5 Xmas Parties That Don't Require a Venue
Lauren Lister | 14/11/2019
Who doesn’t love an end of year Xmas party. Take the afternoon off, do something fun and finish the night with a few cheeky champers or craft beers before demolishing a kebab on the way home.
But Xmas parties can be tough for small teams or businesses with a limited budget.
The hire fee or minimum spend required to book a cool venue within the CBD is often on par with the purchase price of a small private island.
But there are easy ways to create a kickass Xmas party experience without the need of a fancy bar or restaurant venue.
Here are our top 5:
One-Take Music Video
Utilise your office or workspace to create a music video in one, continuous take. Sound easy? Well, it’s a challenge and one that you can definitely do with a drink in hand. The best part is you get to watch your videos back when you finish!
VR & Craft Beer
This match made in heaven combines a series of team-based VR games and challenges with a craft beer tasting adventure from some of Sydney’s rising new breweries. Our team will bring everything to your office for 1-2 hours of nerdy shenanigans.
Imagine an Amazing Race style activity where you collected and donated essential care items for families in crisis. Well, that’s exactly what Giveback Backpack is. Starting from a central location in the Sydney CBD, teams of 4-5 people complete challenges and collect items to help people with basic goods such as toiletries, baby and kids clothing, books and toys.
Kick off your shoes and feel the earth under your feet with an Aboriginal Art experience in the park where guests learn from renowned Indigenous artists and create their own artwork that tells their story.
Race Your Mates
Choose from Amazing Race or City Quest and take on your colleagues in a battle of wits to locate checkpoints, complete challenges and race to the finish line. Better still, finish at a pub and enjoy a drink while the results are tallied.
