Hype Agency Lead the Return for a Covid-safe Bristol Christmas…


…With Exclusive Hire of Newly-refurbished The Mount Without and Iconic Winter Garden’s Ballroom

Hype Agency, parented by South West Caterer Fosters Events, are leading the way for best-in-show Christmas celebrations that ensure the safety of both its guests and the hospitality staff who are itching to celebrate this winter season, after forgoing them last year due to lockdown.

After almost 19 months of shutdown, businesses now, more than ever, are looking for ways to reunite their teams and celebrate the resilience and hard work of their employees during the ongoing challenges of the pandemic.

Hype Agency is famous for its all-out, no-expenses-spared, interactive Christmas parties; from ‘The Greatest Show’ inspired soirees in Bristol’s Passenger Shed, to iconic Christmas in New York at Swindon’s Mecca. They are the region’s go-to for top-tier Christmas parties that allow guests to let their hair down and celebrate with a night they won’t forget.

While Hype usually caters for both shared public parties and corporate gatherings, CEO Neil Lodge explained the changes being made this year to ensure that guests get to have their long-awaited Christmas celebrations in a Covid-safe way, that doesn't compromise on the scale and magic of their events:

“Traditionally we work with both shared parties and exclusive parties to bring the magic of Hype’s themed Christmas events to as many people as we can during the winter period. However, it was clear to us that we needed to look at how we were going to run the show this year, in a way that ensured our guests would get that incredible Hype experience, but without placing them in settings that while fun before, in a post-pandemic world, might feel overwhelming and unsafe.”

Neil explains;

“This year we’ve decided to take on two new venues, which have a reduced capacity. This means we can offer businesses and groups exclusive hire for just them and their teams - so there is no worry of people mixing with other businesses allowing them to feel in control of their environment.”

The Mount Without, formerly St. Michael’s on the Mount (Without), will be the exclusive Bristol location for Hype’s exclusive Christmas parties this year, a renowned church on St. Michael’s Hill that has recently undergone extensive refurbishments transforming it into the city’s most magical events and arts space.

Neil adds;

“What’s even more exciting about The Mount Without is that we are going to be the very first to use this new event space in this capacity, meaning that there is an extra dose of magic to what we are creating this year, and our guests will really feel the exclusivity of their party.”

The church itself, which once withstood wartime bombings but was partially decimated by fire over five years ago, has now been given a new lease of life, rising from the ashes to become a true hidden gem in Bristol City Centre.

Wooden beams lift its newly restored roof, creating perfect acoustics and lofty space for styling and decor.

Guests will start their evening with welcome drinks under the incredible heights of The Mount Without, a former church that has survived war-time bombings and devasting fire, rising from the ashes to proudly stand as Bristol’s most unique events space.

Partygoers will then be invited to be seated under 'infinity' for a three-course meal, packed with seasonal ingredients and indulgent flavours while feasting their eyes on a show-stopping secret performance.

Finally, the night will end with guests exploring The Crypt, their own personal underground vault, accented with up lighting, sound tracked by a DJ, and of course, freshly watered by a full bar.

The incredible space can be booked for a run of ten dates across the festive period, starting on Tuesday 7th December until Saturday 18th December, giving guests the choice of what works best for them and their teams.

The Menu:

Expect indulgent and seasonal flavours, such as; Confit chicken with shallot and thyme jus served alongside maple roasted root vegetables and followed by a tantalising dark chocolate mousse with candied bitter orange.

The Setting:

Indulge in both the iconic and historic setting; A mixture of hidden corners and high beams, with mystical uplighting and a grand art installation hanging above your head as you dine. Not to mention The Crypt… Your own personal underground vault where you can dance the night away.

Not the kind to reserve their magic for just a few, Hype will also be hosting an exclusive run of parties at the famous Winter Gardens Ballroom at Weston-Super-Mare.

Re-igniting one of their flagship events, Hype will be bringing the theme’ to life, asking guests to step into the magic of New York at Christmas, with falling snow, bright lights, and untold amounts of glamour.

Guests will look forward to the delights of a sumptuous three-course dining experience under the sparkling stars and enjoy the full and rich flavours of each dish.

They’ll be entertained by magnificent performers inspired by the bright lights of Broadway, before turning to the dancefloor of the historic Ballroom of Weston-Super-Mare’s Winter Gardens, with a flowing bar and specially curated cocktails.

By looking to do things differently this year, Hype Agency is striving to deliver their famous magic to guests but with the promise of total commitment to doing it in the safest way possible, offering clients a space they feel in control of, where they can relax and enjoy their celebrations.

With two of the South West’s most unique events spaces under their belt for an exclusive run of dates in December, they’re already shaping up to deliver on their promise of a show-stopping evening for all.
