Is there a better excuse for dressing to the nines? Welcome to the roaring 20s!

The Great Gatsby Christmas Party in Manchester takes you back in time to the extravagant, glamorous world of the jazz age.

Expect flapper girls, feather boas, the red-hot rhythms of the speakeasy, casino tables… and feathers. Did we mention feathers?

You can leave the Rolls Royce Phantom at home. The Great Gatsby party is right in the heart of Manchester at the iconic 5-star hotel The Edwardian, with great transport links. Or just stay put, relax and book an overnight stay.

What to expect at the Great Gatsby party in Manchester

As you make a grand entrance on the VIP red carpet, our flapper girls are there to greet you. Grab your complimentary glass of fizz, strike a pose for the photos, and preen those feathers.

It’s time to party like it’s 1922!

The doors open to an event space which rivals Jay Gatsby’s mansion. Golden decor, low lighting, twinkling chandeliers and luxurious Art Deco motifs.

Over a delicious 3-course dinner, our live singer performs modern classics… in 1920s style. Name that tune, anyone? And the 20s vintage vibe continues between courses as the flapper girls show off their best Charleston dance moves.

Fancy practising your Charleston swivel? Here’s the full Gatsby girl (and boy) line-up performing on stage in London.

There are 2 flapper dancers at our parties. Just ask if you’d like to upgrade.

Impressive moves! That’s a 10 from Craig Revel Horwood.

The drinks are flowing, dinner has been enjoyed… and the entertainment has only just begun.

The dance floor has now opened. The party band is on stage and it’s time to shake your tail feather. If you fancy taking a break from the dancing, try your luck at the Gatsby-style casino tables or get your bling on with professional glitter face painters.

And don’t forget, you can visit the photo booth as many times as you like. Those photos will remind you of the best Christmas party choice you’ve ever made.

Prefer a private dining room?

If you’d prefer a private dining room, there’s a selection of rooms suitable for the size of your group.

One thing to bear in mind… You’ll miss out on the entertainment over dinner.

The dress code

There’s no dress code because we want you to relax and have a good time. However, if you’re stuck for ideas, here are a few Gatsby-inspired suggestions:

For men:

Black tie is always a good option, especially with a pocket square (folded handkerchief). Alternatively, go for a dark jacket with cream-coloured smart trousers and a straw boater. And how about a side parting?

For women:

We’re talking glamour and elegance. Fringed, beaded and sequined flapper dresses  — black and dark red were popular 20s colours — long black gloves, jewelled and feathered headbands, long strings of pearls.

"West End Events did a fantastic job of organising our work Xmas party which was Great Gatsby themed. They were responsive to requests and queries and always willing to help. The party was a great success with the team enjoying all aspects, especially the entertainment, including a Charleston dance lesson, flapper girls and casino tables."

About the event

Is this a shared event?

Yes, no matter the size of your guest list you’ll have your own tables. You won’t have to share the table with anyone outside your party group.

However…Most of our guests love getting dressed up for this event. We recommend formal attire with immense amounts of glamour, style and panache.

The menu

Will the hotel cater for different dietary requirements? 

Yes they will. Once you’ve booked, we’ll send you a function sheet. Use this to let us know the names and dietary requirements of any guests. We’ll inform the chef so that each person is catered for appropriately.

The only exception to this is Kosher food. This cannot be prepared at the hotel. It comes via a separate caterer and incurs an additional charge. Call us on 020 7183 3821 and we’ll talk you through it.

Booking and admin

How much is the deposit? And when is it due?

To secure your booking, we’ll need a deposit of £35 + VAT per guest. The balance will be due 6 weeks (42 days) before the event.

Can I add additional guests later?

We’ll be as flexible as possible. Please let us know about any changes before 3rd November and we’ll do our best to accommodate them. Provided there is availability, we can add to your booking — although please bear in mind, we can’t guarantee this.

If you want to add guests, contact us on 020 7183 3821 or email [email protected]. We’ll let you straight away if there’s availability. If there’s enough space for additional guests, full payment will be required in order to secure the booking.

The minimum is 8 people. The maximum number for this event is 250.

The Venue
