Planning your next Christmas celebration and looking for ideas? Then find out why you should have your next Christmas party at lunchtime instead of the evening.
Host your Christmas party at lunchtime
Potential for a wider choice of venues
With fewer London Christmas party venues likely to be fully booked at lunchtime, you stand a better chance of finding the space you want.
A lunchtime Christmas party could be much cheaper
The prime time for Christmas parties is Thursday and Friday evenings, when slots can become fully booked six months in advance. In contrast, there is often much less demand on weekday afternoons, when the cost of hiring Christmas party venues in London can be considerably lower.
It’s easier for your guests to travel home after the event
Although some underground lines do operate a night service on Friday nights and Saturday nights, it’s still easier for your guests to get home during the daytime or early evening, when there’s a wider choice of tube, rail and bus services available. This will be particularly helpful for guests living further away or outside of London’s public transport network.
Work / life balance
Celebrating during the day means your guests can still head home to their private lives after the working day is done. Parents are likely to already have childcare covered, rather than finding someone for the evening. With December being chock-a-block with Christmas celebrations, it can be difficult to compete with guests’s social lives, so a lunchtime party will ensure your guests can manage two parties in one day (which happens more often that not over December!).
