Work Hard, Play Hard

Work Hard, Play Hard

Long gone are the times when attending a business conference was all work and no play. Here at Donnington Valley we pride ourselves on being able to offer a little something different.

Many companies now use an external meeting to achieve two goals. Firstly to create a working environment away from the day to day hustle and bustle of the office to allow themselves to gain some perspective on a new project or venture. And secondly to combine that with a team building experience.

Now team building events have moved away from the activities of falling back with colleagues to catch you to gain trust to being much more about sharing an experience together and perhaps learning a new skill.

Being an independently owned hotel with an award winning wine list, naturally our most popular activity is, wine tasting. Our specially trained sommeliers can create an event to suit and include an educational spin or perhaps add a little competitive edge allowing you to test your wine knowledge and palate. The wine tasting events can be tailor made to suit any size of group and are available for almost any budget.

For those looking to add a touch of excitement to a meeting or conference, or for those who have more time we can also help arrange a wide variety of outdoor activities. Now I can’t guarantee that one possible activity, duck herding, will be of essential use back in the office but it will certainly be a talking point. If that doesn’t appeal perhaps motorized sports, a days golfing, chocolate making or clay pigeon shooting might be more the order of the day.

For more information on how we can help to meet your business and conferencing needs please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the events team and we’ll help you to create a truly memorable event.
