Premier planning – The office Christmas party is the highlight of many corporate calendars, but the task of planning such an event can quickly become very daunting. For a stress-free Christmas, it’s a good idea to choose a venue that comes with a dedicated professional event planner who can take care of all the party-prep, from seating to Santa. Cardiff City Stadium’s ‘Christmas Coordinators’ can do as much, or as little, as you want to make your party a night that no one will forget.

Party the night away at Cardiff’s most iconic stadium, with two packages to choose from, and if they don’t quite foot the bill the team can cover all your festive needs by creating bespoke packages just for you and your team. To make a booking, please telephone the Christmas Coordinators on 02920 643 785 or email enquiries@cardiffcityevents.co.uk

Theming – Think about choosing a theme for your festive entertainment, it’s a great way to tie all the celebrations together, it elevates the night for you and your colleagues and sets the night off with a bang.

Location, Location, Location – When choosing the venue for your office Christmas party it’s important to think about a central location that will be accessible to the whole team.

Festive feasting – What’s on the menu is a sure-fire-way to impress your guests. A classic Christmas roast is a great way to get the whole team feeling the festive vibes. The food at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane is freshly prepared by onsite chefs and never fails to be the highlight of many office parties. Committed to using locally sourced seasonal produce, where possible, guests can expect tasty traditional favourites like roast turkey with all the trimmings, roast carrots, sprout and bacon fricassee and roast potatoes.

Party Packages – You shouldn’t be wrapping all your presents the night before Christmas and you shouldn’t be booking your office party in December either. Score early this Christmas and get ahead of the game by securing the office shin-dig as soon as possible. October is optimum time to get your enquiry in, while there is still availability. To avoid blowing your Christmas budget and minimise the planning stress, you can opt for a Christmas party package where everything is included. From dinner to dancing, styling and theming, Swansea City A.F.C’s Liberty Stadium, have got fabulous Christmas packages that include everything you need to organise a magical party.
