10 Event Theme Ideas for 2016

So you've decided to run an event! Now you need to choose a theme that will really engage employees across the business. Here are 10 event theme ideas that will be big in 2016.

1. Football Frenzy Evening

Euro 2016 is coming, and we're all optimistic for England to do well! Tie your corporate event into the festivities with our Football Frenzy theme. Break the ice and bond a room full of guests with classic football anthems, 3D props and a penalty shoot-out. We could even wheel out a big screen TV for you to watch the big England match, so time your event well!

2. Mad Hatter's Tea Party

Alice Through the Looking Glass is coming to cinemas in April, and we're really excited about jumping into this whimsical world! Reward your team with a Mad Hatter's Tea Party. Tumble down the rabbit hole into our beautiful garden party, complete with giant toadstools, playing cards, huge flowers, living statues and much more.

3. Pirates of the Caribbean

Captain Jack Sparrow is returning next year, and we will definitely be seeing some trailers very soon. Enjoy a theatrical dining experience with a piratical twist, and tie your event in with a massive upcoming movie release. Our Pirates of the Caribbean evening is one of the most colourful, fun and lively events on the menu. Party with Jack and his crew. Just make sure you don't end up in Davy Jones' locker...

4. James Bond Evening

Who doesn't love the suave style of 007? Live the life of Bond, whip on a tuxedo or your best Bond girl frock, and enjoy being fully immersed in our spy-themed evening. Meet classic Bond heroes and villains for a night of intrigue and espionage! With beautifully intricate painted backdrops, casino tables and a Shirley Bassey tribute act singing the classic Bond songs, this is an unforgettable night of glamour and excitement.

5. Outer Space Evening

Tim Peake is making us proud to be British as he conducts fascinating experiments on the International Space Station. Be like Tim and blast off to another dimension with an Outer Space Evening! Dine, drink and get acquainted with your fellow earthlings in a completely immersive room of the third kind. Think aliens, otherworldly swirls of smoke, UV planets, star table centres, and a fantastic rocket centrepiece.

6. Monte Carlo Evening

We all love the action of the Monaco Grand Prix, from the high octane racing to the glitz and glamour. Take your event guests off limits with our six-lane Scalextric track and casino tables, plus immersive sea and sun theming to bring the fun. Hit the casino and get competitive! The person with the most money at the end of the evening will be rewarded with a bottle of champagne – do you dare spray it in true F1 winner style?

7. Superhero Evening

A slew of new superhero movies are coming out this year. Everyone is going to be thinking about masked marvels and caped crusaders! Give them an event to remember with our Superhero Evening. Put the fate of the world in your team's hands and let them express their inner geeks by jumping into one of our wildest parties. Get involved in our Marvel Avengers Kinect game, battle the real-life Skrull menace, and grab a team photo in front of our very own Batmobile!

8. Winter Wonderland

We ran the numbers to find out what our most popular Christmas party theme was. The answer is Winter Wonderland and we're not surprised, because it will enchant and impress any group of guests! Our events team go all-out to create a setting fit for an ice queen. The room will look stunning, as guests enter through frosted pillars, meet Jack Frost and be entertained by a Christmas-themed band. It may seem too early to think about Christmas; but the earlier you book it, the more control you have over the rest of the budget (and the less you skimp on the Christmas party budget)!

9. Brazilian Night

The Olympics are going to Rio de Janeiro this year! Why not take advantage of some of that Brazilian fever with a themed evening? The spirit of carnival will really bring your party alive, break the ice between guests and get everyone's hips wiggling. Enjoy a show-stopping drum routine, scoff as many churros as you can eat and refresh your guests with an authentic beach cocktail bar.

10. Spooky Evening

Something wicked this way comes in October! It's Halloween of course, and nothing will scare your guests' socks off more than our brilliant Spooky Evening. Enjoy an evening in our deliciously ghoulish graveyard, become immersed with swirling mist across the floor and watch out for the giant 3D devil-dog statues...are they alive? You'll just have to book and find out!
