Verve Company Retreat Osea Island, Essex

Innovative software company Verve, were planning a retreat that reflected their company ethos of being able to work from anywhere. Osea Island was the perfect venue for their staff to have fun and to work in a social and relaxed the middle of nowhere!

Osea Island was the perfect place to reflect Verve's ethos


  • Event production. Installing lighting around the whole island including party lighting and sound systems
  • Ensuring all the basics like security and medical teams were on the island
  • Bringing along the fun stuff, including a huge inflatable assault course, fire walkers, Gypsy Shrine glitter face painting, karaoke, and an outdoor cinema.
  • Talking of the outdoor cinema, our production team worked with actors to create an immersive horror experience for the screening of The Strangers. We terrified everyone (in a fun way!)
  • We built a yurt village
  • There was a huge party on a Friday night. We worked with Tribe of Frog to create a psychedelic vibe throughout, UV cannons enhanced everyone’s glow paint and glitter!

RESULTS: We received excellent feedback from the Verve staff survey, averaging a score of 8.7/10. The team is already discussing plans with us to go bigger and bolder next year!
