Some of our preparations for Covid safe venue

As indoor cloakrooms are not allowed we have built an outside cloakroom under a covered walkway. We have dozens of table screens to safely split people into their social bubbles, several hand sanitising stations, multiple H&S signs, masks and screens for all staff. NHS test + trace data will be captured via the QR code displayed on entry. If you don’t have a smart phone don’t worry as our booking system will have contact details for all bookings which also covers it. 

Your data will never be used for any other reason.


We are licensed for 200 but to adhere to social distancing rules we are only taking shared bookings for up to 55. We are doing the best we can in these tricky and often confusing times, please help us keep your guests and our team safe. Our normal opening and closing times may vary due to C-19 regulations. Above all we are 100% committed to host enjoyable and safe evenings. 

To the right are our normal evening timings which we hope we can stick to but it all depends on the govt's tiered approach. If we are forced to operate under the same tier we were under before the recent lock down we shall have to change to these timings:

Evening Schedule

5.00  Gates open

5.20  The fortune telling Whispering Chair and Haunted Cellar Tours begin

5.30  Wandering Close up Magicians 

6.30  Dinner is served

8.00  Showtime with special guest opening act(s) 

9.15  Drinks and after show chilling

11.00  Venue closes. Thankyou and goodnight


Whichever the case we can confirm a 100% lock-down money back will be guaranteed. 


Thank you for your interest.

A Typical Shared Evening...

Email us at to book your unforgettable Christmas Party at the House of Magic


Venture into a world of mystery and sublime fantasy into an infinitely memorable venue hidden in a secret location about a mile from the Palace of Westminster.

7.00pm Gates open 

Guests enter through The Enchanted Garden, an ancient woodland glade dominated by a haunted castle ruin.  The eerie echo of chirping crickets & howling wolves wafts gently in the breeze…


Guests emerge from the cold winter night into the splendour of The Red Room, where our fully stocked bar is located and warm themselves by a real log fire.

7.10pm The Whispering Chair & Cellar Tours begin

Fifteen minute tours of hysterically funny The Spooky Cellar commence in small groups, hosted by our eccentric butler and enticing vampire. They guide the guests through the spooky phenomena and strange happenings in the oldest part of the building, featuring a comedic send-up of a garish and silly Santa's Grotto. These very funny tours continue till 9.45pm. Meanwhile, in The Auditorium over by our stunning Christmas Tree, guests are individually invited to sit on The Whispering Chair and allow the invisible soothsayer to predict their fortune. (Please wear a mask in the cellar for your own and our staff's safety).
