7 January Christmas Party Venues

With fewer than 10 weeks to go until Christmas, the festive season is almost upon us, and people are beginning to dig out their glad rags in time for the office party. But are they missing a trick?

What if – now hear us out – you had your shindig in January? It’s long been the practice in the retail and hospitality industries, and there can be some real benefits:

  1. You may save money on venue hire and catering, and you’ll have more flexibility when it comes to dates.
  2. It’s a great way to say thanks for the past year and set the tone for the year ahead. Plus, you can combine it with a kick-off and resolutions
  3. The top venues that are usually snapped up for the whole of December back in March are often available in January so you can check out some really exciting spots, rather than going with an overpriced, underwhelming local pub!
  4. Most crucially, it'll keep the party spirit alive into the dark depths of January, when social occasions seem to vanish into thin air!

So without further ado, here’s a selection of the best venues to consider for a January party.
