A £3.2m extension aimed at both expediting customers’ passage through the city’s airport and experience of arriving in the North East could be ready in time for a season of exciting Christmas parties Newcastle style, it has been revealed. The work, including the addition of extra baggage search lanes and a refurbishment of the pier housing the airport’s departure and arrival gates, commences early next month and will go a long way towards improving passengers’ immediate perception of the region. Bright, spacious departure and arrival gates will create a picturesque, inviting first port of call.
Now, we here at Eventa aren’t ones to shy away from thinking up new and innovative ways to experience your company Christmas party and upon hearing about the planned extension at the gateway to one of our favourite Christmas party destinations we decided to get in on the act. Of course local companies have no excuse when it comes to enjoying festive events such as To Russia With Love, Murder Mystery and Stars On Stages on their doorstep, but we reckon that small companies based as far away as the South of England should perhaps consider a Christmas party Newcastle style this year! For the same price as a Christmas party in London, you could all hop on a plane and be on Tyneside in under and hour. Having undergone a huge series of regeneration projects, the city centre is starting to look as swish as its airport with a ground-breaking portfolio of interesting Christmas party venues, clubs, pubs and restaurants to enjoy.
The aforementioned To Russia With Love event is certainly one of those Christmas parties to go the distance for. Set amongst grand settings, guests enjoy their Christmas dinner surrounded by a mock-up of the Tsar’s palace and are entertained by Cossack sword dancers, fire eaters and aerial trapeze artists. Once all the fun and festivities are over, the city has a wealth of high quality hotels in which to rest weary legs before hot-footing it back to the South the next day. Get involved!
