Whether you are wining and dining prospective clients or simply thanking your valued employees for their hard work, you want to be sure your event is a night to remember.

Different events for corporate occasions

Check out our seven ideas for hosting a memorable corporate party this summer!

1. Action Days










Corporate Action Days are immersive and versatile which can be held outdoors if weather permits or indoors if hosted in a large industrial warehouse space. Perfect for corporate networking or encouraging inclusive team building in a fun, relaxed environment, action days can be opportunities to learn new skills, cast yourself against your colleagues in a physical challenge or work together as a team to solve a complex puzzle or scenario.For the ultimate in team – building activities think It’s a Knockout or Total Wipeout featuring giant inflatables, water slides and cool bungee runs. Other popular activities include zorbing, quad bike tracks or even fun Rodeo Bulls.An outdoor marquee can provide the ideal place for work colleagues to break out from the festivities, grab a bite to eat and take a breather. And of course, a marquee space can provide the perfect excuse to party on into the night!

2. Family Fun Days










Perfect for the warmer summer months, company family fun days offer an eclectic mix of entertainment aimed at creating maximum family fun. Think team sports events, fairground rides, coconut shies, hook a duck stalls and pop-up artisan food stalls. For the kids, giant board games such as Jenga, Chess or Connect 4 work well. Add in a few Circus Entertainers and Stilt Walkers to the bargain and a traditional ice cream stall and you have the perfect summer party atmosphere.Family fun days are a great way to thank your valued employees for their hard work and commitment, fostering a positive company ethos and inviting your colleagues’ wider families to enjoy a fun day out.

3. Paintballing










The perfect way for your team to have some fun and let off steam, paintballing has of course, long been used as an exciting way for colleagues to relax but also bond together as a team. An ideal opportunity for colleagues to get to know one another outside the confines of the working day, this activity builds essential skills of communication and teamwork; selected groups work together to tackle physical challenges and compete to win the game.

4. The BIG Picnic










What better way to spend a balmy summer’s day than basking in the late sunshine, enjoying your colleagues’ company whilst dining alfresco under the evening stars?Pick your perfect spot in the park, lay your picnic blankets and crack open the prosecco as you kick back and relax to one of the country’s many outdoor concerts available to book in our English country parks. From our world acclaimed Halle Orchestra to headline 80’s pop artists with firework finales, a company outing to a Party in the Park event is guaranteed to impress.

5. Cocktails on the River










The ultimate in exclusivity, why not hire a canal barge for your summer corporate party and treat your staff to cocktails and canapes on the riverbank. Individual and unique, a canal boat would of course provide your own individual entertaining space and would be the ideal opportunity to entertain corporate clients whilst showcasing the sights of our wonderful city has to offer.Remember to check with individual operators what each hire includes. Many canal boats include stop offs in key city centre eateries and bars into the package deal.

6. Escape Room Experience










If you love television action shows such as The Crystal Maze or you are an avid watcher of drama series such as Prison Break then a live escape room would be the perfect corporate get together. Faced with a variety of scenarios and locked together in a confined space may not be everyone’s cup of tea, so remember to check all your colleagues are happy with the prospect. However, the perfect team building opportunity, you will need to work together as a group to crack the clues and solve the puzzles to escape in time.

7. A summer ball










A corporate summer ball is of course an opportunity to host a memorable and unique event. Selecting a classy theme for your occasion can often transform your chosen event space, set the mood and create a fantastic atmosphere for your party-goers.Take your guests to the heady streets of Rio de Janerio with a sexy and glamorous Carnival theme – exotic flowers such as Brazilian orchids and hibiscus for table centres, sparkly letter lights lighting up the stage or dancefloor spelling ‘RIO’ or ‘SAMBA’ perhaps, colourful feathers and sexy ambient uplighting will create the perfect party atmosphere.Transforming a space into a replica of A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream can be easily achieved using earthy elements and lots of greenery such as rustic wicker and the addition of natural elements like moss and ivy.

Slate boards can create wonderful table numbers. Add in a few pillar candles and decorate the room with fairy lights for a magical touch. Hosting your event in a traditional tepee tent with hay bales for seating, fire pits, colourful paper lanterns and oodles of fairy lights decorating the ceiling can bring forth the perfect festival vibe for a summer outdoor barbeque event.
