Tis the year for fun and festivities!

We might be a good few months away from hanging up stockings on the wall, but our event-planning elves are hard at work here at ACF HQ crafting the perfect Christmas party events for December 2022.

From game shows to entertainment nights, outdoor activities to baking challenges, we’ve devised a host of memorable corporate events that are a far cry from dull office parties spent awkwardly reaching for topics of conversation over plastic cups of wine.

Whether you’re ready to throw yourself into face-to-face frivolity or looking for a virtual Christmas party that’ll go down better than last year’s lacklustre Zoom quiz, ACF have got you covered – wherever you are in the world! We also offer hybrid Christmas dos and outdoor Christmas event options too!

Whatever you’re after, we’re your go-to for Christmas parties in the South West (and beyond) that your team will rave about for years to come. The hardest part? Deciding which event to go for! Here are 6 of the best corporate Christmas party ideas that we can help you bring to life:

  1. Competitive company caper with our popular game shows.
    Put your team to the test with our unique take on a wide variety of much-loved game shows, such as Could I Lie To You?, Name That Tune and Team Millionaire. Fancy indulging in a selection of the classics you used to watch back in the good ol’ days? Check out Games For A Laugh!

Our lively comperes will lead the fun, ensuring an afternoon or evening of interactive entertainment to keep everyone on their toes. We can even incorporate company-specific questions to make the event feel super bespoke.

If you’re looking for something seasonal, take on the ‘Christ-master of Tasks’. We’ve put a festive spin on our popular ‘Master of Tasks’ event that combines rip-roaring comedic antics and tense teamwork with hilariously wacky results!

Inspired by the beloved TV show, your team will face a series of yuletide challenges that are bound to take a turn for the absurd as your critical thinking skills are put to the test.

Our compere will take on the role of ‘Master of Tasks’ to allocate the all-important points and crown the eventual winners. Suitable for both daytime and evening celebrations, there’s still time to book the event that had attendees ‘aching from laughing’.

  1. High-octane hijinks with our joyful games nights.
    Still looking to burn off some steam before the year is through? Get ready for the games tournament of the century!

Pick your dream line-up of mildly athletic activities, and we’ll provide all the necessary equipment to ensure that your Christmas games tourney is one for the history books. Choose between table football, crazy golf, Jenga, skittles, darts, and more, for a fun-filled function designed to bring teams together as you battle it out.

We’ll host proceedings and keep an eye on the scores, so you can focus on competing for a coveted championship place.

  1. A night of top-notch entertainment to help you let your hair down.
    If you’re all quizzed out, opt for a night of quality entertainment instead.

Always the first to figure out whodunnit? If you fancy yourself as the next Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot, put your amateur detective skills to the test with a murder mystery party. Work together to solve a series of clues to uncover the murderous miscreant – add a three-course meal with flowing drinks for much-needed sleuthing sustenance.

If you’re more into throwing shapes than accusations, dance the night away with a silent disco or line-up of live music. Or, if you fancy a more sophisticated soiree, we could organise a casino night or cocktail party – complete with mix ‘n’ mingle performers and luxe decor to help set the scene.

  1. Outdoor activities for adrenaline-fuelled adventurers.
    Who said the festive period had to be all about glitz and glamour?! If you’re a team of thrill-seekers, why not enjoy the bracing winter breeze and book one of our country pursuits?

How about a spot of 4×4 off-road driving followed by warming glasses of mulled wine and delicious mince pies? Our Mud & Mulled Wine event allows you to test your skills on our purpose-built course in the Mendips, navigating dips and ditches all within the beautiful countryside setting at Aldwick Estate.

Weather-proof your al fresco event with a marquee, or get cosy with toasty fire pits and blankets. We could also arrange outdoor performers, indulgent catering and a fireworks display for a Christmas party with a bang!

Prefer terra firma? Swap off-roading for archery, axe-throwing or clay pigeon shooting.

  1. Learn a new skill with our ‘Make & Bake’ activities.

From fragrance making to cocktail making, ice sculpting to wreath making, we’ll bring your out-there imaginings to life with our expert-led workshops.

If you’re looking to turn up the heat, enjoy some friendly competition with our Christmas baking challenge that’ll see you go head-to-head to bake your very own showstoppers. No soggy-bottomed sponges allowed!

Alternatively, engage your sweet tooth and try our delicious chocolate-making challenge. You’ll be tasked with creating the hottest new chocolate brand in town – complete with logo-designing, jingle-singing, packaging-perfecting and actual chocolate-creating. Enjoy an afternoon of Apprentice-style tasks without the fear of being fired from the boardroom!

  1. Props & equipment for themed Christmas parties.
    If you’ve bagged the perfect venue but it’s not entirely on theme, we offer dry hire of a wide range of Christmas party-themed props and equipment from our well-stocked stores to help you transform the space.

Testimonials from past festive partygoers.

Whatever your requirements, our team will happily work with you to create and organise a Christmas event to remember. Don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what some of our happy clients had to say about working with us on their company Christmas events:

‘I cannot thank the team at ACF Teambuilding & Events enough. I came to them at very late notice at one of the busiest times of the year, but they were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, and the end result was excellent. I really enjoyed working with them and will do so again in the future!’ – Sarah, Project Manager at Dyson.

‘We gave ACF Teambuilding & Events a not-so-straight-forward brief for a Christmas party fit for 350 employees with different expectations of what the party should be! Thankfully, ACF were completely up to the job and found a venue that catered to all tastes.

I’ve had nothing but positive feedback since. I even had people congratulating me on the night for such a fantastic event! All of the praise, however, should go to ACF Teambuilding & Events and their well-organised team. Storm and Mark were always available to assist and provided a great service. We will be using them again!’   Lawrence, Sales & Marketing Manager.
