Wasing Park weekend showcase

Over 40 agency guests attended an April corporate showcase weekend at Wasing Park near Aldermaston in Berkshire.

The weekend got going with a cocktail treasure hunt at the Secret Walled Garden, followed by Wild Cooking in the woods and some Segway Trails.

Guests also got to explore the lakes on bikes and on Gators before lunch at The Stables courtyard, designed to show what can be done on the teambuilding side, using the 18th century parkland estate to the full.

There was a master class in curing and salami making, while the new conference centre was open for yoga, and dinner showed off the Castle Barn.

The owner, Joshua Dugdale, has invested £3.7 m in facilities for meetings and events and in the estate’s 26 bedrooms.

Dugdale tells CN: “We have already made tremendous progress towards the aim of being the ultimate country venue for holding events, but the coming years will see advances made in bringing together different elements of the country estate, both in agriculture and in community, and how we can relate that to our events going forward.

“Food is incredibly important to the event experience and we are looking at how we can both produce and deliver the ultimate finished product to the consumer. It is about creating the best backdrop, experience and surroundings to provoke all the senses for the people who come and experience our famous Wasing hospitality.”
