Christmas Party Ideas For Adults

Take some time to think about what your guests are going to be comfortable with. Should the music be loud and lively, or mellow and in the background. Are your guests going to want to sing and dance, or would they prefer to watch, chat amongst themselves and listen? Getting your guests involved in planning your Christmas party helps to ensure you can accommodate everyone's tastes, and that your night will be a success.

For guests who want to dance, then a party band or DJ would be your first choice. For smaller parties where you still want live music, a solo singer guitarist or sax player can make a great choice.

For non musical entertainment, magicians and caricaturists are always a great hit with guests, or to wow guests as they arrive, meet and greet performers such as stilt walkers, fire performers and look alikes will add so much more excitement to their arrival.

Entertainment For Christmas Party At Home

Think about ways in which you can make your Christmas party a bit different. What could you do to greet guests as they arrive? How can you mix up the music to offer something your guests haven’t seen or heard before.

Why not try Christmas themed living tables or flower girls to serve the drinks? How about festive themed stilt walkers or fire artists to greet guests when they arrive? Or how about laying out the red carpet and booking comedy paparazzi to snap your guests as they’re celebs?

And talking about celebrities, how about booking look alikes to pose for photos with your guests? We've got Gordon Ramsey, Marilyn Monroe, Ali G, James Bond, David Brent, even The Christmas Grinch and many more.

For interactive party ideas, why not try local carol singers to lead guests in a traditional sing-along? Or perhaps a singer pianist who would take requests of your favourite christmas hits? Involving guests in the performance will be something unique that they'll remember forever

Unusual Christmas Party Ideas

If you really want to turn heads and mix things up, why not book a performance from the sword swallowing Mr Bones Sideshow? Or on the Greatest Showman circus vibe, try our Ultimate Circus Experience? If you need any help with ideas for your festive parties, just get in touch and we’ll be happy to make recommendations.

Christmas Party Photo Booths

One of the easiest Christmas party activities to host, and one of the most popular with guests, is a photo booth or selfie mirror. Photo booths can be delivered anywhere in the UK and will come with a selection of Christmas photo booth props, so that your guests can enjoy dressing up and posing for the camera. Read more...

Christmas Photo Booths

One of the great benefits of hiring a Christmas photo booth is that the photos can be branded with your event name & date (and your company logo for business events). Photos can be printed on the spot or delivered digitally. They make a great memento for guests to take home and remember your night, and if you're brave, to share on social media too!

Fun Christmas Party Activities & Ideas

A photobooth makes for great, fun Christmas party activities for your guests to get involved with. They’re a great way to break the ice and get guests interacting, and it's fun to see the hidden extrovert coming out in those people of whom you’d least expect it!
