A Narnia theme for a Christmas party? What could be better than that? In 2015 we were lucky enough to work on just such a request, which delighted guests in Bognor Regis. From costumed characters including the Ice Queen and Mr. tumnus, we also booked Bjorn the Polar Bear, Sphere Contortion and more. Enjoy the original blog below.
The thing about working at Sternberg Clarke is that we get to enjoy a work Christmas party every night of the month leading up to Christmas Day, with a whole host of events going on each evening. From the more modest Christmas parties where only a Christmas DJ is required to the more extravagant affairs with a combination of brilliant seasonal acts, one thing is clear – you all love to party!
We tend to provide most of our event entertainment in and around London but we aren’t averse to providing work Christmas parties a little further out, especially when it means a trip to Butlins for all concerned! Yes, all of these photos come direct from Bognor Regis, where our client was celebrating the end of a busy conference. And what a celebration! Our Winter Wonderland provided a whole host of festive cheer beginning with a trip into Narnia, where Mr. Tumnus greeted guests for the drinks reception.
Any Narnia-themed setting wouldn’t be complete without an Ice Queen to preside over the landscape. With this in mind, we provided a (temporary) glitter tattooist, who decorated guests with many festive symbols including stars and snowflakes. Of course, a snowy scene is not a snowy scene unless you can come face to face with a Polar bear, so we threw that in too; Bjorn the Polar Bear providing guests with a huge dose of Christmas cheer!A photo booth was on hand throughout the night to capture all of the excitement but ‘tis the season to provide more entertainment and provide entertainment we did! Sphere Contortion provided an incredibly nimble, acrobatic circus performance a top her glitter ball, before the Ice Queen and four fabulous Light Dancers immersed themselves amongst the crowd as String Mania sent the crowd wild. What a Christmas party!
But it was not over yet because everyone was (in the words of Paul McCartney) simply having a wonderful Christmas time. How best to continue the celebrations? Beatvox. Oh yes, this incredibly talented a cappella beatboxing outfit entertained the assembled crowd with a stunning medley of pop hits. The crowd barely had time to catch their breath before Hand Fulla Soul took to the stage to round out the night with an incredible repertoire of hits and more than a few Christmassy numbers!
An incredible night was had by all and we really do have to recommend the Narnia theme for getting everybody into the spirit of Christmas. Still haven't booked your work Christmas party yet? Feel free to check out our brochure and get in touch using the details below.
