Work Christmas Party - London planning tips:

Before you get caught up in the details - researching karaoke machines can wait! - make sure you’re 100% clear on what it is you’re after from a London venue. Having a list of your Christmas party requirements is important, as there’s a whole lot of variety out there.

Are you looking for an  ultra-modern space with panoramic city views? A historic venue full of winter wonderland charm? An intimate restaurant, or a vast dancing hall? Do you want to dress the place yourself? Perhaps you’re on the hunt for themed party packages instead (think Après Ski, Santa’s Grotto, or even Christmas at the speakeasy).

Here are some of the main factors you’ll want to consider - and the things you might want to avoid - before cracking open the Christmas crackers:

Guest numbers

Capacity is key! Make sure your venue is big enough to accommodate all of your guests (plus dance floor space - optional, but, in our opinion, highly recommended!). Equally, if you’re looking to host a seated dinner for a small group, you’ll want to tailor the space to the occasion.

AV facilities

Whether you’re envisioning a candlelit glow, neon disco lights, or even on-the-wall projected snow - you’re going to want to check out a venue’s lighting facilities. And what’s a Christmas party without music? Make sure your space has a great sound system. It’s worth checking to see what sort of equipment is included with hire, and whether your venue offers any customisable AV add-ons.

Food, glorious food!

If ever there’s a time to go all-out with the catering, it’s Christmas! Look into the options available at your venue ahead of time: some places offer set catering packages, whilst others provide a blank canvas for you to source your own suppliers.

Late licence

Planning on boogying the night away? Look for a venue to hire with a late licence, so that any shimmying and shape-throwing can continue into the early hours. Not all London venues offer these, and, since there’s nothing worse than clock-watching - or having to cut the party short - if you know you’ll be needing a late licence, enquire first before booking.

Location, location, location

London is a big place! Make use of the City’s brilliant transport links, and check that your venue is close to at least one main station. If you’re anticipating inbound partygoers from further afield, you might want to look at whether your space is accessible from Heathrow and London City airports.

 We’ve covered all these points in more detail in one of our blogs, too - check it out here!

London Christmas Party Trends

If you’re stuck for inspiration, worry not! Here are our hottest Christmas party trends and predictions for this CDecember.

1. Farewell to Fridays

With ever-changing work habits and flexibility, it’s looking increasingly likely that the new working practices will make Friday nights less popular, as many people decide, or are permitted to, work from home on Fridays. This will reduce the number of ‘prime nights’ available at all venues and make Thursdays the new ‘best night’ to party.

2. More Christmas lunches

While we’re moving back toward sit-down Christmas meals and buffet tables, the changes in working patterns may result in lunchtime events increasing in popularity over the traditional ‘evening do’ in order to reduce the use of ‘out of working hours’ time away from home.

3. Multi-purpose events

With so many social and work gatherings and company meet-ups having been postponed or cancelled over the last two years couple with the rise in hybrid working, we anticipate an increase in London Christmas parties that also include a business, conference or awards element as companies make the most of having the whole team together.

4. Earlier party finishes

Another trend we are noticing is reduced demand for 1am (or later) end times for Christmas parties in London.  Again, we feel that this is all part of the increased corporate social responsibility that organsiers are mindful of in planning events.  These earlier finishes improve guest safety in getting home and reduces the risks relating to excessive alcohol.  We expect this trend to continue to strengthen over the coming years.

5. Book early, book now!

With demand for venues increasing year-round as the events industry bounces back, Christmas parties are no exception especially when you factor in the additional diary pressures mentioned above. So, whatever you’re looking for in your London Christmas party – whether it’s an exclusive venue on a Wednesday or Thursday night for groups of over 100 or a smaller Christmas lunch with an awards function - this is the year to get in early and start your venue finding process right now!

Top tricks of the trade

  • Some venues offer inclusive party packages - have a look on their website for more details. These can include multiple features, such as food and drink, music/entertainment, theming, and events management.
  • Know the area. Research around your London venue: you can guarantee there’ll be a point of interest nearby worth recommending to your guests.
  • Ask if your venue offers menu sampling (great for larger groups!).
  • Need a few more pairs of hands? Check whether the venue has links with an events temping company. If not, try advertising for temporary staff on industry-specific websites, or reach out to an agency.
  • Much as we wish it could be Christmas every day, all good things come to an end… Enquire to see whether your venue offers a post-party clean up!

Office Christmas Party Venues - FAQs

How much will it all cost?

Prices vary from venue to venue, but rest assured we never charge for finding your perfect Christmas party venue (and we may be able to negotiate a better rate on your behalf!). If you’re worried about budget, you could always consider a Shared Christmas Party Night. Perfect for small groups, shared nights offer the chance for companies to book several tables, as part of a larger event. This makes for an incredible party atmosphere, and a great night all round.

When should I start my search?

Sooner rather than later! Avoid December disappointment this year and make enquiries early. Booking in advance, or on a non-prime date, could also prove cheaper in the long-run.

 How do I stand out from the crowd?

There’s lots of ways to go about doing this, but, if you’re feeling stuck for inspiration, here are some of our favourites: pick an unusual Christmas party venue (we love East Wintergarden as a party space!), go all-out with a unique theme, introduce a virtual/gamified element, or round off with an awards ceremony.

Using Venue Search London is a huge help to me, particularly in the circumstances of this particular event which I was managing on my own. With the number of venues across London it is extremely time consuming trying to search for one which meets all/most of the criteria required. Taking this part of the event management off my hands is such a massive help! For this particular search, you worked really hard to find a venue that was suitable for us, and even though there was such limited availability for the day we wanted you ended up finding us one which was pretty much perfect in terms of what we needed and came in within our budget – thank you! While we don’t host a huge number of events in London and I can’t promise to give you lots of business in future, I would not hesitate to contact you again to ask for your assistance when next required and also to recommend you to EA/PA colleagues outside of UK Sport. This is the second time I have used Venue Search London and both times have been fantastic.
