We don’t know where the year has gone here at AOK Events, as we head towards July already and summer is proving to be oh so British again (yes rain, we mean you)!
Don’t get us wrong, we love the summer, but we can’t help getting excited about the Christmas party planning that is now in full swing! With loads of exciting new venues recently opening their doors, planning your Christmas party never promised to be so much fun. Here are three of our favourite venues with in house activities that will take your party to the next level and make sure that nobody is stood by the buffet feeling bored.
THE CRYSTAL MAZE
The first venue that we couldn’t be more excited about is, The Crystal Maze. The 90’s were the golden years for game shows, with unforgettable theme tunes and legendary catchphrases, we all aspired to be on one. This year, right here in London, someone’s has granted 13 year old us’ wishes, recreating the iconic Crystal Maze experience!
With the help of maze masters (sadly not Richard O’Brien, how good would that have been?) and four unique zones, teams earn crystals for time in the ultimate challenge; the crystal dome. Just like on TV! The Crystal Maze is a one of a kind experience - Prepare your eight-man team and head off to face the challenges of one of the most iconic British game shows of all time! If you’re team in in their 30’s this will literally be all of their Christmas’s coming at once!
Crazy golf, street food and cocktails; who doesn’t love that combo? Some legend had a stroke of genius and bought the very best of all three together.
Themed with a 1920’s English countryside golf club in mind, Swingers is a unique venue that involves everything we love all in one place, all year round.
Want to play crazy golf but can’t wait for drinks after? Not to worry, enjoy pit stops along your way at one of the cocktail bars scattered around the venue. Hungry? Grab amazing grub from one of the three street food stalls available. Planned to play but the weather has taken a turn for the worst? You still can - it’s all inside! It seems Swingers was created with Christmas parties in mind!
THE COURTHOUSE SHOREDITCH
The new bowling alley within The Courthouse Shoreditch has to be on our hot list. Urban chic bowling alleys combined with a spacious playroom together make the ultimate Christmas party space. Available for exclusive hire, the stylish setting allows for the perfect party atmosphere! Get your game face on and battle it out to become your company bowling champion, get some music on a dance the night away or simply lounge around and have a chat in the luxurious seating area. Either way, this space makes for a successful Christmas party with something for everyone!
