Pretoria Venues for Year-end FunctionsIdeas and Pretoria Venues for Year-end Functions that Will Have Employees Talk
Everyone has been working hard during the year and looks forward to a one-of-a-kind year-end function, but you still need some winning ideas to make it a special event. When it comes to the selection of Pretoria venues for year-end functions, you can rest assured that the Monument Function Centre at the Voortrekker Monument has a venue for every type, size and style of event.
Whether you want to host an outdoor treasure hunt or an indoor murder mystery party for your small group of employees, you will find that Monument Function Centre meets all the requirements. This being said, if you want to host a larger corporate gala evening, you will also find the function centre is one of the few Pretoria venues for year-end functions that meets you every requirement for that type of event as well. But, let us first get back to inspiration for the event. Below are a few of the popular themes or ideas to make it a special occasion.
A Jack Daniel or Johnny Walker Theme Event
Though it may seem rather unusual, having one of the above two themes will enable you to stylishly decorate the event venue in silhouettes, black and white or red and gold linen, or go the bar theme route, complete with wine or whisky barrels, a bartender with flair, bar signs and the like.
The Circus is in Town
A festive carnival feeling can be attained with this theme. Have a dancer, juggler, stilt walker, clown, magician and acrobats perform at your year-end function. Add even more interest by setting up a few carnival stores where guests can play Plinko, throw a ball at someone at the dunk-tank, shoot ducks with water pistols or try to topple cans with a ping-pong ball, among other outlandish ideas. Red and white or blue and white are two colour themes that come to mind. With these themes, you can either host a day event at the function centre where the employees can bring their entire families along, or you could have it as a stylish evening event at one of the indoor venues at the Monument complex.
Amazing Race or Treasure Hunt
Divide the guests into themed teams and have them hunt for clues regarding where to go next; now decide on a few tasks that they must perform. There is ample outdoor space at the Voortrekker Monument, along with historical buildings and animals to make this a truly unique event. At the end of the race, have them barbeque together or dine at one of the available venues at the function centre.
Lost in France
Decorate the venue space to look like Paris or a part of France. You can make a large Eiffel Tower mural and create a truly romantic ambience with this theme. Guests can come dressed in formal evening wear or as artists, songwriters, performers or other suitable characters. Serve French cuisine and do not forget the wine! French music, vintage or art movies, lovely food and lovely wine will make it a function worth remembering.
Yester-Year or “Toeka se Dae”
With the Voortrekker Monument and several other historical landmarks and buildings at the Monument Function Centre, you have the perfect setting for a rustic ambience, old-time dressing and a champagne breakfast year-end function with a tea garden setting.
Why not go with the romantic fairy theme? It will allow you to work wonders with drapes, plants and lights. With this theme, guests come dressed as fantasy characters, while the tables are decorated in green or pink, amidst a lush garden setting. Choose from several venues at the complex to host your event. The De Kroon Kamer is set high on a hill overlooking Pretoria with the Schanskop Amphitheatre giving you the historical setting required for an old-time theme like this. The Blikkantien has a historical, but relaxed atmosphere while the Monument Restaurant can serve as a daytime lunch venue. Are you perhaps looking for a smaller venue to cater for your small team of employees? Then the Proviand Tappas Bar is the answer.
Regardless whether you go with a formal or informal theme and event focus, once you have viewed our venues, you will agree that the Monument Function Centre offers the best Pretoria venues for year-end functions.
