Is it too early to mention the 'C' word? Oh, let's just do it: Christmas! And six months until the annual office party season gets under way.
Ok, so you may well be counting the days to your summer holiday as you read this, and here's to a great one. But those handed the responsibility of organising the annual knees up need to be given a reminder about that old cliche: "book early to avoid disappointment". A cliche, but also a truism!
“We do the catering to suit each individual request, we've a bar in both our party rooms if relevant, and we have a dedicated team who work tirelessly to ensure your party or event runs without a hitch.”
And where better to host a Christmas Party than the Deco Theatre. And yes, the bookings are already coming in!
A "flourishing jewel" as we were recently described, The Deco is situated on Abington Square, on the periphery of the town centre - just across the road from BBC Radio Northampton, right opposite Steffens Jewellers, plus with St Michael's Car Park at the back.
The Deco has fast emerged as one of the area's most popular entertainment venues; not just for the acclaimed shows it puts on throughout the year, but as a venue for corporate and private parties, and events: for instance, Barclaycard uses The Deco for its annual 'Strictly Come Dancing' evening.
You can hire The Deco for functions throughout the year. It has fantastic facilities for hosting company away days, conferences, a day of interviews, maybe. And we have great catering facilities to make sure delegates are fed and watered throughout the day.
Said Jill Roach, of Northampton based Stage Right Productions, who manage and run The Deco: "We cater for every occasion; and events or meetings we host are tailored to the desire of those we're welcoming to our lovely venue.
"We do the catering to suit each individual request, we've a bar in both our party rooms if relevant, and we have a dedicated team who work tirelessly to ensure your party or event runs without a hitch."

And if you're looking for a fun office event this year, why not take a table of 10 for our themed comedy dining experiences - we've 'Allo 'Allo in June, Fawlty Towers in October and Absolutely Fabulous in December. Or maybe our murder-mystery dining evenings, in July, September and November. Check out our website (www.thedeco.com) for details, or call the office on 01604 491005.
By the way: party bookings for the festive season just past were sold out well in advance. So it really is worth thinking way ahead to Christmas 2017!
