Celebrate the season with a party out on the town with colleagues.
The winter season signals the time to organise some much-needed festive fun to unwind with colleagues after a hard-working year. From high octane thrills to chilled out team bonding sessions, our choice of venues to take the party outside the office provides something unique for everyone, with some take-home gift ideas thrown in for good measure.
Cards Or Die
Whether for an evening of careful strategising or for a relaxed games tournament to play at your own pace, Horsforth’s friendly boardgame hub is a welcoming party option to promote healthy competition and spark some nostalgia. Hundreds of games from retro classics to quirky new releases can be chosen to suit each group, with knowledge- able staff on hand to demonstrate the rules before letting the team play on. If meeting up with colleagues elsewhere, the Card Or Die team can also bring the games over to you to enjoy the activity at your chosen party venue.
New to the city centre’s vibrant social scene, Flight Club’s supercharged version of the traditional game of darts creates a great social experience for larger groups of up to 300. Plenty of private and semi- private event spaces are available for teams to take over one of the darts playing areas to compete in head-to-head tournaments at the throw line or simply sit back and enjoy the lively atmosphere, with seasonally inspired sharing plates, pizza paddles, and cocktails all up for grabs.
Adding a time pressured element to the party to boost team creativity and problem- solving skills through an escape room experience is a great choice for staff who fancy a challenge during their night out. Escape Hunt beckons large groups to immerse themselves in a set of live action themed rooms, each featuring its own unique set design and plotline. With just under 60 minutes to navigate through the room’s intricate puzzles and riddles together, the session guarantees some fast-paced fun.
Teamsport Go Karting
There’s 580 metres of nail-biting bends for staff to test their nerves with during this stress busting party option for adrenaline junkies. Colleagues can buckle up and take to the track in speeds of 40mph to beat each other for pole position or set up their own tournament to beat their personal fastest lap time. For those needing to slow down, the track also has plenty of chilled out areas to kick back and catch up with the team over a drink before returning behind the wheel.
Ready, Steady, Bake It
Shared cooking and baking lessons provide a unique way to pair up and collaborate with colleagues in an informal setting which is inclusive for everyone. Giving groups of 10 to 30 people all the instructions, ingredients, and equipment needed for the ultimate bake off, the friendly team at Ready, Steady, Bake It design experiences tailored for each party, helping build relationships that won’t crumble.
