We're aware that it's only June, and you may think we've gone a little bit mad but yes, it's true, we're talking about Christmas parties.
It's never too early to book a Christmas party, especially if you need a big venue or a specific date. So, with around 200 days left until Santa gets to work, so, too, begins the race to plan the best possible festive shindig.
With that in mind, we've come up with seven of our favourite venues for the festive season, so you can leave your party planning hat at home, and get on with enjoying yourself.
1. Battersea Evolution
Battersea Evolution is known for its knock-out immersive sharing Christmas parties and this year's theme is no exception.
Travel around the world in 80 days from ancient Egypt, via the souks of Marrakech and ornate temples of Japan, to the snowy hills of Kathmandu. The 2000 (seated) capacity space will be transformed with hanging lamps, giant pharaohs, and even colourful floating hot air balloons floating above your head as you dine.
The sharing concept means you can experience fantastic food and production even with smaller numbers...and you might even make some friends along the way.
With breathtaking acrobatic acts, a gourmet three-course dinner, DJs and state-of-the-art lighting on offer, it's a given that you're going to have an incredible experience – but that's just the start.

2. Freemasons' Hall
Freemasons’ Hall is a Christmas extravaganza with two spaces available that can be exclusively hired together or separately.
The Grand Temple is an extravagant space, perfect for large-scale parties of up to 1450 standing and 350 seated. Whilst The Gatsby Club has a capacity of 400 standing and 230 seated making it a more intimate space for tailor-made, small-scale parties.
The beautiful Art-Deco building in the heart of London lends itself perfectly to this year's theme of the 'Roaring Twenties'. Think Gatsby, jazz, the Charleston and glamourous hedonism.
3. Finsbury Square
New York, New York. This year at Finsbury Square you'll be transported to Christmas in the Big Apple. Available for a limited time in late November, the 1000 (seated) capacity sharing party is one not to miss.
The party will play homage to icons of the city including yellow taxis, skyscrapers and of course, the food. There will be delicious catering from Smart Hospitality and jaw-dropping entertainment to top off an evening in the city that never sleeps!
4. Montague on the Gardens
There's nothing quite like the festive feeling of a cosy ski lodge, and this Christmas Montague on the Gardens is bringing it to central London.
From mid-November to mid-January the Garden Grill is completely transformed with pine trees, falling snow, snowmen, reindeer and twinkly lights. The Montague Lodge can fit up to 200 guests around the centrepiece bar serving festive tipples to keep you warm and cosy.
5. 8 Northumberland Avenue
Located only a minutes' walk away from Trafalgar Square, this venue is about as central as they come. 8 Northumberland Avenue perfectly combines elegance with history and is guaranteed to provide the most special of festive surroundings.
But don't just take our word for it, because the ballroom at has been described by English Heritage as 'the grandest example of a Victorian ballroom in existence'. If that's not an accolade, then we don't know what is.
The venue has capacity for up to 1000 guests and comes complete with Musion 3D holographic projection, video display mirrors, and its own background PA system; making it the ideal venue for Christmas parties of grand proportions.
6. The Mayfair
The May Fair has been a luxury icon in London's since its doors first opened in 1927. Located in one of the city's most fashionable postcodes, just down the road from Buckingham Palace and Bond Street and Berkeley Street.
The Crystal Room is considered one of the most beautiful rooms, created with sweeping dimensions, a discreet exclusive entrance and its own private bar, this room will make any Christmas party feel like something from the movies.
7. RSA House
Whether it's sophisticated black tie festive dining or to dance the night away with cocktails and canapes, the subterranean Vaults at the RSA House in the heart of London's West End provide the perfect backdrop for some festive frolicks.
The Vaults combine the history of the house with a more contemporary blank canvas space that provides the opportunity to create the Christmas party of dreams.
