This year we put together a bespoke Treasure Hunt around Bournemouth for the company. We didn't want to simply offer a standard Treasure Hunt so instead whilst teams made their way around the map they had extra tasks to do. These tasks ranged from recreating a Baywatch scene and busking in the town centre to building the largest and funniest sandcastle and breakdancing in front of public. After all of the treasure hunt packs were collected we edited the videos and photos from the day and presented them, along with the winning team, at the evening dinner. The day was a great success!

Whitbread Pub Games Evening
In January we put together a Pub Games evening for Whitbread in Manchester. The event consisted of a selection of our Pub Games - Giant Skittles, Table Football, Air Hockey, Darts, Giant Connect Four, Giant Jenga, Quoits - and a Pub Quiz. The quiz was a mixture of general knowledge, sporting, music, pop culture, comedy, film and puzzle rounds plus a bespoke company round.
There were 65 guests taking part in the evening, which we split into 8 teams. The aim of the event was to challenge opposing teams to the different pub challenges working as both a team and on individual merit. To ensure maximum game play and involvement in the evening we decided to firstly open the Pub Games for two hours prior to their evening meal, then once the guests had been served their main course we started the Pub Quiz, this was followed by the guests having more time on the pub games until the evening closed at 11pm. At the end of the evening all of the scores from the Pub Games and Quiz were compiled and the winning team announced. The evening worked perfectly with everyone enjoying themselves and spending time networking with their colleagues in a relaxed environment.
Team Building at it's best!
SAS and Company asked us for team building ideas for their annual conference which was taking place at the fantastic Northop Hall Hotel near Chester. They wanted two activities on both afternoons of their event to keep everyone entertained and refreshed. Taking the onsite grounds at the hotel into consideration we proposed, and secured, a School Sports Day for day one and our Apprentice Trader event for day two.
We split the group into three teams and kept these for both challenges. The School Sports day was full of traditional races such as egg and spoon, relay and sack races plus we added on Sumo Suits to make the event even more memorable. For the Apprentice Trader we had the teams create a company, pitch their product ideas and then create an advert. We've been doing this a long time and their adverts were some of the funniest we've ever seen!
All in all both activities were a great success and we have since worked with SAS and Company on more of their events.
Family Fun Day Drumming
One of the great ways to theme a Family Fun Day is 'Around the World'. We provided this for one of our client and what they particularly enjoyed was the Drumming Workshop which we placed in the Africa and Asia area of the fun day. Everyone got involved, from adults to children, and learnt how to play the drums individually and then as a whole group. This proves that the Drumming Workshop is a versatile activity.

Had some great feedback from the client and look forward to working with them again in the future...
"Monday night's event was a great success! Many of the delegates were pretty tired after such long haul flights on the weekend so we had a few guys sloping off before the end of the night but this did not detract from the fun that the remaining guys had.
Josh was excellent in running the Event, very professional and kept all the teams engaged in the games throughout, all the team were very well drilled and instruction on each game were clear and simple so did not take up a great amount of time explaining.
Love using you guys and I look forward to working with you all again later on this year."
