To create a truly remarkable Christmas party you need the right balance of venue space, seasonal food and festive activities to keep your team delighted in merriment all evening.
Luckily for you, we’ve curated our top list of unique Christmas party venues in Yorkshire, plus our top recommendations for planning the ultimate work Christmas party – one that your employees will be talking about right up until next year! Enjoy, and happy planning.
Unique Work Christmas Party Venues In Yorkshire
First, let’s talk venues. Here’s what to consider for your work party venue.
Size (it really does matter!)
The space you choose to host your work’s Christmas party in will play a huge part in the success of the evening. Make it too large for your group size, and risk a lack of socialising, make it too small and risk people leaving early! Finding the right balance for your team is essential.
You also want to consider the layout of your work Christmas party venue. Ideally, opt for a space that can offer a range of different areas – from breakout spaces, more intimate areas (for those deep conversations!) and of course a dance floor (who doesn’t want to see Susan from accounts bringing out her best moves!).
Giving your team a beautiful space to escape outdoors to is also key to a great Christmas party location. Rather than a venue that backs onto a busy road, find a venue that offers a stunning view where your employees can get some air in beautiful festive surroundings.
Forget about the distractions of the outside world, whisk your team away to a private location where they can let their hair down and focus on their fellow employees! Opting for a more private venue also means you can decorate and plan the space exactly how you want it, and not worry about any chancers taking advantage of your free bar!
Where to host: top Christmas Party Venues In Yorkshire
So, what venues tick all the above boxes? We have three spectacular spaces across Yorkshire that are ideal for hosting your work Christmas party in.
Leeds – The Mansion
The Mansion, found just a short drive from Leeds city centre, can be found in the beautiful parkland of Roundhay. A 1820’s Regency Grade II listed building, it offers unrivaled views of the Upper Lake of Roundhay park and boasts a magnificent grand entrance.
Inside, you’ll find an abundance of space, from a large private dining area to a large hall ideal for dancing, topped off with an incredible glass domed ceiling.
Its stylish furnishing and beautiful lighting features (including a cascading central chandelier) makes it a truly elegant event space, perfect for a Christmas celebration to remember.
York – Howsham Hall
One of the most exclusive locations on our list, Howsham Hall is the ultimate luxury party venue. Situated in the exclusive surroundings of North Yorkshire’s idyllic countryside, the Grade 1 listed Jacobean beauty has hosted an abundance of Christmas parties over the years, making it an ideal choice for your company’s festivities.
Not only does the venue have an incredible selection of spaces to host your event in – from the drawing room to the grand hall, but it even provides luxury accommodation so your team don’t need to worry about getting home. That being said, the venue is only a 15 minute drive from York itself, making organising transportation easy.
This show-stopping venue can be hired exclusively from 40 to 100 guests, with a delectable selection of onsite catering available and experienced staff on hand to make hosting your work party a breeze.
Hull/Beverley – Rise Hall
Character, history, beautiful scenery – Rise Hall has it all. If you want to wow your team and really make a statement, then we’d highly recommend booking the exquisite Grade II listed country house near Beverley.
Furnished to the highest standard with oversized Christmas trees and magical decorations throughout the house, Rise Hall is the perfect backdrop for a spectacular Christmas party.
Have your guests dance in the Orangery, cosy up in the drawing room or library and even finish the evening with a breathtaking firework display in the beautifully landscaped gardens. The options are endless at Rise Hall, with the venue available to hire exclusively from 60 to 200 guests.
What to serve: top work Christmas party food
A great Christmas party has to have a scrumptious selection of food to enjoy (you need something to soak up all those bubbles!). Here are some delicious options your team will be sure to enjoy.
Christmas afternoon tea
Bring your teas together to share a selection of mini mince pies and festive treats. A festive afternoon tea provides a lighter option than a heavier sit down meal, ideal for those who want to dance all evening!
Keep your team mingling all night by providing their dinner via some mouth-watering festive canapés. A super sociable way to enjoy some Christmas treats.
A Christmas buffet complete with a festive cheese board is always a winner. Let your guests choose from the festive selection and graze throughout the evening.
Sit down dinner
If your company is planning on providing an annual update or even hosting its own internal awards on the night, then a sit down meal may be the perfect opportunity. Offer your guests a full Christmas dinner whilst they enjoy a talk from the CEO and celebrate the successes of the year.
What to do: festive entertainment
Whilst some businesses may opt to have a simple Christmas party with the usual – food, dancing and drinks – others prefer to create a more memorable affair by providing entertainment.
Magician or performing arts
Bring some culture to your festive celebrations with help from an awe-inspiring magician or even book some aerial arts performers to wow your guests.
Bring the classic Christmas playlist to life by booking a live band at your party, so your team can sing-along all night and have even more of an excuse to hit the dancefloor.
Finish the evening in style and make a toast to your company with a spectacular firework display.
