Surprise! You’re running out of time: 10 last minute Christmas Party venues

We’ve hardly kiboshed Halloween on the head and yet I have the audacity to say that booking your office Christmas party now is “last minute”. But in the heady world of the events industry, most people get their work Christmas do booked in July. So yeah, I stand by my words! While you were busy thinking about Love Island and whether or not to get a spray tan before going on holiday (you should not have done that), loads of venues were getting booked up for the festive season.

Never fear – we’ve got a raft of hidden gems and secret venues that all those early-booking-dweebs don’t know about (only kidding – please continue to book xmas parties in June it’s very helpful to our business model).
