The venue: The venue sets the first impression and the overall atmosphere of your Christmas office party – it also sets out what you can do in terms of entertainment and the other aspects of your plans.

The entertainment: The entertainment at a Christmas office party is what goes down in history. Pick out something great and it’ll set an incredible benchmark for years to come. But fail and it’ll be remembered as a Christmas party flop. When it comes to party entertainment, we’re the experts. In need of some inspiration? These three fun ideas are perfect for booking for your office Christmas party now.
Host a game show: Bring a bit of TV magic to your office Christmas party with your very own professionally hosted TV game show. Inspired by hit shows that are instantly recognisable, we’ve got a huge selection for you to choose from.

The best part about hosting a game show at your office Christmas party? It’s flexible to suit you. You can get the whole room involved or have select teams. And it’s up to you whether you run a single, long show or use it to keep guests entertained between the courses of their food.
Hire the professionals: When it comes to office Christmas office party entertainment, the professionals can entertain guests in their thousands. We’ve got a huge network of party entertainers that know exactly how to work a room. Bands, magicians, dancers, comedians, artists – we’ve got them all. We’ve even flown in celebrities to perform at events.
Whether you choose to have a set show time or have party entertainers walking through your crowds of guests during the pre-drinks, we’ve got exactly what you need to get that wow factor. If you’ve got an unusual idea, get in touch, we’d love to help you make your creative vision come true.

Suitable for groups from 8 to 2,000, we’ll bring you an authentic, powerful, and thrilling entertainment choice. The ancient Maori tribal ritual will completely immerse your group and we promise it’s something they’ll continue to talk about for years.
