EXCLUSIVE CHRISTMAS PARTIES

Dickensian at Finsbury Square

Step back in time with a magical Dickensian Christmas.

Enter the world of Christmas Past with Smart’s Dickensian Christmas party. Set amongst streets that Dickens himself would once have walked, the soft glow of gas lamps catches the eye as visitors turn into Finsbury Square. Christmas carols fill the air as your guests enter the enticing secret den, where they’ll shake the snow off their coats and take in the nostalgic sights and sounds of a Victorian Christmas. They’ll then gather together and start the night amongst bustling scenes inspired by London past, sipping drinks and soaking up the atmosphere.

Aromas of cinnamon, pine and chestnuts fill the air as the doors to the magnificent main dining area open for a festive feast. Your guests will then take their seats amongst all the splendour of the finest Victorian ballrooms under a canopy of stars and lanterns. They’ll enjoy a three-course dinner or bowl food menu of sumptuous food and wine, immersing themselves in a Victorian playground of spectacle and surprise, before taking to the dance floor as the DJ starts their set.
