We’ve had some really exciting times at The Brook over the last few weeks. For the first in history, we transformed the venue into a beautiful Alpine Lodge with cosy cushions, throws and magical fairy lights, inviting merry revelers from far and wide to join us in celebrating all things Christmas.
B&Q, Hampshire Wildlife Trust, Duke Readings Groundworks, Gattica and Southampton Airport all chose The Brook to party the night away, having fun with our in house DJ, light up dance floor, Après ski games, retro ski lift photo booth and SNOW!
They loved our hot buttered rum (we did too), home made, spicy mulled wine and delicious Pieminister Christmas pies freshly baked in our very own kitchen, served with an abundance of festive trimmings. Christmas wouldn’t be the same without pigs in blankets and we didn’t disappoint!
We carried the party on outside with a sparkly marquee for shelter from the winter weather and served up street food for our bigger parties.
People were happy…
“We had our works Christmas party at The Brook and it was amazing. The staff couldn’t do enough to help out with everything. We did presentations and games before everyone had a festive pie and all the trimmings. Then stayed into the evening when it became a 70’s disco. Everyone loved it, thank you so much we will certainly be booking next year.” Josie Hughes ~ Gattica
Over the year we’ve got overly excited about screening fabulous films and sing alongs, creating a relaxed cinema with comfy sofas for family and friends to enjoy.
Two highlights were the sell out ‘Greatest Showman’ and ‘Grease’. In full fancy dress, big singing voices, popcorn and hotdogs ~ we still don’t know who had more fun, the kids or the grown ups!
So to finish the year on a movie high, The Brook threw an Elf Extravaganza film party followed by a dance off with Shush Silent Disco! You had to be there to understand what a room full of people dressed as Elves look like dancing with headphones on to different music!! An absolute blast!!
“It was so much fun!! Can’t wait til the next one xx” ~ Anna Brander
“Loved it and I really didn’t think I would!!! Such good fun” ~ Liz Kerr
“We had a great afternoon, thank you” ~ Paula Cooper
We still have a whole weekend of festive treats coming up over the weekend as well as Rufus Stone welcoming in the New Year, so there is still time for you to take a peek at our snowy lodge and feel some festive vibes before it has to melt away in the New Year… but it will be back with bells on!!
And who knows what The Brook will be up to next! Keep an eye out for very exciting adventures coming up in 2019!!
Happy Christmas everyone. Thanks for your ongoing support and love for the venue. It means so much and we will see you all very soon.
