A staff party night…in January? Here are the 5 reasons why…

Posted: 20th September 2018

Start how you mean to go on:

Team get-togethers are a great way to set the bar for the year to come. Reward them with a night to remember or, if you’re looking for an excuse for a day out the office, you can add on a meeting room or an activity at Action Glen.

It’s easier to schedule:

Christmas is a busy old time for everyone, but for some, getting a December date to suit the whole team just doesn’t happen (we can sympathise, working in hospitality) that, or nobody managed to get around to the organising – not every ‘Friends’ group has a Monica!

Not all your Christmases have to come at once:

Leave yourself something to look forward to and whilst everyone else is back at it and suffering from the January blues, you’ll be living it up on the dancefloor. It factors in a few days for post Hogmanay recovery too…don’t say we’re not good to you!

Bag yourself a bargain:

Our January dates are set at £75pp including an overnight stay. Plus, you can pick up your outfit in the January sale and make use of our winter activity offers at Action Glen and The Spa – result!

No terrible Christmas cracker jokes:

No need to perfect your fake laugh for the benefit of your boss. Plus, it’s bad luck to keep the tree up after the 12th day of Christmas, so there won’t be any of those either. BAHHH HUMBUG!

Our January nights are running on 13th and 14th and cost £75pp, however if these dates don’t work for you or you would like your own private bash let us know.
