Whisper it, but venues across the country are launching their Christmas party packages as they know that super-organised planners like to get a jump on booking the year-end office celebration. Our in-house Concierge service is already receiving festive enquiries so here’s a few of the early-bird offers that have caught our attention so far.
The home of Saracens Rugby Club in Hendon, London is offering both shared and private parties in its Enchanted Forest-themed event space. Frosted trees, street lamps, snow effects, wintery lighting and a stunning white throne will set the festive mood.
The evening will kick off with a sparkling welcome reception, after which a three course dinner will be served, followed by a disco to dance the night away.
Additional entertainment can be added on request and Allianz Park's events team can recommend local accommodation for those wishing to make an overnight stay part of the celebrations.
Package prices start from £47.50 + VAT. Exclusive hire packages start from £65 + VAT for a minimum of 80 guess.
