Trying to get an exact definition of the ‘Home Counties’ can be challenging, or even why they’re called the ‘Home Counties’ at all. But generally most of us can agree that it’s the area that surrounds London. You may not find an exact breakdown on an official map, but the Home Counties are full of distinctive English destinations with a huge amount to see, do and enjoy.
For a lot of people’s perception the area outside of London is generally just thought of as the Commuter Belt. A grey, lifeless place where everyone lives to work. Every morning they travel to London on congested transportation routes and do the same in the evening. However it couldn’t be further from the truth. There are a huge number of locations with character in the area. And many of these locations are full of companies, all of whom know the importance of the Christmas party. If you’re based in the Home Counties, don’t worry about having to get into the capital for your festivities. We can bring the party to you!
Just as much of the Home Counties have personality separate from London, they have a history that stretches beyond the reach of Greater London. It’s a region that has produced writers like P.G Wodehouse and Lewis Caroll, and has been the residence of artists like Stanley Kubrick, politicians like Benjamin Disraeli. And it’s easy to see why such prestigious characters would live in the area. As well as access to the capital, it’s one of the very most beautiful parts of England.
From the hilly cobbled streets of Guildford to the medieval township of St. Albans, the Home Counties are full of beautiful locations. It’s a dictionary definition of ‘picturesque’. And a perfect backdrop to your festive event!
If it’s good enough for the royals, it should be good enough for you! Windsor is one of the very most prestigious locations that we hold our events in. And although we still have yet to throw an event at Windsor Castle – there are numerous other stately and regal locations that can be ideal for your festive event. These prestigious venues add a sense of tradition and heritage to your event that is perfectly suited to the Christmas party.
St. Albans has become one of our very favourite locations to work in since we started sourcing parties there. Some of the venues have the very highest levels of production from anywhere across the country. So if your team can get to St. Albans, and you want a true sense of majesty and grandeur to your festive event – then you’re in luck as we have just the parties for you!
At Eventa we group our Christmas parties into two separate categories, each of which is better suited to different companies. Our shared events, under the shared filter, are where you share the space with other teams. This is an ideal solution if you want one of the many large, prestigious venues in the area, but may not have the minimum numbers. Another benefit to the Shared Christmas party is that as you share the venue with other teams, who are also local, there’s also a chance for some networking. Although this is probably best done before too many visits to the bar.
Our other category that you can filter our parties by is exclusive. The exclusive party is where you have your own private event, with just your company present. As you’re the only team in attendance there’s much more flexibility with what can be done for your event. To this end, Eventa will source a fantastic venue who can provide you with a party perfect for your Christmas event. Your package includes everything from your venue through to catering, drinks, entertainment and more. For any venue advice please feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org today.
