Xmas at The Yard

Here at The Yard we enjoy Xmas as much as the next guy; the jumpers that are so bad they’re good, socially acceptable drinking before noon, mistletoe, that fourth tin of quality street, it’s great, we love it. But there can be a lot to think about, which is why we’re going to take care of it for you. Zero stress, all the fun. We will bring you laughter, dancing, music and not shred of tinsel in the place (unless you want tinsel?).
Just a warm, welcoming, beautiful building for you to share festivities with your friends, colleagues and loved ones.
