The Science Museum has revealed its Christmas party package for 2014: The Yuletide Experiment, created in conjunction with Ampersand and Fisher Productions.

The Yuletide Experiment will see the museum’s Energy Hall and Making the Modern World galleries dressed for evening receptions and dinners during the coming 2014 festive season. Event organisers wishing to engage, mystify and delight guests can add experimental elements that take their inspiration from the world of science. For example, guests can inject their canapés with flavour-enhancing syringes, like gin-and-tonic Salmon; down gazpacho shots from test tubes; pimp Prosecco flutes with complementary additional potions; sample Bunsen-Burnt-Chestnuts; or test their taste buds with dessert gels.

The main menu will meet conventional expectations and includes dishes such as velouté with walnut and parsley dumplings; bronze copas roast Christmas turkey with creamed Brussels sprouts, caramelised chestnuts, tarragon and cranberry jus; and Mont Blanc caramel mousse with chestnut mousseline and saffron pear.

The package includes exclusive venue hire; Prosecco on arrival; unlimited wine, beer and soft drinks throughout the evening; a bespoke menu; themed décor and lighting throughout the galleries; DJ and dance floor; cloakroom facilities; and a PA system in the Making the Modern World gallery. The package will be available for groups ranging from 100 to 900+ guests. Prices start from £69 + VAT per person.

Alicia Earls, communications manager for corporate events at the Science Museum, said: “As a unique venue, we want to utilise the ‘wow’ factor of our galleries to the fullest. With Fisher Productions on board and Ampersand creating an experimental menu fit for the museum’s content, we are confident that The Yuletide Experience will provide an unforgettable experience for our guests.”
