Why family fun days make great corporate events

Corporate events don’t have to be formal events full of stuffed shirts and boring speeches if you don’t want them to be. Our latest guide examines why family fun days make great corporate events that can be enjoyed by every generation.

What is a corporate family fun day?

As its name suggests, a corporate family fun day is family-friendly event that is organised at company level, usually for employees and their families. The day will include fun activities for all ages, with food and drink and entertainment. A family fun day can take place in the afternoon and can also extend into the evening.

Reasons to organise a corporate family fun day

Businesses are turning more and more to whole company fun days that include staff families, for many reasons. They are a great way to thank your team for working hard (perhaps their hard work has resulted in a lucrative new contract for you) and they are a great incentive to employees – staff that feel valued and whose families are included in workplace events will be hard working and loyal.

In these days when employees have a duty of care towards the mental wellbeing of their staff and when corporations are keenly aware of their social responsibilities, a family fun day is a great way to fulfill these obligations while having fun!

Family fun day activities

Providing activities for a wide range of ages and abilities requires careful planning and at The ALS Group, we have over 30 years’ experience in providing fun-packed activities that everyone can enjoy. Here are some of our recommendations:

Bouncy castle hire

Who doesn’t love a bouncy castle? And at The ALS Group we have adult bouncy castles as well as children’s bouncy castles that let little ones bounce away safely, to their hearts’ content. Our range of inflatables doesn’t stop there though and all inflatables are PIPA tagged for safety and are delivered fully insured for public liability.

Funfair games and stalls

Nothing speaks to family fun more than a selection of traditional funfair games and stalls. Our fairground stalls include pop-up stalls and side stalls with family favourites Tin Can Alley, Hook a Duck, Coconut Shy and many more.

Face painting

Why not have an experienced face painter on hand to create butterflies, pirates, lions and tigers, or even your favourite superhero? All our face painters hold a current DBS, enabling them to work with children and young people and they are all polite, friendly and well-presented.

To keep everyone happy after all the activities, no family fun day would be complete without a choice of food and drink!

Family fun day food ideas

To go with your funfair stalls, why not offer a choice of fun foods with smells and tastes that will transport older members of staff back to their own childhoods. Whether you want candy floss, popcorn, hot doughnuts or something else, we can help. Street food is always popular at fun days too, as it allows guests to wander round the activities while eating. We offer a wide choice of street food stalls, as well as traditional fish and chips and hog roasts!
