Virtual Christmas Party Planners

Christmas might look a little different this year, but it certainly isn't cancelled!

This year the theme for most work Christmas Parties will be ‘Virtual’ so let’s get partying for Christmas 2020!

We have been working hard with our suppliers to come up with some great ideas – a selection are listed below. For more information please contact us below, and a member of the team will be in touch.

Why should I organise a virtual Christmas Party?

You may have thought of giving the Christmas party a miss this year and that everyone is ‘zoomed out’.

Doing your party virtually is a way of thanking staff for working through a challenging year whilst having some fun and they won’t have to pay for a taxi home either! Organising something for your team means you can still celebrate the festive season safely especially with guidelines constantly changing.

If your guests are located all around the UK or even the world, organising an on-line virtual event ensures that no one misses out.

How does a virtual Christmas party work?

Basically it is taking the most popular conventional Christmas events and adapting them to the virtual world. It’s not dancing in your living room in front of the webcam but just good old fashioned fun!

We work with a variety of suppliers to bring you a variety of parties/activities on offer which will suit all age groups and budgets.

Most parties will have a virtual host included and they will guide you through your event.

How to choose the best virtual Christmas event

  • Consider how many guests are attending. If you have a large group of people you need to choose a party idea that keeps everyone entertained. This may mean that you need to split into smaller groups so people have a chance to catch up with colleagues after months not meeting up in person.
  • 2020 is the year of the zoom calls and online quizzes! Choose a theme which you haven’t done before which will engage everyone.
  • Fix a timeline – most ideas are usually 1-2 hours long
  • Choose a company to organise everything for you – you don’t have to worry about the content of the party and any technical issues are quickly sorted out. After all it is your Christmas too!
  • Make it fun!
  • If your budget allows, you may wish to organise activity boxes to be sent ahead of the event. These can include drinks kits, Christmas Hampers, Activity Hampers and Themed Hampers

Our Top 5 virtual Christmas suggestions (…but we have many more too!)

Chocolate making

Virtual Chocolate Making

A virtual Christmas event that’s a real treat for the taste buds.  Hosted by a master chocolatier, you’ll be taken through the amazing journey of how chocolate goes from bean to bar.  Its then hands on with the ingredients as everyone designs, creates & brands their very own unique box of Christmas themed chocolate delights.  In advance of your event, delegates are sent a pack containing chef’s hats, aprons and all the ingredients they need (and a surprise gift).


Virtual Christmas Cookery Experience

This fun and festive virtual cookery class is a great way to share that Yuletide cheer with your work colleagues! Learn new cookery techniques, show off your plating skills and socialise over fabulous food and drink. Each participant is sent an ingredient box directly to their home and the chefs guide the group to create a beautiful seasonal spread with a Christmas cocktail to begin the event, followed by a starter and a traditional Christmas dish made from scratch.  Finish off the festive feast with a Mince Pie or Gingerbread People Decorating Challenge!

As well as a traditional Christmas menu, our suppliers also offer various other cookery experiences and different 3-course cuisine based classes.


Virtual Cocktail Masterclass

Engage your team in an online cocktail masterclass to combat the stresses and strains of isolation.  Your team will have a fantastic experience racing each other by shaking, muddling, layering and creating their own perfect cocktail! Two and three drink packages are available including cocktail kits and ingredients


Virtual Comedy Christmas Show with a Party in a Box

A live-streamed private comedy show plus a Party in a Box which will be broadcast via YouTube and can be watched on any device.  Your company name can be mentioned (you can opt for an exclusive event if you wish), the party boxes can be personalised, your guests can interact and send messages on screen and a proper old-school disco for 2 hours is also included (requests can be placed via Instagram)!

Virtual Christmas Party Packages

You can choose from different pre-made packages or you can create your own custom made package. As an example, one of the packages would include a Christmas Quiz or Christmas Music Bingo plus a live comedy or magic act and a live party band (minimum number of guests apply).   To create your own package you can choose from a list of great team games, entertainment, music and hamper options.

A virtual Christmas party may not be what you had in mind to celebrate with your team this year but why not make yours as good as it can possibly be.
