About High Society - Christmas 2008

Exclusive parties are available at this venue.

55 Exhibition Road is an elegant listed building located in the heart of Kensington, a perfect setting to recreate an evening evocative of the 1920's high society. Guests are welcomed through the magnificent entrance into the classically lit reception. With a chic black and white Christmas tree and beautiful twinkling pea lights entwined through the iron banister, the venue has an immediate festive feel. As you arrive into the large ballroom trays of sparkling wine will be offered and guests can relax and enjoy a glass of fizz as live Jazz music is played reminiscent of a time when the Charleston was widely popular. Chandeliers hang above, drawing eyes to the magnificent high ceilings and fantastic architecture. Guests will be called to enjoy a three-course dinner in the intimate dining room. Black and white movies will flicker on the screen featuring great stars of the time such as Greta Garbo and Cary Grant. The disco and DJ will then entertain your guests ensuring they end the evening with lasting memories of a fantastic Christmas party fitting of the aptly named 'Roaring Twenties'!
