It’s official, Christmas is here. We feel like it has been lingering for some time. Since September, there’s been a shadow of a tall, bejewelled tree in the corner, a glint of fairy lights from the corner of our eye and a faint smell of sweet cinnamon spices in the air. Since September, we have been planning and preening our festive calendar, debating whether we should dress the rooms in gold or silver tinsel and making sure our kitchen is prepared to cook for the hungry, and probably slightly tipsy, masses. And, although we don’t mean to get emotional here, we are doing this all for you.
Our guests are what matters the most to us, any time but especially, during the festive season. We know it can be tough- it’s a time for family after all! Excitable children bouncing around, breaking all their new toys while grandparents complain about how it wasn’t so commercial during their day. The turkey is still defrosting, the cat has had a fight with the wrapping paper and now shreds litter the living room like confetti. Everybody has had too much bucks fizz and baileys by 11am. Tired already? We aren’t!
We aim to do all the hard work so you don’t have to. With a varied and exciting event calendar running throughout December and January, you’re sure to find something that suits your tastes this Christmas. And if your struggling, just browse through our top 5 suggestions below!
