Why you should book your Christmas party early

It might only be summer, but now is the perfect time to start planning your Christmas party, and here at Emirates Old Trafford, we believe the earlier, the better.

Whether you’re looking for a night out with friends, or celebrating the end of the year with colleagues, Emirates Old Trafford has a Christmas party night for you.

This month, we round up our three top tips to consider when organising the annual Christmas party.

1. Secure the date

Plan ahead and book your venue in advance – the best places snap up fast. The earlier you set the date, the more time you give your guests chance to plan their outfit and of course, pop the date in the diary.

You already know our Christmas party nights are selling fast, so what are you waiting for? Treat your colleagues or guests to a night they will remember and secure your preferred date as soon as possible. Hurry, they won’t stick around for long!

2. Fun atmosphere

It’s important to choose a venue with a great atmosphere that will really get your guests into the festive spirit.

At Emirates Old Trafford, we believe the party should start right from the word go. That’s why, our two shared Christmas parties combine great entertainment, delicious food and an all-around celebratory atmosphere, to ensure your guests can party into the early morning.

3. Location, location, location

We don’t mean to sound like Phil and Kirstie, but picking a central location is vital when choosing a Christmas party venue, so your guests can travel quickly and easily to the party.

At Emirates Old Trafford, we’re just three miles from the city centre. And, with a four-star Hilton Garden Inn, over 600 free on-site parking spaces, and a Metrolink stop behind the stadium, we’re perfectly located for your next event.

Need somewhere to rest your head?

Our award-winning Hilton Garden Inn boasts 150-bedrooms, 80 of which are pitch-facing with balconies, and provide the perfect backdrop for your pre-party selfies.

Enjoy cocktails made by our expert bar staff in the hotel bar, or enjoy a bottle of bubbly in the comfort of your room, before making your way to the best party night of the year.

Forget about the hassle of booking taxis or catching the last train home and party the night away. Book your stay today by speaking to our Reservations Manager, Alexis Yaghil, on 0161 868 6891 or email
