Events taking place at Upstairs at Cleaver & Wake this year include a glittering New Year’s Eve party which promises a celebration to remember. Marking the perfect way to usher in the new year in style, guests will receive a welcome glass of bubbles upon arrival, followed by a three course meal from a menu created by the chefs at the finer dining restaurant below, Cleaver & Wake.

Guests will then be able to dance the night away until midnight with a selection of the best party tunes from the venue’s resident DJ.

Meanwhile, next year the team already have lots to look forward to, including a romantic Valentine’s weekend performance of Romeo and Juliet from The Royal Shakespeare Company, on 16th February. There’ll also be a special Mother’s Day Charlotte Tilbury makeup masterclass taking place on Friday 8th March, where attendees will learn a few key tips and tricks of the trade, and receive a luxurious Charlotte Tilbury goodie bag to take home.

Liam Morgan, sales events and marketing manager at Upstairs at Cleaver & Wake said: “Cleaver & Wake has built a name for itself for creating luxurious experiences and that’s an ethos we’ve taken into the curation of our new calendar of brilliant events. Since its launch, the event space at Upstairs at Cleaver & Wake has played host to a range of private events, from showstopping balls and breathtaking weddings, to conferences, networking events and more. However, over the coming months, we’ll be hosting a range of special ticketed events which will be open to the public, with something to suit all tastes.

“These will be premium events with a difference. We’ve partnered with some of the region’s most talented individuals to provide treasured moments visitors can share with family, friends and loved ones. We’re really excited to reveal our first wave of events, but watch this space for even more exquisite events still to come in 2024.”
