Immersive Christmas Parties
Updated: Oct 29, 2019
We are all looking for a piece of escapism these days, especially in our busy capital, so we invite you to make your wildest dreams reality this festive season! Whether taking one of London’s many and varied immersive experiences exclusively for a night or creating your own bespoke production, the options are endless – with the only limits being your imagination : )
From theatrical extravaganzas, intricate sets and decadent sensory dining to 360 cinematic experiences and futuristic VR thrills that transport you to another word, immersive experiences are exponentially on the rise and are becoming a whole lot more accessible. The fascination for the genre has been growing over the past few years and it’s safe to say most event organisers are keen to involve their guests in a genuinely interactive way.
Hosted in cavernous warehouses, hidden arches and underground vaulted enclaves, guests might be led through a series of rooms by a team of incredible performers to explore this mysterious territory examining trinkets and observing multi-layered elements within the scene. Perhaps they are privy to an intimate dialogue, piquing their curiosity and being drawn into the action or perhaps they choose to take play voyeur, absorbing the performance and detailed design.
There are plenty of happenings to dive into this year… Snuggle up with a view of the London skyline as popular rooftop haunt Savage Garden transforms into a Narnia-themed treasure trove or why not hire your very own Speigeltent at festive retreat Winterville with cabaret performances, fairground rides and your own private movie screening with accompanying theatrics. Take in all the wonder of winter whilst sipping on mulled wine and sampling festive fare from fabulous food traders.
Looking to transport your guests a little further a field (in their imaginations of course) – host your holiday party at Christmas in New York in iconic Battersea Evolution. What says Christmas more than the Big Apple? Make your way through the snow filled streets as the scent of warm chestnuts fills the air as bellhops welcome guests with a themed cocktail before the Broadway themed dining room is revealed.
For something more traditional, take your guests back in time for a Dickensian Christmas and dance amongst the chimney sweeps before feasting on a traditional Christmas banquet underneath a starlit ceiling in Finsbury Square.
For those in search of something a little more futuristic, why not board the Gingerline – guests will be transported on a sensory experience and invited to play with their food on The Grand Expedition. Aeronauts and will be taken on a collective journey around the world using animation and 350 degree projection, set design, dance and food.. book as part of a shared party or be bold and embark on a full takeover!
Aures is offering the City’s first full five sense immersive space for arts & events with the subterranean vaults of Waterloo transformed into the enchanted Arctic Express to whisk guests away on a fantastical train journey via the stylish romance of Paris and Christmas markets of Berlin to party the night away under the breath-taking Northern Lights of Lapland. Such real-world experiences add depth and dimension to your event and even have a transformational quality, delivering magic and heart to audiences by coupling traditional actor led storytelling with pioneering effects and technologies.
Highly visual and often a complete sensory indulgence, they replicate worlds and recall nostalgic memories, offering an incredible array of shared conversation starters for work colleagues looking to break the ice.
As well as pre-existing offerings, we would be delighted to assist in creating a totally bespoke theme for your celebration, focusing on your audience and any key objectives to build a multi-layered world for guests to explore.
Whether inspired by a favourite literary tale, filmic production or something entirely new, we will find the perfect backdrop before building a tailored set design and performance proposal to really bring the concept to life.. with extra special personal touches adding your own flair and unique twists.
