Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas in London without the annual trip to Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland. This year they have even more fantastic attractions to fuel the festive fun! There are plenty of pre-bookable events including ice sculpting workshops, Cirque Berserk (an all new thrill show) and the famous backyard cinema will be showing The Snowman Experience. It is now open right up until 6th January so you can also make this the first team event of 2019!
So, if you haven’t yet been, check out their website below to plan your day.
Somerset House have teamed up with Fortnum and Mason to host and be backdrop to London’s most beautiful ice rink, where you can skate day or night with your team. For the party animals, their club nights, ‘Skate Lates’, mean you can skate whilst listening to live DJ sets. Or if ice skating isn’t for you, you can stay inside the Apres-skate lounge, take in the spectacle rink-side and treat yourself to a baileys. Prices for ice skating start from £11.00
If you and your team would prefer a ‘quieter’ Christmas do, Dalloway terrace is an elegant winter garden restaurant located in the heart of Soho-ho-ho. With a cosy and festive feel, this makes for a perfect intimate team dinner.

Fulham’s first thameside beach has had a retro ski chalet makeover. Expect a large heated winter lodge, hunting lodges, fondue and schnitzel, mountain scenes, bauble filled igloos, karaoke, curling, DJ’s and much more.
Southbank Centre has transformed into a glowing festive wonderland with its annual winter festival lining the south bank of the Thames. Enjoy a packed programme of free and ticketed events, including a Christmas market, festive shows and entertainment. You can also shop for Christmas gifts and quirky crafts at the twinkling wooden cabins of the Winter Market, or tuck into some winter warmers such as mulled wine and German sausages. Eat, drink and be merry!
1.) Why not give secret Santa a bit of a twist this year and play ‘Dirty Santa’. It’s a real laugh. We played this last year here at DeVono and it’s safe to say it was a hit! See below for the rules.
2.) Most festive workspace contest – Get your teams to decorate their office space. Then you can announce the winners of the most impressive festive space at the Christmas Party!
3.) Snowball Toss – In your teams, see how many marshmallows you can get in the bowl resting on top of your boss’s head! But, be nice.
Ioana (Database Manager) – “Be more intentional with my time”
Sophie Moulds (Executive Assistant) – “Eat less chocolate” , she says while eating a bagel covered in Nutella!
Sophie Bluemel (Office Administrator) – “To get back into a fitness and healthy eating routine”
Ruth Lynch – (Head of people and premises) – “To start focussing more on my own well being with lots of yoga, massages and drinking less, and to start being more creative with my artistic talents on weekends!”
On behalf of everyone at DeVono, We hope you have a lovely Christmas!
"We have used DeVono as our property advisers for a number of years. Their greatest strengths lie in their ability to understand quickly what is required and to grasp all the relevant issues. They regularly ‘think outside the box’ and offer creative solutions to complex problems. We have no hesitation in recommending them."
"It was a pleasure working with DeVono - the team were very professional, knowledgeable and provided the right advice when needed. The most important aspect was that you took time to understand what we were after rather than position everything on the market. I would not hesitate recommending you and your firm."
"Having appointed DeVono to find our next high profile London office, we have not been disappointed with their high level of service and meticulous attention to detail from the very first day, through to signing the Agreement for Lease and beyond. They assured us during the tender process that they would be right by our side all the way through and not just appointed to “do the deal” and this is exactly what we received."
"I must also comment that the service received from DeVono has been exemplary. In what I have experienced to be the unpleasant world of estate agency it has been a real joy to work with you. You have been driven, proactive, reliable and extremely quick and responsive. The fact that you are pleasant to work with has been a bonus. Working with DeVono has been one of the very best customer experiences of my business career."
"DeVono did an excellent job for On Demand from beginning to end. You showed patience as our requirements changed and understood what we looking for at each stage of the process. I would be very happy to recommend your services to other clients and would single out the first class service provided by your relocation team for particular praise."
