THE annual office Christmas party conversations are likely to start around now as we approach autumn. It can take a fair amount of time to decide where is the best venue in terms of location, the festive cuisine on offer and the overall plan for the night - whether to go for drinks and dancing, a sit-down dinner or something a bit more informal. The Whittlebury Park team have shared their ideas on what they think makes a great festive night to celebrate the end of a busy year.
Hannah - Conference and Event Sales Team Manager - Music! A good mixture of festive favourites and classics as well as new music so that everyone in the team has a few songs that they love and can sing along to. A DJ that takes requests is also a bonus, as every team will have some shared songs that they all know.
Natasha - Head of Marketing & PR - I like to indulge in some pre-party pampering. I'll go for a facial and get my nails done as a treat for a special occasion such as the office Christmas party. As the end of the year is such a busy time for most of us, having some time to relax before all the parties and gatherings begin is the perfect way to recharge for just a few hours.
Ryan - Sales Enquiry Specialist - Good food is really important and as it's Christmas, a seasonal menu with a festive twist is the first thing I look for in a venue. Midnight snacks in addition to the main dinner is also a great added extra to a Christmas Party offer, as is being able to stay over at the venue.
