Christmas is a time for celebration and an opportunity to reward staff for their hard work throughout the year. Most staff Christmas party ideas consist of a Christmas meal and a few drinks. Although a welcome chance for staff to let there hair down away from their desk, for many staff, this is just one extra Christmas meal. Why not consider some alternative staff Christmas Party ideas that will give staff a unique experience to remember and will usher in the festive break with a bang.

6 Staff Christmas Party Ideas

  1. 1. Chisel all the Way – Ice Carving

Though the coldest time of the year, there is something magical about a pristine white landscape of snow and ice. Our Chisel all the way is a fantastic Christmas party idea for capturing this magic as teams, guided by our ice carving experts attempt to carve their very own Santa’s head sculpture. For the ultimate ice carving event, our Winter Wonderland event at the ice carving event at London’s unique Ice Bar provides an extra special experience. This amazing venue is unique as the UK’s only permanent bar made of ice.
