We’re quickly heading towards the end of another year and, at summ.it, that means another excuse for a party. You know we love any excuse to get dressed up and spend time together, but Christmas is the ultimate excuse! Having been booked since February(!) by the time the 2nd December came around, we were well ready to get into the festive spirit.
What Christmas Party prep is complete without a trip to the Manchester Christmas Markets beforehand? After a few mulled wines, everyone headed back to their hotel to get glammed up ready for the evening.
This year’s Christmas party was held at Great John Street Hotel in Manchester; a vintage, boutique hotel in Manchester’s Castlefield area. With a Prosecco on arrival and a live Motown band, all the guests were in the party spirit as soon as they walked through the door. It didn’t take long for Lucy and Richard to show what they’re made of on the dance floor.
After a few more Proseccos, it was time for dinner and a chance to sit down, rest our feet, and talk about how much we’ve all enjoyed the last 12 months at summ.it.
Everyone made a great effort with their outfits for the night but the prize for “Best Dressed” must go to Laura Brogden for her stunning, full-length, sequin mermaid dress. Just something she had lying around her wardrobe, apparently!
It’s safe to say the night was a total hit, even the Jagerbombs with dessert didn’t send things too downhill.
2016 really has been a great year for us; our team has grown, we’ve seen 3 members celebrate 10 years at summ.it, we took on the Mighty Deerstalker Challenge, and applied to be on a TV show. So, with 2016 almost over, we’re looking forward to a relaxing Christmas break ready to welcome in 2017 for even more growth, success, and team get-togethers!
