We have been working with Jagex on their company team days for the past three years. This year Jagex wanted to put on an outdoor festival for their entire office, allowing the staff to enjoy a day of fun and bringing everyone together. In past years we have done similar types of events ranging from dragon boat racing, to a travelling carnival, however this year needed to be one their staff would remember. 

Working closely with our client, we decided on a Wild West theme for the outdoor festival. Jagex are a leading online computer games developer and it was decided they wanted their staff to let their hair down and have fun for the day. With the theme, staff could dress up and really get into the spirit of the day.

We put together a range of wild west themed activities including a rodeo bull, pistol shooting, cactus looping and much more. As well as this we installed a saloon bar, served up Mexican style food and to really finish it off we built four giant tipi’s where staff could relax and take in the atmosphere.

To entertain the staff, we hired two main acts, a Mexican Mariachi band and a Hoedown band. After some drinks had been consumed, it didn’t take long before there was lots of line dancing with the Hoedown and plenty of sing-songs with the Mariachi band. Throughout the day, there was always something to do, whether it be chilling out with a cold beverage, playing some wild west Xbox games, or hopping on one of the fairground rides, we ensured there was never a dull moment. 

A great event that the client felt was one of the best yet! An all round excellent day, with perfect sunshine, great activities and lots of positive feedback from all that attended. Overall the event left people feeling cherished and motivated with some lasting memories, as well as helping forge a strong relationship between us and Jagex.

Here’s to next year!!
