Revellers will be treated to a sensory overload with dazzling decor, live music, DJs and walkabout acts all mixed together with seasonal delights such as Christmas cabaret and swing dancing classes. Something to watch, dance and listen to, every which way you turn.
This year’s line-up includes the raucous Glam Rock inspired 21st century party band Fag Junky; and Slady, the world’s ONLY all-female tribute band to legendary 1970’s glam rockers, Slade. Also on the bill is Rod Laver: Oral Ping Ping juggler (has to be seen to be believed), Swing & Bass DJs Fizzy Gillespie & Dan de’Lion with additional DJs from the world’s smallest nightclub, Miniscule Of Sound. Last but not least there’s the Yuletide regulars, Bad Santa & Mental Elf. Compère for the evening is performer extraordinaire, Pete Dobbing.
Formed in 2006, ‘Bo’ as they are affectionally known, have steadily built up a reputation as the go to people for theatrical and sometimes raucous events. As well as producing their own sell-out shows, the Norwich-based business also assist with festivals and corporate events right across the UK.
Founder and producer Helen Stoneley said: “The idea of the Bo Nanafana Xmas Office Party is to offer businesses and individuals alike the opportunity to join in on one big orchestrated bash rather than end up at a lame affair that the company secretary or distant cousin has thrown together. Our way of thinking is that if you’re celebrating Christmas and much-needed time off work, then do it in style and en masse”.
Like all of Bo’s events the rules are just the same. Dress fancy if you fancy, with glam rock attire, power suits or unfashionable Christmas jumpers are all welcome. Party goers are also encouraged to bring a gift for Bad Santa (no more than 50p in value) which will be given to another unknown reveller on the night.
The Bo Nanafana Xmas Office Party takes place at the Talk, Norwich on Saturday 14 December (8-2pm). Tickets (£20 + booking fee) are available online at www.bonanafana.com or in person at Taxi Vintage on the back of Norwich Market and Soundclash on St Benedict’s Street.
