Gone are the awkward Christmas Parties where you're crammed inside an old stuffy office with a wilting piece of mistletoe hanging awkwardly between you and your colleagues. Instead, welcome to a new era of stylish Christmas Parties set inside some of the UK's coolest venues.
One of those places is top art gallery The Hepworth Wakefield (ArtFund Museum of the Year 2017) home to world-renowed art and inspired by Barbara Hepworth.
The Hepworth Wakefield is a great and versatile venue for events, weddings conferences and of course Christmas Parties!
Forget plastic cups and dry sandwiches and get ready for a drinks reception amongst some of the most instagrammable sculptures in the world.
Groups of all sizes can enjoy a shared or private Christmas Party like no other...
Enjoy Cocktails on arrival whilst you chat and mingle amongst the art work which is set inside the purpose-built building, designed by the acclaimed David Chipperfield Architects. The Hepworth Wakefield is in the heart of Yorkshire and the venue overlooks the River Calder. It is easily accessed by public transport or from the motorway.
Next, guests are treated to a festive four-course-feast, created by the in-house team of top chefs, using the best local seasonal produce. From a take on the traditional Turkey roast to roast vegetable and cranberry crumble, followed by Christmas Pudding Lollipops coated in white chocolate and brandy sauce. There's an array of Christmas-inspired dishes to choose from.
Once people have indulged in a delightful dinner, the party starts with a guest DJ and chill-out lounge, complete with a dance floor to dance the night away...
More about The Hepworth Wakefield and The Hepworth Cafe
The Hepworth Wakefield is named after the Wakefield-born and bred Barbara Hepworth. It contains work from Ben Nicholson, Patrick Heron, L.S. Lowry, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore as well as work by significant contemporary artists such as Frank Auerbach, Maggi Hambling, Anthea Hamilton, Martin Parr and Eva Rothschild.
The Hepworth Wakefield is in the process of creating The Hepworth Wakefield Riverside Gallery Garden which will be one of the UK’s largest free public gardens and will transform the surroundings to the gallery.
The Hepworth Cafe, set inside the venue also offers up food art thanks to Excecutive Chef Chris Hale and team.
MasterChef finalist Chris Hale, from Wakefield, took over the reigns of the gallery’s catering offer a year ago and has since received glowing reviews in The Observer, Waitrose Food Monthly, The Yorkshire Post and Boughton’s Coffee House magazine. The NorthStar Roast coffee (complete with latte art thanks to their in-house baristas) is not to be missed as well as the wide range of loose leaf teas.
Chris and his team of chefs work hard creating bespoke menus for any event held at The Hepworth Wakefield as well as transforming The Hepworth Cafe menu each season (it changes with each new exhibition).
