Christmas Forty-Two Floors High


Ascending 200 financial analysts into the City of London clouds isn’t on the usual Christmas party agenda. Wanting to treat employees to a stand-out celebration, PWC chose Landing Forty Two’s skyline views as the source of wonder for festive jubilation.


PWC selected a cocktail reception floorplan so delegates could soak up the venue’s 360 degree views of London’s finest Landmarks. Greeted by one of Landing Forty Two’s dedicated Events Managers, attendees mingled with colleagues, beginning the flowing celebrations with a Prosecco reception.  


With elegant Festive theming embellishing the space, the party atmosphere sparkled as much as the sky’s surrounding star-scape. Including Christmas trees, glittering table-centre decorations, a luminescent LED bar and window-vinyl snowflakes, guests absorbed the unique opportunity to witness a panoramic view of the Square Mile through seasonal enchantment.


As the party took full shape, dining could commence. PWC opted for bowl food from preferred catering partner Moving Venue’s array of menu choices. Guests relished gastronomic plates such as Shredded crispy Duck with iceberg lettuce, cucumber, spring onions and hoisin sauce, NY-style Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Chickpea and Lentil Dahl as well as classic Roast breast of Turkey with roasted vegetables, braised red cabbage, pigs in blankets and red wine jus.


Landing Forty Two’s capacious interiors enabled the in-house production team to craft a bespoke drinks-reception floorplan including a seated area for guests that preferred to relax at a table above standing to mingle.


Post-dinner, it was time for dancing. As the DJ began the tunes, delegates took to the dancefloor, enjoying the celebratory mood enhanced by LED colour-changing uplighters and wash lighting alongside a full-service open-bar. With the client commenting that the event was regarded as the ‘best Christmas party we’ve had in 5 years’ from the food, to the music selection to the stunning views, an unforgettable time was had by all.
