Venturi's Table: Chistmas corporate bookings up year on year

London team-building venue Venturi's Table Corporate Cookery Centre is claiming to be bucking the economic downturn with an increase in bookings for December events.

The centre reported a 67% year on year increase in Christmas bookings taken in September and October with the uplift especially pronounced at the end of the latter, which saw enquiries up almost 72%.

Corporates who have confirmed include Helical Bar, a London-based property development and investment company, hedge fund Prometheus Partners LLP and the London Business School.

Prometheus Partners managing partner Tim Phillips said of his decision: "Financial markets have been a highly volatile and stressful arena for our traders in the past 12 months. Being one of the few funds this year to post a positive return, our investors see the annual events at Venturi's Table as a way to thank our employees for their hard work and dedication."
