Best Parties Ever, the UK’s largest Christmas party provider, has announced that it is expanding its portfolio by launching in Belfast this Christmas, taking its famed festive parties to South 13 Belfast (S13) (The former B&Q Building), on the Boucher Road, a pioneering social enterprise and regeneration project under the stewardship of Square Pit Productions.
Best Parties Ever, part of Eventist Group, is thrilled to be expanding into Northern Ireland offering both shared and exclusive Christmas party packages for businesses and teams from 10 to 600 guests. The expansion into the Northern Irish Market will create 150 jobs in the hospitality and entertainment sectors, to include waiting staff, back of house staff, security, food handlers, bar staff, event managers, chefs, porters and bar managers.
In addition to announcing the exciting launch, the party provider, known for its opulent festive extravaganzas, has revealed the inaugural theme for the first season of parties at (S13) will be ‘Masquerade Ball’.
This year’s theme encompasses authentic renaissance grandeur by taking guests to a Venetian-inspired ball for a night of indulgence, illusion and intrigue. Highlights of the evening include a charity casino with blackjack and roulette, dodgems, living statues, aerial acrobats and spectacular theming and scenery.
Packages include delicious hot and cold canapes, a superb three course meal, a cheese buffet and a survivor’s breakfast as well as a variety of drinks packages for guests to enjoy.
Best Parties Ever hosted a press and corporate event at Q HQ, which was broadcast on the Home Run Drive-time show by Q presenter Ryan A. Guests were treated to canapés, cocktails from the internationally acclaimed cocktail team Soda and Ryan from Blaklist bar and guests also enjoyed music from local singer songwriter Michael Kerr, who has recently launched his new EP Treasure Chest.
Now operating in 23 cities across the UK and Ireland, Best Parties Ever contributes to the regional economy through the generation of local jobs and utilising business services from within each community, serving the 200,000 guests who join the Christmas extravaganza’s each year.
Recognising that Christmas is also a time for giving back, Best Parties Ever adopts a charity partner in each location where it operates and donates the funds raised at the charity casino to a local cause. This year’s nominated charity is Cancer Focus NI.
Jon Noonan, Group Sales Director of Eventist Group (pictured), commented: “We’re thrilled to be announcing our launch in Belfast this year and can’t wait for Christmas 2018.
The Best Parties Ever team is incredibly excited to be collaborating with an exciting new venue in Northern Ireland and building upon the phenomenal success we had last year, and we’re delighted to expand our offering even more. We look forward to raising a glass with all our new guests this Christmas.”
Gary Flynn, Managing Director at South 13 Belfast (S13), said: “This Christmas is going to be a lot of fun at S13 now that we’ve partnered with Best Parties Ever and their Masquerade Ball themed festivities. We are looking forward to working with The Eventist team to create spectacular experiences for the people of Belfast and showcase the fantastic capabilities of our venue.”
To accompany the announcement, Best Parties Ever has also unveiled a new website giving guests the opportunity to fully manage their bookings, email out to their party guests and manage all drinks, dietary requirements and much more, meaning their evening can be planned simply and smoothly from one easy to use portal.
