This Year’s Ultimate Christmas Event Food Menu

Mince pies, turkey, and chocolate log… There’s no doubt that Christmas is all about the food, but as the years go on, it can fall victim to predictability.

While we’re cooking up our festive deals, we’ve partnered with Cleverchefs to create the ultimate Christmas feast that takes advantage of the simplicity of festive favourites without boring your tastebuds!

For 2018, we’re offering a unique and excited package for shared parties. Along with sampling a familiar but unique taste of Christmas, you’ll be able to enjoy exclusive access to our science discovery centre.

Set against the spectacular backdrop of Cardiff Bay and taking place amongst 130 interactive exhibits, get your labcoats ready, as you’ll be able to unleash your inner scientist.

For smaller companies or large departments, shared parties can be the ideal way to celebrate Christmas with your colleagues.

Shared parties allow smaller groups to enjoy the experience of a large scale, high-end party without the need to meet minimum numbers, and at a fraction of the budget required to hire the whole venue yourself.

Over the last few months, we’ve been carefully working with our catering partner to create a menu for these special Christmas celebrations.

By focusing on beloved Christmas main and dessert dishes such as traditional turkey and homemade chocolate tarts, the culinary minds at Cleverchefs have been able to maintain an element of simplicity to provide a culinary experience that can be enjoyed by every guest.

By opting for warming, hearty vegetables as accompaniments Cleverchefs have been able to present a menu that reflects and celebrates the festive season!
