Softcat Summer Celebration
As a leading national provider of IT technology solutions, Softcat stage regular staff engagement events to celebrate their business successes. This year, Lemoncake was asked to take a different approach to their usual Festival-style open-air summer event.
By sourcing a local Manchester venue, we were able to divert budget from staff-transportation into the event itself, so with Victoria Warehouse as a suitably unusual venue, we created a party atmosphere utilising the characterful, post-industrial basement suites.
We installed a 5-piece live Karaoke band as the centre-piece – supplemented by additional entertainment including beer-pong, selfie mirror, free bars, a selection of street-food and inflatable props to create a well-received party atmosphere.
Alongside the live music, we also incorporated Softcat’s own in-house DJ, who shared the stage with our live band to provide a two-hour late-night clubbing set, with a steady flow of singers and dancers keeping up the party pace.
Softcat’s new events team were delighted with our involvement and we’re looking forward to bringing more expertise to bear on future events with them.
