News: Magna prepares for party season


More than 4,000 people have already booked on to Christmas parties at the Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham.

Set in the former Templeborough steelworks, Magna is a family attraction with more than 100 hands-on exhibits. It also hosts regular school trips and has unique event space that can cater for anything from five to 5,000 people.

The Eat Bump Groove party nights, which run over eight nights in December, are popular as works' Christmas outings, with about 55,000 people attending over the last ten years.

Donna Shaw, marketing co-ordinator at Magna, said: "Most people are off on their summer holidays right now, but others obviously like to plan ahead.

"We get a lot of businesses coming to the Eat Bump Groove events as their works' Christmas night out year after year. And it is proving more and more popular as word gets out about what a unique night out it is.

"At this point last year we had sold about 3,500 tickets; now we have sold 4,130. So sales are already higher than last year."
Tickets have also gone on sale for the second annual Oktoberfest event which features German-themed food, continental lagers and two Oompah bands.

John Silker, chief executive of Magna, said: "Last year more than 2,000 people came over the two days and this year will be even bigger and better. Oktoberfest is now becoming part of the party calendar, much like our Christmas parties which draw in thousands each year."

After a successful first event in March, History is set to repeat itself in September when the History brand returns to Magna to celebrate house music. Other events making use of the flexible venue include further comic conventions, automotive shows and the global metalworking industry's premier aerospace conference, TRAM 2015.
