It is definitely not ‘all work and no play’ at the Lancaster London! We also take the time to have a little bit of fun along the way as well as taking the time to look after our community, environment and neighbours. Below are some examples of what we have been up to recently.

In the Hotel

Our colleague Christmas panto is always great entertainment for all! The team get together in the summer (yes we know it takes some time to coordinate this masterpiece!) to write the script and audition for the parts. Then with many hours of practice, lots of hard work,  a dash of creative flair, some great audio visual help from our partners Insync, and a pinch of good luck – and puff! A pantomime will come to be! It is performed at our colleague Christmas lunch where the senior management and Strategy team are the waiters for a change allowing other to enjoy the festivities.

Loyalty and commitment to the Lancaster London is important and we know that hard work and dedication to the job should not go unnoticed. With this in mind, you will receive recognition and financial rewards once you reach 5,10,15 and 20 years of service as well as being invited to celebrate your year’s anniversary with your colleagues at a wonderful annual lunch. Here they are given certificates and recognised across the company for their commitment.

Every year is a reason to celebrate our success! We work hard and we play hard! At the beginning of the year, the whole team is invited to celebrate our success here at the Lancaster London Awards Party. Our team is wined and dined by our professional Events team and enjoy an amazing 3 course dinner and drinks. Every year there is a different theme so there is always a surprise in store.

In the Community

Colleagues regularly get involved with Springboard – a charity that helps young people get into our industry. One charity fundraiser saw our colleagues abseiling from the 19th floor of the Hotel – dressed as bees of course in honour of our roof top hives!

We regularly hold small events internally to raise money for our hotel charity, the Friends Fund. We use this money to give our colleagues a helping hand when they fall on hard times, particularly for those that are on long term sick and finding it difficult to make ends meet.

Community Street Fair – We participated in this fair to support local schools and to raise money for their charities. We all had a great time supporting this event, bringing along bee masks and cupcakes for children to decorate.

Every autumn term, just before we harvest the honey from our beehives, we go to a local primary school assembly. Here we give them a little presentation about bees and then ask them to prepare an art project for us to display at our London Honey Show, every October.

As a hotel, we donate our old uniforms and other clothing, unwanted clothing and lost property to The Passage – a homeless charity in Victoria.

We have our very own football team! The Lancaster Bees are regularly on the field playing against other hotels in tournaments. Sometimes raising money for charity at the same time!
