Mail Day – Heritage Event at the E & O Hotel, Penang (May 2010)

Flyer for the "Mail Day" event at the E & O Hotel in Penang, 15 May 2010As part of the Eastern & Oriental Hotel’s 125th anniversary celebrations, the hotel is organising a month of special events in May, including the “Mail Day” E & O Heritage Trail Dinner and Dance on Saturday 15 May. Tickets cost RM 200 per person and include a four-course western set meal and free flow of wine and beer from 7pm – 10pm.

In the early part of the 20th century, before regular air connections existed between the western world and Penang, mails were delivered once every four to six weeks from the “mail ship”.  The much anticipated arrival of letters and parcels to the local community from their loved ones provided a reason for the Eastern & Oriental Hotel to hold a “Mail Day” dinner and dance event.

All profits from this event will be donated to charity.

For more details and to book tickets, please contact the E & O’s sales and marketing department.
