If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise...
Fantastical creatures. A glimmering indoor forest. And booze — lots of it (including free prosecco). Welcome to Winterland, a spellbinding immersive pop-up at the People's Park Tavern. The East End pub, which our readers once voted best in Hackney, has gone all out for its festive celebrations and conjured up a fairy tale world on the edge of Victoria Park.
You're invited inside for an unforgettable party in celebration of winter — the best season of all, according to your host, Squowl. This squirrel-owl hybrid is joined by some equally magical companions, including a rabbit made of ice and snow, a Jibberlock (that's a wizard to you and I), and the regally-robed Slyvana who has set up a makeshift den in the beerbox.
Escape the cold and let this rag-tag band regale you with their dreams of an eternal winter as you sip mulled wine, a festive cocktail, or your favourite IPA and thaw out by the fire. Outside, The Greenhaus, which occupies the boozer's legendary beer garden during the colder months has transformed into the Willow Woods, featuring fluffy clouds, fairy lights, and emerald green foliage. As well as being a pretty darn magical place to whet your whistle, it's basically heaven for Instagrammers.
Whether you're popping in for quick drink, a festive roast, or planning a festive knees-up to remember, Winterland at The People's Park Tavern has got you covered this Christmas.
The Jibberlock has sprinkled his magic on the pub's whimsical function room, which caters for up 80 people and is a perfect choice for the office do. Three course Christmas dinners with all the trimmings are on offer, and the winter buffet menu is a great choice for larger parties.
Naturally, there's a cracking selection of drinks on offer, and we've snagged some free ones exclusively for our readers. Enjoy a free prosecco reception when you make a birthday booking. Just pop the promo code PARTYPEOPLE into the comments field to claim your complimentary glass of fizz.
All in all, it's a brilliant excuse to get the gang together for some outlandish festive revelry, so head on down and raise a glass to the spirit of Winterland.
