The infamous Hackney Christmas Party is now in its 16th year. Started and still presented by Simon Precilla as a means to truly represent colleagues in an unofficial capacity, news of the great value and atmospheric events spread far beyond its origins and the various events have entertained in the region of 20,000 patrons! Originally taking place in the Ocean music venue (now the Picture House Cinema) after the said venues’ closure, the Hackney Christmas Party went on to grace various venues in Hackney including both prestigious Stoke Newington and Hackney Town Halls. 2018 marks the events’s return to the Starlight Suite which hosted the last two events and the intimate setting has earned rave reviews. In our humble opinion there are very few christmas parties in the UK that offer so much for so little. New caterers enter the fray this year in the shape of award winning Wedding specialists Palm Tree Catering. Throw in Simon’s generous five complimentary drinks included in all ticket options, not to mention a PA from Reggae Star Peter Hunnigale (dinner only) music from resident Djs plus special guests Special Touch.
