Every year we publish some discount dates on our website to aid our travelling around the UK in the summer months. This helps keep our travelling down which is one of the biggest costs we bear in providing our It’s A Knockout’s. If your date is flexible and you are with 150 miles of other work we have you could benefit from one of our discountable dates.
Our Discount Dates Page.
We have a special page on our website where these are published. Please follow this link… Discounted Dates 2020
This also helps charities and fundraising events organisers gain the best price possible and so maximising their fundraising efforts. Please visit our Discounted Dates Page for a list of dates. Although this page is updated quite often, if you are holding a fundraising event please contact us to see what dates we can offer you at a reduced rate.
During the summer months we are on the road pretty much and some times gaps in the diary appear where we are not working and a discounted date can be offered.
Please Contact Us even if a compatible date isn’t on the list, you never know, we may still be able to help you !
Our last blog of the year is a roundup and look back at our 2019 season and the fun we had providing our It’s A knockout games up and down the UK during the past year. As you can imagine, we’ve racked up a few miles this year, touring as far north as Scotland, down to the Channel Isles and Jersey. We’ve really enjoyed our travels, meeting lots of great people, and attending a variety of different types of days, events and festivals.
As the roundup continues, we must add that the charity days are as usual some of our favourites. We love it when the teams come in fancy dress, and it’s great that charities use us to help raise money and awareness for their causes. For more information please see our Charities Page.
Kids love our games too. We’ve attended many schools, colleges, universities and youth camps in 2019. Our biggest was for CamJam (Cambridge Scouts Jamboree). At this day over 2,000 scouts took part in our games ! And as with all our sets of games, no one got left out. Everyone in every team took part in every game.
We’re now looking forward to 2020. And bookings and enquiries are coming in quicker than usual. Here are just twenty of the days we have in the diary for 2020 (in alphabetical order)… Aylesford, Ardrossan, Bradford, Cardiff, Clacton, Deal, Glasgow, Guernsey, Glasgow, Hull, jersey, Kidderminster, Lancaster, Mansfield, Melton Mowbray, Newquay, Stevenage, Southampton, Swindon, Weymouth. More to come of course. Check out our blogs in 2020 and events pages for more details.
We’ve got some great additions to our games in 2020 and we’re looking at how to make our games even more exciting, so please Contact Us if you’re planning day of entertainment where you need to keep people busy and having fun.
As our season draws to a close, we look back at some more of the teams that took part in our It’s A Knockout’s in 2019. We’ve had some great teams taking part this year. Some have turned up in fancy dress attire, some not. Although we’re always pleased to see teams all dressed up for the games, some of our funniest moments this year have been with teams that have turned up in just t-shirts ready for some fun.
It tends to be the charity days where we get the best fancy dressed teams as they really get into the fun of the day. Usually bringing cheerleaders, supporters, mascots and designing their own fun Joker Card (which they “play” to get double-points on a game of their choice).
Of course, teams that attend our days get some bonus extra points for coming all dressed up for the games. So whether you come in just colour coordinated t-shirts, or, get really into it as some of the teams have do so in these images, you’re set for a great day of funny and games taking part in a Knockout Challenge “It’s A Knockout”.
If you’d like to book one of our great sets of games please Contact Us for details. Or, if you represent a small group that would like to take part in one of the public events booked with us please see our Events Page.
Fun Image blog: It’s A Knockout Teams 2019
With the 2019 season in full swing, we thought we’d share a few images of some of the teams that have taken part in our events so far this year. You’ll see from the images that some have really “gone to town” with taking part in some type of fancy dress attire. We love teams in fancy dress, it ads colour to the day, and helps us with the scoring of the games.
The images in this blog are from events we have been held at that were as far north as Scotland, and as far south as Jersey (in the Channel Islands). Teams that are in fancy dress get extra fun points added to their score, also designing, making and bringing a Joker card, team Cheerleaders and mascots gain extra points too.
