After a year that saw many events postponed, UEFA Euro 2020, the Olympics and even Christmas, The Mermaid London has bought back the festivities with its 2021 Christmas theme of ‘City Lights’.

The City Lights theme will dazzle and impress event bookers and guests with spectacular lighting showcasing London’s iconic city lights. The theme will encompass every corner of the venue’s River Rooms, which includes the Upper River Room, Lower River Room and Queenhithe, and is available for parties from 80 to 500 guests.

This year, The Mermaid London has launched its City Lights lunchtime party package, which includes four hours room hire, a glass of bubbles on arrival and a two-course seated lunch. Prices start from £55+VAT*.

Alicia Duncan, Venue Director at The Mermaid London, commented: “After a year of zoom meetings and dreaded virtual quizzes, we can’t wait to welcome guests back to The Mermaid London so they can reconnect with their colleagues and celebrate Christmas once again. After a Christmas that never was, we are bringing the WOW factor to our festivities, from the décor to the food as we have partnerships with the UK’s leading event caterers and event production companies, Kudos and White Light.”

Guests will be welcomed with a glass of bubbly on arrival and can enjoy a three-course meal with all the trimmings, with the opportunity to add a package for unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks. Bookers can also add on party extras including canapés, an additional course, cheeseboards, light night snack, spirit drinks packages, photographer and a live band.

Christmas packages start from £55+VAT for lunchtime events, £95+VAT for receptions and from £104+VAT for seated dinners.*
