The Early Robin Catches the Best Christmas Boat Party

Ok, so our headline is a bit of a mouthful…! Anyhow, we were sitting and enjoying lunch today in the British summer sun and it suddenly struck us that in the events business, Christmas is around the corner! We have to be one step ahead of the game. While we are busy cruising the sunniest summer in years it is time to start to think about this year’s festive season.

Christmas Comes Earlier Every Year

Whether a grumble when the first M&S advert appears on telly or a flash of annoyance at the growth of fairy lights about town in November, it is true to say that the Christmas season pushes its way back every year. However, in response to these few naysayers we have already had Christmas enquiries coming in and we thought it was time to get prepared.

We love Christmas, it’s our favourite time of the year (well maybe summer as well, it’s too close to call!) and we want to use this opportunity to reflect on last year and get some great Christmas Packages to you early. For those looking into Staff Christmas Parties we have exceptional rates and this year we are offering spectacular deals to those, like us, planning Christmas early. Take the stress out of organising a Staff Party or Christmas Celebration last minute by looking at our new, competitive and simple Christmas Packages.

The Thames Leisure Festive Offering

For 2014, we have really tailored our cruises to you, our clients. We have put together this year’s new Christmas Party Cruises based on feedback, reflections from the events team on the ground and the popularity of last year’s events. With boat parties there is a lot of bespoke quoting so you can get exactly the event you want – so use these ideas as a guide.

This year we’ve done away with ‘boring’ numbered packages and decided to bring you cruises based on the strengths of our fleet. Our loyal customers will know our diverse fleet by now – we really do have the perfect boat for your event! Let’s have a sneaky moment to get excited about Christmas! OK so here goes…

Christmas Decorations and Novelties
Festive Finger Buffet
1 x Drinks Tokens (Beer or Wine) per person
This package is based on 65 guests
[+£2 per head for weekend events]

As the smallest member of our fleet, Tideway’s Christmas cruise is a real bargain for a Staff Party. Her interior resembles that of a London Pub (be it a pub that travels through the centre of the capital!) which is the perfect location for smaller groups of Christmas party goers wanting beautiful sites, dancing and a fully stocked bar to enjoy. We have included a Festive Finger Buffet to cater for those that get hungry and every guest will be entitled to a free drink before a cash bar comes into effect. A real steal – grab this offer early while you can!

Whisking your guests past London’s gloriously lit up sites like Big Ben, the O2 Arena and Tower Bridge is a magical Christmas experience. Treat your team to a Christmas Party with us that is out of the ordinary (and the office!), memorable and great fun for all!
