Jam Circus Christmas Balloons


You wanna know how you do it? Here's how, they pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That's the Chicago way, and that's how you get Capone! Now do you want to do that? Are you ready to do that?

Jam Circus have responded to the arrival of new kids on the block like The Orchard and The Talbot by raising the bar for Christmas decorations in Brockley with some amazing creations from Miss Ballooniverse. These are just a couple - check out the Flickr stream for more - or better still, go for a drink.

Nick,
Could you do a trawl to find out what the bars are doing for New Year's Eve, with any costs, closing times etc?
I know the Rivoli does a fab old-fashioned knees up (tickets cost £16 a couple of years ago).
I want to be within staggering distance.

Hi Moira

Will see what I can do - I know the Orchard is open on New Year's Eve, charging a very reasonable £5 a head ticket entry.

We were in Jam Circus last night, they are doing a "freaks & fairytales" costume party for new years eve at £10 a head

The balloon decorations are pretty impressive!

My favourites are the Santa that looks like he's been garrotted behind the bar, and the Rudolph who appears to be squeezing out an uncomfortable turd :-) They are brilliant!

Thanks for the post Nick, the balloons were a bit of an impulse thing really having seen Miss Balloniverse working at the Pedlar's Christmas tree concession out of the back of Selfridges!

Nux - we think Rudolf looks more like Christmas roadkill. They're all slowly losing air, except Santa, who was treated with some clever internal balloon glue and should make it through to Xmas. If he doesn't, there'll be no balloon presents for the balloon kids this year.

Oh I hope he makes it - can't have all the inflatable children being let down *boom boom* :-)

The Talbot is doing a three course meal with a glass of champagne for £40....

Not sure that is my cup of tea for New Year's Eve....

I hope your not Inflatable Nux, otherwise you have let yourself down. Boom Boom
