Christmas comes early in South Yorkshire

Although it’s only August, more than 4,000 people have already booked on to Magna’s Christmas parties.

The Eat Bump Groove party nights, which run over eight nights in December, are proving to be an increasingly popular alternative for work outings, with around 55,000 people attending over the last decade. Alongside the expected food, drink and disco, attendees are also invited to try their luck at casino games and test their spatial awareness and coordination on dodgems.

Donna Shaw, of Magna, says: “Most people are off on their summer holidays right now, but others obviously like to plan ahead. We get a lot of businesses coming to the Eat Bump Groove events as their works’ Christmas night out year after year. And it is proving more and more popular as word gets out about what a unique night out it is. At this point last year we had sold about 3,500 tickets; now we have sold 4,130. So sales are already higher than last year.”

Magna, which is housed in the former Templeborough steel works near junction 34 of the M1, can also host private Christmas parties and has venue space that can be hired to cater for between 5 and 5,000 people. The Eat, Bump and Groove party nights will run from 4 to 20 December. Tickets are £64.95 per person all-inclusive for all nights, except 17th and 20th December, when they are £54.95.
