At the Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre we also encourage fun and offer alternative ways for your meeting delegates to get to know each other and relax.
Whole- or part-day events
If you’d like to hold a team-building activity at the Conference Centre we can recommend Gable Events, with whom we have worked for several years.
Gable Events provides imaginative and quality corporate events with a long list of activities, games, classes, workshops, themes, challenges and experiences for you to choose from. These are some of their most popular activities (a full list can be found on their website):
- Indoor team challenges: e.g. Team Tasks and Apprentice, Art, and Chocolate-making Challenges
- Outdoor events: e.g. Fun Days, It’s a Knockout, Krypton Maze, Medieval Days, Multi-activity/Sporting/Country Days, School Sports, Treasure Hunts
- Evening entertainment: e.g. casino evenings, murder mysteries, pub games, quizzes, race nights, Scalextric, side stalls and simulators
We are happy to advise which are the most suitable events for our venue and to book these for you. Conference Centre clients are welcome to use other providers if they prefer, but need to inform our team so that the necessary health and safety and public liability checks can be done.
Private Film Nights
Why not turn our 300-seat state-of-the-art auditorium into a private cinema for your guests? With a great sound system, HD video projection, comfy seating, and thousands of movies to choose from, the auditorium can be transformed for the evening. We’ll even open the bar and have traditional cinema snacks and ice-cream tubs on sale!
Cocktail events and Spirit tasting
Looking to add a unique drinks reception or team-building session to your event? Working alongside Ace Bar Events we are excited to be able to offer two genome-inspired, engaging cocktail experiences, as well as a spirit tasting masterclass for groups of 10-300 people.
- Cocktail receptions: Choose two or three of your favourite cocktails from our bespoke Tree of Life and Science Lab menus and treat your delegates to a more exciting drinks reception.
- Mixology and flair bar-tending: Starting with cocktails on arrival, Ace Bar Events will show off their flair at bar-tending skills with an impressive mixology demo before handing over to your delegate teams to learn the ropes. The event will be designed to suit your group, and can comprise speed, creativity and flair rounds, and end in mix-off and prize giving!
