Dickensian at Finsbury Square
Step back in time with a magical Dickensian Christmas.
Join us for an exhilarating experience in our stunning alpine wonderland in the heart of The City, as you leave the city behind and enter into our luxurious alpine lodge. Twenty-foot Christmas trees tower overhead and fabulous copper chandeliers cascade down upon this luxurious scene. Gather together around huge roaring log fires and recline with ice-cold drinks on leather chesterfields draped in thick fur throws. Move upstairs to watch blizzards of snow cascading over the alpine bars, and soak up the luxurious scene as canapés are passed amongst the guests.
Then comes the reveal as the curtains open onto the spectacular dining hall, glistening with giant mirror balls, shimmering candelabras, a stunning starlit ceiling and giant icicles. Under the luxurious warming glow, three beautifully designed courses are served. Between dishes, you will be stunned by our spectacular après show, where talented dancers and acrobats will leave you amazed, before you take to the dance floor yourself as the DJ starts their set. The combination of stunning theming, delicious food and incredible entertainment will ensure this is the après-ski party of the year.
Please see suggested timeline below; you will be able to tailor your timings to you and your guests’ requirements with your dedicated Account Manager.
Guests will be welcomed into Finsbury Square where they can mingle among the stunning set and enjoy a glass of sparkling wine until dinner is called.
