THE TEMWA CHRISTMAS PARTY 2019
This Christmas indulge in a festive night,
Of charitable, delicious, fantastical delight!
In the tunnels beneath the city festivities unfold,
Old walls holding secrets of tales untold,
With echoes of curiosity, of old and new,
Don your best attire – we’re inviting you,
To tantalise your tastebuds with a seasonal feast,
As you’re served locally sourced, home made, heart warming treats,
Take a friend by the hand and explore ’til you find,
A musical character who is most refined,
Harking back to an era of jazz and swing,
Fill your ears with fine tunes, give into dancing,
Find magicians, friendly faces and a cause that inspires,
Browse an array of incredible prizes to acquire,
Come together, be merry and know that your act,
Of generosity by being there makes an incredible impact,
So, this Christmas indulge in a festive night,
Of charitable, delicious, fantastical delight
The Loco Klub in itself provides a beautifully atmospheric setting for Temwa’s 2019 Christmas Party, taking place in the tunnels beneath Temple Meads station. With a theme of fantastical delight we encourage you to dress to express – in your own way – a good dose of fancy, festive fun. Ideal for friends, colleagues, fellow freelancers and Temwa supporters old and new!
Your evening includes a glass of bubbly and canapés on arrival, giving you a chance to explore the space and mingle with other guests as you settle in. A banquet style dinner will be served as you take a seat for your main course and dessert – created, cooked and served by the lovely team at Kate’s Kitchen (with the planet and your taste buds in mind). Following on from dinner we’ll host a live auction with an amazing array of prizes to be won, from unique experiences and luxury holidays to hampers and last minute stocking fillers. Then it’s time to take to the dance floor as Jack Calloway and his band fill the arches with jazz and swing, before DJ Michael Vinyl keeps you moving until the party draws to a close and your carriage home awaits…
All funds raised on the evening make a real and lasting impact, helping to empower people in remote communities of Malawi to tackle the root causes of poverty and transform futures. It’s amazing what can happen #WhenCommunitiesComeTogether.

Dinner is served…
A feel good menu in every way! This Christmas, Kate’s Kitchen will be serving a delectable feast, every bite of which is home made with seasonal, locally and sustainably sourced ingredients. Kate’s inspiration comes from her grandmother’s farm house cooking and mother’s home grown fruit and veg as well as her experience of working as a chef in top bistros and restaurants both here in Bristol and New Zealand. Kate and her team are passionate about what they do, committed to supporting local and being kind to the planet at the same time as delivering top quality service and delicious, real food.
Be greeted with canapés on arrival before taking a seat at the banquet table for your main course. Dessert will be served as a shared platter with a generous selection of sweet-tooth pleasing treats.

Jack Calloway & His Dance Band have become nationally known and loved since their humble beginning in Bristol. Now, audiences, especially dancers, cannot get a ticket fast enough to experience their magnificent show. With a forever growing repertoire and forever growing ensemble, Jack Calloway & His Dance Band continue to take the swing and jazz scene by storm.
