Murder Mystery

Perfect for smaller teams, a ‘who done it’ with optional Christmas themes is the perfect activity for your team. Can they work together to crack the mystery or is the murderer among you? 

Roller Disco

We’re thinking of fun Christmas tunes and carols whilst you show off not only your dance moves but your skating skills! Do you have what it takes? 

Ice Bar

Get in the Christmas spirit with a few warming beverages set in an ice bar that’s sure to give your team fun memories. 


Experience ultimate skill with indoor acrobats and fire breathers at a circus. Excitement and fun packed into every minute to really set Christmas 2024 apart from previous Christmas party ideas, you’re sure to win! 

Escape Room

Similar to a murder mystery, you can’t go wrong with an escape room for a memorable, fun experience for your team. 


Ready to get active and burn off some steam before the Christmas break? There’s a range of activities perfect for those colder winter months such as indoor rock climbing, indoor assault courses and a range of activities based on popular TV shows that are bound to excite your colleagues.

Food Class

If you’re an office of foodies, a food class might be the perfect option for your team. Follow a cooking class together before enjoying the food you’ve made, plus a little bit of healthy competition as to whose is the best! 

Theme Park

Get your adrenaline pumping with a trip to a theme park, there’s something for everyone from theme park stalls to large drops and loop-the-loops, it’ll have your team laughing, screaming and enjoying themselves from the offset. 

Show Time

If booking a panto might get an ‘oh no you didn’t moment’ in the office, booking a local theatre show, live music gig or comedian. Supporting a local theatre or local live music festival could be the perfect solution for a range of people and preferences in the office.

Classic Christmas

How about a classic sit down Christmas party with good food and good entertainment, and we’re not talking about a magician! Opt for a live band or musician instead.
