Guests can either opt for a attending a pop up restaurant followed by wonderful party and entertainments, or just going for the party alone. Kelly Sealy’s renowned company Pig & Swig hosts the restaurant and guests can expect to dine on a lavish three course menu, created especially for this event. Kelly’s food is currently very much in demand, a teacher at the Bordeaux Quay cookery school and a star of the C4 TV show The Taste, she is a much loved figure from Bristol's independent food scene. As well as the pop-up restaurant there will be spectacular entertainments to inspire and enthral throughout the evening. At dusk, Kings Weston House will be the backdrop for a giant outdoor cinema when the whole building will be projected onto with beautiful monochrome film images. Which promises to be something of a visual spectacular as night falls!

Within the splendour of the ‘Great Hall’ the Gin Palace is where spirits will be kept flowing through the night by some of Bristol’s finest barmen underneath a range of exciting aerial circus performances. Guests should bring their dancing shoes and prepare to dance the night away as we welcome back the mighty Bedmo Disco DJs to host the grand ballroom. Playing the very finest disco, funk & soul with a few guilty pleasures thrown in. A Grade 1 listed building that was designed in the early 18th Century by Sir John Vanbrugh, Kings Weston has recently been lovingly restored and brought back to life. It is truly one of Bristol’s hidden gems despite being located only 8 minutes fro Bristol city centre just past the downs.

The production is headed up by Bristol arts producer Keda Breeze, the driving force behind some much loved Bristol projects, such as breathing life back into the historic Mauretania Club, creating the wonderful circus cabaret Hoochie Coochie events and running the pop up Empire Theatre on Old Market last year.

Tickets cost just £45 for dinner and party, or just £15 for the party only. Early booking is very highly recommended. Group discounts are also available. Maison Paradiso takes place on Bank Holiday Sunday, May 4th at Kings Weston House BS11 0UR.
