Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Thank you for coming to the Head for Points Christmas party last night

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

There will be a full article on the HfP Christmas party tomorrow, if the photographer gets the pictures across to me in time!

This is the only one I actually took 🙂

Thank you to everyone who came, and to Qatar Airways for sponsoring the event.  My apologies to those of you who couldn’t get tickets.  I left at about 11.45 and there were still about 10 people there, almost six hours after it started.

Full report tomorrow, but if you have any comments on the event you can post them here today.

PS. Here is a pic a reader sent in, used with permission:

…. and here’s one we found on Anika’s phone!

…. and here is one taken whilst the raffle was being drawn:

    Just rubbing it in for those of us unable to book despite refreshing the ticket purchase page continually at the release times!!

    Thanks Rob, Anika for organising and Qatar for the booze. I’m feeling a bit ropey this morning.

    • Worzel says:

      You’ve done well Genghis- leaving after 23:45 and getting your first comment in on another post by 07:06, 🙂 .

      Fell asleep on the train, missed my stop…rescued by OH further away from London than l should have been! Thanks for organising it, very nice gathering.
      Great evening, apart from missing the raffle it was fine coming at 8pm, nobody was hurrying away, and plenty of chat continued until well after 11. l hope some of those unlucky not to get tickets still showed up.

        Oh dear…I was wondering if you made it back to waterloo in time..!!! Was good to meet you (and other regulars)! Felt a little bit rough when I woke up this morning, thanks Rob & Anika.

        Glad you made it back! Great to meet you and others, a fantastic evening! 😀
        Thanks Anika and Rob for all the hard work

    It was a great event, Rob. We enjoyed it a lot. Thank you

  • Waribai says:

    …and I thought I was a straggler leaving at 9:30! Great party. Really enjoyed the drinks and chatting with fellow HFP readers. Thanks Anika, Rob and Qatar.

    Actually, I don’t actually remember paying for any drinks even after 8pm so let us know if you need any contributions to the final bill!

  • Mickael says:

    I was one of those unlucky people who did not manage to get a ticket but did pop up by after 8pm as I work not too far from the hotel. I had really nice chats and it was a great pleasure to meet you in person Anika and Rob. You both must feel proud of what you have achieved so far.
    Thank you both.

  • Michael Canning says:

    Had a great time last night but I definitely over-did the bubbles.
    I didn’t get chatting to as many people as I would have liked, but all those I spoke to were lovely.
    Thanks for organising Rob and Anika!

    So what were all the raffle prizes in the end? I’m not London-based and have two young kids, so attending is not an option until they get a bit older!
