Star-shaped mince pies, Christmas tree crumpets and some very sore legs – how Claremont does Christmas

Claremont Christmas Party
Claremont Christmas Party

This year Claremont is trying to use our festive celebrations to practice what we preach!

We started off with our ‘made by apprentices‘ Christmas Party for clients where Matt, Monica and Sean were given a brief and (tight) budget and turned our offices into festive wonderland, complete with star shaped mince pies, Christmas-tree shaped crumpets and a jazz trio.

And while the staff away day was as fun as everyone hoped, we finished off the party season by taking part in yesterday’s Victoria Park 10k Santa Run raising money for the Fashion and Textile Children’s Trust.
