The long Easter weekend has come and gone and we are now full steam ahead with the party season! As well as beginning work on planning summer events for clients, we’ve been getting lots of Christmas party plans through from venues and suppliers across the country. Precise details will begin appearing on this very website over the coming weeks and months but we can reveal now that you are in for an absolute treat, no matter where you are enjoying your festive bash. Last year London hogged the limelight when it came to the most extravagant theming and entertainment and whilst the capital looks set to outdo itself yet again, Christmas party venues in places such as Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham and Derby are already telling us about what crazy stuff they’ve got planned. The likes of Zulu Sundance, Festive & Fabulous and Magical Montmartre are surely titles to get those festive juices flowing!
Christmas parties London style have always been about the notion of ‘bigger is better’ but this year it would appear that historic traditions and social events are shaping them more than anything. Early 20th century American high society is set to be recreated with ‘Gatsby’, held at the Tower Of London no less! ‘Venetian Carnevale’ and ‘Magical Masquerade’, held at The Northumberland, see elegant Venetian masked balls from the Renaissance period represented in the format of a luxurious modern day Christmas party, whereas The Regency’s ‘Cotton Club’ event is inspired by the illicit drinking and gambling of Prohibition in 1920s Chicago.
The reason that these nostalgic events are so popular is that there is the perception that in the good old days people threw a far more elegant and luxurious kind of party, with Champagne receptions and banquets, where guests made the effort to look absolutely stunning. The great thing about these particular Christmas parties in London is that they combine the historic side with a huge dose of contemporary cool, meaning you can expect things like cocktails, live bands and even dodgems.
Our parties are turning back the clock this Christmas, so hop onboard our festive time machine this year!
