Event Outline

After a warm welcome from your event host the group will quickly be divided in to teams, each team will be given a briefing by the host and ushered to their designated rehearsal area with access to “the wardrobe” (a costume area which will have hats wigs, and accessories), a mini market and pantry stocked with fresh and dried goods. Also featuring an equipment zone with all the cookery equipment they will need, for the live show later.

Going live! While teams work on their presentations and prepare food for the demonstration, we will set up a studio with a modern contemporary look, each team will be expected to produce a live 5 minute cookery clip which will have to include a short demonstration and audience participation. The team mates who do not wish to be involved in the live aspect of the activity can simply sit down and enjoy the show!

If desired, we can arrange a cameraman to film and edit the presentations which we will send to the office within 7 working days; a fantastic memento of the day with lots of fun moments to remember your team day.We highly recommend the filming but please note it comes at additional cost to the activity POA
