There’s no doubt that the nights are starting to draw in and, once you’ve carved your pumpkin and written your name with a sparkler, it’ll soon be time to turn your thoughts to Christmas.
If you’re planning your company’s Christmas party, however, it’s likely that the festive season will already be high on your agenda. In fact, in a survey of corporate Christmas party organisers, 78% of responders were planning to book their venue before the end of August. And 7% had booked before the end of March! But booking the venue is just the start, another vital element when planning a memorable corporate party is the entertainment.
Your Christmas party is one of the few occasions each year that brings all your employees together in one place. Not only is it an opportunity for them to relax with their colleagues, but it’s also a chance to improve long-term working relationships.
With that in mind, you may be considering adding some team building activities to the event. However, Christmas parties aren’t the place for muddy assault courses. With such a diverse spread of ages and tastes, the more physical-style activities risk alienating as many people as they include. And, after everyone has worked hard all year, your aim should be an occasion that’s enjoyable for all. Why not utilise magic to offer a fun and inclusive team-building exercise to kick off your celebrations? My indoor-based team building delivers a real bonding experience as participants learn a skill they’ve never tried before.
Whether you’re holding a small or large-scale event, having a sit-down dinner or a drinks party, I can help create a lively atmosphere.
If your staff communicate mainly by email, many may not have spent time together in a social environment. To ensure your event is a success, you need to get them mingling. By hiring me to perform close up magic at the beginning of the event, I can help to do just that. I’ll work my way around the room, performing to small groups of people and encouraging them to participate. The buzz this generates will bring more people over and give them something to talk about, building new face-to-face relationships.
A cabaret performance is also a great talking point. It’s important to deliver something that will entertain everybody. A live band could appeal to some more than others, and comedy can often divide opinion. But magic – truly good magic – will captivate everyone. My cabaret show is the perfect after-dinner entertainment and will ensure your party is a memorable occasion. After all, who doesn’t love being wowed by things they can’t explain?
