Help disadvantaged young people find their voice

As high summer casts its long shadow over the spire at Arts Centre Melbourne, businesses everywhere are slowly returning to the office, getting back into the swing of daily life. 

It’s a new year, full of new possibilities and new exciting events dotted across your company’s calendar. The office Christmas decorations have been packed away. So, naturally, now is the perfect time to plan and book your 2019 Christmas party!

While the festive season may have only recently passed, now is the best time to lock in your 2019 Christmas party.

Last year’s festive period saw Arts Centre Melbourne host an enormous array of individual Christmas events across the entire iconic venue. From intimate lunches, to lavish large-scale celebrations, events of all sizes were hosted, with tailored menus and experiences to match the brief.

Each space within Arts Centre Melbourne has its own unique charm and characteristics. The Hugh Williamson Room, with its velvety blue decor, private balcony and views of tree-lined St Kilda Road, is ideal for more intimate events such as private long table lunches or evening cocktail parties. Visually striking, it is the perfect option for those looking to impress.

The Members’ Dining Room, flooded in natural light, is a particularly flexible option. Seated lunches or dinners are common in December. But more casual occasions, cocktail soirees are also available.

Or, for those looking to host a more grand-scale event, Arts Centre Melbourne’s premier space, The Pavilion, is a hot favourite. Come September, this arching, light-filled space with city views is often heavily booked for the following three months.

Across all spaces within Arts Centre Melbourne, event planners can take advantage of the premium culinary offerings. The menu at Arts Centre Melbourne is frequently changing – with chefs making the most of fresh, local seasonal produce. Each dish will celebrate the spirit of the festive season, and can be tailored to pair with chosen beverage packages. Dietary requirements are also carefully considered, with exciting options for those often relegated to the ‘mushroom special’.

By organising your Christmas party now, you can tick off one of the largest events of your year. Have first preference of space, date and time, and lock in your event before availability starts to spread thin.

Book your 2019 Christmas function before end of March 2019, and the Conferences, Meetings and Events team will lock in 2018 pricing for your Christmas event in November or December 2019.
