It doesn’t just feel out of step to talk about Christmas when temperatures are hitting record highs. It feels stark raving mad. But, that’s not the case in the events community, where Christmas – or, more specifically, Christmas parties – are fair game for conversation 365 days of the year.
The vacay vibes didn’t stop 725 corporate event buyers, venues and suppliers revelling in all things festive at the annual London Christmas Party Show, on 12th & 13th July, at Haberdashers’ Hall.
The past couple of decades have seen a significant shift from the traditional ‘dine and disco’ scenario in hotels to a weird and wonderful range of alternative venue types and activities. To this end, the MICE Concierge venue finding team is used to clients asking for “something different” for their company Christmas do’s.
Something as trad or rad as you please was parading its wares at the show.
Fancy funky Christmas cocktails in a sassy setting? Dirty Martini or Revolution Bars might be your jam.
Looking for a fun activity in addition to the mulled wine and mince pies? How about teeing off at Junk Yard Golf or lubricating your lungs at Lucky Voice?
Film buffs? Park your broomsticks at the Making of Harry Potter. Or steel yourself for the thrills and spills of the War of the Worlds Experience.
Prefer a classically elegant Christmas affair? Perhaps Searcy’s at The Gherkin, the Stationers Hall or Historic Royal Palaces can oblige.
Forget last Christmas, (which was a bit of a non-starter for too many Christmas party people). If you’re thinking about this Christmas, in London or anywhere else, the Santa’s little helpers at MICE Concierge can’t wait to help you find the perfect party venue. Get in touch with your enquiry.
