Why the differentiation between 'Play' and 'Games' you might ask. What can Play offer that Games cannot, and how might I use it?

Play, while related to games, comprises more open-ended activities, often involving make-believe and the creation of new realities. Generally less structured and rule bound than games, it encourages problem solving, exploration and (self) discovery. As Stuart Brown, from the National Institute of Play, says, "Play leads to brain plasticity, adaptability and creativity. Nothing fires up the brain like play."

Play is not just for children, although we will be delighted to organise play events for birthday parties. Play can have practical 'grown-up' applications too. It is an ideal medium through which to explore themes like team building or leadership, or just as an alternative to the office party. The use of play can (and should) move beyond one-off events. A playful culture is a requirement if you want employees who display imagination and are able to innovate. Let us help you work {play) towards that ideal.

Play events can be as simple or as complex as you wish - requiring basic equipment and organisation or complex logistics, custom made kit and lots of staff.
