THE ART OF ENTERTAINMENT
THE BIGGER PICTURE
Creating art on a massive scale the group is challenged to make an over-sized reproduction of a well -known painting. Guests will be split into teams, with each completing one part of the final artwork, working together to collect inspiration and materials. Artistic talent is not required as there are many different roles to be filled. Teams will complete a series of challenges as part of the overall project testing both their mental and visual abilities, as well as their engineering skills. At the end of the session the individual pieces are joined together to recreate the masterpiece. Participants become aware of the ‘bigger picture’ rather than purely focusing on individual tasks, demonstrating that teamwork gets
better results than working alone.
TREASURE OR TOSH?
Like ‘Antiques Road Show’ but with a twist, guests will enter a room filled with a variety of collectables and will be
challenged to determine which ones are valuable antiques and which are car boot classics. With items from the elegant to the bizarre, budding antique dealers will be encouraged to inspect each piece to estimate its value and guess its provenance. An expert will be on hand to confirm or refute the participants’ assessments. It’s a fun and sophisticated icebreaker and an ideal accompaniment to pre-dinner drinks.
