The Hacienda nightclub was an institution of a music scene dominated by luminaries such as New Order, The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays. The Smiths before and Oasis after it ensured that Manchester’s musical legacy well and truly cemented itself in the history books and became famous the world over. Although now sadly defunct, the spirit and culture fostered by this iconic venue nonetheless lives on. A similar trend has begun to emerge amongst this year’s Christmas parties in Manchester.
A cursory glance through the huge list of amazing events we are fortunate enough to be promoting this festive season reveals details of such Christmas parties as the Venetian Carnivale, To Russia With Love, Party Like A Rockstar and Dinner With Michael Buble. All of these party nights come loaded with live entertainment, an explosion of sound and colour punctuating each and every one. Fabulously decorated Christmas party venues provide the perfect backdrop for the madness to unfurl.
It would only be right to begin by summarising the Party Like A Rockstar event. Held in a venue capable of seating 2500 revellers, this magical event presents a truly immersive Manchester Christmas party experience, a far cry from the standard dinner and dance. A glass of Champagne and canapés kick things off in style and the culinary delights continue with live cooking stations serving Asian and Italian food, with a Christmas party twist of course! With an array of fairground rides, games and stalls including laser clay pigeon shooting and the famous waltzer, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to entertainment. Sit back later and let the pros take care of things with aerial silks, trapeze artists and fire breathers. Not forgetting the musical side of things, Rockaoke allows you to sing along to a live band up onstage. Can you overcome those nerves to party like a rockstar?
The list of Christmas party nights taking place in Manchester in 2011 has astounded even us and we have a sneaking suspicion that this festive season is shaping up to be the best yet. Get in there before they’re gone!
