Christmas party bookings surge at Aberdeen Football Club

Aberdeen Football Club’s catering and hospitality partner, Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, has reported record demand for its Christmas party nights after announcing 95% of available dates have already sold out.

Last year Pittodrie enjoyed its best Christmas season in more than five years, and this year looks to be better still. In a first for the venue, it has now added an additional shared party night to its December line up, in order to meet the unprecedented demand.

The Stadium, which hosts festive party nights on Fridays and Saturdays throughout December, had already introduced a new, shared lunch date to its seasonal offering, but will now offer a seventh ‘bring your party to our party’ celebration, on Friday 23rd December.  

Debra Lorimer, Sales Manager at Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, said: “2016 is on course to be a record winter season for us, which is a positive end to the year given the economic difficulties experienced across the city.  

“To help our customers, we decided to freeze the cost of our Christmas packages this year and offered a number of early bird deals, including giving one free place to every table of ten reserved by 31st March, this has definitely helped secure early bookings.  

“Given the demand, we are now looking to expand our Christmas offering by creating a series of parties in January, for those who are working or too busy in December to join in on the festivities.”

In addition to the January events, the venue is also offering private groups of up to six people, the option of holding a Christmas celebration in one of its Executive Boxes. Guests can enjoy a private dining experience overlooking the historic Pittodrie pitch, before joining the main celebration to dance the night away.  

Priced at £39.50 per person, this year’s party nights include a glass of fizz on arrival, a festive three course carvery, as well as music and entertainment until 1am. The additional party night on 23rd December is being offered at a reduced rate of £33.00 per person.  

Bespoke packages can be created for private parties of between 60 and 320 guests, from just £29 per person with catering options ranging from, canapes to set menu, or buffet style.
