Neo-Victorian Fantasy Themed Xmas Party

Enter the Victorian Splendour of this incredible building and step back into history to a time when adventurous explorers return in this Steampunk inspired, eclectic mash-up of old-world meets new combining stunning architecture with ultra-modern production.

Admire the ornate and beautiful Christmas Trees dressed in antique Victorian decorations whilst enjoying our wonderful canapés.

Our life-size Phileas Fogg Hot Air Balloon rises from the dancefloor to call our guests through to the dining room with original Steampunk architecture, with our enormous, brass and sepia-toned chandelier. Our vintage street performers and Victorian Strongman acts are interspersed with stunning, world-class acrobatics whilst you enjoy a gourmet, four course dinner.

After dinner, flutter in our star-lit casino or simply dance the night away to our fantastic DJ.

So join us this year for an unforgettable night - Christmas Parties in West Sussex don’t get better than Steampunk Christmas extravaganzas!
