Win 2 places for any Xmas themed night at the Forum, Stevenage

 

 When you are making plans for a company Christmas party there are a number of ‘boxes’ that have to be ticked but in order of preference the top three have to be venue, venue and venue.

No matter what your theme, whether you are planning to have awards, complicated dress codes, entertainment or even goodie bags and a photographer, the most important decision comes at the beginning because you simply must make sure that your venue is the right place to host the event you that you really want to hold.

There’s no point choosing a historic country manor house that can’t cater for the numbers or the entertainment that you had in mind. Along with being able to host the right number of people (and that can be done by subdividing some larger spaces) your venue should also be able to handle the needs of entertainment groups (that often means power supply and space), caterers (that requires a purpose built functioning kitchen) and vital extras such as good transport links like being close to a railway station or taxis and having access to hotel rooms (preferably on site).

For this reason there has been a long tradition of high quality Christmas events at The Forum in Danestrete, Stevenage.It’s predecessor was the Hertford Park Hotel and it was renowned as the place for superb Christmas and New Year entertainment.

Now having undergone a spectacular refurbishment the venue is once again set to be the place for seasonal parties and the events planned are booking up fast.

Along with availability for private parties, the venue that can cater for in excess of 600 people is hosting a number of Christmas themed events such as a Calypso party, an Elvis night and a Bollywood Xmas. When it comes to a company Christmas bash, how times do you hear the lament that ‘this is the fifth turkey dinner I have eaten this week’?

The Forum is hoping to change that with a change of menu and also a change of scenery and of course if you want to make a long night of it, there are rooms available as well.

So if you are still on the verge of making that vital decision on venue, call The Forum on 01438 533012 or email fcb@fairviewhotels.com and see just how this purpose built facility could make your Christmas party 2014 one to remember.
