Last-minute Christmas party ideas in London & Brighton

Christmas parties are the ideal excuse to drop that work front and get silly with your mates and colleagues. If you haven’t got around to organising your festive social yet, then here are some last-minute office Christmas party ideas in London and Brighton that might sizzle your nizzle.

1. Shared Christmas Parties in London & Brighton

If you work for a small business but still want to go big, a shared Christmas party could be a great option, and many of them still have spaces left.

You could join over 1,000 guests for Spectacular at Old Billingsgate in London.  The iconic 20th Century decor is a grand backdrop for an evening packed with entertainment including live music and show girls.

Partial to Jazz and gin? Then why not join this shared Christmas party night at Brighton Racecourse. A 1920s themed night that promises a welcome drink, magnificent feast and plenty of tipple.

If you are looking for something like this in London then you could check out Wonder nights at The Artillery Garden at the HAC, a party inspired by the Mardi Gras - taken straight from the streets of New Orleans.

2. Themed office Christmas party ideas

Why not transform your office into a party venue for Christmas? The planning itself will be great for team building, which could be a persuading factor if you are going to take this idea to the boss. Here are some top christmas party theme ideas to get you inspired:

  • Classy and glam: 1920s swing dance
  • Sassy and fun: Cabaret and Burlesque
  • Gothic twist: Nightmare at Christmas
  • Alternative spin: Stranger Things (creative fairy lights)
  • Old-school and simple: Back to School
  • Playful and silly: Gamers Paradise (poker, pool, darts, PS2)

You could even hire our mobile game to shake things up a bit, which tasks players with a hilarious and frantic 5-minute challenge in which they attempt to succeed in helping the ghost of Plumbottom. We would recommend making sure the photocopier is off limits though - nobody wants to see that.

3. Pubs with a twist in London or Brighton

A christmas party at the pub may not sound like an exciting prospect, but head to one of our escape room venues and you will be pleasantly surprised.

People’s Park Tavern, East London

This hidden gem has an award winning hacienda garden, an art gallery and one of our mysterious hidden game rooms. You could book yourself a tasty Christmas meal before you head into our hidden escape room to solve the clues and you can even book out one of their teepee tents for your group.

The Four Thieves, South London

A great place for gamers, this pub has a retro-arcade, table tennis, pool and a mini motor GP track. Their Arcade Christmas Package is perfect for groups who will enjoy some friendly competition - top that off with some playtime with Lady Chastity and you’re set for an epic night of gaming.

The Black Lion, Brighton

The perfect location if you are looking for Christmas parties in Brighton. You could enjoy indulging in their Christmas menu before your game and party all night with the DJ or move on to the South Lanes for more crimbo antics.

There has been so much drama in 2016 with Brexit and Trump flooding our social feeds, so we hope these ideas give you some inspiration for your Christmas party. If you are just planning to go out with your other half for crimbo we also have some silly Christmas date ideas that might float your boat.
