Ralli Solicitors Christmas Party

Ralli Santa

We were engaged by Ralli Solicitors to create and manage their 2013 staff Christmas Party. We were asked to find a suitable venue in Manchester City centre on a Friday in December in which the firm could have exclusive use of a room. Our client wanted to treat their staff to a drinks reception, 3 course meal and dancing. It was really important to our client that a good DJ be booked for the after dinner party and that everything ran smoothly.

We managed to negotiate exclusive access to an area in a perfect restaurant venue which had added festive charm as it overlooked the Christmas markets! The guests gained access to their party venue via a specially created private entrance and were greeted with a lovey chilled glass of bubbly and studied the Christmas tree themed table plan to find their seats. Festive music mixed with some modern classics was being played by the carefully selected and well renowned DJ who we had arranged to travel up from Stafford especially for the event.

Dinner was then called and the guests were welcomed into their private dining area and enjoyed a 3 course dinner. The guests had a choice within the courses and we had already collated menu choices and sent these to the venue in advance. There was even pre ordered white wine on the table chilling in buckets or red wine already opened to breathe.

Once the meal had ended- or in some cases a little before- the dance floor area that had been specially created started to fill up as the DJ started to turn up the volume and engage with the guests. Many requests came flooding in. We had already collected a number of song requests from the guests before the event and it was great to see the guests’ reactions when their chosen tune came on. We had liaised with the venue to create a private outside space if guests wanted some fresh air. This was heated and guests enjoyed sipping a drink near to the famous Manchester town hall Santa before heading back to the dance floor. We stayed until the party was in full swing….and it really was.

We received such positive feedback after the event from individual guests who took the time to email us personally. We also received the following lovely testimonial from our client:

“Right from the start, we knew we could trust Kate Mackenzie Events to give our festive celebrations that extra touch of sparkle. From choosing, visiting and liaising with the venue – of which there were three proposed – we were kept up to speed with all of the arrangements and even shared the night with Kate throughout the event. She was always on hand for questions and took the stress and strain completely off our shoulders. All we had to decide was where to go, how to get there, what to eat and what to wear! Kate Mackenzie Events have since helped with many of our other events.”
