Christmas Event Ideas
After an incredibly successful (and frightening) Halloween we now have our sights set on all things bright and Christmassy - it is afterall “the most wonderful time of year”! Taking inspiration from last year’s most successful Christmas events, and combined with our new event launches, we bring you the most unique and fun things to do this Winter in one handy blog post! Whether it's a small sociable gathering, or a large corporate party of 200+ guests, we’ll do all the hard work in organising the festivities while you take the Christmas credit!
Christmas Chocolate Workshops
Perfect for groups of all sizes, families, Stag & Hen Parties, office outings and large corporate events, our Chocolate Workshops are a favourite among most! During your event, your group will create cream truffles in the shape of Christmas Puddings, make and taste fudge & marshmallows, taste Christmas-infused chocolate (think spiced apple, mulled wine and cinnamon), design chocolate trees and ball-balls with chocolate transfer and take part in a fun and interactive lesson in how chocolates are made from 'bean to bar'. That’s not all … If you’re looking to add the extra sparkle to your event, we can provide unlimited(!) prosecco, upgraded luxury decorations and a chocolate gift bag to your event for an extra cost per person.
Festive Escape Games (at your office or home!)
Based on the popular ‘Escape Game’ concept, this interactive event makes planning your office party easier than ever, combining your ‘Out of Office’ with your Christmas party venue! Lasting up to 2 hours, this immersive event starts with teams being locked in their offices/designated rooms and needing to work together to complete a series of tasks and interactive challenges before they can escape. Once teams have escaped their offices/rooms, your GPS-activated Tablets will guide teams to their end location (which could be a local bar, pub or restaurant) where a Festive meal and steaming Mulled Wine awaits!
Winter Multi-Activity Days
Avoid queuing for last-minute Christmas presents and book a jam-packed multi-activity day in various locations across the UK in the beautiful countryside for friends, family and loved ones! Please enquire for more information and details for your location!

Don’t forget to come up with a team name and photo – which forms part of the end presentation! On the day, our Event Coordinators will be on hand to deliver an event briefing, help with clues and provide an eagerly anticipated wrap-up presentation.
