Party Mash Up
Calling all witches and wizards, had a tough day in Potions?
No fret, we've got something that'll let your wands down. You are cordially invited to The Wizard Inn on Friday 28th April at The Old Stoke Newington church from 7:30 - 10:30pm. Join us for an evening of bubbling, smoking bottomless cocktails, finger foods and live entertainment (oh hey, beer pong).
The squad wasn't down with having us party in the Great Hall so we've taken things to East London instead. We can't guarantee that trolls won't burst through the doors or the creepy crawlies will stay put chillin' - but we do know that you're about to have a wiztastic time. Tickets are £45 per person with unlimited drinks, entertainment and a cold buffet that Ron would go weak at the knees for.
Unfortunately landlords won't accept butterbeer as payment (trust us, we've checked) so standard money it is! Just purchase the tickets here: Whether you're a witch, a troll, half breed - all are welcome! So don your best spell binding outfit, things are about to get riddikulus!

This was a truly terrible event. Lorna provides a very accurate review of the first hour of the evening; I can't comment on the magician or beer pong as we left during the quiz. Before people starting complaining and leaving, I counted a max guest headcount of 22. There was no atmosphere but instead, there was an incredibly awkward vibe as we entered a cold, dingy church hall and were offered our sugary watered down "cocktails". The food was naff. Sangria style cocktails on the tables had little/no alcohol. The wizard was appalling and the quiz was a joke. When we complained, we were told that the organisers weren't making any money out the event... I can't see how this justifies the terrible planning of a poor quality event, especially at £45 per ticket. When we complained of the poor quality food, we were told that the organiser didn't do it herself... I don't know if she thought this was actually a reasonable justification, given that she is responsible for providing the event, and therefore is responsible for the food. The organiser shouted at us in defence of our complaints and made no apology. In all, we are incredibly annoyed that we were misled to buy tickets for an event that was so misrepresented.
visited The Old Church on 28 Apr 2017
If I could give this a zero I would. It was an absolute shambles and we felt incredibly ripped off.
The "cold buffet" was essentially food that is supposed to be hot, served cold. Really poor quality, I would have rather gone without.
"Unlimited drinks" were awfully sweet with barely any alcohol, one being sweet soda with squirty cream on top - vile. They certainly weren't bubbling cauldrons or smoking cocktails. We had to keep asking for beer which was initially rationed, and then finally they went to the shop to get more - still, no choice other than Carling - classy..!
Finally the entertainment, again, poor quality. The singer was good at the start, but completely out of place. Then the quiz, read by a "wizard" who couldn't pronounce Hermione or Weasley. Next was the magician- who I felt for, as most people had walked out by this point. He was ok, but lacked energy and atmosphere, another poor quality element. Last but not least, the beer pong. It was awkward at this point but we gave it a go, tiny plastic cups should have been proper American party cups to at least bring the quality up a notch. There was no wash cup so old ping pong balls rolling about on a church floor and then drinking that beer was when we decided to call it a day.
As some guests said to the organisers as they were leaving, the event is falsely advertised, massively over priced and the organisers should be ashamed of themselves.
This event was massivley over priced, it was like a primary school disco with cheap finger food and sugary cocktails with basically no alcohol if any,
It was a shame because the venue was really suitable and the magician and harpist were good.
Beautiful venue :) harpist was good but the DJ was awesome playing all the latest and old school tracks. I knocked off a star for the cider cocktails. But that's down to personal choice as I'm not a fan of cider.
Got my ticket for the next one! Please can we have more nIver cocktails :)
Not sure why there's so many negative reviews..!
Wanted to give my two cents to say that I had a wonderful time at the event! Loved the venue and the harpist playing the HP theme tune on arrival and you can tell a lot of thought went into the small details :)
This was a truly awful event. The pictures are incredibly misleading for what in reality could only be described as a second rate kids party. Do not go, it is a waste of money are there are much better things to spend your money. I think any profits made from the event should go to charity and the event organisers should be ashamed of themselves for misleading people in this way !
If I could give this event 0 stars I would. The reality was nothing like the blurb or the photos. Instead of sumptuous banquet tables with bubbling drinks and live entertainment it was essentially a village hall with the equivalent of a kids party buffet of sausage rolls and muffins and sweets. The entertainment was made up of one beer pong table and a harpist who left after 20 minutes. £45 is massively overpriced! Do not go.
This was the worst event I have been to. The buffet was comprised of blueberry muffins and sausage rolls. We had some cheap sugary watered down cocktails and a can of strongbow each and there was no live music, candles or long beautifully set banquet tables. The tables were cheap and plastic with paper table cloths and scattered with plastic Halloween props. I have been robbed I could not recommend this event less.
