"Getting in touch with the National Railway Museum and organising initial planning meetings was extremely easy - the events team there took everything on board and catered to our every wish. Our Partners thoroughly enjoyed the evening, with comments fed back to us such as 'the best Christmas Party I've ever attended' and 'perfect venue, perfect night.' We couldn't have wished for a more perfect Christmas party, the National Railway Museum stands apart from its competitors as it offers such a unique venue and event experience."
