The Barbican is making the most of its spectacular conservatory this Christmas with carnival-themed parties.
The Conservatory, which is the largest in the city of London, provides an oasis of calm, creativity and inspiration with its secluded gardens, tropical fish ponds and over 1,800 species of plants, making it a unique location for Christmas parties.
With food created by on-site caterer Searcys, delegates can experience a carnival-inspired feast of exotic dishes served on bamboo from street food stalls. Music and dancing to Latin beats is also included in the Garden Room, adjacent to the Conservatory.
Cocktails will be served on arrival, plus carnival snacks and food stations, three hours of unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks, and a DJ. Organizers can add tropical additions to the packages such as face painters, mixologists and live music via the Barbican’s events team.
“The Barbican’s Conservatory is a special and truly different location for Christmas events,” says Jenny Waller, head of sales at the Barbican. “The balance of the traditional Christmas spirit with the venue’s tropical style adds a wonderful feeling and sense of energy to any party. It is the ideal place for companies to gather, communicate and reflect on the past year’s success stories before looking ahead to 2020.”
The Barbican provides a vibrant and inspiring venue for corporate events, conferences, meetings and entertainment. The venue is capable of holding meetings from 10 to 2,000 delegates in spaces including a concert hall, theaters, a boardroom and conference suites that can accommodate up to 170 delegates and can be adjusted using sound proofed sliding. As part of its wider investment strategy, the Barbican spent £2.2m on a significant refurbishment throughout the center in the summer of 2016 including its Frobisher rooms and Level 4. The focus of the Frobisher refurbishment is designed to create an even stronger connection between the center’s main conference and meeting facilities and its arts spaces.
A world-class arts and learning organization, Barbican pushes the boundaries of all major art forms including dance, film, music, theater and visual arts. Its creative learning program further underpins everything it does. Over a million people attend events annually, hundreds of artists and performers are featured, and more than 300 staff work onsite. The Cty of London Corporation is the founder and principal funder of the Barbican Centre. For more info, visit Barbican.
