Planning a Year End Function

Planning a Year End Function


It is never too early to start planning a year end function. This is an opportunity to really spoil your team, be it live or virtual. By getting an early start, you can begin to get them excited for a fabulous event that will make their hard work all worthwhile.

When planning a year end function it does not have to be another boring corporate event. This is really an opportunity to break the mould, surprise and entertain!  It can also include an awards ceremony, lucky draw prizes and so much more. Opt for a themed event and you will have your company bonding over discussions about outfits and accessories. 

Planning a year end function should not be left to the last minute. We suggest that you start sooner rather than later.

Here are some things to consider when planning a year end function:

  • Budget – Set this early to avoid a headache later in the year.
  • Who will you invite – Staff, clients, plus ones….?
  • Pick a date – The normal time for a company year end party is in the first two weeks of December, but this is not a set rule. Choose a few dates to present to prospective venues.
  • Invitations – These should be sent out earlier and include all the details about date, venue and dress code.
  • Venue – There are so many venue options to choose from and your event planner can help with your final selection.  The venue you choose will inevitably be determined by the size of event and budget.

Contact us for an initial discussion about your ideas and budget and let us come up with some great concepts.  The Event Planners will handle all event management on your behalf, from conceptualisation to execution.


We have created two wonderful Year End Function packages to suit your company’s budget. Spoil your employees with top class food and entertainment in a brand new, unique setting in Paarl. Safe, easy access with accommodation options available too. We are ready to start planning your event.

Nal’iBali Story Bosso

Nal’iBali Story Bosso


Nal’ibali (isiXhosa for “here’s the story”) is a national reading-for-enjoyment campaign to spark children’s potential through storytelling and reading.

Aimed at reawakening a love of stories and reading among all South Africans, Story Bosso is Nal’ibali’s annual multilingual storytelling talent search, where all South Africans – young and old – are invited to tell a story about their hero.  Not only to educate their children, but to pass on some of the values they stood for too. Younger storytellers are invited to share a story of their own hero, or a fictional hero.

It was our pleasure and privilege to assist the Nal’iBali team to plan and coordinate the Story Bosso events for the second year in a row.  This year the events were held in Gauteng (Soweto), Kwa-Zulu Natal (Newcastle), Eastern Cape (Stutterheim) and Limpopo (Polokwane).

Local school children, community leaders and storytellers are invited to join in an inspirational fun morning of storytelling, singing and dancing.  There are no rules as long as you feel inspired to tell a original story and perhaps win a prize!

Well known and inspirational story tellers such as Marc Lottering and Yvonne Chaka Chaka support and attend the Story Bosso events each year to entertain young and old with stories, rhymes and songs!

Nal’iBali has crept very deep into our hearts.  Through them we have been to many places we have never seen before and met the most kind and generous individuals who will go very far for this worthy cause.
