What is the difference between a team building event and a company party?
The goal of our team building events is to drive communication and collaboration amongst attendees. We achieve this by creating a fun atmosphere, and by setting team challenges which require the individuals to work cooperatively to achieve the objectives.
Our team building events follow a process of using video games that has been scientifically proven to improve team performance. With the cooperative game playing providing an incredibly fun and friendly environment for the highly productive team experience.
The goal of our company parties is to entertain and create an awesome, memorable experience for each attendee. We achieve this by putting on a gaming show like no other, creating a party atmosphere, with dancing, singing and our version of live music.
We pack the venue with games and activities and make your team the superstars of the event.
What are the area requirements for an office event?
We recommend you set aside an area for the party to keep things simple. This can be achieved through an existing breakout area, or through moving some desks and chairs for the duration of the event. We recommend roughly 1 square metre to 1.25 square metres of breakout space per attendee.
How long does setup and breakdown take for office events?
Onsite event preparation and equipment set up will usually take around 3 hours for office events.
Equipment breakdown and will be completed in around an hour, with your office returned to working order shortly prior to our team leaving.
What are the electrical requirements of the equipment and event?
With the equipment being designed for home use, our power and technical requirements are low. We simply need access to UK standard 230v sockets. All of our equipment is PAT tested, and we perform the required safety checks and risk assessments prior to the event and during the event set up.
What games should our event have?
We recommend that we work together to select the best games and entertainment for your team.
We have pretty much every games console ever made to pick from, we have hundreds of video games, virtual reality, arcades, table top and board games, so we can be very flexible to the requirements of your team.
Regarding the entertainment, we like to create a little stage show at every event. This includes games dance-offs, rock out sessions and so much more.
How many employees can attend?
The answer really depends on the size of the venue. We have done events for 10 people right up to 1,000.
We have the equipment and capacity to deliver events for 1,000+ and so it is really just dependent on space.
As a rule of thumb we will try to arrange for a game station for every 3-5 attendees. We have found this provides the right balance for everyone to play together and get involved in the fun.
What will the event cost?
For up to 100 attendees…
Our office team building events & company celebrations are available for between £1,500 and £3,900.

Does the event include food and drink?
For events for less than 100 people we separate food and drink and have it as an optional extra. If we are hosting an event in your office, our clients will usually order the food and drink separately. For example pizza and soft drinks and beers.
However for large venue based events, for more than 100 people, we like to arrange for street food traders to do the catering, and we include catering in our large event pricing. Using our network of street food traders helps us create a really cool Gaming & Grill festival, and a truly unique experience that your team will love.

We can design, write promo copy, and even create promo videos.
Simply mention this as part of your requirements when booking the event and we will factor the work into our event plan.
Do you do ticketed events for the public?
Yes, we have hosted a number of ticketed events in the past. We hope these will be returning to our event range in 2020.
