Christmas party theme

Crashing and Singing Waiters

The big corporate event – organising it is intimidating, and creating a unique theme can seem impossible. Forget fretting over being creative, and sweating it out in front of the A1 brainstorm. We’ve done the hard work for you – here are five corporate events ideas that rock, stomp, crash, bang and wallop.

Sit Down Meal? Liven (and Louden) It Up with Crashing and Singing Waiters

Who said that sit down dinners had to be a dull affair of pâté and soup of the day? Crashing and singing waiters deliver starters with a song and deserts with a welcome encore. Just a word to the wise however – it’s probably best to leave this to the professionals, otherwise that soup of the day could well end up as an impromptu fancy dress.

Perfect for? Making your guests’ dining experience totally memorable.
