A tenth birthday wouldn’t be a celebration without Party Bags!

Party Bags are back

We have been handing out Up Late Party Bags to Up Late attendees for 10 years – that’s 10,000 James St Party Bags in a decade…and that’s a lot of goodies! 

The good news is the tradition continues this year – with 1,000 Party Bags up for grabs exclusively from 5PM during Up Late on Thursday 31 March. You are never too old to get excited about Party Bags – our Up Late Party Bags are very full, very fun and the Up Late experience won’t be complete without one.  

Double digits mean double the fun, so find out what treats can be found in this year’s James St Up Late Party Bags and be sure to stay tuned for how to get your hands on one.
