Experience a Christmas party like no other as you enter a world of glitz, glamour and pure Hollywood drama.

A lavish affair awaits at newly opened venue

Welcome to

Vintage Christmas in Tinseltown

The stars of Old Hollywood knew how to party.

From the glitzy fashion to the glamorous venues, these were some of the most memorable parties of all time. And the Academy Awards After-Show parties had to be the ultimate invitation.

This Christmas, feel like a VIP as we recreate the best of the past with a modern twist, giving you and your guests the chance to celebrate with your team at the most sought after, exclusive ticket in town.

Lights, camera, action – let’s get this party started!

What an action filled night it will be at this vintage Hollywood styled party.

As guests arrive at 73 Waterloo, its majestic pillars will be vibrantly lit with a red carpet laid out to create an entrance suitable for any star.

Once inside, guests will be welcomed into the Piano Bar for a drinks reception before making their way into the vast Lounge & Bar for entertainment and a choice of seated dinner or stand up reception.

Later, our talented DJ will mix up a superb array of tunes – guaranteed to get everyone dancing underneath the soaring 8-metre high ceiling.

And of course, if you’d like to incorporate an awards presentation, we can add this on top of your package – maybe you’d like to present some of your staff with their very own Oscar!

Hollywood Thrills

Curate your own evening with a choice of entertainment.

Included in your package is either a reception pianist, magician or silhouettist but if you’d like to further enhance the evening, an 1950s inspired entertainment directory is available to personalise your party.

Our performers are all dressed in exquisite costume, with extraordinary storytelling and performance skills that will entertain and engage your guests.

Taking inspiration from the glamour of a 1950s Hollywood party, our acts perform up-close & personal, between tables, above & around you.

You can make it as immersive as you like – or not!

Perhaps you’d like a toe-tapping doorman or feather-adorned hosts to welcome guests? Or some glitter brusherettes to give guests a sparkling glow-up and an immersive Movie Director to get guests mingling?

How about some show-stopping performers including showgirls, aerialists, contortionists or musicians featuring everything from rat pack, jazz to showtime. There’s plenty to choose from to suit your company’s culture.

Culinary Delights

With a menu created by Bovingdons Caterers, expect culinary delights with a touch of 1950s America.

On arrival guests will be welcomed with a Pink Kiss cocktail, Prosecco and Mocktails.

Our flexible Christmas package means you can choose from bowl food, canapes or three-course seated dinners, enabling you to create either a formal or more laid-back affair.

A remarkable setting for a memorable night

The magnificent Grade II listed 73 Waterloo provides a breath-taking setting for your Christmas celebrations. Be the first to experience its grandeur, as following a recent multi-million renovation this incredible blank canvas church is available for the first time in 2023 for Christmas party hire.

You’ll celebrate Christmas in one of London’s most important historic and leading sustainable venues, situated just a stone’s throw from Waterloo station.

Hire of the venue also means you’ll be supporting work with young and unemployed people and people with experience of homelessness.
