News // 19.08.2022

What actually makes an activity fun for everyone on the team? And is there really a corporate event that can leave a lasting impression for all the right reasons? In this day and age, it can be extremely difficult to host a corporate event that people will enjoy, with the days of dining halls and rubbish buffets very firmly behind us.Below we share our top 5 quirky corporate evening event ideas and a few tips on how and when to book your next team social.

So here goes…

1. Game Show Night

The perfect way to get people involved and to ensure different departments engage in conversation is to put on a game show-themed event. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, sometimes the old nostalgic themes are the best to bring out everyone’s inner child, getting people engaged in the game.

Although, think Wheel of Fortune, Mastermind, and Deal or No Deal, not Love Island. 

You can either set up different games or teams for staff to compete in or have a general free-for-all game show night, showing the competitive nature of the office. May the best man win!

2. Tough Mudder

A real test of character, combining food trucks, coffee, and awesome tunes, a Tough Mudder is certainly one of the more ‘outside of the box’ corporate evening event ideas for you to consider.

I mean, who wouldn’t want to run 12 miles through 500,000 Litres of mud while completing an obstacle course? It’s for charity, so why not?

So, if you’re asking yourself, ‘How can I make my event more fun?’ This could be the ticket to reveal the real office hero!

3. Lip Sync Battle Corporate Style

Forget listening to the HR Manager sing Cher two hertz out of pitch, lip sync battles combine the best of both worlds, getting to see your colleagues embarrass themselves but with the symphonies of people who can actually sing.

A lip-sync battle is always a lot of fun. You can either have employees compete against each other or do teams. All you need is a mic. 

P.S. Who knew Tom from HR was a Cher fan?

4. Potluck Lunch

A potluck lunch is a great way for employees to get to know each other better, with each employee bringing in a dish to share with everyone, sharing different cuisines and any weird food combos!

Fingers crossed no-one gets ill!

5. Axe throwing
