Narnia Christmas Party

Join us in Narnia for a magical Christmas party you will never forget and help support Bristol’s Hospitals. Our friends at Hype Agency are donating £5 from every ticket sold for their Narnia Christmas Party night on Tuesday 20th December at the Passenger Sheds, Temple Meads to Above & Beyond.

Step into the extraordinary world through the doors of an oak wardrobe and find yourself in an enchanted kingdom, with snow underfoot, glistening fir trees and magical creatures. Enter an awe-inspiring wintery wonderland, where mysterious creatures keep a watchful eye and tell tales of the Ice Queen and her fabled powers.

Enjoy a drinks reception under the spotlight of a single street lamp before you’re invited to make your way through the woods to sit down to a three course meal from Hype’s award-winning caterers. Beautifully decorated tables glisten in the twinkling lights as you feast and make merry while the Christmas wonderland truly comes alive. Be entertained by Ice fauns, the Ice Queen and other Narnians and enjoy archery in the woods, a live band and professional DJ.

Tickets are available for the special price of £35 p.p plus VAT.
To book your ticket call Hype Agency on 0117 971 0320 or email info@hypeagency.co.uk and quote ‘Above & Beyond.’
