Wicksteed Park is a unique and fantastic venue for corporate away days, team building and conferences.
Set in 147 acres of parkland, it offers an ideal location for those wanting to get away from the office and combine business-related events with having some fun.
The Kettering park was founded by Charles Wicksteed, the inventor of the modern day slide and swing, more than 90 years ago.
Its majestic Edwardian pavilion has just undergone a major refurbishment including the sensitive restoration of its original Edwardian features.
The venue caters for up to a maximum of 1,000 delegates – but can also cater for smaller events, offering a range of activities and facilities, including development days.
Company away days and team building sessions can utilise park rides and facilities and the team at Wicksteed Park can create a bespoke package to suit businesses of all sizes.
They work with a selection of outdoor and indoor pursuits companies, who are able to tailor an event to exact requirements.
Park managing director Alasdair McNee said: “The park is a great venue for corporate events ranging from team building on our rides and attractions to canoeing on the lake or more formal meetings and conferences.”
