Top 10 Office Christmas Party Ideas

Christmas is a few months away, we're sure it comes round quicker every year! So, if you're hosting or planning a party for employees or colleagues this Christmas, it's time to start planning your event's entertainment. Here are our suggestions...

Christmas office parties are renowned for getting employees very drunk, and in some cases getting so drunk that photocopying certain body parts becomes a good idea. However, the photocopier shouldn’t be the main source of entertainment at any Christmas do. So you can start thinking about your Christmas party early. Here are our top 10 favourite Christmas office party ideas: 

1. Singing Waiters

If you’re going to let your staff feel like VIP’s for the night, you might consider hiring waiters and waitresses to serve them snacks and drinks. However, regular waiters and waitresses aren’t all that entertaining - why not have singing waiters instead? They’ll be inconspicuous until it’s time to perform, so your guests are in for a big surprise.

2. Carol Singers

Do you want your office party to be full of Christmas spirit and cheer? Sounds like you need some skilled carol singers at your event! You can find a range of different carol singers depending on your needs, from Victorian carol singers to Santas Singers.

3. Pianists

If you want a classy atmosphere at your Christmas party, you could always hire a professional Pianist to do that for you. Many can play just about any genre you fancy!

4. Caricaturists

A Caricaturist will add some fun to your event, allowing your guests to take home a lovely souvenir at the end of the night too. Many will even mingle and laugh with your guests!

5. Comedy Acts

Do you think your staff could do with a laugh or two at this Christmas party? There are loads of comedy acts to choose from; take your pick from a Dame Edna lookalike and a group of fantastic comedy illusionists! You could even hire a comedy act regularly seen on the TV if you have the budget.

6. Look-a-Likes

Look-a-likes can be a lot of fun and usually help to break the ice at a Christmas office party. You could have the hilarious Captain Jack Sparrow, cringeworthy David Brent, or even our Highness; The Queen!

7. Toastmasters

Whether you need a toastmaster, quizmaster, compere, or host, Mark Jones can do the job for you. Having worked with celebrities on many jobs he knows how to handle any situation and will really enhance your office party.

8. Comedy Paparazzi

Comedy Paparazzi play the part of real paparazzi perfectly, right down to the unshaven face and grubby raincoat. They can help your guests to feel like stars for the night, and in a few days everybody will be able to view and purchase the pictures, or ‘exclusives’!

9. Magicians

Everybody loves a good magician, and the majority of magicians on our books can perform close up table magic perfect for an office party. Whether you want a sleight of hand magician like Joe Stone or a mind reader like Doug Segal, we’ve got it covered!

10. Giant Games Consoles

The Wii console offers fantastic entertainment for everybody, but the GIANT Wii console is even better. Four people at a time can play any one of our great games (we have every game in stock), and afterwards you can even award medals to the best players.
