The Exposed Guide to Christmas Partaaaays

Function room. Sleigh Bar. A stern word from the boss in the morning. We’ve all done the same old same old. If there’s one thing we’ve learnt on the forced work-related-fun front, is that you have to think outside the box sometimes. Book the meeting room, grab your boss and show them these ideas for your work’s Christmas party. Oh, and merry bloody Christmas.
