Why You Should Book Your Christmas Parties With Us

If there’s one thing about Manor By The Lake, we don’t hold back when it comes to parties! Whether you’re getting married to the love of your life or having a boogie with your co-workers, a good time is always guaranteed. But without a doubt, the Christmas parties we throw here are one in a million!

Have an exclusive party with 10 of your close friends, host your work do (shared parties are the best), or go big and host an exclusive event for 200 – the world (or venue) is your oyster.

Think of it as an early Christmas present for yourself and the people around you! But why should you have a Christmas party, and how much will it cost?

Does The Christmas Party Have A Theme?

Manor By The Lake

Is it really a Christmas party if there isn’t a fabulous theme? And the theme this year at the Manor is The Magic Of Christmas. Look forward to a night of magic and fun!

In our opinion, there’s no better time than Christmas to get all dressed up, put your dancing shoes on, and party the night away with your favourite people. Think twinkling lights, sparkling snowflakes, and plenty of festive cheer.

Any excuse to wear that statement piece from your wardrobe, whether it is a novelty Christmas jumper or sequin party dress!

Can We Come Up With Our Own Christmas Party Theme?

Of course, if Magic of Christmas isn’t your thing, our planning team at the Manor are here to help. And that goes for any festive party theme we put together. Our main priority is ensuring you and your guests have the time of your lives. And in that case, we may be able to change things up!

Let us know in advance and we’ll do our very best to accommodate you and your guests! Après Ski party anyone?
