Usually the theme of the office Christmas party is, well, Christmas.  If you’re organising your company’s annual Christmas party this year, however, why not consider giving it an unexpected twist which will get guests thinking beyond the canapes and Santa hats.  With an exclusive Christmas party venue in Bristol, you could give your office get together a theme to remember this December.

Inspired by out range of unique and unusual Christmas party venues, here are just three ‘outside the box’ themes you could choose to help make your corporate Christmas party that little bit more fun and memorable…

Three Unusual Themes to Give Your Bristol Christmas Party a Twist

Go Wild at Bristol Zoo

We’re not suggesting that you encourage a dresscode of animal onesies, but you could find a creative way to incorporate an animal theme into your office Christmas party at Bristol Zoo.  If fancy dress is not really in keeping with the style of your company and the tone of the Christmas party you’re going for, you could take inspiration from the natural world in other ways. 

The highly skilled event organisers at Bristol Zoo could, for example, arrange for decorations in keeping with an ‘Arctic Winter’ theme featuring fake snow and icicles, while guests might like to don ‘penguin suits’ or fake furs to get in on the spirit of the event.  Alternatively, suggesting in your invitations that guests bring along an animal tail to wear when they ‘shake a tail feather’ on the dance floor could be an ice breaker after you’ve enjoyed your sit-down meal.

With a chance to get up close and personal with some of Bristol Zoo’s animal inhabitants, this is one of the most unique Christmas party venues in Bristol and the South West.  The beautiful rooms at the Clifton Pavilion are ideal for decorating according to your chosen theme, and with competitively priced packages available throughout December, this is one of the most versatile venues available in the city.

Step into the Future at M-Shed

M-Shed is a truly unique Christmas party venue, which celebrates Bristol’s industrial heritage.  Whatever the temperature outside, guests are sure to feel the benefit of the fantastic roof terrace and its incredible panoramic views over Bristol harbour, while the contemporary space inside is fully customisable and sure to wow. 

In keeping with the industrial vibe, you could suggest guests adopt a more futuristic dress code – instead of the standard little black dress and black tie, you could opt for metallic colours and a bit of sparkle, something slightly more edgy than the usual formal attire required for office Christmas parties.

The fantastic events team at M-Shed can have the venue decked out as a real-life Santa’s workshop, complete with candy canes, nutcrackers and a real Christmas feast for your guests to enjoy.  Let your hair down at this exclusive Bristol venue and your team will really celebrate the season in style.

High Culture at the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery

A landmark venue at the heart of the city, the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery is one of the most impressive venues in which to host your corporate Christmas party.  In order to really celebrate this unusual venue, you could opt for a historical theme to your Christmas party and pick a period of history which will allow your guests to get creative.

You could request the venue be decked out along the lines of a Victorian Christmas theme, for example, conjuring up images of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.  A gods and goddesses theme might also add an interesting twist to your event, and could result in some fascinating fancy dress costumes.

Whatever theme you choose, the magnificent surroundings of the Winterstoke and Wills Halls will live long in the memories of party-goers.  With competitive Christmas party rates, some excellent catering to be enjoyed and an expert team on hand throughout the night, you can be sure your event will be a roaring success this December.
