It’s hard to find excitement in throwing a party when it’s cold and grey outside and there’s rain and gale force winds. And on the flip-side, we know it seems a little odd to be organising your Christmas party when summer is just around the corner… But, it’s a Christmas party and it’s easily one of the best nights of the year, where everyone lets their hair down. So the pressure is on to be bigger and better year on year. There are a few things to consider when choosing your Christmas party venue, it’s easy to book a beautiful venue to impress guests on arrival, but what about the rest?
If you’re expecting 500 people at your Christmas party don’t select a venue that caters for 1000+. The Pavilion at The Tower of London is split into two rooms, one suitable for smaller party sizes and the other for much larger groups. Did you know The Pavilion also does shared party nights, perfect for groups of 10 or more.
Whether it’s a modest Christmas party, or pulling out all the stops, keeping within your budget is key. The Pavilion offers full decor, theming and ambient lighting, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Not even Christmas crackers!
Dealing with a multitude of outside services can get confusing when it comes to coordinating, receiving and paying invoices, delivery times on the day, and of course, the possibility of forgetting something. The Pavilion has a complete party package, so all you and your guests need to do is turn up and celebrate.
More than likely your guests will be utilising public transport, so you want to ensure that your venue is within walking distance of bus or train services. The Artillery Garden is situated in the heart of London, in close proximity from Liverpool Street, Old Street and Moorgate stations. There are also several accommodation options in this area, meaning that guests that travel from afar can book themselves a room, a short distance from the party.
Having a venue manager can not only ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day, but can also be imperative in the planning aspect of things. As they live and breathe the venue, they know what does and doesn’t work and can help turn your vision for your event into a reality. The Pavilion offers full, on-site event management before, during and after the event. We also pride ourselves on working with Create Food and Party Design – award winning caterers and their excellent waiting staff.
