You want something for everyone, something which will have a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for the guests and yet won’t bankrupt the bosses? Have a look at these brilliant ideas for something other than just turkey and tinsel at your local.
Go to ‘Office Party – The Cabaret’ at Pleasance Theatre
This site-based interactive performance allows the audience to stand in for the office workers as they are entertained by all the different ‘department heads’ and their acts. Enjoy the show and follow it up with a trip to the pub for a memorable night out with your colleagues.
Get Involved at a Panto
Start with some afternoon drinks to get everyone in the right mood, and then visit a pantomime. It’ll remind you of your childhood, and you can shout ‘oh no he didn’t’ as much as you like. If your company is based in London, the New Wimbledon Theatre is showing Cinderella starring Matthew Kelly, Wayne Sleep and Time Vine, a line up which promises a hilariously silly couple of hours.
Cocktail Making Master Class
Hone your cocktail making skills with some tutoring from professional bartenders. Learn how to mix, zest, juice and flare like the best with plenty of opportunity for tasting! If you want you can continue into the night with an open cocktail bar afterwards. This event comes with a portable bar so the venue is completely up to you.
Go Ice Skating
There are a huge number of outdoor ice rinks set up in picturesque locations around London that will make for a fabulous festive evening activity before you go and warm up in a restaurant or pub nearby. Some of the best include the Natural History Museum’s Rink, Somerset House’s Rink, Hampton Court Palace’s Rink and the EyeSkate Ice Rink located in the shadow of the London Eye.
Bring Your Own Cocktail
At this speakeasy style bar in Covent Garden the concept is simple, bring your own spirits and the bartender will make them into bespoke cocktails for you at the table. You’ll need to book ahead for a 2 hour slot, and it costs £20 per person but if you can commit the experience will be something different and memorable for everyone involved.
Trial some new Comedy Acts
The Comedy Store is putting on ‘Christmas Specials’ every Monday night, so you can go along with your team and enjoy some upcoming comedians. Even if they’re terrible the experience will be something to bond over, and the venue is licensed so you can have a relaxed drink or two as you watch the show.
Take Part in a Hilarious Game Show Mashup
For an evening full of laughter try The Zing Show. The Zing Show is a gameshow which takes elements of celebrity juice, shooting stars, the generation game and our own unique ideas to create a bespoke and non-cheesy interactive evening event.
