Wicksteed Park is set to launch itself as a venue for corporate away days, team building and conferences.

This follows the refurbishment of its elegant Edwardian pavilion and the restoration of its lake.

The Kettering park was founded by Charles Wicksteed, the inventor of the modern day slide and swing, more than 90 years ago.

The pavilion has just undergone a major refurbishment including the sensitive restoration of its original Edwardian features.

The venue caters for up to a maximum of 1,000 delegates – but can also cater for smaller events.

The new venture, run in association with national business development company Unlimited Potential, will offer a range of activities and facilities, including development days for between 10 and 1,500 delegates.

Trips out to the rides and facilities around the park would be available.

There are also plans for company away days and team building sessions using park facilities and activities such as orienteering, canoeing, archery or the Rush zip wire.

Other activities on offer will include team development, public workshops and corporate social responsibility sessions.

Park managing director Alasdair McNee said: “The park is a great venue for corporate events ranging from team building on our rides and attractions to canoeing on the lake or more formal meetings and conferences.”
