Wonderland Christmas Parties

1 - 23 Dec 2017

Event Information

Event Details

Approaching the iconic NEC the anticipation of the night ahead reaches new heights; leave behind the crisp winter’s night and your coat at the Broadway ticket office come through the glistening gates into the warmth where the bright lights and energy of Manhattan’s glamour grabs you! Times Square towers overhead reflected in a sparkling sea of dazzling mirror balls and beams of light. Start to explore sampling canapes, collecting friends and colleagues along the way as the night shows its real character as podiums come to life with bursts of entertainment! In the main room, the imposing Manhattan bars serve an assortment of chilled drinks while professional mixologists get to work.  As you take your seats for a superb three course feast, the stage comes to life and you are treated to an evening of the impossible by world-class aerial performers, professional dance troops and high pole balancing acts. As dinner comes to a close, the dance floor opens, casino tables, fairground stalls and fairground rides begin to ply their trade. As midnight approaches breakfast rolls are served against the towering NEW YORK, NEW YORK backdrop that will be talked about well into the New Year...
