Afternoon tea is all the hype these days but what about a topsy turvy themed event with a twist – why not bring Alice in Wonderland or the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party where you are.

The Great Hall at Birmingham University could not have been a more perfect venue for a Harry Potter Themed Event, with the exception of Hogwarts itself. Eventologists gave this superb Birmingham Venue, the wizardry touch with hanging house banners, Wooden tables and benches, cobweb cauldrons smoking on the tables along with potions in test tubes… Guests were greeted by Harry Potter and Dumbledore in the reception, whilst a string quartet were softly playing the enchanting Harry Potter soundtrack of course wearing traditional house scarves…
Dumbledore’s announcement came and the doors to the Great Hall opened as the smoke came tumbling out, candles were suspended in mid-air as if floating over the tables which were laid for dinner. The “Hedwig’s Theme” blasted out amongst the dramatic lighting, if that wasn’t cool enough, walking into space was like being transported to the Great Hall in Hogwarts Castle…. The magic carried on with Hedwig (Harry’s Owl) delivering the speech for the MD…..If you want a Harry Potter Party Theme, contact our events team on 07973 540799.
“We engaged Deborah and her team to help our firm plan a “Harry Potter” themed event at the Great Hall, Birmingham University for around 500 guests. Deborah was a delight to work with. She clearly has an extensive knowledge and expertise in her field, and we always felt that we came first to her. She understood exactly what we wanted to achieve, and worked to bring our vision together, on time and on budget. Her team worked extremely hard to make sure our event ran smoothly – working from 6am of the day of the event until 3am the next day. They were all organised, efficient and very helpful. We would recommend Eventologists to any other corporate outfit looking to host an event.
