Entertainment Ideas for Staff Canteens and Warehouses
You’ve got a space to use, a large room or open area.
It might not be posh, but it works and you can gather the whole team. Perhaps you have a lot of tradies and store staff. You need an idea that everyone can have fun with.
What can you do there besides drink and eat?
1 Transform the space.
Decorations are great, but lighting can really change things up. Ditch the fluorescents and use table lamps and lamp stands. You can get Lighting gels cheaply which can turn a white work light into an amazing coloured effect. (Get proper gels that won’t mind warming up). If you book Gerard V he can usually bring lights, but also gels are cheap on eBay if you want to pick some up for other purposes.
2 Invite Family
Every workplace changes when staff bring their partners. And sometimes you can even bring the kids. (Saves on babysitters too).
3 Arrange a Show - Fun Entertainment
Stage an event for everyone to watch and enjoy, with optional participation.
- Party games
- A comic
- A Comedy Hypnotist (like me: Comedy Hypnotist Gerard V)
A show engages the whole group, it takes the focus off work, and it stops people drinking too much. It gives people a reason to attend!
Do everyone a favour and book some entertainment. Make it fun. Make it special. Make it memorable.
