Christmas Top Tips From a Professional

Does the thought of organising your Christmas Party in June bring you out in a cold sweat? Well, one of our Business Development Executives, Hannah, is here to give you a few tips and tricks to make sure the early bird actually catches the worm.If you get in there fast you get the venue you want, the menu you desire and, on the day of your party you can sit back, relax and enjoy the experience.

For me the key to the best Christmas parties are:

  • Menu choices
  • Timings
  • Guest list
  • Entertainment

Make sure you get in there early, if you know you want a magician or there is a specific DJ you like, the chances are others will too! So, as soon as you’ve made a decision, put down that deposit! If you plan systematically over a few months, you’ll keep on top of it all.


What could you do to make your party stand out this year?

Have a standing party! It gives your party more of a flow and with less chairs and tables you can have more exciting entertainment. If you pick somewhere like One Moorgate Place, who work with in house chefs we can create theatre with some of the dishes on offer by preparing them at stations around your space. It’s such a simple (and surprisingly cheap!) way of entertaining your guests.


What makes One Moorgate Place the right kind of venue for a Christmas party?

Well, the space is perfectly suited for parties of most sizes, if you’re looking for something intimate (and looking to avoid the nightmare that can be shared parties) our Small Reception Room would work and if you’re looking for a large party for 400 we can make that happen too with our Great Hall and Main Reception Room.

We don’t just rely on the beauty of our rooms; the experience you receive from us is completely personalised, you’ll have an event and banqueting manager to tailor our provision to you and every organiser is invited to a food and wine tasting to make sure your menu suits your party perfectly.
