About This Project

The stately home and estate grounds of Cobham Hall were the chosen venue for this event, being both spacious and conveniently close to London.

The Carnival theme encapsulated a wide range of ideas and activities from Rio de Janeiro and Notting Hill to New Orleans’ Mardi Gras, via the magic and mystery of Witch Doctors and the elements of a Polynesian jungle.

Fun day maps guided guests through the themed zones to a myriad of entertainment and activities. Catering was in Tiki jungle huts decorated with elaborate carnival masks, swords and spears. Adzido Wah – the Carnival Witch Doctor set the scene for the roving entertainment – stilt walkers, exotic acrobats, limbo dancers, jugglers, magicians and fortune telling.

Children’s activities included a petting zoo, storytelling under the ancient oak tree, craft making and kite flying. For the adults there were hovercraft, quad bikes and reverse steer motorised vehicles, a unique 4-way tug of war, Thai cooking classes and three chill-out zones including shoulder and neck massages.

As evening fell 16,000 fairy lights sparkled above the dance floor and the Carnival continued as guests danced the night away under an exotic jungle canopy.

The client was delighted by the overwhelming response to the event from its employees, with hundreds of calls and emails to say how proud people were to work for the company, so for UBS the objectives of improving morale and loyalty were certainly achieved and exceeded its expectation.
