[Scottish accent] TLG, you will go on my first whistle...
This September, we will be battling it out for the champions' crown (and a bottle of bubbly) as we experience the glory of the classic TV game show Gladiator for ourselves! Whether you see yourself as the fearful Wolf, or the glamorous Jet, there will be a mix of team-based games for all abilities.
Bring a change of comfortable clothing and trainers.
GLADIATORS - READY! CONTENDERS - READY! 3, 2, 1...
About the venue
Telford Hotel and Golf Resort, Great Hay Drive, Sutton Heights, Telford TF7 4DT
By Car: (Please arrange car shares with your team).
The Telford Hotel is easy to find from the A442. Turn off at Brockton Roundabout onto Sutton Hill (by the Jet Petrol Station) and take the first exit onto Sutton Way. Turn left onto Great Hay Drive - the hotel is at the end of the road.
By Rail: The Telford Hotel is 6 miles from Telford station. Please contact us if you require a lift from the station, or alternatively please arrange for a taxi to bring you to the venue.
Due to increasing staff numbers, we will be allocating rooms and, where possible, will strive to pair you up with a member from your team or area. Please note, if you wish to book a single room, this will incur a charge of £50 per room booked.
What to bring
We are happy for you to 'come as you are' to the main conference sessions - this is a relaxed time spent together. We do also have a couple of fun events and activities however that you may prefer to bring extra clothing for:
Team activity on Thursday 6th: Please bring with you suitable outdoor clothing for this event as we will be on the playing field. Trainers and comfortable clothing (not jeans) will be fine.
Evening dinner & Staff Awards: This is a formal event, so let's dress to impress! (Think evening wedding reception).
