If so, and you’re organized, you’ll already have booked somewhere, have paid a deposit and sent out Save the Dates! If you’ve not booked anything yet, I can see you scratching your head, still trying to think of somewhere new and interesting, to jazz things up a bit.
It’s definitely harder for smaller groups to find the right venue for their staff party, but a top tip is to join a convivial event that’s already happening. For instance, have you thought of hiring a table or two, or even a carriage one December evening on Puffing Billy? Or, depending on your numbers, booking the entire train (60 to 80 pax)!!
Did you know you can charter a train for any night of the week – but check availability, because November/December dates are getting pretty booked up already. Many companies book a function aboard the Dinner & Dance Trains leading up to Christmas, which is perfect for a small group, as you can travel on one of the scheduled departures (sharing in the festive atmosphere with other happy revelers).
So call today on 9757 0700 and discuss your Xmas event with Puffing Billy’s helpful staff and book your party. It’ll feel so good to tick it off your To Do list and send out that Save the Date. Your colleagues will love you for booking them on Puffing Billy for Christmas. :-)
