Oval Space and The Art of Dining bring you The 80s Office Christmas Party: drinks, dinner, dancing and plenty of paper in the photocopier. An 80s-themed pop-up experience combining food, theatre, music and set design, inspired by the classic office Christmas party.Amanda Bellingham, female powerhouse and boss of The Pickle Factory Ltd, will be taking the night off from monitoring pickle production and hosting your party instead. 


From a welcome speech celebrating herself as ‘the Margaret Thatcher of condiments’ to end of year appraisals and a slow dance at the Christmas disco, she will make sure the party goes off with a bang and leave you feeling really quite pickled.


The 80s Office Party will see set designer Alice Hodge take you back to the decade of shoulder pads and big hair, transforming The Pickle Factory into a classic office environment of overhead projectors and pinboards, filing cabinets and pot plants, complete with a refreshing lack of computers and the all important, and much abused, photocopier. 


Grab a glass of punch from the water cooler and get ready to enjoy Moro-trained chef Ellen Parr’s food classics from the era, presented with a contemporary twist. 


Her 80s Office Party example menu features:



Grab your favourite mug and enjoy a cup of delicious tea or coffee at the tea station. Office politics are optional…Coffee: A rosemary and wild mushroom consommé served with goat’s cheese biscuitTea: Thai style beef massaman broth served with chilli and coriander biscuit



Tuck into a delicious Taiwanese sandwich at the classic Christmas buffetCucumber sandwich: Pickled cucumber and braised pork belly baoTuna mayo sandwich: Seared sesame tuna and kimchi mayo bao



Try cheese and pineapple like you’ve never tasted it before in the form of pineapple and lime cheesecake served on a good old spiked potato.


Whether you want to party with a group of friends or book a table of 20 for your work do, you won’t find a more entertaining or interactive Christmas party experience anywhere else. Tickets are available at, and if you’d like to book all 60 wheely chairs for your whole company please drop us an email at


So crimp that fringe, pop on those shoulder pads, straighten that comedy Christmas tie and head to The Pickle Factory (10 minute walk from Bethnal Green tube) for a night of disco dancing, Secret Santa, pickle and an awkward encounter with the boss, no doubt.

An incredible night... Hilarious actors provided the perfect backdrop to a wonderful set with exceptional attention to detail. The food was outstanding which was presented in an innovative and fun way. I cannot wait for The Art of Dining's next pop up, and will keep an eye on all future events from them. Top bloody notch.
