Corporate Family Fun Days

Corporate

Family Fun Days

Creating an inclusive family fun day that’s

remembered for all the right reasons takes a

lot of planning but is one of the most rewarding

ways for an organisation to bring everyone

together. The day can be about recognising

the support a family provides an employee

throughout the year or rewarding employees

for their dedication. Perhaps the occasion is

to incentivise teams or celebrate an award;

whatever the reasons are a corporate family fun

day should ideally be low on company speeches

and high on entertainment.

27


Before deciding on the venue to host your family

fun day, you’ll need to have an idea of how you

see the day; will it have a theme? Are you going for

fairground attractions and big top entertainment or

is it a picnic in the park, a mad hatter’s tea party or a

mini summer festival to rival Lattitude?

With young children in attendance don’t forget

they’ll need entertaining. Different zones work well;

an animal petting zone, face painting and arts and

crafts zone, and a magic and balloon modelling

zone are just a few suggestions. You may want to

include a quiet area for children too.

For older children, hold circus skills workshops,

laser clay shooting and duck herding. An outdoor

cinema showing classic films or movies to match

your theme, giant board games and sumo wrestling

are fun options too.

Add in ice-cream bikes, candy carts and coffee huts,

portaloos and first-aiders and your family fun day is

taking form.

28


Corporate Family Fun Days

For entertaining the adults, you could have team

sports in the style of It’s a Knockout or human table

football. Individual games like kangaroo boxing and

foot golf are always enjoyable and are certain to

generate lots of laughter from participants as well as

bystanders. Zorbing, segway races, table tennis are

more suggestions and if you want something that

brings adults and children together, you can’t go

wrong with a game or two of rounders.

The options for catering are vast; BBQs and hog

roasts, street food and bowl food, afternoon tea

and picnics are perfect for a summer family fun

day. Pizzas, chilli and nachos, kebabs and a smoke

house grill are other possibilities. If you’ve given

your day a nautical feel, fish and chips must be on

the menu and if the circus big top is your theme,

candy floss, popcorn and toffee apples will need to

make an appearance!

And now all that’s left is the obligatory bouncy

castles and a plan b in case of rain!

29


The home of the Scout movement certainly brings

kudos to a corporate family fun day. Gilwell Park

is set deep in Epping Forest but is only 15 miles

from central London. The stunning Georgian White

House is the centre-piece of the estate, providing an

elegant welcome to delegates, families and special

guests. With nine function rooms and a marquee,

plus over 100 acres of grounds, there is certainly

plenty of scope for creating a memorable day

without a big budget.

Home to over 30 on-site activities from archery

and abseiling to zip wires and a 3G swing, the

on-site events team at Gilwell Park will work with

you to incorporate their facilities into your day.

They have a really flexible attitude so they are more

than happy to add in your ideas allowing you to

shape, design and scale your event exactly to your

needs. With over 30 years of experience, the team

at Gilwell know what works well so certainly use

their knowledge to guide you. And if you’re using

an event company to organise your day, they will

be excited to have so much beautiful countryside at

their disposal.

Good to know: Gillwell Park has free on-site

parking for up to 200 vehicles, disabled facilities

and in-house catering. All proceeds from events go

to the Scout movement so that’s another excellent

reason for picking Gillwell.

A Day in the Life of...

Lauren

Hewett

Stadium Sports Manager at Allianz Park

Lauren Hewett is the Stadium Sports Manager at

Allianz Park and looks after the day-to-day running

of all the community sports held at the stadium in

addition to organising match days for the Saracens

teams and specific sports events.

She took time out from her busy schedule to

tell us more about her exciting role.

42


A Day in the Life

A Day in the Life

Tell us more about your role at Allianz Park.

Day to day, my job is to deliver all community

sports in the stadium so school rugby and sports

days, athletics meets, dance classes, cricket and

fun runs. In addition, I run match days for the

wider Saracens teams – Saracens Women and

Men’s Storm games – both of which just won their

respective leagues which is great news.

I also work with the RFU (Rugby Football Union) to

deliver England Women’s International games and

schools’ semi-finals. In addition to the NFL (National

Football League) whose teams train here at the

stadium in the lead up to their games held at Wembley.

Another big focus is Maccabi GB, the largest

nationwide provider of sport, health and wellbeing

activities for the UK’s Jewish community. They host

one of their largest events at Allianz Park every June.

And then there are the private clients who want to

host their own sports events, tournaments or socials,

so there’s quite a mix and no day is the same!

What do you do when you first arrive at work?

I like getting into the office early so I can do a walk

around of the site to make sure all equipment is

ready and setup for the day. Then I make a cup

of tea, chat to my team and run through those

first emails of the day just in case there are any

last-minute changes that I need to be aware of.

Matt Impey, Wired Photos

Why should organisers chose Allianz Park to

host their event?

The great thing about Allianz Park is the space

and versatility of the site; we really can cater for

events of all shapes and sizes. Take for example

our Olympic Bar. This can be transformed from a

track with long jump, high jump and pole vault,

to a boxing arena, purpose-built gym, netball

courts, an inflatable obstacle course or public

bar for an event with a stage and film crew. The

possibilities are really endless. I also really enjoy

a challenge so am always looking for new and

different events to bring to the Stadium!

Do you have a favourite part of your role?

I love the variety that my role offers; no two

bookings are the same and it’s very rewarding

working together with my team and clients to pull

off a successful event.

What challenges do you face?

I think in any events role there aren’t enough

hours in the day to get everything done! But

also, not enough days and weekends in the

year to book in events! Over the winter we have

rugby almost every weekend, and then in the

summer we have a full calendar of sports days

and athletics meets so trying to book in new

clients and finding availability can be tricky!

46


A Day in the Life

What do you do to relax?

I play a lot of tennis so you can usually find me

playing with friends on the weekends, or maybe

practising some yoga. I would love to be able to

do a headstand but I am still a long way off!

Thanks Lauren.

Allianz Park is also a superb choice of venue

for meetings and conferences, corporate

celebrations, weddings and Simchas. The venue

boasts a brand new Kosher kitchen that’s licensed

by the London Beth Din, has ample free parking

and can host events for up to 2,000 people. It is

located barely 300 metres from Junction 2 of the

M1, 12 minutes from the M25 and seven minutes

from Brent Cross shopping centre, with easy

access to major arterial roads such as the A1, A41

and the North Circular Road.

Day delegate rates start from £35.

Named after West Indies legend Brian Lara’s

record-breaking unbeaten score of 501 for

Warwickshire in 1994, the new 501* suite brings a

new sophisticated, stylish and modern appeal to

the facilities at Edgbaston.

The innovative design of the room encapsulates

Lara’s achievement with a tiled wall providing a

ball-by-ball account of the innings and a plaque

to greet guests on entering, dedicated to the events

at Edgbaston on 6 June, 1994.

Based on the 1st floor of the South Stand, the

facility captures the iconic pitch perfectly with a

large glass fronted view. With an informal feel and

dedicated bar, this new contemporary space is

ideal for networking events, break-out sessions,

drinks receptions or buffet-style dining and can

accommodate for up to 170 people.
