Christmas Parties Post Pandemic 2021 

Its September and we know we need to start thinking about Christmas, and after the past 18 months let’s face it, we want to party!

However, with warnings of a third wave and delayed openings etc, we’re all mindful that we don’t want to get too carried away. So, what do you do?

As a company you want to reward your employees and team for coping with challenging and extreme times. You may have all been working remotely and still not all back into the office. The Christmas Party is the perfect opportunity to get your team back together and strengthen the communication and motivation of your team in a fun and light-hearted way.

How about something different then?

Instead of the same old annual Christmas night out on the town, have you thought about getting your team out into the fantastic Derbyshire countryside or Peak District beauty for a group activity? Not only is this more Covid safe, but being in the outdoors is proven to improve wellbeing. We have a selection of fantastic experiences from Hunted, Bubble Football, Clay Shooting and even a Woodland Assault Course. We also have more relaxing activities such as Yoga that can be done indoor and outdoor.

We know as part of your Christmas event you may need to incorporate meetings. We can arrange a meeting space and conference facilities away from the hustle and bustle of the city. In most cases this can be exclusive to your Company. Not only can we find you suitable facilities, but we can also arrange food to suit your event. Why not try one of our amazing food experiences and bring your team together in creating and eating a meal together.

Perhaps you still want a cracking night out, but sharing a location with several different companies and hundreds of people just isn’t as appealing as it has been in the past. Why not hire a country house with a Murder Mystery themed evening. We can provide a bespoken catering and entertainment package that’s just right. Knowing the venue is Covid safe and for your personal use will give you and your employees reassurance.

Covid safe countryside packages

You may still want a good night out but are hesitant on heading into a city centre location. Our personal and popular Countryside Minibus Tours allow you to visit some lovely local real ale pubs, and choose from one of the great gourmet pubs for a fantastic meal. Garden rooms have been popular this year and suit large groups. With this great experience, a night in the country doesn’t have to mean staying in one location. With your own personal party bus you can explore as many local venues as you like. And we’ll do all that planning for you.

For a real alternative and a very 2021 experience, really embrace the outdoors and sign up for one of our Whiskey & Gin Fire Star Gazing Experiences. Based at our private country estate, this experience can be exclusive or shared between a couple of groups. Being outdoors and with numbers limited this really is Covid safe. Huddle around a real open fire sipping whiskey and gin cocktails whilst taking in the stars. We can bring additional entertainment into the mix too if you fancy?

We’re ready when you are
