feature Whitney Houston, Michael Bublé, Freddie Mercury and many more. Visit
