Christmas is just around the corner!
Summer is finally here, and that means Wimbledon, BBQs and Pimms! While for most people Christmas is the last thing on their mind, for our team this is the time of year we begin to see an influx of Christmas party bookings. Some businesses will have booked their venue early in January, particularity those with large teams or had a memorable night they want to recreate.
For many January is about getting back into the swing of work (and the gym) and therefore finding and booking a Christmas party venue is far from their mind. It isn’t until half way through the year the first whispers of the office Christmas party begin and by September and October the majority of our London based venues are fully booked.
Getting your Christmas party venue booked up early is crucial. There are just a few evenings available for each venue, and only a select number of venues. This is why we also recommend you begin the process as early as possible to make sure you have a venue that does your event justice, rather than the local town hall on a Thursday night.
To help you kick start your search we have put together a list of our top 10 Christmas party venues:
The Transport Museum is a wonderfully unique setting for your Christmas party. A stunning Grade II listed building that creates a wonderful backdrop to your event, your guests also have the opportunity to explore the museum and exhibits. The Galleries have a capacity of up to 160 seated or 550 standing.
