Before the Winter Circus arrives the buzz begins. Is it a rumour or is it true? The stories of the travelling party, the glamour, the excitement, the intrigue and the Northumberland Bros. themselves - could they really be coming after all? It’s not known for sure, but we wouldn’t want you to miss it for the world. Depending on your party style, The Ballroom is perfect for 100-700 guests.
The story goes that this menagerie of stars, entertainers and acts all following the famous Northumberland Bros. float into town and set up for a single night. The next morning they’re gone, without a whisper or shadow to show for it. Nobody truly knows how you know, but the truth is that we have our sources and word is that tonight’s the night….
They say it’s like stepping back in time, to a bygone era filled with shimmering fabrics, heavy scents and unknown luxury. It’s a whirlwind of anticipation. A cloaked atmosphere with haze and gauze hiding shows and secrets, all awaiting you in The Ballroom.
Fabrics are heavy, the colour palette is muted monochromes with highlights of deep red, rich yellow and flashes of light. Things are not quite what they seem, they’re quirky and different, almost not of this world, most certainly not from this town.
Entertainment is in the air – snippets of shows, voices like silk, hidden areas to capture the magic on film. The tables are adorned, the décor seems accidental and ephemeral yet completely deliberate.
This is said to be a night like no other, truly remarkable and utterly unforgettable, you can sense the buzz all around. It’s so good, is it possible that it was in fact just a dream?
