Entertainment and Team Building

You can enhance an event that is being held in another area of the Club, and book Robby for a show that can last from 30 minutes to three hours. Robby provides an entertaining show, and delegates and guests can be placed in teams and/or coached. Robby can perform a range of training drills, games and competition specifically designed for relationship and team building as well as entertainment.

This opportunity could be used as:

  • An effective ice-breaker at the start of a function
  • A welcome break from a meeting
  • An up-beat finish to a conference or event

Alternatively, members can host events in the billiards room. With purpose-built exhibition arena, gourmet catering and the welcoming atmosphere of the adjacent Members' Carbine Bar, we offer a truly unique experience.
