Booking your Christmas party early

Christmas is wrapped up for another year and it may seem too early to be planning your next Christmas party date, right? Wrong. We’re here to tell you the top four reasons why you should book early – the earlier, the better in fact.

Secure the date

One of the issues with leaving booking your Christmas party at the last minute is that there is limited availability for dates as the party night draws nearer. If you leave it too late, often guests are unable to attend or you’re unable to secure the prime date that you wanted.

At Emirates Old Trafford, our Christmas party nights are the best in Manchester, and it’s no wonder dates snap up at the earliest opportunity, so booking early avoids disappointment.

Increase attendance

Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year and social calendars get booked up quickly, so it makes sense to book the date well in advance to maximise attendance. Christmas is also one of the busiest times for deadlines, so if you plan in advance, your team are more likely to be able to schedule priorities around the date, decreasing stress levels and in turn boost morale.

The more notice you give your team, the more likely it is they will be able to make the date.



It’s just as important as securing your Christmas party, but the earlier you book your party night, the earlier you can book accommodation.

With our on-site Hilton Garden Inn hotel, there’s no need to worry about accommodation. Guests can enjoy an overnight stay in our four-star, 150-bedroom hotel, 80 of which are pitch-facing with balconies, overlooking the famous Lancashire Cricket pitch.
