ICE breaking Games
Although we expect lots of children present, a Christening or similar events, are really an adult celebration. Therefore, we don't plan to do children specific games or play children's party songs (unless clearly specified by the client). We will however, work hard to ensure that your event is less of simple gathering and more of a memorable occasion with guests coming together for fun and friendship. Our Ice breaking games are based on the Victorian Parlour Games of the late 19th century so are simply fun, wholesome and contain an air of elegance. An example would be -
Reverend Crawley's game This game provides gentle exercise, enforced intimacy, and ultimately has the effect of a conjuring trick, so there really isn't much to be said against it and everybody should give it a go - trust us.
You need at least seven or eight players, preferably more. You all stand in a circle and link hands - but not with the people on either side of you, and not both hands with the same person. This has the effect of turning the group into a huge human knot, and your joint task is to untie it. You work together to step over each other, crawl under people's arms, climb through gaps, and so on - all without letting go of the hands you're holding.
The outcome is truly bizarre and counter-intuitive: the knot virtually always unties into a single ring of people holding hands in a circle (or, occasionally, two interlinked rings).
Parents & God Parent Speeches
Becoming a parent or even being chosen to be a God parent or similar is a real privilege that we think gets overlooked these days. What better way to inform your group of family and friends of your delight and intentions for the future than a well hosted short speech. Our professional hosts are there to gather attention, announce your speech and even offer help and support for those a little nervous with public speaking.
