In early December Eunomians from far and wide gathered at Bristol HQ for a festive celebration. Kat and Laura were this year’s Christmas Party Elves, and did a great job at organising the event.
The afternoon started with a choice of activities. Some braved the cold and ice skated around Millennium Square, while others relaxed in front of a classic Christmas film. Those with a more competitive streak opted for a game of ping pong at nearby Kongs, or to compete for the Duncan Wilson cup in a meeting-room-turned-table-football-arena.
After the activities everyone headed back to the office to get dolled up. Many donned costumes inspired (some quite tenuously so…) by this year’s theme; waste crime. Once the glad rags and sparkly trousers were on, everyone gathered for a live performance from Eunomia’s in-house band, Dirty Murph and the Kerbside Sorters. The band played their Christmas hit, Routing Rocking Reindeer, as well as some old favourites at the request of the enthusiastic crowd.
After the show, everyone headed around the corner to Mud Dock for dinner and dancing.
Party regular DJ Kane returned to get everyone on the dancefloor, prompting some quite spectacular, and sometimes outrageous, dance moves.
The dressing up box also proved particularly popular.
When it was last orders at the bar, many Eunomians headed back to the office to continue the party. Someone mixed up some “dead dog” cocktails, inspired by Oscar the dog, and with DJ Kane in tow the dancing continued well into the early hours.
And of course, no Eunomia Christmas party could be complete without the traditional late night Brompton race around Queen Square.
Thanks again to the Christmas Elves, no doubt everyone is looking forward to the next one.
