Ho-ho-how to throw an epic Christmas party for your creative brand

Friday 15th September 2023

If you’re the designated Christmas party planner this year – the ‘chosen one’ – the pressure is probably on. But creative brands thrive on inventive ideas, right?

Let us take the heat off a bit. We’ve hosted parties for some incredibly well-known brands like Nike, Heineken and Facebook. We’ve helped to deliver some weird and wonderful events over the past ten years. Events are our thing, so we’re here to help you craft your perfect festive party.

If you want to throw a bash that will be marked in history as ‘the best Christmas party we’ve ever had’, read on…

Nail that theme

Creativity is in your brand’s DNA, so let’s not hold back on your Christmas party. Whether you’re leaning into a winter wonderland, a retro holiday or a full-blown pop culture extravaganza, pick a theme that gives your team a chance to express their creative flair.

And if you’re not too sure, that’s fine too, our packages are designed to encompass all the essentials: edgy décor, bright lights and top entertainment, all against a backdrop of industrial red brick.


Deck the halls

It’s Christmas, so we’re officially allowed to go all out on the decs. Fairy lights, giant custom-made baubles, elaborate branded table settings, light-up letters – you name it.

Each of our six distinctive party rooms at Victoria Warehouse comes to life with an sparkles, light production and an abundance of Christmas decor to help set the festive scene.


Feast mode on

No party is complete without a feast. At Victoria Warehouse, you don’t need to worry about getting some sorry-looking slice of Turkey hiding under a pile of soggy sprouts.

We work with award-winning caterers that have crafted out two incredible menu offerings – an indulgent three-course option or a casual street food style for those who prefer to mingle with a bowl of loaded waffle fries in one hand. All our rooms are licensed until 1 am, so after an evening of dancing, singing, or hardcore raving, some late-night munchies might be in order.


Let the drinks flow

You’ve got to start the night as you mean to go on, right?

So, drinks. All our guests get a complimentary festive cocktail to kick-start the evening. Then, you can either take advantage of our private bar, set up a fully inclusive drinks package or give your team tokens that can be traded in for bevvies of their choice.


Amp up the team spirit

Christmas is a time for giving, so why not use your festive bash as an excuse to show your team some love? No, we’re not talking mistletoe. Handing out awards or tokens of appreciation is just a nice way to set the tone for the evening and celebrate your employees’ stellar efforts.


The personal touches

There are so many ways to make your night feel unique and personal to your brand. It might be the music, it might be a pop-up themed bar, a game of beer pong or live entertainment. Maybe you want to set up a photo booth or a selfie mirror so there’s some evidence from the night before (or maybe not).


Plan hard, party harder

Your Christmas party is an opportunity for your creative brand to shine, celebrate your successes and have some fun with your team. With your company values at the heart of it all, whatever the creative event brief, we’re here to help.


Whether you’re an office team of 50 or a company of 2,000 plus, we have six spectacular event spaces to choose from, all with our unmistakable warehouse urban charm.

Choose from the rustic aesthetic of The Bays or the industrial chic of The Archives, and not to mention our newest, event space, The Tobacco Stores.

Our events team are here to collaborate and support you in delivering your vision. If you want to chat through your Christmas party package options or take a look around, get in touch on or give us a call: 0161 974 1200
