The agency, which saw an 87% increase in seasonal gross profit from its Christmas-themed events last year, has created two festive themed events this year, a Ho Ho Quiz and a Festive Pub Explorer. Both activities were designed with teambuilding and communication in mind.

Jonny Edser, MD of Wildgoose, said: "We are already seeing a 30% spike in bookings from the same time last year, when we ran 117 Christmas themed events in December 2014."

This rise in Christmas activity bookings reflects the current trend for corporates putting teambuilding back on the agenda as the economy improves.
