June seemed to be all about Birmingham (for some reason!)- but the first of our escapades to Birmingham took L&LG to possibly the least Birmingham-esque destination. We found ourselves at Packington Hall- a beautiful manor house, which became the setting for a very exciting joint 30th birthday.
James and Georgie came to us earlier in the year looking for something different and super-fun for their birthday do. After a couple of meetings, they settled on a fun treasure hunt-style team challenge day. Packington Hall, with its extensive grounds, and lake, became the most excellent of backdrops for this kind of activity.
L&LG created a 90s themed day of challenges and hunt-style games. Along the way, teams stumbled upon hidden performers, collected clues, took part in very silly Shooting Stars-inspired team games, swam the length of the lake, and wrestled each other for a life-sized stuffed puma in a meadow.
This was all punctuated by a hearty lunch, afternoon tea, and a very serious evening BBQ- prepared for the guests by L&LG foodie collaborator Drew Snaith.
