What do you do for your Staff Christmas party when you are one of Surrey and Berkshire’s most popular, award winning pub chains?  The answer is to hold your belated Staff Celebration in the quieter month of January at H G Wells Conference & Events Centre.

The seven Barons Pub’s busiest time of year is the festive season and New Year when the staff are very busy hosting meals and celebrations for others.  So what better way to thank the staff for all their hard work, than to let H G Wells Conference & Events Centre organise and host a party to remember.

The evening was attended by 280 staff members who travelled en masse by coaches.  They were served drinks on arrival at our Wells and Griffin Bars. The staff were issued with vouchers that they could exchange for drinks from our extensive range of beers, wines, spirits, or soft drinks, whilst listening to gentle background music played on our Baby Grand Piano in the Griffin Room throughout the evening. 

There was a half hour awards ceremony, to thank special members of staff for their commitment and hard work throughout 2017.  Whilst some people preferred the relaxing atmosphere of the Griffin Room, the DJ got the party started by playing atmospheric music in the Wells Room.

A delicious buffet was served at 8:30pm and regularly replenished with a mouth watering selection of tasty dishes; such as Mini Quiches, Mini Fish and Chips, and Teriyaki Beef and Sesame Skewers and many more.  The organisers were able to select the food from our wide selection of buffet options.  We also offer dietary requirements, such as vegan, vegetarian and gluten free.

The venue looked splendid; with the welcome screens in reception displaying the Barons Logo, tables set with black cloths (at the client’s request) and a green coloured wall wash to give a party ambience.  The Wells room provided a spectacular space,  with high ceilings, dance floor, bar and stunning lighting effects for the disco.  There was also a photo booth, which was very popular with everyone taking pictures with their colleagues, and team mates, as a memento of a amazingly memorable and enjoyable night out.

It was a pleasure to host Barons Party and a great way to start the New Year here at H.G. Wells.
