Location makes ‘A Very Emirates Old Trafford Christmas’

When arranging a Christmas party with colleagues and friends, the venue’s location might not always be at the top of your priority list. But here’s five reasons why it should be…

Remember public Transport

More than likely, your guests will be utilising public transport, so you want to ensure that your venue is within walking distance of bus or train services.

Emirates Old Trafford is located directly next to a Metrolink stop, with direct services to Piccadilly train station – meaning that your guests can easily access the venue from anywhere in the country.

Choose a central location

For many modern companies, offices and colleagues are spread right across the country, resulting in an uneven distribution of travel for party-goers.

To avoid any grumblings from disgruntled commuters, why not book your party in a central location? If your guests can enjoy an easy arrival, they’re much more likely to let loose in the evening ahead!

With its endless train network and motorways, Manchester has become the beating heart of the nation!

Get value for money

Looking to bring the whole company together for this year’s Christmas party? You’ll need a big venue – and that can be expensive, right!?

Event bookers who look outside the capital city are much more likely to find their dream space, within their price range. A recent study shows that the cost of entertainment in Manchester is 31% cheaper than in London.

Consider proximity to quality hotels

No matter where in the country you’re looking to hold your Christmas party, there’s always going to be a need for a place your guests can rest their heads.

By choosing a venue with a hotel directly on site, you’re reducing the risk of guests finding their way home or spending a fortune on taxis – which they’ll thank you for later!

At Emirates Old Trafford, guests have no need to even step outside, as a bridge link offers direct access to a 150-bedroom, four-star, Hilton Garden Inn hotel!

Make it memorable!

Are your guests sick of the same Christmas party venue? Maybe you’ve used the ‘chic bar’ vibe too many times, and it’s time to shake things up a bit!

There’s a whole host of unique and extraordinary space on offer for events these days – giving you the chance to stay one step ahead of the curve and give guests a real ‘wow’ factor.

Sporting venues are more popular than ever in 2018, offering large and bright spaces for you to make a real, memorable impact.
