This year celebrate your office Christmas party… Medieval style!

We love a good old classic Charles Dickens-esque Christmas here at Eventa, but after a while it all starts to blur into one big evening of crackers and Christmas pudding. So if like us, you’re aching for something a little out of the ordinary (and dare we say it… a little bit more “magical”?) then our Medieval Christmas parties are just what you need! In fact you have three parties to choose from…

A Medieval Banquet Christmas

The king of all our themed parties, this event is a fantasy spectacle to behold! Guests will be whisked away from the 21st century and seated in a superbly decorated venue, before being served a hearty five course meal (which even includes unlimited wine and beer too!) The evening also includes two hours of live medieval entertainment, from sword fighting knights, aerial hoop artists to hand balancing performers. This event is not to be missed! Ah but I bet your thinking, “What!? There’ll be no disco?” Of course there’ll be! Because even though the 16th century wasn’t famous for its disco, we’ve made a special exception and made sure that there’ll be an opportunity for you to show off your amazing “robot” to all the knights and princesses present at the event.

A Medieval Christmas Luncheon

For those who are too busy slaying dragons in the evening, we’ve taken our renowned Medieval Banquet Christmas party and made it available during the day time! This party includes a sumptuous five course meal and half a bottle of wine per person. Not to mention the fantastically themed venue, which will be decorated in a way that will have you convinced your back in the middle ages. Entertainment for the evening will consist of jugglers, jesters and jousters (just to name a few!) As well as a very (un)authentic medieval disco. So grab your armour (coat) and prepare the steed (car) because this party is going to be quite an adventure!

Snow White’s Winter Nights

O.K. so this party is more Brothers Grimm than it is King Arthur but we included it in this trinity anyway! Hosted in a giant Gothic cellar, this party will see you and yours being served by friendly tavern girls who will serve you your five course meal, as well as top up your glass with unlimited wine/beer.  To keep you entertained there will be magicians, acrobats and costumed actors to really bring the theme to life. Plus, this year (for the first time ever) the venue will be holding a winter market which can be included in your group’s plans (please enquire for availability.)

Trust us these fantastical parties are definitely a unique experience that need to be sampled (if you haven’t done so already!) Even if you aren’t a fan of all things dungeons and dragons, these events will have you immersed in the medieval atmosphere and wanting your own coat of arms in no time.

Christmas Parties In Birmingham | Rock N Roll Lives!

Being held in the city that gave birth to a new wave of British rock n roll, Christmas parties Birmingham style are ones that know how to let their hair down. The likes of Black Sabbath and Judas Priest came flying the flag for this heavier end of the musical spectrum in the 1970s whilst UB40, The Beat and Duran Duran staked their claim in the ska and pop worlds a decade or so later. The city’s rich and illustrious musical and cultural histories underpin everything Christmas parties in Birmingham do and this will most certainly be the case at 2011’s many festive events.

The spirit of rock ‘n roll lives on with ‘Grease Is The Word’, a party where all those budding Sandys and Dannys out there can combine forces on the dance floor to create feet-tapping, hip-shaking greatness. The wonderful venue hosting this series of musical corporate Christmas parties wouldn’t dream of letting you do all the work of course, oh no! Guests will enjoy the A-list treatment with a red carpet arrival and professional photographer capturing your entrance, so make sure to whip up those shiny quiffs and curl those stylish perms and recreate the Rydell High School scene. For an added bit of Grease-inspired Birmingham Christmas party fun why not appoint your party group’s organiser leader of the T-Birds (men) or Pink Ladies (women) and have them try to recreate the famous moves shown by their character from the film!

The dance floors of Brum are going to be seeing plenty of action this festive season, with ‘Dance Fever’ opening its doors to a troupe of West End performers who’ll be strutting their stuff up on stage whilst guests enjoy four sumptuous Christmas party courses, fine wine and a charity casino afterwards. Christmas parties in Birmingham will never quite be the same again….until 2012 of course!

Having a Murder Mystery Christmas Party

For a Christmas party with a twist, why not consider having a murder mystery theme to your annual social event? Whether it’s an exclusive party or an event shared with other companies, a murder mystery evening is a fun way to break the ice amongst people, and sort out the super sleuths from the deputy dawgs! You and your colleagues will have to pit your wits against the dastardly killer and try to figure out who it was, where when and why…

What is a murder mystery evening?

In case you didn’t know, a murder mystery evening is where a murder is staged at some point in the evening and it’s up to the guests to figure out who did it. There’s no need to panic, despite the name, no one gets murdered and the key suspects and characters are played by actors, giving the night a fabulously authentic feel. There will be characters there that help you along with useful information, but also watch out as there will be plenty of red herrings as part of the night’s proceedings! Can you sort out the truth from deceit and solve the murder before another takes place?

What can you expect?

Depending on your venue and they type of murder mystery evening you choose, the format of the evening may differ slightly, but most follow a similar schedule. As you arrive you’ll have time to settle and relax with your guests and perhaps enjoy a drink at the bar. Once you’ve had time for everyone to arrive, at some point the murder will occur and then it’s all systems go to try and solve the grizzly deed. You’ll be able to interact with the different characters to cross reference information and try to piece together the mystery. There will be plenty of suspicion and double crossing before the clues are finally pieced together to answer whodunit?! After you’ve solved the mystery it’s time to take your seats for a delicious meal and more drinks when you can chat and laugh with your colleagues and about the evening’s sinister events!

What different themes are available?

There are a variety of themes which is what makes the murder mystery package so popular. You can have a classic old fashioned murder mystery set in the Roaring 20s for an evening of glitz, glamour and assassination! For those fans of Agatha Christie’s classic murder mysteries, this is certain to be a hit. Perhaps something with a more contemporary feel would suit you and your party, in which case the Austin Powers themed evening in Birmingham could be right up your street! Or, if you prefer to hark back to your school days The Great St. Rinian’s Murder! Could be the perfect theme for your Christmas party.

What else makes the evening?

In addition to a fabulously acted out murder mystery, you and your guests will also enjoy a wonderful three course meal with festive table decorations and party novelties for your group to enjoy. You’ll be served after dinner coffees and be able to shake off the adrenaline from the evening on the dance floor. The resident DJ will play hit after hit until the early hours of the morning!
