Past Events


 Company 100th Anniversary:

We worked with Draper Tools to create a company anniversary at the client’s workplace for the staff families and guests. 

The event took place at the client’s industrial warehouse and on hardstanding loading bays,  this meant we had to choose a range of fun activities and catering option that were suited to the unusual location and additional health and safety measures and work closely with the client’s and to deliver the event and work around the day to day working of the site. 

The event was a huge success and a fantastic summer’s day and 500 people had a great time.

Draper Tools is a family-owned and run business and in 2019 we were very proud to have reached our centenary year. The Draper family were keen to host an event to say thank you and celebrate with current and former staff as well as their families. We called on the services of Paul Foxley at Wessex Events to help us plan something special that staff would remember for years to come. We couldn’t be happier with how everything came together. The Draper Tools Family Fun Day was a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Paul’s knowledge and expertise in the events industry really came in handy and the attractions and entertainment he arranged for the occasion were all excellent. Every aspect of the planning, health & safety and security was taken into consideration and Paul and his team helped ensure events on the day ran smoothly. We couldn’t have pulled it off without Paul’s support and guidance – I have no hesitation in recommending Wessex Events.”
