It may still feel like summer in the UK with a September heatwave no one expected, but Christmas is less than 100 days away, and while thoughts of Christmas puddings, turkey, trees and tinsel might be the last thing on your mind, the next three months will undoubtedly whizz by.
In the midst of a pandemic, the thought of organising a Christmas party can be daunting. Businesses will be worried about how they can give their teams a well-deserved treat and a dazzling event to blow off steam after working through one of the most challenging periods in history.
But now more than ever, team spirit and festive cheer is needed – and that’s where a teambuilding events specialist like Team Tactics can help.
From festive rickshaw rallies or a Yuletide ride down the Thames, to Christmas cocktail parties and carol chaos – there’s a whole range of events to pick from, without any of the party-planning stress.
Here, we reveal our five creative party ideas to treat your team this festive season.
