Burgess launches Grand Ballroom
JOHN Burgess opened the Burswood hotel, now Crown Perth, in the ’80s after arriving in Perth in 1978.
Last Tuesday, the former game show host launched Crown Perth’s refurbished Grand Ballroom.
Burgess married Gianna Burgess at the hotel and the couple recently celebrated their 28th wedding anniversary.
Launching the new-look event space, Burgess said Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull had seen it during a recent visit to Perth “and he liked it”.
Crown chief operating officer Andrew Hill said opening the refurbished ballroom for an April 13 function with the Prime Minister certainly put pressure on the team.
