Get merry at the T-VINE Christmas Party

If you’re looking for the perfect way to celebrate this festive season, then book your place at the T‑VINE Christmas Party at Cyprus Garden on Sunday 21 December. This cabaret-style dinner and variety show offers a unique mix of English and Turkish entertainment, making it the ideal fun environment for all the family, friends or the annual office Christmas Party.

T-VINE is the UK’s first and only English language magazine for British Turks. The bi-monthly publication held its glittering debut at the same venue last Christmas. They return with another superb line-up of music, comedy, dance, dinner and plenty of festive treats.

Comedy pair Eray & Koray will again host this year’s shenanigans. Our very own ‘Kıbrıslı Boys’ will be working the crowd with their charm and wit, and perhaps a bit of singing if you’re unlucky.

Headlining this year’s party is Turkish Pop princess Peri Aziz. Formerly of chart-topping group Babutsa, Peri will be singing covers of Turkey’s biggest hits that are guaranteed to get diners on their feet. 

She is supported by Cyprus Garden’s house band Huseyin Cemgünal (keyboard) and Ercüment İbrahim (violin), who will also play an early evening set of traditional uplifting Turkish and Cypriot songs to get everyone in the party spirit.

Keeping them on the dance floor will be Ali Köse (pictured left), whose sensational singing powered him to the quarter-finals of O Ses Türkiye (The Voice). He promises a night of uplifting British and American Soul and Pop, blending familiar tracks such as Pharell’s Happy with his own songs.

Who needs Turkish coffee for fal (fortune reading) when Destiny will be pulling into Cyprus Garden? Ten lucky guests at the Christmas Party will experience a private comedy show courtesy of Hakbrayne – the world’s first Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee tribute act. Their motor home of mystery offers a totally psychedelic, bonkers, immersive comedy theatrical experience.

And that’s not all! No Turkish party would be complete without bellydancing. The delightful Melisa Yavaş will be performing her hip-thrusting, sword-twirling show. 

Our thigh-stomping finale is courtesy of DJ Elliot Patterson. His party classics will keep everyone dancing late into the night.

  2. I really like to attend parties on Christmas Eve. This Christmas our company threw a grand party at one of corporate events Chicago. It was really awesome and entertaining. The party was made entertaining by event planners.
