Go BIG - Discover our 2018 Christmas Party Packages

Just a few weeks after the fun and excitement of the Christmas Party season has died down, our teams up and down the country have been excitedly sitting down to plan their 2018 Christmas Party Packages. It's an exciting time for our teams, as they are allowed to think creatively, to come up with some wonderful themes and spectacular ideas. Our chefs are busy cooking up some enticing Christmas menu's to make sure that Christmas 2018 delivers some exciting packages for your delectation.

Christmas is the classic corporate party; people love them. It’s the end of the year, it coincides with a global celebration and already many people are in the party mood. It’s a chance to blow out the cobwebs and remind everyone you work with that you love them … really.

It’s cold outside but it’s warm inside your unique Christmas party venue and with the early set in of evening Christmas lights, elegant theming and settings sparkle all night. Our research points out that the first or second week in December is the perfect time to host the event. Staff like to have great food and wine but don’t expect the company to have to pay for everything. Yes, fancy dress can be fun and for the right crowd even a winner, but perhaps even greater reward is achieved by having a more upmarket tone, a black-tie or traditional wonderland theme. Both these themes make it easier for your guests and set the night apart as being something really special. For some great ideas for Christmas party themes, check out this article.

We know that these events have moved on from the classic cliché of drunken debauchery; they work well when they are classic, elegant, well dressed, well themed and held somewhere truly special and unique.

Should you book a Sharer Party in 2018?

Not all employees are lucky enough to have a business that can and will spend on a party; it’s not always possible. However, there are few things more demotivating or indeed telling than the public cancelling of a party.

In these occasions, we at Lime Venue Portfolio have seen amazing examples of departments or groups of colleagues put on their own party, regardless of the company’s involvement.

Often these are sharer parties where these folks can join small companies, other like-minded departments and groups, or event project teams, to form a stronger, better whole. These are great events, with creative themes, beautiful unique venues, and with the added opportunity to either stay small at a table or mix it up with like-minded individuals at the event or even on the dance floor.

Sharer parties have got bigger, more popular and more sophisticated as time has gone on. They include amazing entertainment, a genuinely party atmosphere and a sense of shared camaraderie between companies that like the idea of mixing it up with some like-minded revellers.

Our venues are offering a wealth shared Christmas Party packages in 2018, meaning that you don't have to miss out on the 'big bash' feel.

Perfect Parties

Parties are not all about silly hats, games, tacky surroundings and boring food. The party market is incredibly strong in the UK; businesses understand their value and want to do amazing things for their staff.

An unusual Christmas party venue can bring together amazing surroundings and beautiful food under a unique backdrop, elevating a party from just a 'get together' to a memorable and engaging experience for everyone.
