A scenic Christmas at Glaziers Hall

By Lucia Cappiello

Located next to the capital’s iconic London Bridge, events venue Glaziers Hall will be transformed into a forested winter wonderland for its 2019 Christmas parties.

Beginning on 26 November and running through to 20 December 2019, Glaziers Hall is the place to celebrate the festive season this year. Arriving at Glaziers Hall, guests will be transported from the streets of central London to a fantastical winter scene. Tall snow-capped fir trees will transform the entrance foyer and a beautifully bold archway will lead to the venue’s labyrinth of event spaces.

In partnership with Swan About, one of Glaziers Hall’s preferred catering suppliers, Wild Event Productions will sprinkle the Christmas spirit throughout the venue. There’ll be sparkling eucalyptus and vibrant baubles framing the floor-to-ceiling windows in the River Room; a frosted effect in the Banqueting Hall, with large white tress and branches adorned with twinkling LED lights in hanging glass baubles, alongside white florals, red berries and draped faux pearls; and down in the venue’s newest space, the London Bridge Arches, Wild Event Productions will create a magical pathway through a fir and eucalyptus archway with a festively decorated stairway, and once arrived at the underground Arches, floral garlands will pop against the exposed Georgian stonework and wine barrel poseur tables.

Christmas party organisers can choose from a variety of packages including private dining, private drinks receptions and standalone events in the London Bridge Arches. Celebrate with colleagues while looking out to stunning views of the City of London from the River Room; larger groups can host welcome drinks there before moving on to the Banqueting Hall for a delicious Christmas-inspired meal and ending the evening with dancing and revelry, with entertainment provided by Event Designers.

Private drinks can be held in either event spaces, for up to 300 guests in the Banqueting Hall, 150 guests in the River Room or up to 450 guests for exclusive use of the venue. Down in the unique London Bridge Arches, you’ll enjoy your very own private entrance, with its own floral archway and festively dressed staircase before you enter the contemporary space.

Private dining includes a glass of prosecco upon arrival, a three-course dinner with half a bottle of wine, followed by coffee and petit fours, DJ and dancefloor, plus theming, security and use of a cloakroom, from £164 per person in the River Room (60-100 guests) and from £144 per person for use of both the River Room and Banqueting Hall (100-200 guests).

Drinks reception packages are from £89pp, and include unlimited drinks with canapes and bowl food, instead of a three-course meal with drinks.

Christmas events at the London Bridge Arches are from £121 per person for the dinner package and £129 per person for the reception package. For exclusive use of the Arches space, room hire is from £1,750 for up to 100 guests with your own caterer, a DJ and dance floor can be added for £650.
