Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.

2011 saw the Royal Wedding… the end of Libyan dictatorship… and the Web Applications Christmas Party!! What a year!

The Web Applications festive shindig, held at the prestigious Imperial War Museum in Manchester on Friday evening, was a sensational setting for a sensational occasion!

Complete with Craig’s epic annual speech, the Webbie Awards Ceremony, Secret Santa, a surprise seating plan, a three-course meal and an open bar, all of the Webbies were feeling in the party spirit – and with such a glorious line-up, who could blame them?

It served as a most social occasion for us all to catch up with the colleagues we may not see on a daily basis, as well as hob-nob with our batch of handsome Directors:

It was an evening of polite madness and sensible mayhem, of delightful surprises, revealed truths and common misconceptions. Speaking of which, prior to the great event, Craig Dean was a firm believer of the “Four Ds” rule:

Developers Don’t Do Disco.

While it isn’t every day our Chief Executive is proven incorrect, the photographic evidence of the Christmas Party 2011 would suggest that some developers, in fact, DO do disco!

Dark horse Joe Taylor (initials matching both Justin Timberlake and John Travolta, which has turned out to be no coincidence at all), is a true uninhibited dance floor hero, joining the likes of Patrick Swayze and Michael Flatley in the ‘Dancing Legends’ Hall of Fame. Just look at him go:

A huge thanks to Web Applications, who pulled out all the stops to ensure its staff had a really fantastic evening. How they will be able to top this for 2012 is anyone’s guess…
