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!
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.

One of our specialties is holding unique corporate events.
The park can be opened for your pleasure. This takes place either on weekdays during school term time or during the evenings after closing time to the general public.

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!
Comfortable & suitable clothing – This is very important to remember, we do not want you to have huge dry-cleaning bills for all that sharp business attire.
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!
