You want a meeting or a client event. But not in a hotel. You want somewhere different. But you don't want to pay the earth for it.
We come across some little gems from time to time and one such occasion was last week when we helped a client with a launch event. The venue was the Observatory Science Centre in Herstmonceux, East Sussex.
The Observatory Science Centre opened in April 1995, in the grounds of the former Royal Observatory. The domes, buildings and telescopes are still in place and the Centre is now a major family visitor attraction. The renovated telescopes provide a great backdrop for meetings and events.
On the night of our event, we were treated to a perfect view of Saturn on a glorious, clear night. The formal part of the meeting was actually held in one of the telescope domes and, following drinks and food, guests were invited to star gaze, accompanied by astronomy experts, using two of the giant telescopes. There are also dozens of hands-on science exhibits which kept guests entertained and amused!
The Science Centre is a great, cost-effective venue for private meetings of up to 50 although larger groups can also be accommodated by arrangement. There are plenty of facilities for team building - both indoor and outdoor - with bags of potential for interactive team challenges or science based activity workshops.
Service from an enthusiastic team of staff and volunteers make this a venue well worth considering.
We have a range of team building and client/staff entertainment ideas which are ideally suited to Herstmonceux – and if you'd like more information on using Herstmonceux - or any of a number of other unusual venues – why not contact Nice Work? http://www.nice-work.org.uk/contact_us.html
