The Old Crown beer garden will be transformed into a magical ski lodge; with pine trees, falling snow, ski racks, piste maps and strings of fairy lights and lanterns. Decked out with all the luxuries of a ski lodge. Cosying up in the heated marquee on the fur-lined benches with a festive cocktail, this venue provides the perfect wintery escape from the cold outside.

What Apres ski party is complete without the bar, this winter, guests can enjoy mulled wine, hot spiced cider, mugs of steaming hot chocolate, cocktails, a wide selection of European beers, champagne cocktails and of course Schnapps!

We will be working with some of Birmingham’s very best street food traders to bring you an Alpine inspired menu, expect a twist on the French classics such as fondue and raclette, details to be released soon. The Bournville Waffle Company will be in residents each night with their full menu of delicious sweet waffles.

Through out the evening there will be a full line up of entertainment from DJs and live bands such as The Heavy Beat Brass Band. We will also be holding a best-dressed competition for those that wish to embrace the mountainous air and don the salopette for the night. Forgot your goggles? We will also have a vintage ski shop on site selling everything from ski jumpers to ski boots.
