The outdoor event space in London that makes more of your corporate events.
The thing about many corporate events – or at least the ones involving training or team-building – is that they tend to involve challenges: challenges to overcome perceived limitations; challenges to learn new skills and ways of solving problems; challenges to interact more effectively with colleagues and/or customers, challenges to become better leaders or team players…. And very often those challenges take place in an outdoor event space in London or somewhere like our very own Frogmore Fields, an idyllic leafy location just half an hour from the capital.
Ironically, though, at around this time of year – technically the start of autumn, even if it doesn’t feel like it – the tendency is for organisers to give up on the great outdoors until next spring or even summer. We think that’s a bit of a shame. Firstly because the winter weather makes things a bit more challenging – and therefore much more satisfying too. And secondly because our facilities make almost anything possible at Frogmore Fields, whatever the weather and regardless of the season.
OK, it’s true that cold or wet weather makes some activities rather too challenging to contemplate… You probably won’t want to take advantage of Frogmore Fields’ full-scale on-site festival and concert facilities, for example… But with our sister company’s stunning, stylish stretch tents, we can provide totally weatherproof cover for anything from a company shindig to a corporate dinner and awards ceremony; from craft activities day to a winter picnic and countless other possibilities. Underneath those stretch tents’ generous curves, you can stage almost any form of entertainment imaginable because we have the staging, the power supplies, the technical and logistical teams, sound, and lighting systems and everything else a professional production needs. And don’t forget that as promoters of several well-known boutique festivals, we’re seriously well-connected with agents for live bands, dancers, cabaret performers and DJs – not to mention first class catering providers from funky street food to silver service and fine dining cuisine.
But, we digress… Thanks to all our facilities, these things in winter aren’t challenging at all – after all, they’re not supposed to be.
The added challenge really comes when you get your people out in the fresh air, with the wind and rain in their faces and hair. That’s when things get a lot more fun – and a lot more challenging, too. Use Frogmore Fields as ‘base camp’ for expeditions to nearby water sports, karting, or other adventurous activities, or work with our experienced team to create your own range of activities on-site, from paintballing to assault courses, archery to orienteering and so much more. And then what better way to round off an exciting, challenging and thoroughly enjoyable day, than with a barbecue round a roaring campfire before retiring for a night under canvas in our luxury ‘glamping’ facilities?
Of course, it’s never a question of ‘all or nothing’ – just as you can choose a stretch tent that’s fully walled and even heated for the ‘indoors outdoors’ effect, you can of course arrange for your hardier participants to enjoy our ‘glamping’ for the night (which is far from roughing it!) while putting up others in one of the many excellent hotels and B&Bs to be found within a few minutes’ drive.
