Decemberfest, a series of new Christmas parties hosted at the HMV Empire in Coventry combines Bavarian-style food and drink, party bingo, live oompah music and more.

October may be over, but a new Christmas party coming to Coventry is bringing a Bavarian-style, festive celebration to the city centre. 

Decemberfest is a brand-new event that offers German-style steins, beer and food, in the same way as Oktoberfest, but with a live oompah band, festive music, party bingo, games and prizes.

Visitors are being encouraged to dress in lederhosen or their best Christmas jumpers, before taking a seat at their bench for a night of food, drink and entertainment. The organisers have even procured The London Street Band, who have appeared on TV, on Channel 4’s Big Fat Quiz of Everything.

Decemberfest, a shared Christmas Party, is an Oktoberfest-themed celebration, combined with festive elements. Pickled Bingo is a party bingo created in the West Midlands, which features multiple games and rounds, crazy prizes and raunchy humour.

Dave Brayley, one of the owners of HMV Empire, said, “It’s very exciting to be hosting these three festive events at the HMV Empire this Christmas, we’re really looking forward to it and hope to make it a regular thing.”

Organiser Annu Panchal, from Hoola Events, a local business that specialises in event management, said: “We’re very excited to be bringing Pickled Bingo back to Coventry. It’s bigger and better than ever, and the prizes are very crazy, but we’re keeping them a surprise.”

Tickets are available to book through HMV Empire or by going online - with private tables available for large groups. The venue will be decorated in a festive, Bavarian style, with long benches and tables for guests.
