From Christmas Markets, Festive Lunches or just a good old pub pint, Birmingham has it all. We have taken all the hard work out for you and put together a guide for the perfect day out this December.

It's that time of year again when it is dark when you get up and dark when you are on your way home, but it can be used to your advantage. People are always looking to connect and have new experiences, we are social animals and need human contact. The winter can be tough and isolating for some and amazing for others. So if you have any friends, family or colleagues that you have not caught up with in a while why not get a date in the diary to have some fun this winter. If you are in Birmingham why not combine an activity (such as baseball, curling or crazy golf) along with a good old chin wag at The Floodgate.

In our post covid era it is easy to keep those slippers on after a day of working from home but that might not be the best thing for your wellbeing. We are social animals and it has been shown that the more human face to face contact we have the happier we are. As we move towards Christmas and the darker months a good old night out with colleagues, friends and family can be just what the doctor ordered. Office Christmas parties are a great way to boost morale. They provide a chance for employees to relax and have fun together outside of work, and they can also be used to show appreciation for employees' hard work and dedication. If you are in charge of organising the office christmas party then now is the time to secure your bookings as slots fill up quickly. If you are planning you night out in Birmingham then look no further that the best Christmas Party Bar in Birmingham.
