Events Organised offers Total Event Management for small-scale Family Fun Days as well as standalone activities and entertainment options if you plan to organise the event infrastructure yourself. Family Fun Days for up to 300 people are usually informal events with a village fete feel. They can feature anything from a small stage or tent for some music or entertainment, a BBQ or Hog Roast as well as a selection of fun activities such as Human Table Football, Segway Driving and Zorbing to keep guests and their families entertained for the duration of the event. We can organise anything from finding the perfect venue for your small-scale corporate family fun day, to organising the whole event from scratch to save you the hassle and worry of doing it yourself. We often provide entertainment and activities for smaller events where the infrastructure is already in place and the client wants our expert advice on what options would work well for their event. Please see below for considerations for Small-Scale Family Fun Days:
THE RIGHT VENUE
We believe that choosing the right venue for small-scale family fun days is just as important as large-scale events. With any size Family Fun Day, the main priorities for the venue are Suitability, Privacy and Safety. Please see below for more information:
The event site must be a flat or near flat area which is easily accessed with good parking facilities close to the event field so guests don't have to travel far from their vehicles. Venues that are ideal for small-scale family fun days include Football Clubs, Rugby Clubs and National Hunt Racecourses, as well as as small-medium sized stately homes, hotels and country house estates.
If you are planning on holding the event at a venue which shares its space with public visitors or paying guests such as a stately home, it's crucial that your event remains private for the duration so that members of the public don't roam onto your event site and enjoy your entertainment and food for free!
The other main consideration is ensuring that guests and their families are safe from the moment they arrive until the moment they go home. We cover security and health and safety management within our Total Event Management option. Please click here for more information.
THE RIGHT MIX
It is crucial to ensure that guests and their families are entertained sufficiently at family fun days. However, it is also important to make sure that you don't over-entertain people and give them too much to do so that they don't manage to get round to seeing everything. We are experts in Family Fun Day Entertainment so can help you get the right mix of acts and activities for your event.
Small-scale events probably don't need a huge stage for acts such as children's entertainers and live bands. Small outdoor stages or indoor stages inside a tent or marquee will have a far more intimate feel and will mean that guests will be able to enjoy the entertainment without it being too far away for them to enjoy. Musical Acts that work really well at small-scale family fun days Jazz Bands, Covers Bands and Acoustic Acts. Entertainment in the form of Children's Entertainers, Magicians, Face Painters and Caricaturists also work really well. A small arena is also a nice idea for Animal Displays such as Falconry, Dog Display Teams and Gundog Handling.
Activities which are suitable for small-scale corporate family fun days don't generally vary from those suitable for larger-scale events, you just won't need as many of them for your event. Bouncy Castles, Human Table Football, Segway Driving, Laser Clay Shooting and Zorbing are all fun options that could be considered for your event. Click here for more info.
