Christmas party – the lowdown!

After a successful year, it was that time again to celebrate in style with the annual Christmas party at Eventcity, Manchester.

End of year Christmas party at Eventcity, Manchester for our Marketing Goodguys

After a busy morning as usual, everyone got their gladrags on ready to enjoy a fun night alongside our friends and office neighbours Cloud 4. Secret Santa gifts were exchanged, with a considerable number ironically not safe for work. Even Chesney Hawkes got involved!

The start of the show

This year’s party theme was a Masquerade Ball. After some tasty canapes including pulled pork sliders and prawns with chilli sauce, we all had a bit of fun with the props and the photographer. Danny was fully dressed up for the occasion in his masquerade outfit whilst Jonathan was a detective – well, we think he was.

During the show

The evening’s entertainment started with opening acts to get us warmed up, and continued whilst we enjoyed our dinner with some fantastic acrobatics and music which captivated the audience.

After the show

After the show, there was still plenty to enjoy including plenty of action on the dodgem cars which got a little bit competitive between Jonathan and James. VG was also able to demonstrate to Paul why driving in high heels isn’t such a great idea.

A charity casino on site was enjoyable, and the stage was opened up as a dance floor. With the drinks flowing and the DJ playing the tunes until 1AM, everyone got up to bust some moves and party into the early hours.

Overall both the CRE8 team and Cloud4 had another enjoyable night at Eventcity, despite the hangover the next day, and we’re already looking forward to next year! For now though it’s back into the office ready for the busy week leading up to Christmas.
