We're having our very first HolidayBash on 4th December and you're all invited! We've never had a holiday party as a team, it’s just not something we ever considered when we could meet in person at TestBashes. 2020 has changed a lot of things in the world and we want to take some time to do something positive with you to finish out the year.

This brand new event will feature multiple tracks so that you can choose the holiday track that interests you the most. There will be cocktail and mocktail making, baking competitions, hangout spaces, quizzes and challenges, mindfulness activities and much more. This will be a fully virtual party so pick a comfy spot for yourself, plan some snacks and dial in. We'll share joining instructions closer to the party day.

We've designed HolidayBash to be as interactive or passive as you want it to be. If forming a team to take on a challenge sounds like your thing, there will be a place for that. Prefer moving from room to room mingling? Not a problem, you can do that. Of course, if you'd prefer to meditate with others or watch the challenges happen, you can do that too. We're bringing the options and you can customise your experience around them.

Will you join us?

It wouldn’t be a holiday party without a bit of light-hearted competition! All competition entrants will start with a flat-pack gingerbread house and have a fixed time to assemble and decorate the house. Once the time is up, the host will judge the houses for:

  • First to finish and for the finished product to resemble a house
  • Best decorated
The winners for each category will receive a prize

This competition will run twice during the event so there will be plenty of opportunities to join in.

You can find details about how to enter the competition live, participate at home and the ingredients you will need on The Club.
