With the summer season only around the corner, as a business, you’re likely already gearing up to plan a memorable corporate summer party.
Considering that ‘79% of employees [look] forward to building connections with their coworkers in person through these types of company events the most’, it’s no surprise that an increasing number of businesses are choosing to host corporate parties for a number of occasions.
However, when it comes to planning any work event, it can be challenging to find ways to adapt and make your corporate events fun. That said, if you’re looking for entertainment options for your upcoming corporate summer party, you’re in the right place.
Corporate summer party entertainment ideas include, but are not limited to:
- Musicians and performers
- Scavenger hunt
- Group games
- Mixology class
- Fun fair
1. Musicians & Performers
No party is complete without music, so it makes sense that one of the best entertainment ideas for a corporate summer party is to hire musicians and performers.
Music is essential for building an atmosphere at your summer party and is important to carry the positive energy through the entire event. After all, who can be in a bad mood when there’s good music playing?
Our events team at Urban Food Fest are able to curate entire corporate and private events with a range of musicians and performers.
The musicians and performers we offer for hire range from rock bands, singers, show bands and DJs to circus performers, stilt walkers as well as magicians.
So, whether you’re interested in hiring musicians, DJs, singers or something more unique, our team can help anywhere across the UK, no matter where you’re hosting your corporate summer party.
2. Scavenger Hunt
Another fun entertainment idea for a corporate summer party is to incorporate a scavenger hunt into the day.
For individuals who aren’t aware of the concept, a scavenger hunt is a type of game in ‘which the players — either individuals or teams — compete to see who can obtain the most items from a list’.
From finding certain flowers to taking pictures of specific animals, you can be as creative as you like when creating the outdoor scavenger hunt checklist depending on the location you intend to host your corporate summer party.
Not only is a scavenger hunt an excellent team-building exercise, but it also gives people from different teams and departments the opportunity to network and mingle together.
By offering prizes for the scavenger hunt, you also provide your employees with an incentive to take part and have fun.
3. Group Games
Another great entertainment idea for a corporate summer party is group games.
Corporate parties don’t need to be stuffy events that people dread attending, and group games are the perfect way to get people of all ages involved.
In addition to this, group games are ideal for stoking some friendly competition between colleagues and transporting you back to a simpler time, especially when they’re played outdoors amongst friends.
At Urban Food Fest, we have a range of party games for hire, including giant Connect 4, giant Jenga, and Croquet, as well as fun fair games and stalls to ensure your attendees have enough variety to have fun the whole day.
4. Mixology Class
A memorable entertainment idea for your corporate event is to include a mixology class.
Mixology is the ‘skill of inventing, preparing, and serving mixed drinks, or cocktails’, and is the perfect opportunity to let your employee’s creative juices flow.
Offering a mixology class provides guests with a creative experience that is not only entertaining but also educational, allowing them to learn something new and create unique drinks that they can put their own spin on.
By providing something different like a mixology class, your corporate summer party is more likely to remain a memorable experience for attendees in more ways than one.
5. Fun Fair
Lastly, a unique entertainment idea that is sure to transport participants back in time is to hire a fun fair.
Nostalgia is one of the strongest emotions we can feel, and a fun fair is great for brightening the atmosphere of your event, especially if there’s an unpredictable British summertime downpour on the day.
By hiring a fun fair, then, you’ll be able to transform a standard corporate event into a special summer party that no one is likely to forget, come rain or shine.
At Urban Food Fest, our team is well versed in providing party entertainment, including everything from coconut shys to fun fair rides, face painters to bouncy castles, lucky dips to inflatable rides, as well as circus performers.
