Friday 30th June 2017
More than 1,500 people who work at The Oxford Science Park, one of the most influential science & technology environments in the UK, were treated to an unusual and extreme lunchbreak at the Park’s annual Summer Party held on Friday 30 June 2017.
This year promised to be bigger and better with lots of rides including last year’s popular ones: Crazy Bulls and Miami Fever, and a new one: Freak Out! There were also lots of games stalls for people to enjoy from Shoot Out, the football strike challenge, to traditional fairground game Milk Churn; and for the Park’s nursery children, there was a bouncy castle with slide.
Delicious food was served from Oxford-based The Hog Roasterswhich provided slow roasted shredded brisket of beef in a smokey BBQ sauce, and La Cocina Espanola, the Spanish Kitchen, which cooked up a chicken and chorizo paella and a vegetable paella.
North Cotswold Brewery provided their award winning Shagweaver Pale Bitter and Gwynt Ddraig’s Happy Daze Cider.
Piers Scrimshaw-Wright, managing director of the Park said: “The Summer Party is a real highlight in the Park’s events’ calendar, bringing together everyone who works at our Park to celebrate summer and being part of our thriving collegiate community. It’s expertly organised by the on-site management team and our catering crew and I pass on my thanks to them all. We hope that everyone had a great time.”
