Deck the hall! Setting the scene - Miles Sayer, Event Sales Manager (Tanner Warehouse & Six Storeys on Soho)

Setting the scene of your event starts with how it’s lit. Use AV lighting for a unique colourful set-up, our in-house production team are perfect at using lighting to bring events to life. I also recommend using candles and fairy lights to add an atmospheric and festive touch to your event. This set up looks particularly good at Tanner Warehouse. Whether you want a full winter wonderland or just a little bit of Christmas cheer, festive decorations really help all your guests get in the holiday spirit.

Good food is a good mood - Rayna Chauhan, Senior Sales Manager (City Collection)

Excite your guests with a creative twist on Christmas dinner. Our Christmas seated dinner has it all, from the classic turkey with all the trimmings to the quirky Eggnog Custard Tarts for dessert. We have Christmas scotch eggs canapés, sage and onion stuffing balls canapés and even Christmas lunch bowl food. We have put our spin on classic holiday food which is guaranteed to excite your guests!

Jingle Bells - Emma Hamilton, Head of Sales

No Christmas is complete without a bit of festive entertainment, whether it’s a live band a DJ or something completely unique. Entertainment is a great talking point and helps make your event more memorable. We have seen everything at our events and have the contacts to put you in touch with the perfect entertainment to bring your event to life.

Christmas Cocktails - Warren Breiner, Senior Sales Manager (Six Storeys on Soho)

Get everyone in the festive spirit with Christmas themed cocktails. We are known for our unique infused spirits. My personal picks would be our Burnt Wine - infused with spices and cranberry or The Santa’s Little Helper cocktail with almond, nutmeg and rhubarb vanilla vodka. These cocktails are sure to have your guests merry in no time!

Take a picture it lasts longer! – Natalie Gale, Senior Sales Manager (City Collection)

Having an event photographer is a perfect way to help guests remember your event as they get to take the memories home with them. A friendly and welcoming photographer will know how to put people at ease and capture the highlights and candid moments. For a funkier twist, hire a photo booth or we can create you a unique geo filter for Snapchat.
