Unique Corporate Events - Diggerland's Spindizzy

Choosing your unique corporate events?

Finding unique corporate events can be a difficult affair and now imagine you’re sitting in a meeting and the boss is discussing just that.

One member of the office suggests dinner, another a hotel, then the boss’s steely gaze focuses on you.

Your mind then clouds over.

 

If this all sounds too familiar?

Then read on!

Never fear, your wait is over, Diggerland can do it!

 

Here’s a rundown for our unique corporate events you can book!

We do Dumper Racing!

What’s that I hear you ask?

Picture this, so you arrive at Diggerland and before you stands mighty JCB ROBOT skidsteer loaders.

These awesome machines are yours for the day.

Whether you skid, dart or slide your way through our specially designed course is down to you.

Yet beware, there are time penalties, so get competitive but please remember do not attempt any Mad Max stunts, we do not have a Thunderdome!

So you want more racing? Yes, we have more of that.

The Digger Race!

These are the kings of the construction world, they’re the backbone of any building site, they are the incredible 8.5 tonne JCB-3CX and yes, you’re about to race them!

The line is set, your boss  is in the JCB to the left and your assistant is in the one on the right, the engines rev and off you go. Tearing down our uniquely designed course, you now realise one thing, these things aren’t for the faint of heart at top speed. Yet, you smirk as your boss and assistant are just distant specks in your mirror.

Whatever the weather!

Come rain or shine, we will continue to operate. Unless the weather is so severe that no man nor beast would venture out in it.

We do however recommend bringing certain items for you and your team!

Wellington boots/work boots – We don’t want you to be under any false pretenses, it can get a little muddy, so would advise that comfortable and durable footwear is a must!

Waterproofs – You’ll be in an environment where you’ll be having lots of fun outdoors. As we all know, Diggerland is based in the UK, so it’s possible that at some point rain will be forecast!

Little Tikes Performance Day at Diggerland!

Little Tikes Performance day - Duggy and Dotty playing with the little tikes toys

 

If you speak to anyone of about 30 years old or younger, ask them about a particular red & yellow plastic car. Some may tell the tale of them appearing on birthdays, others may say Christmas. Yet, the story you may notice will always be, “Oh yes, I remember those, I had one and I loved it”. The Little Tikes red & yellow cozy coupe was surely an iconic toy of many a childhood. The company Little Tikes, who created those wonderful toys, continues to keep creating new memories for a new generation.

The fantastic partnership between Diggerland and Little Tikes began in April 2017. Unique play zones opened up first at the Diggerland parks in Kent and Devon, with Durham and Yorkshire following shortly after in July.

Little Tikes areas have been affectionately named as `Wheelz Play Zones`. As such all 4 zones have been set up for little ones under the age of 5 to enjoy.

From the popular sand and water tables through to playable versions of dumper trucks and diggers. Children will get to discover first hand much more about the world around them, in an interactive and fun-fueled play environment.

 

What’s the big news all about?

On Saturday 21st October, Diggerland and Little Tikes will present the ‘Little Tikes Performance Day’!

This is a day for you (the parents) to come and relax! Let the Little Tikes reps introduce your little ones to the very same nostalgic toys you once enjoyed, during your childhood years.  The reps will also bring along some wonderful new toys for your children to enjoy, from their exciting new ranges. These include the fantastic RC Tyre Twister and the fabulous My First Flyer.

 

Children can take on the RC Tyre Twister…

Family Days out at National Treasures: How well Do You Know the UK?

The school holidays might be over for now, but half term will be around all too soon. If you’re fresh out of ideas of how to entertain your family, why not check out some of these ideas for great family days out? The British Isles are home to much weird and wonderful history, and there are many modern marvels too, paying tribute to icons of British engineering, invention and design. What do you think are the national treasures of the UK, and how much do you know about them? Have you visited any of these before – or will they be next on your list for adventure?

In ancient times

Take a trip back to the prehistory to see some of Britain’s oldest national treasures. These ancient monuments have stood for thousands of years, leaving traces of a past which will enchant and enthrall the whole family.

Did you know?

  • Stonehenge is a great family day out – nearly one million people each year certainly think so! Quite special for a circle of giant rocks, but then it is over 5,000 years old and lines up with the sun on solstices.
  • One of the biggest Roman legacies in the UK is Hadrian’s Wall. It is 73 miles long and runs across Northumberland and Cumbria as a defence against the north. It’s hard to believe it was built without the modern machinery we use today – which you can check out on family days out at Diggerland Durham, only an hour away.

Knights and shining armour

The medieval period was a busy one for Britain. Wars, plagues, trade, triumphs and catastrophes have left their mark on the UK in the form of castles, churches, and many more exciting attractions all round the country – making a great day out for all the family.

Did you know?

  • Windsor Castle – home of the the Queen – is the oldest and largest castle in the world still inhabited. It was started in 1070, and took 16 years to build – although there have been a few alterations since then.
  • York Minster is one of the world’s largest cathedrals and took over 250 years to build. How long do you think it would take today? The machines at Diggerland Yorkshire might help you to find out.

Moving with the times

Beautiful buildings and innovative icons from the modern era can also be found in every corner of the UK. Exploring your hometown can be as exciting as travelling further afield, especially when you find out something you didn’t know.

Did you know?

  • Big Ben is not the name of the clock tower next to the Houses of Parliament – the name refers to one of the bells inside, which weighs 13.5 tonnes and first rung in 1859.
  • The Angel of the North graces the skyline near the A1 at Newcastle. It is 20 metres tall and has a wingspan of 54 metres.

The natural choice

The UK’s natural landscape is also a real treasure for the nation. From rolling fields and quiet rivers in the south to wild moorland and soaring peaks in the north, there’s plenty for your family to explore wherever you are.

Did you know?

  • Loch Ness is one of the longest and deepest lochs and a great favourite with outdoor enthusiasts – but is perhaps best known for being the home of Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster, of whom there has been over 3000 sightings since 1933. Take some binoculars and have a go at spotting her yourself!
  • Of the 16 main lakes in the Lake District, only one is officially a “lake” – Bassenthwaite Lake – whereas the others are all ‘waters’ or ‘meres’, like Windermere, the longest lake in England at 10.5 miles.

How many of these facts did you know? Where do you want to go next on your family days out? Keep exploring and discovering these places – and many more – for yourself.
