Whittlebury Hall launches Après Ball Christmas party packages

Date Posted:31/05/2018

Whittlebury Hall near Towcester has appointed Julia Charles Event Management to create a range of exclusive ‘Après Ball’ themed Christmas party packages that will transport guests to the snowy heights of a full blown, après, winter wonderland experience.

The four-star establishment was recently awarded bronze for Best Christmas Corporate Party Venue at the National Venue Awards 2018. Party-goers will be able to enjoy alpine-infused celebration nights, complete with après-inspired appetizers and aperitifs, followed by a delicious three-course meal full of seasonal themed dishes, exhilarating live themed entertainment and a fun-fueled DJ set.

Marc Webster, commercial director at Whittlebury Hall, said: “We appointed Julia Charles Event Management because they are creative, understand our brand and our audience and produce an amazing experience for our guests. It’s an extremely busy time of the year with more than 6,000 guests coming to Whittlebury Hall for their Christmas parties, so we need to work with an agency that we can trust to not only come up with an amazing concept, but who can also deliver a high-quality experience. We have worked with Julia Charles Event Management for eight years now and they always deliver.”

Michael Charles, director, Julia Charles Event Management said: “Whittlebury Hall, for us is such a fantastic venue to work with as they allow us to come to meetings with all cards on the table. Almost everything we present to them is taken on board and appreciated, and they allow us to be creative and consider the experience of the guests. We seem to share many of the same values when it comes to customer service and are always looking at ways things can be improved, if any. Much like the Christmas parties, they trust us to be innovative, creative and fresh with our concepts. Everything is bespoke and has a story behind it. From the entrance décor all the way to the stage and set designs, everything is designed to take guests on a journey of excitement and interaction.”

Shared Christmas party nights will be available at Whittlebury on selected dates throughout November and December with prices starting from £54 per person. Exclusive hire Christmas parties are also available.
