How to organise a Christmas party in Manchester – tips & tricks:
The earlier, the better – best Christmas party venues in Manchester book out months in advance. The sooner you decide to start looking, the more choices you have. It’s better to have a few potential event dates in mind – this increases your chances of finding what you want. Remember to send out the invitations a few weeks in advance, too.
Good things come in small (or bigger) packages – as mentioned above, many of Manchester Christmas party venues have special offers for the holiday celebrations. Such packages usually consist of special (often bespoke) Christmas food and drink menus. Sometimes decor, entertainment and event manager services are included as well. And the best part? By choosing Christmas party packages you can save a lot – we know how to find the best deals in Manchester.
Music can make it or break it – a fun Xmas playlist is essential for a successful Christmas party. For laid-back staff Christmas parties play upbeat holiday pop songs, while for upscale dining pick a soft Christmas jazz backdrop. Remember to make your set long enough, too – don’t bore your guests with listening to the same short mixtape over and over again. If you don’t feel like creating your own playlist, you might want to hire a DJ specialised in Christmas parties – they know how to please the crowd.

I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
