Last Saturday saw one of our most involved events of the year. Organising just a normal corporate family fun day is time consuming but creating a bespoke event for over 700 people was a huge task. For over six months, our very own Lisa, Vicky, Helen and Kelly worked tirelessly to produce a traditional English family fun day to coincide with our client’s 100th birthday anniversary.
With over 15 separate activities, which included a traditional huge Ferris wheel, ferret racing and Morris Dancing, there were some not-so traditional activities too. Families got to challenge each other on our Rodeo Bull, giant Scalextric, a Go Kart obstacle course and even at holding a tarantula in our pets’ corner!
For the children, we had created a unique treasure hunt, which kept them busy all day! Helping all the way was our kid’s activity team of eight super-talented children’s entertainers.
Using only food producers from the surrounding area, children could mix their own smoothie by peddling a bicycle while parents could choose from a selection of locally-crafted beers to wash down their BBQ (again containing all local produce).
For people who could still move after all the food, there was a further tent offering teas, cakes and scones.
The big surprise of the day was revealed at 4pm. Via a huge screen, and with the aid of lots of technical wizardry, we had a live audiovisual link-up with Germany where over 9000 employees were enjoying their own birthday celebrations.
With startling similarities to the Eurovision Song Contest, the cue words “This is Germany calling” were heard and, with X Factor passion, our pre-warmed-up audience cheered and waved when English and German colleagues could see and hear each other.
After all that, the live band kicked in and later, as the sun came down, people started drifting home after a very enjoyable, fun-packed day. We would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work and in giving our clients a great birthday.
