This December, Christmas Party World at Manchester Central hosts the spectacular ‘Zulu Sundance’. The magic of Africa descends over the city’s flagship party venue, bringing an unrivalled level of entertainment, dinner and dance.

The exhilarating sounds and energetic performance of the Tanzanian artists come to Christmas Party World. With their dynamic dance and breath-taking circus acts, their irresistible energy will transform the legendary Christmas party venue into a magical and enticing world.

Guests will be greeted by traditional African drumming and dance against the backdrop of a beautiful rainforest where waterfalls and giant sweeping trees create a truly enchanting experience.

As you move through the venue handcrafted canapés and delicious drinks are served as you begin to explore and decide where to venture first. Grass roofed mud hut bars offer crisp wines and cold beers and the legendary Champagne and cocktail bars create popular concoctions infused with a sprinkling of African magic!

The hustle and bustle of high-spirited conversation fills the air as artists perform in spectacular African costumes with traditional masks, vying for your attention as their infectious energy lights up the room. 

As a dramatic piece of African music summons guests to the Christmas feast, you’re invited to make your way through the giant gates of the African kingdom, emerging in the warmth of the grasslands. Glistening beams of light dance across tables as you take your seats for dinner. The night’s entertainment accelerates as the stage comes to life with powerful rhythmic dance, gravity defying African pole, dance and high-level aerial cirque routines.

Your party shows no sign of slowing down as the DJ and dance floor explode with spirit and verve, bars continue to serve wonderful concoctions, Dodgems, Waltzer, Twist & Miami fairground rides whirr into life, the fun casino tables and fairground stalls compete for your attention, or you can choose to sit in a quieter area and enjoy freshly ground coffee with friends.

As midnight approaches breakfast rolls are served against the vista of twinkling lights and inspiring scenery. The night has been a true part masterpiece – As your party comes to a close, warm memories of a great evening live long… until next year that is!
