Enter a land full of wonder, mystery and danger, where you’ll need to be as mad as a hatter!

To mark the 150th anniversary of the Lewis Carroll classic, Hype Agency returns to Cheltenham this Christmas to transform Cheltenham Town Hall into a topsy turvy land of tomfoolery and madness with its Alice in Winterland, Curiouser and Curiouser Christmas party nights.


Following the sell-out success of its 2014 Nutcracker-themed parties, from Friday 11 to Friday 18 December, the Bristol-based party specialists are promising an even bigger and better festive celebration for local businesses and groups of friends, with entertainment, dinner and endless possibilities all included.


Just like Alice, party-goers will need to drink a welcome potion upon arrival to shrink into the magical world where nothing is quite as it seems, and celebrate the season with beloved characters including The Queen of Hearts, Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter.


Once inside Winterland, they too will need to ask themselves “Which road do I take?” although it doesn’t matter really, as all paths have no end!


Guests can believe as many as six impossible things before dinner, with magical themed entertainment and photo booth, but be careful not to cross the ‘Queen of Hartini’ cocktail at the rose garden bar, or it will be “off with your head!”


Tables will be dressed fit for the Mad Hatter’s tea party and laid out will be a scrumptious two or three-course dinner crafted from fresh local, seasonal ingredients by award-winning in-house caterers, Fosters Events, before the tea and coffee station opens and madness unravels before guests’ very eyes - and feet - in the disco.

When you wake up the following morning you will wonder if it was all just a dream…


Event Director, Gemma Box, said: “We’re thrilled to be returning to Cheltenham Town Hall with the Alice in Winterland Christmas parties, especially during the milestone 150th anniversary of the release of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.


“Available for exclusive hire and shared parties, the Alice in Winterland nights are perfect for large businesses and even smaller groups of friends, family members and colleagues to relive their childhood memories and celebrate Christmas in magical - or mad - style!


“Some nights have already sold out so I would urge anyone wanting to come to book their tickets now to avoid disappointment, and join us on this magical journey down the rabbit hole with a festive twist!”


Whether you’re looking to celebrate with a handful of people or hundreds, there’s capacity for up to 450 at Cheltenham Town Hall. Tickets cost from £30 plus VAT per person, with a minimum booking of eight. The parties from Saturday 12 to Monday 14 December have now sold out but there is still availability for the remaining nights.


So don’t be late or you will miss out on this very important date! Call Hype Agency on 0117 971 0320, email or visit to book your tickets now.
