AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS
EXPERIENCE ALL FOUR CORNERS OF THE GLOBE IN THE HEART OF WILLOWS FARM.
Let your guests’ imagination soar and make like Phileas Fogg as they explore our Christmas party at Willows Farm. We will take them from ancient Egypt, via the souks of Marrakech and ornate temples of Japan, to the snowy hills of Kathmandu. Your guests can expect an exciting and eclectic mix of the best food, drink and entertainment the world has to offer as we take them on an exhilarating journey. From the moment they approach the entrance, guarded by huge monkey lions and lit by fire pits and sconces, a sense of anticipation is created.
They’ll then gather for drinks and canapés and enjoy the buzz of this multi-cultural spectacle. As they’re welcomed into the main dining area, they’ll marvel at a riot of colourful hot air balloons floating alongside bi-planes and colourful parasols. They’ll feast on delicious food and drink by Moving Venue, before they take to the dance floor as the DJ starts their set. Your guests will experience a riot of colour, sights and sounds as we bring them the best the world has to offer.
