ABBAtalk Christmas Party
Saturday 16 December
Carl Magnus Palm, 4pm-6pm
'ABBAdance', 7.30pm-midnight

We are thrilled to announce our first ABBAtalk Christmas Party! Carl Magnus Palm (noted ABBA historian, consultant to Polar Music and author of ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions) will join us on stage to reveal details of his forthcoming ABBA-related projects and answer questions from the audience. Carl Magnus will be happy to sign copies of his books; the only exception being 'ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions', out of respect to those who pre-ordered the signed edition of the book. A 90 minute break will follow, with meals available at the venue and elsewhere nearby. From 7.30pm until midnight, we’ll play ABBA’s greatest hits, rarities and live recordings alongside your favourite album tracks and the very best of the ABBA members’ solo careers - plus a few festive hits! Light refreshments are included in the ticket price, while our private bar will offer alcoholic/non-alcoholic drinks. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you are a member of ABBAtalk on Facebook.

If you attended our April 2017 event, you'll be familiar with our superb vocalists, Laura Fuller (London, UK) and Patrick O'Donnell (New York, USA), who performed a selection of ABBA's unreleased melodies and lyrics by special permission of Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. We are pleased to announce that Laura and Patrick will reunite for a performance at our Christmas Party! There will be a number of special surprises and some truly exclusive material.

To add to the party atmosphere, we're inviting all our guests to dress up for the disco in the style of ABBA's friends as photographed on the sleeve of the Super Trouper album and the accompanying promo clips for Super Trouper promo and Happy New Year! As you may have guessed, your hosts for the evening will be dressed as the four ABBA members. A group photograph will be taken and the best dressed will receive prizes. Need some inspiration? Just click [here] to watch a video showing all of the costumes. Of course, your outfit does not need to be an exact replica - It's all about having fun. Be brave, join in and you might win a prize!

Due to the limited space for seats at the venue, tickets are strictly limited to less than half of those available for our previous event with Carl Magnus Palm. We are therefore confident that tickets will quickly sell out. Please avoid disappointment and buy your ticket (below) as soon as possible. Merchandise will be available to purchase on the day.

The ABBAtalk Christmas Party is being held at The Hop Poles, 17-19 King Street, Hammersmith, London, W6 9HR. There are two London Underground stations named Hammersmith and both of these are only a two minute walk from The Hop Poles. The nearest 24 hour car park is at the Kings Mall and the nearest hotel is the Holiday Inn Express. [View in Google Maps]