If you’re taking part in one of our fun It’s A Knockout’s please use these images as inspiration for your own team fancy dress. Although just colour coordinated t-shirts are fine, why not jazz them up and ad some nick-names on the back? It give’s our commentator-compere a great opportunity to interact with you.
Remember, that a fancy dress costume should be easy to move around in, you don’t want it restricting you on the games. Also, no full arm/face painting please as it leaves streaks on the inflatables. (A little bit of face only paint may be okay). No sharp objects please, beware pirates teams, no swords! And remember “modesty underwear” in case you costume gets ripped from all the running/diving/scrambling through the inflatables.
If you’d like to take part in one of our charity or open events please go to the Events Page on our website for details. For further reading please see…
Our Mini Knockout 2019 is a great set of games for any small team building style event. It has six colourful games, and the fun lasts about around 2 hours. It has a great mix of games and is still loads of fun, but on a smaller scale to our Bronze Show which travels on an HGV.
The starting price for the Mini Knockout covers up to 8 teams of 8 taking part, but more can easily be added.
We offer different sized sets of games because sometimes people don’t need or require a full sized It’s A Knockout games setup for an event. If you just wish for a couple of hours of activity then the Mini Knockout is ideal. Three of the games are dry, and the other three can be ran wet (or bubbly). As you can see form the top image, ideally the Mini Knockout needs about the size of three tennis courts in room.
This set of games is great for small team building days and small private events. The games are easily scale-able for adrenaline according to the type or level of teams that are taking part.
ADDITIONS & VARIATIONS.
The Mini Knockout can also be expanded to a Mini Plus version which has 8 games (covering up to 12 teams taking part). This version is an ideal super-budget priced knockout suitable for small charity fundraising days or village shows. Also, for team building events there is the option to add five of our Wacky School Sports Day games giving a great balance of knockout and sports day games that lasts three hours.

We are pleased to announce that we will be visiting Jersey in the Channels islands in 2019 for the Friends of SCBU & Jersey Children’s Charity Fundraising Event 2019. This great charity fund raising weekend is being held on Saturday 29th June & Sunday 30th June 2019. The venue being the Royal Jersey Showground, Trinity, Jersey. The day opens at 10.00 am each day with the games starting at 11am.
The event promises to be an absolute blast full of fun, water, foam and lots of laughs, and all for a wonderful cause – the precious babies and children in the Special Care Baby Unit and Robin Ward at the Jersey General Hospital.
This will be the forth year that we have visited Jersey for the charity and it has always been a great success. There will lots to do on the day including children’s bouncy castles, sideshow, entertainment and food vendors. So even if you’re not in a team, or a supporter of one of the teams they will still be plenty to do, come along and enjoy the atmosphere and the day !
As you can see above everyone had a great day and it was also captured by ITV cameras covering local news. So, some along and you might be on the telly!
If you’re not on Jersey, but want to join in the fun and take part in one of our charity It’s A Knockout’s please see our Events Page to see other similar events where the public are invited to enter teams.
For a bit of visual fun and enjoyment, watch a video of our Kings Banquet It’s A Knockout game from our Silver Show. The team in relay collect the pieces of Kings Banquet Cake for his birthday and reassemble (Velcro together) it at the end of our Maze Inflatable obstacle. It’s a great fun game, bashing and weaving back and forth through the course collecting the pieces.
There is a lucky twist at the end where we ask two of the team members to lift the completed cake aloft and deliver it back down and over the Maze Inflatable to finish the game. However, this isn’t as easy as it seems as you’ll see at the end of the video.
We like this game as it’s not set that the fastest or fittest team will win when the end-twist of delivering the cake a-loft is played out.
The Kings Banquet is just one of the eight games on a standard Silver Show Knockout. Click here to visit the page dedicated to this set of games. Plus also see our Silver Show blog article from 2018 for more pictures and info.
