Christmas Cocktails

Virtual cocktail masterclasses are run through a virtual meeting platform and are entertaining, informative and lots of fun.

Participants will be guided through making the cocktails by one of our charming and engaging mixologist presenters.  We have a range of deliciously simple Christmas cocktail recipes that everyone can follow.  Christmas themed gift boxes are sent to each guest including all ingredients, cocktail equipment (excluding glassware) for the chosen cocktails.

Hosted; Up to 1 hour, 10+ people

Casino Night

Entertain your guests with casino games such as Blackjack, Three Card Poker and Texas Hold ‘Em Poker.

If playing with 5-14 participants, everyone will remain in the same “room” for the game. If playing with more than this, we would allocate multiple breakout rooms within the Zoom call so everybody can get fully involved!

A professional croupier will give an initial briefing before everyone takes their place at the table. Each digital game table can be personalised with player name tags and your company logo. The aim of the game is to accumulate as many chips as you can during the allocated time in order to be crowned the winner – we hope you’re feeling competitive!

Hosted: 1-2 hours, 10+ people

Cheese and Wine Tasting

For this experience, participants will be sent tasting packs in advance…including 6 x 100g portions of cheese and two ½ bottles of wine (one red & one white). Each pack can be shared between 2 people, so this is a perfect activity if participants want a plus-1 to join. All your guests will need is a couple of wine glasses and internet connection.

Once everyone has joined the video call, your guests can sit back and sip, whilst being entertained and educated by an expert sommelier. There is also the option to add interactive elements into this tasting experience such as games and quizzes for an additional cost.

Hosted: up to 1 hour, 10+ people

Festive Rock Off

World Class musicians will put on an amazing show for your virtual event.

Delivered by a team of 4 including MC, producer and musicians they will work with the group to write an original Christmas song. This fast-paced, music-fuelled session will get everyone energized and engaged. Alongside the song-writing, there will be a Rock and Roll Game Show which can include interactive performance challenges for anyone feeling brave enough to step into the spotlight!

This can be combined with festive costumes and cocktail making for a truly special occasion!

Hosted; 60-120 mins, 10+ people

Christmas Blockbusters

Our Christmas BlockBuster challenges your team to translate company business messages, core values or brand in to a dynamic, exciting and attention- grabbing Christmas movie trailer.

After a briefing, teams of 3-5 people brainstorm their storyline and work together to decide on a production style, develop a storyboard for 6-10 scenes and choose that all important soundtrack – Christmas classics are very welcome choices!

Participants capture their individual scenes on mobile devices and upload them to our production crew. Editors will then work with teams in real time to produce the eagerly awaited Christmas movie trailers.

Hosted; 90-180 mins, 8+ people

If you don’t really want specific activities then there are all sorts of ideas for entertainment to get the Christmas party started:

DJ/Host – they can MC as well as provide the musical backdrop requests submitted pre and during event

VJ (Video DJ) – add visuals to the music experience e.g. mix in company images/VT to look back at the year or see what people have been up.

Virtual Cabaret – e.g. musicians, magicians, comedians, spontaneous poet!

Host games and offer prizes – an incentive to keep listening (e.g. when certain song played or link the 3 songs in a row)

Games – greatest gameshows, musical bingo, parlour games (all together, pick out individuals, or as smaller groups in breakout rooms)

Talent Show – your own people provide the entertainment…with audience voting!

Live Music – perhaps a sing-a-long or even a Christmas Karaoke

Dance Leader – get everyone involved in some movement and/or dancing

Virtual Photobooth – on mobile or via a webpage
