Procurement Leaders

The Summer Retreat for Procurement Leaders brought The I Do Festivals crew to one of our newest and most exciting venues - Henhaw Farm in glorious Surrey!


The delegates were greeted by the smiling faces of our team, who ferried their luggage into their luxury bell tent accommodation, all while ushering them inside for lovely warm welcome drinks to kick them off for a day of ice breakers and presentations…


A much needed break was then taken by our guests, ready to indulge in our famous Spanish Paella - all that hard work meant the carbs were obligatory, even more so to power them through the rest of the day’s activities and of course, so they were prepped to party the night away with us!




After the day of conferencing, our guests treated themselves to some time to refresh themselves ready for their dinner and a fun filled night ahead! The first act of the night RemedySounds, opened his set while all our hungry guests were tucking into their scrumptious Hog Roast – obviously served with all the trimmings, we’d never forget the crackling!


After getting down to RemedySounds, one of our fave acts The Smiley Campbell Band stormed the stage to perform some of their awesome modern chart covers for the crowds! 

Our lovely guests from Procurement Leaders were then treated to their first serving of our delicious cones of chips – keeping hungry stomachs at bay is what we do! They could even sit and enjoy our toasty warm fire pits as well, soaking in the atmosphere of the night!




Of course it wouldn’t be an I Do Festivals summer party without the legendary silent disco to keep the party going strong…  The tunes were flowing, shapes were being thrown and some muscles were definitely being pulled! Cue the second serving of our chips to sooth the pain (and embarrassment!) 2am rolled around quick and they did NOT want the party to end, but we ensured they were all tucked into bed; ready and raring to go for the sports day in the morning…

Our guests gladly filled up on the Full English Breakfast Baps to start them off, particularly after a night of heavy partying! We knew this would also give them the burst of energy needed in order to partake in the ultimate sports day we had planned for them.

Guests had to compete in 7 events throughout the morning in their teams, these were:

- Walk the Plank

- Ski slalom

- Surf simulator

- Egg and Spoon Race

- Sac Race

- Bean Bag Race

- Space Hopper Race


The teams then had to fight it out in a Sumo Suit battle – making for some hilarious memories we’re sure! Moving on to the Tug of War, where true team spirit and strength prevailed…




The Grand Finale of the Procurement Leaders Sports Day 2017 was a test of agility, speed and stamina – our ultimate Assault Course! Every single guest had to relay race through the course, underneath scramble nets, through the giant mangles and down the slides! The Sports Day ended with the winner being announced and awards being given - Best Sports Person and Biggest Gaff of the day!

All in all, the Summer Retreat was a true hit! Thank you so much to Procurement Leaders for being such good sports and well done to the White Stripes for winning the sports day!

See you again soon, Henhaw!
