The Studio – The special event location in Vevey
Sit back and relax as the journey through the life of the film icon begins with a movie. Afterwards the curtain opens and you start the tour through the studio. You walk through the streets of London, where Charlie Chaplin spent his childhood. In the circus, for example, your aperitif could take place. The journey continues to Chaplin’s Hollywood years. How about a dinner in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard. Surrounded by props, awards and movie screens, this location will leave a lasting impression on your guests.
The Manoir – The Private Rooms of Charlie and Oona
After Charlie Chaplin moved into the Manoir de Ban mansion in 1953, he set up his film archive in the basement. There he kept the 16mm prints of Chaplin classics such as “The Circus” or “The Vagabond the Child”, for which he later composed the film music. This basement room has been completely remodeled and can be rented as a vaulted hall for private events. The turnkey hall is decorated in the industrial style of Chaplin’s masterpiece “Modern Times” and is the ideal place for a work session, meeting or small group dinner.
Want your event to take place during the summer months? Walk in the footsteps of famous people who strolled along the pergola of the Manoir de Ban alongside Charlie Chaplin. The unobstructed view of Lake Geneva and the Alps create an unforgettable setting for your event.
The Tramp – The restaurant in the former farmhouse
Plan your event at Chaplin’s World’s restaurant, The Tramp. Immerse yourself in the universe of Charlie Chaplin amidst authentic film backdrops. Whether at an anniversary celebration, the company outing or after a seminar, rent the entire restaurant for your evening event. Likewise, the large shaded terrace of the restaurant invites you to spend relaxing moments with your clients or guests.
A bowler hat, a wobbly mustache, a swinging stick and wobbly feet, that’s how we know Charlie Chaplin in his most famous role as a tramp. No one else embodied the expression of pantomime and poetry as skillfully as he did. Chaplin was a composer, dancer, director and producer. That is why even Michael Jackson, is said to have been one of his greatest admirers. It is said that the dance, at the end of the movie “Modern Times”, was inspiration for Jackson`s famous moonwalk.
You can explore Chaplin`s World on your own or on a group tour. We would be happy to assist you in planning your event.
