What we’ve done in Themed Events

Zendesk Summer Party, July 2015

We were delighted to work with Zendesk on this staff event. We were involved in making the fun happen with a range of outdoor games and inflatable attractions too.

This event was held in the Radisson Blu, St. Helen's Hotel, with Gotcha Covered looking after the majority of elements. They produced a beautiful-looking event in already beautiful surroundings. 

We were brought in by Zendesk to provide the fun stuff on the day.

Claire and all the folk at Zendesk were great to deal with. The weather played ball and the day was a massive success.

What we did

We've been doing an awful lot of family fun events this year and Claire in Zendesk approached us to bring that element to their staff event. 

  • Outdoor Games
    • Provision of games package options
    • Advice in relation to package options
    • Provision of games (shocker!)
  • Inflatables
    • Sourcing of reputable supplier
    • Collation of safety paperwork
    • Supervision of supplier activity
  • Staffing
    • Provision of 1 x Event Manager
    • Arrangement of 2 x inflatables supervisors
  • Budget Management
    • Provision of a variety of options, in budget
    • Negotiation with suppliers
    • Meeting budget target

The general gist of it

  • 2 fun inflatables
  • lots of bendy limbs
  • loads of great food
  • around 50 Jenga blocks
  • 1 tasty cake
  • some really petty gazebos

Why we loved this one

This was a fun one to be involved in. 

Gotcha Covered put a really good event together and we enjoyed being a part of it.

It's always enjoyable when we can work alongside another event management company to build something really good for a client. 

Some of the challenges

Zendesk had a set budget for the elements they wanted us to look after.

It was a challenge to get as much as we could in for the budget and ensure that everyone had an opportunity to get in on the fun. 

We were able to make it happen and enjoyed the challenge immensely. 

happy client says

'I contacted Cuckoo Events to see if they could help me plan some fun and games for our company summer party. On the day we had awesome inflatables and lawn games. Staff had so much fun! The Cuckoo Team were enthusiastic and professional and everything ran so smoothly on the day.'
