So here we go it is that time of year when you are looking for your Christmas party options, here are some Christmas party ideas for you with a difference!! Let 'The Club' organise your bespoke event.


As an offset to my mother's well renowned catering company Really Good Food I have created "The Club" where I draw on luxury providers in food, wine, fashion and sporting to create events for whatever need...whether it be private parties, corporate entertainment, team bonding , profile raise and awareness ... I tap into your needs, wants and budget and see how I can meet these, creating events and parties which create a buzz and a whirr! The demand for my service has snowballed incredibly quickly and I would like to make you aware of what I can offer.


Based on 20 people cost is £50 per head and includes wine, food, staff, hire and call my bluff quiz entertainment or a fashion show (other entertainment options are available and listed separately some free of charge and some at an added cost... Fashion show, wine and cheese tasting, giant Scaletrix racing, casino, quizzes of varying style, red letter days, night at the races, country sports, cocktail making....The list goes on! 


Obviously these are not the only options available to you and it would be more productive for me to come and sit with you all in person to discuss options. I can manoeuvre on cost changing food options however with this package below you really are getting an awful lot for your money .... Definitely more than your run of the mill restaurant/pub trip and its your own private party!!

Any how as I said once perused let's organise a time and I shall come discuss in person! This is the option I would recommend after doing my broad research on the sorts of things things you all enjoy and would like from a quality evening! A Private hosted and catered intimate dinner party at a Cotswold Country secret hideaway  Venue decorated to your desire  i.e.if you have a theme/dress code or simply classic dinner party!!  Other venues are available...Jack's in Cirencester, Tythe Barn (with optional accom) near Cirencester, The Wine Barn and Gallery near Tetbury, Cheltenham venue to be located. I do strongly feel though that for the Christmas  party the Great Tythe Barn is best suited for your evening. If clients need to be invited and you need to keep costs to a minimum  I can join you with one of the 64 charities from my books and you can charge invitees for a 'golden ticket' ...this would enable local press to come along which i would organise at your discretion and write up/photograph the evening putting the company in a fond light increasing profile and awareness. Equally I can arrange this if you wish to base your party as a charity event even without the ticketed option and I will make a donation to the chosen charity from your final bill.    


Below is an example of a party I can put together for you!


"A night of sheer luxury and indulgence at secret hideaway Cotswold location...The Great Tythe Barn, near Cirencester" N.B. For those that want to carry on drinking until dawn there is a late night bar at the premises! There will be other little surprises and touches Included in the evening which are not listed in order to make your evening different, fun and innovative!! I look forward to hearing from you and would relish the opportunity to come and discuss this all in person. Clementine Rainy-Brown, "The Club" and Really Good Food , 07880545657
