Gable Events Role
As well as providing a very successful and seamless it’s a knockout fun day, Gable Events arranged all of the side activities at Salesbury Hall, Preston to keep Senator staff and their invited guests entertained right through until midnight! These included large fairground rides such as Dodgems, a Carousel, Miami and Helter Skelter alongside smaller rides and attractions such as the Donkey Derby, Soccer Speed Test and traditional sidestalls like Hook a Duck, Tin Can Alley and Coconut Shy. All of the rides and inflatables were manned by trained and uniformed staff and prizes were provided where appropriate. A dedicated Gable Events Event Manager attended a site meeting in advance to plan the event and on the day to oversee the set-up and operations. This helped to ensure a smooth running event and that the client’s requirements were met. With our event expertise, it was no problem to re-configure the site map in response to the client’s last minute request to re-locate some of the rides.

Future Events
After a very successful it’s a knockout fun day in Preston, the client has again chosen Gable Events to organise and run their annual event. This year Senator International have opted for a Human Table Football tournament as the centrepiece with Gable Events given the task of providing both the main attraction and the supporting activities as in previous years.
