The early bird catches the worm, start planning Christmas 2020 now!
Christmas event dates are usually confined to a two-week period, with Thursdays and Fridays being the key dates our clients look to book. There is nothing worse than leaving it to the last minute and not securing the venue, date or event suppliers. As a month filled with events, December is one of the busiest times of the year for caterers. The main priority for us is that our clients enjoy the Christmas party as much as their guests do.
You may be thinking Christmas 2019 is only just over, but people are already looking ahead to next Christmas. This is becoming an increasingly popular time to plan and book your next festive celebration, to avoid disappointment however crazy this might seem. Often the most popular venues and event spaces have already been booked come Spring, so January really is the perfect time to start planning.
The earlier you book the venue, the better – unsurprisingly, good venues go quickly. First steps are to source and secure said venue. We have compiled a list of some of our favourite locations for your guests to celebrate in style later this year.
