Tasked with the party planning this year? 

Whether you’re rounding up the team’s accomplishments or celebrating the year, there’s something at Coombe to suit the occasion this Christmas. 

Our 12th-century venue makes the ideal space for a memorable festive do. Just let us add the finishing touches…

Our private Christmas Parties

Christmas party venue

What better setting than a medieval banquet hall or a magnificent marquee? Our one-of-a-kind private rooms, housing 10-500 guests, make an unforgettable Christmas party venue. 

Private parties are available throughout December and include exclusive access to a chosen historic function room. 

Each guest will receive:

  • A drink on arrival
  • A set three-course meal
  • Half a bottle of wine 

Plus a disco and dancefloor to shake off the work day.

For smaller groups, your team can enjoy drinks, canapés, and a 3-course meal courtesy of our Occasions Package. Email christmas@coombeabbey.com to arrange the perfect private event. 

Say thank you…

We’re sure you go the extra mile for your team – and what better time than Christmas to gift them something special?

Just let us know: our in-house florist can create bespoke bouquets to be delivered to your event or to be placed in guests bedchambers.

For something a little different, you arrange gifts from our Artisan Market, specialising in fresh local and seasonal produce, including hampers, artisan beer and advent calendars.

…or add a little extra

Christmas party venue

It’s easy to dread those two words: “team building”.

But our on-site Go Ape isn’t your standard ice-breaker. Get them jumping, swinging, and climbing in the treetops when you add a Go Ape experience to your next meeting – or add some adventure to your Christmas event.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, join us for the We Cook, You Carve food experience. You’ll enjoy a three-course roast served in one of our private rooms. 

Whatever your requirements, speak to our expert planners to find a package that works for you. 

What else is on?

We’re proud of our exclusive business events – but there’s much more fun to get involved in this Christmas!

Party Nights at Coombe with Free Radio’s JD

At Coombe, we’re getting jolly with Party Nights in our festive Marquee, hosted by JD of The JD & Roisin Free Radio Show. 

You’ll be greeted with fizz on arrival, then enjoy a three-course dinner and spend a night rubbing shoulders with fire breathers and carol singers. Ending with a silent disco! 

Festive Murder Mystery

It’s 1946, and we’re throwing the biggest Christmas party Coombe has ever seen to welcome “Our Boys” home from the war. But there’s just one hiccup – there’s been a murder…

Who’s behind it? Join us for a night of live entertainment and a three-course meal as you solve the mystery. Then, the party’s back on track! 

Festive Mediaeval Banquet

The King has claimed the Abbey and thrown open the doors for all to enjoy a Christmas feast. There’s fun, feasting, and festive celebration on the cards! 

You’ll be greeted with a glass of mead on arrival, then enjoy the four-course banquet. Baron’s Broth, anyone? 

With a goblet in hand, you’ll go on to party like it’s 1539 in your best smart or mediaeval attire. 

Gatsby Ball

Nothing says glamour like a Gatsby Ball. 

This sophisticated night is perfectly spent with friends, family, or colleagues. Get on your gladrags for:

  • A cocktail on arrival
  • A set four-course meal
  • Live entertainment 
  • Casino tables
  • An after-party

…and more. Is luck on your side? Join us in our lavish Marquee to find out.
