Christmas Party Entertainment ideas

As Robbie said, “Let Me Entertain You”. Well, let us entertain you with some great Christmas party entertainment ideas. So many of the hundreds of Thames Cruises we run every year have extra entertainment on board – and many of course at Christmas time – that we thought it was worth a quick recap in case you are wondering how to keep your guests happy and interested at your Christmas office party, beyond simply plying them with oodles of sherry and mince pies*. Without further ado, here are seven (my lucky number) of our most popular entertainment options.

CHristmas party entertainment choice #1: DJs!

The good old swing your pants option! It should be no surprise that the dance floor is one of the most popular places to be come Christmas party season. Our resident DJ is an old hand at filling the floor and will earn his crust this festive season. This is a safe and classic option and you might just get lucky enough to have a good laugh with even your most staid colleagues once their fave ‘Choon’** comes on.

Casino Tables, Blackjack, Roulette

You may not be James Bond or Miss Moneypenny but the best of us can try our hand at a flutter and a raised eyebrow come Christmas time. Our experienced croupiers and casino-meisters have been with us for years and know how to put a fun spin on your Christmas party. Throw the dice and book a casino option for your Christmas office party – it’s a dead cert.

*More food than you could ever possibly eat

It’s not only the goose that gets fat at Christmas time. If you can’t over-indulge in calories at a Christmas party when can you? Our Christmas menus satisfy both traditionalists and those with more modern tastes. If formal seated Christmas lunches with all the trimmings are not your thing, our tasty Festive finger buffets are always popular too. Ho-ho-ho, yum-yum-yum!

**The phenomenon that is Stick It On

This genius party format from the expert party-starters at our good friends Stick It On allows party guests to become superstar DJs for their 15 minutes of fame, lording it over your dance floor and getting festive feet dancing spinning their favourite 3 ‘choons’. Everything facilitated and guaranteed to go as smoothly as an after-dinner Bailey’s Irish Cream, this will make your party this Christmas season one to remember.

Murder Mystery

The River Thames is well known as the ideal place for dastardly dinner party murders – dine at your peril! It must be the murky waters of the Thames giving that little bit of distance from the long arm of the law that makes the candle lit saloon of a Thames river cruiser the ideal murder scene. Our criminal masterminds and super-sleuths will give you a deadly dinner to remember.

Live band

Live music still has that magic touch at Christmas Parties. We work with lots of great performers from banging cover-bands to chilled acoustic duos. Talk to us about finding the right performers to suit your needs and add something memorable and special to your Christmas party.

Cocktail Flair Bar

Tom Cruise eat your heart out. Our multi-talented master Mixologists (try saying that after four Shirley Temples) not only ensure you have the most delicious drinks throughout your party, they also add a shot of fun, a twizzle of excitement and er (I’m struggling here) a sprig of glamour! Seriously, they are brilliant at Christmas time and guarantee a memorable party.

There, we go ‘the magnificent seven’ of Christmas party entertainment sure-fire hits according to the many hundreds of successful Christmas Boat Party cruises we have run over the years.

Let me be the first to wish you a Happy Christmas and hope we can help make your office or staff Christmas party this year and roaring success. Boat parties are the way to go – give us a try, we’re old hands. 🙂
