With Christmas fast approaching many of us are starting to think about our work Christmas party. If you work for a large organisation you may well be lucky enough to have your party all organised and paid for without you having to think about it. But if there is no sign of an organised party on the horizon, you and your colleagues might want to look into organising your own night out.
So long as everyone is happy to chip in towards the cost, there are a number of options available at this time of year, most suitable for all ages.
The vast majority of pubs and restaurants will be holding dedicated party nights throughout November and December, usually offering three courses for a set cost of around £25 (depending where you are in the country). These events are open to everyone and will give you a good opportunity to socialise with other work parties, but you'll need to book quick - because of the good value of these events, they will fill up quickly.
If you prefer a more casual night out, your local bowling alley could be a great destination (so long as a little friendly office rivalry can be taken in good spirit!).
If you're fun bunch perhaps you would enjoy an evening at a comedy club for a relaxing night out and a great way to unwind from the mayhem of work.
For those who enjoy fancy dress, medieval banquets abound during this time of year. What better way to celebrate in the winter months than with a hearty feast and flowing ale!
