Theme Ideas for Corporate Events and Away Days in Cheshire and Manchester

Friday, July 12th, 2013





Watching the wheel spinning

We were recently treated to a great example of how NOT to plan a corporate event, courtesy of the BBC’s The Apprentice. The episode’s most cringe-worthy moments included some sumo wrestling entertainment, complete with ‘fat suits’ at Team Endeavour’s army-themed event and a spot of tipsy wine tasting at Team Evolve’s school-themed event.

If watching that didn’t put you off planning your corporate event entirely, we have some great ideas for planning your next company away day or event in Cheshire or Manchester.

Themed away days can be a great success when they are done right. We’ve had experience providing entertainment and presentations at many corporate events so here’s our insight on what works well for an entertaining and worthwhile even for your team members:

Awards Ceremony

An awards ceremony always goes down a treat at corporate events in Manchester. You can theme a whole evening around an awards ceremony, complete with black tie dress code, drinks and canapés, or simply include a small awards ceremony as part of your staff away day.

Recognizing your staff for their input is a great way to improve staff morale and motivation. Our video jukebox system is just perfect for this, allowing you to produce an Oscars-style presentation complete with music and photographs of your team members.

Check out an example of our awards videos here.

Casino or Las Vegas Theme

Casino themes are also very popular for corporate parties and events. Recreating the glitz and glamour of a Las Vegas casino will be sure to result in an event that your employees will be talking about for weeks and is great for improving team building and staff camaraderie.

Check out an example video for a casino-themed event here.

James Bond Themed Event

The Bond theme is another great idea that goes down a storm at staff parties and makes for a fun and memorable corporate event. Some ideas to include are stunt shows, Bond showgirls and themed music entertainment. You can even hire a Sean Connery or Bond villain lookalike for your event!

You can watch an example of one of our James Bond themed Video DJ presentations here.

Whether you’re planning a wedding reception, prom, party or corporate event, our Video Jukebox system will help you to create a night to remember. Turn your special event into a true audio-visual experience with our double projector screen system.

What is Video Jukebox?

Video Jukebox is a double projector screen system that can be used with music videos or specially produced exclusive videos to create a really special experience that will be hard to forget.

You can choose from the Floorfillas music video library, which offers a wide selection of videos ranging from pop hits to RnB or classic rock; or choose your own playlist for any style of music you prefer.

Video Jukebox isn’t just a system for playing music videos. To add an extra special touch to your event or party, we can create a special presentation from your own photographs and video clips, ideal for weddings, corporate events, fashion shows and themed parties.

Video Jukebox for weddings


To create an extra special wedding reception that both you and your guests are sure to remember, use our bespoke video creation service to create a video that tells the love story between you and your partner.

Our photo slideshows are also a great way to showcase photos from your wedding if you were married abroad or there are guests at your wedding party who weren’t able to attend the ceremony.

Video Jukebox for themed parties


Our video projection service is very popular for birthdays and anniversaries. Baby photos and even slightly embarrassing photos from years gone by are always a great talking point and help to get your guests laughing and in the party spirit.

Themed parties are becoming increasingly popular and Video Jukebox can add some extra authenticity to your James Bond themed, beach themed, or casino style party.

Video Jukebox for corporate events


Our video production service is ideal for creating presentations for your award ceremony or corporate events. We can include photos and video clips of your team members along with graphics and music to create a stunning production that is unique and inspiring.

The price is £650, for events in Manchester and Cheshire with a start time of 7-8pm and a DJ set finish time of 12am. The price also includes a light show and a high quality PA system.
