Festive choice

Published: 19 Oct 2018

Still looking for that last-minute Christmas party booking? Here's four worth considering, still with availability

Grand Harbour Hotel

If you’re dreaming of a White Christmas, then the Michael Bublé tribute night at the Grand Harbour Hotel in Southampton on 1 December maybe all you’ve been ‘wanting for Christmas’. 

A 15-minute walk from Southampton City Art Gallery, this upscale, modern hotel with a sloping glass facade currently has seven available Christmas party nights left but only one with a tribute to Bublé.

The other six nights (30th November, 7th December, 12th & 13th December, 21st & 22nd December) include a glass of sparkling wine, festive three-course meal and entertainment. 

The National Gallery

The National Gallery overlooking Trafalgar Square has teamed up with Past Pleasures, whose pro performers can be hired to play historical characters for your festive event at the London gallery. 

Characters or period musicians can act as hosts, help welcome guests or mingle throughout the event. They can also give speeches or put on a performance. Prices for private events start at £67 per person (600 capacity).

Events using Past Pleasures characters are entirely bespoke, with the price per actor starting at £500.

Celtic Manor

The Celtic Manor Resort in Wales is offering a smorgasbord of themed party nights, from Las Vegas night and ‘So Eighties’ to the glittering Masquerade Ball or Winter Wonderland themes. 

Prices start from £40 per person and a maximum group size applies depending on your chosen theme.

Each theme features a delicious three course festive feast with wine and a drink on arrival. 

Gilwell Park

Located deep in Epping Forest, but only minutes from Chingford Station, Gilwell Park London is offering a variety of bottomless lunch and dinner packages for Christmas. 

A range of party nights, Christmas drinks receptions and festive dinner options all include a one-hour bottomless Prosecco welcome and Christmas crackers. 

Prices start at £23 per person for a minimum of ten people and go up to £65 per person for the All-inclusive party nights. The venue is owned and managed by The Scout Association and all profits are redirected back into the Scout movement.
