Roald Dahl Children’s Competition Event for Persil

One lucky child would win… a day in the wonderful world of Roald Dahl

When we were told about this project, everyone in the office was extremely excited….not only a super cool children’s competition event for us to staff and manage, but also based around one of our favourite children’s authors, Roald Dahl! Persil were running a competition with the most amazing prize, a day in the wonderful world of Roald Dahl. And who better to bring that magical world to life on the day than the staff of “Kids’ People?!”

We contacted our huge database of children’s specialists who would bring the day to life

After a brainstorming session with the client, where we shared our children’s expertise of the best and most fun children’s games and activities, we contacted our huge database of children’s specialists to book them as “Animators” literally to bring the magical day to life for the children. The day was set in the most beautiful country house in a very rural location with a stunning garden. We helped set up the game zones, the Wish Tree, Alligator Limbo, Esiotrot Hop, Mr Foxes tunnel, Willy Wonka parachute, Witches brew treasure hunt, and Spiker and Sponges Peach chase. The day was dreamlike, starting with heavy clouds and what looked like rain that would spoil the garden challenges, then the clouds blew away and the sun shone all day!

The day was set in the most beautiful country house in a very rural location with a stunning garden. We helped set up the game zones, the Wish Tree, Alligator Limbo, Esiotrot Hop, Mr Foxes tunnel, Willy Wonka parachute, Witches brew treasure hunt, and Spiker and Sponges Peach chase. The day was dreamlike, starting with heavy clouds and what looked like rain that would spoil the garden challenges, then the clouds blew away and the sun shone all day!

We supplied a team of 12 great children’s staff… and professional actors too

We didn’t only supply a team of 10 Animators, a manager and an assistant manager to coordinate, but also professional actors to play characters from the world-famous story books. We supplied a Granny, a Witch, a Headmaster, a School Girl and the compere for the day, Roger Sidebottom! With their professional costumes and make up they really looked the part. Our actors were not only professionally accredited actors from the West End and TV, they were also picked as they were of course fantastic with children. The day was incredible, and the client was delighted with the diligent and extremely high calibre of the staff, who made the day a complete success.

Massive thank you for all of your help with the Persil event, overall it was a great success and the client is thrilled! The animators and actors were wonderful, and really brought the event to life, do please pass on our thanks, I wouldn’t hesitate to use any of them again on future events, or in recommending them for other activities.
