Location is everything

The phrase ‘location, location, location’ is well-known for a reason! The right location can make or break the turn out of an event, and you want it to be easy for all guests to get to. Thankfully Leicester isn’t short of its central Christmas party venues. Look for a location that is conveniently located for your guests and offers amenities like parking, accessibility, and onsite or nearby accommodation for those coming from out-of-town. 

Why Mattioli Woods Welford Road? Conveniently situated just a 20-minute drive from Junction 21 of the M1 and a short 15-minute walk from London Road Railway Station, Mattioli Woods Welford Road offers easy access for guests. With ample on-site parking and accommodation courtesy of the 190-bedroom Hotel Brooklyn, our venue is perfectly placed for guests' comfort and convenience.

Christmas is all about the food

No Christmas party is complete without feast-like food and novelty drinks. Make sure your chosen venue or catering company has a set festive menu that reflects the spirit of the season - from classic holiday favourites like roast turkey and glazed ham to gourmet appetisers and decadent desserts. Guests also love a signature cocktail, mulled wine, and, of course, non-alcoholic festive alternatives for designated drivers.
