With close to 20 employees in the London office, our annual Christmas party was bigger and better than ever! Taking inspiration from the Christmas parties at Bronto’s headquarters in the United States, we began the night with humorous awards, a White Elephant gift exchange, and the British Christmas classics … Christmas crackers and mince pies!
We made our way to the Kensington Roof Gardens, a popular event venue in West London. The venue is comprised of three themed (and heated!) gardens, multiple bars and dining areas, and even a flowing stream complete with fish! We shared the dining area with a variety of other companies also hosting their Christmas parties, and enjoyed some delicious salmon, mushrooms, steak, cakes, pies and puddings. A cappella singers serenaded us as we ate and allowed us to request songs. Our official business celebration song is Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”… so clearly that was one of our choices.
After dinner, we moved into the bar area, which included additional entertainment in the form of a live drummer, DJs, and a giant snow globe that could fit several adults inside. It was a night of all-around merriment and cheer!
