Work Christmas Party Ideas

Planning a memorable work Christmas party doesn't have to be stressful. From traditional festive dinners in elegant venues, to quirky and unique experiences that celebrate your area's vibrant culture, you're sure to find something for every team's taste.

Wherever you plan to hold your office Christmas party, we want you to be thinking about how much better it would be with show-stopping live entertainment from Alive Network! From live musicians who will fill your events with festive music and keep your colleagues dancing into the early hours, though to awe-inspiring entertainers who will meet, greet and wow your guests with feats of magic and wonder, you can trust Alive Network to bring your Christmas events life.

Corporate Christmas Party Ideas

In terms of finding work Christmas party venues, consider booking a restaurant with beautiful views over the local skyline for a classic holiday feast, or go for something more unconventional, like a themed escape room challenge followed by a cosy cocktail reception.

Your local area's rich history and iconic landmarks offer countless opportunities to infuse your party with a touch of magic. Don't forget to look out for local Christmas markets to explore, where you can shop with your colleagues for unique gifts and seasonal treats. Whatever you choose, make sure to plan ahead and book your preferred venue or experience well in advance to ensure a stress-free festive celebration.

For bigger events, why not check out our Christmas party bands or wow factor acts? These headline artists put on a show to capture everyone's imagination, helping to create a shared experience that all your team will love.

Office Christmas Party Ideas

Think about the ways in which you can make this year's party a bit different. What could you do to greet staff and guests as they arrive? Why not try a selection of Christmas themed stilt walkers or fire artists? Or how about laying out a red carpet and hiring comedy paparazzi to snap pictures as if your staff are celebs?

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

Christmas Party Photo Booths

One of the easiest work Christmas party activities to arrange, and one of the most popular with staff, is to hire a photo booth or selfie mirror. Booths can be delivered anywhere in the mainland UK, and will come with a selection of Christmas photo booth props, so that staff can have fun dressing up and posing for the camera. Read more...

Staff Christmas Party Ideas

One of the great features of hiring a Christmas photo booth for your office party, is that the photos can be branded with your company name and a special message. These can be printed immediately or delivered digitally. They're a great memento for staff to take home and remember what a great night they had, and if you're brave, the digital copies can be fun to share on social media to show the human side of your business!

Fun Work Christmas Party Ideas

We know staff are always looking for fun Christmas party activities to get involved with, and a Christmas photobooth delivers on all levels. It's a great way to break the ice and get colleagues interacting, and it's fun for staff to see the hidden extrovert coming out in their work mates.
