What’s The Dress Code For A Cheltenham Christmas Party?

Christmas is one of the most exciting times of the year when it comes to style, and it’s perfectly acceptable to go all out glamour for the party season! When it comes to your Christmas party night, most hotel venues will state a ‘Dress to impress’ policy, so come wearing something that will have you sparkling and feeling a million dollars! If you’re opting for a delicious festive lunch or dinner, then we’d suggest a smart/casual dress theme, or you could alternatively ask your group to come wearing their favourite Christmas jumper and offer a prize for the best one! If you’re in doubt about what to wear for your Christmas celebration, we’d advise speaking to the venue for confirmation.
