The evenings are drawing in, Halloween and fireworks night are just around the corner, which means…. Christmas party season is upon us! You may have suddenly found yourself in charge of planning your company’s Christmas party – no pressure, right? As event management experts with a specialism in team building, we understand the need to turn your office party or winter conference into an unforgettable festive extravaganza, even when time is tight. In this blog, we’ll share 5 Christmas party entertainment ideas to add a touch of fun and excitement to your Christmas ‘do’ by adding some engaging activities….

These ideas are designed to breathe life into your Christmas ‘do,’ turning it into a memorable and enjoyable experience for all involved. Whether you’re seeking ways to encourage team spirit, create great memories, or simply add an extra layer of excitement to your festive gathering.

1. The Office Party Olympics:

Turn your office party into a competitive playground with a series of festive team games and challenges. Based on the popular TV series Master of Tasks, this office party event will include a whole host of creative and physical challenges. Modified to suit the preferences of your group these could be anything from a gift wrap competition, or a tree decorating contest, to a ski relay race or auditioning for the number one reindeer spot in Santa’s line up for 2023.

Create teams, award points, and crown the winning squad with a prize! With fun at the top of the agenda our lively host will work the room and get everyone involved. Laughs are most certainly to be had!

2. Christmas Game Show Extravaganza:

Hold your very own company game show! We’ll create Christmas-themed trivia questions and interactive rounds, with the option to add you own company based bespoke questions too. Invite employees to participate in teams and have the opportunity to win prizes. You can even have a “spin-the-wheel” segment or a ‘play your cards right’ round. Led by one of our professional comperes, you can be sure to add some festive cheer to your event with a Christmas Game Show. All of our game shows can be adapted with a Christmas twist, from Master of Tasks to Team Millionaire.

3. Indoor Mini Golf Magic:

Transform your conference room into a mini golf course! As your colleagues navigate each hole, laughter and friendly banter will create a light hearted atmosphere. Whether it’s a friendly competition or a casual entertainment add-on, mini golf provides a informal opportunity for your colleagues to bond. Mini golf is fun all year round, but at Christmas there is also the option to upgrade to imaginative holes with festive twists like navigating through a “candy cane forest” or taking a putt down a “chimney.” (subject to availability) We can provide scorecards and prizes for a little healthy competition.

4. Fairground Stalls & Carnival Fun:

Bring the magic of the fun fair to your Christmas party. We can set up fairground stalls with classics like hoopla, splat the rat, and a tin can alley. We’ll offer fun prizes and create a whimsical atmosphere that’ll transport everyone back to their childhood. Add on the High Striker for extra fairground fun. Christmas theming is optional, but something we thoroughly recommend.

5. Sports Spectacular with Pub Games Galore:

If your team is a bit sporty, consider holding a mini indoor sports tournament. From table tennis to foosball, or even a friendly basketball shootout, sports-themed games can bring out the competitive spirit and lots of laughter. Recreate the casual and fun ambiance of a pub with a variety of classic pub games. Set up darts, pool, skittle alley and even a quiz night with Christmas-themed questions. Your colleagues will appreciate the relaxed, laid-back atmosphere. Alternatively, make it a team event and we can turn the pub games into a full-blown tournament, with prizes for the top scorers!

With these Christmas party ideas, your office party or Christmas conference will be brimming with laughter and camaraderie. Team games, sports, game shows, fairground stalls, pub games, and indoor mini-golf will infuse the festivities with a playful spirit that everyone will enjoy. And these ideas aren’t just limited to the office Christmas party. All of the above can be facilitated at a venue of your choice, whether it’s a country mansion house or the local village hall.
