Travel Advice from the Foreign Office
The business was founded in 2007 by Jay Broughton who had worked for many years in the hospitality sector. From experience he realised that event agencies would promise a lot but deliver very little, so Funktion Events was born to change this. With year on year growth and excellent staff recruitment we now operate across the whole of the UK and in 37 overseas cities. Delivering all aspects of group experiences ranging from hen & stag do’s, private parties, team building & corporate events.
Over the years, we’ve shifted our focus to heavily look after the organiser of events. Whether that’s a maid of honour, mum, groom to be or birthday girl, we want to make life as simple and easy as possible for them. As well as using our expertise and tricks of the trade from experience, we also implement the latest technology to make organising straight-forward and even fun! Individual payment options, automised itineraries and 24/7 website access all help to look after the organiser first.

Funktion Events History
In the beginning...
The Funktion Events journey started in 2007 mainly planning and delivering corporate events and hospitality for the white-collar industries. However, due to the worldwide economic crisis in 2008 it forced us to look for new opportunities.
At this time our founder, Jay Broughton, was at the age where most of his friends decided to all get married within 18 months. This meant going on 8 stag do’s in one year! He quickly realised that organising a stag or hen do was not a simple job and there wasn’t much support for the best man or maid of honour out there. So, by applying precise planning and organisational skills that are essential to operate within the corporate and hospitality industry, Funktion Events group weekends away was born!
A new website was developed with the organiser in mind including one of the most comprehensive online events area. This means the organiser just simply sends out invites to their friends and everyone else pay’s individually online, on any device. The company now sends over 40,000 people on fun events each year across Europe.
Committed To Our People
As well as customer service, excellent recruitment and retention of our staff has been the driving force behind continued year on year high growth. We’re lucky enough to have built a team full of positive attitudes and ambitious staff that are passionate about the industry and goals. Something that makes Funktion Events unique is that the business believes in giving people a chance and chose to partner with Cheshire college to take on multiple apprenticeships. From that, the business was awarded the Business Apprenticeship Ambassador of the year which was a great milestone for the company!
In such a fun, leisure-based industry, the team get the one of a kind opportunity to have family trips and test the activities we offer organisers and groups. This means all members of the team are better educated on what we offer to answer customer questions, and also gives time for team bonding and making memories too.
Clients Who Have Trusted Us
In all our years, we curated experiences for a ton of different companies - talk about businesses of all different sizes, types, celebrities (but what happens on tour, stays on tour!)

Companies like Aviva treated their team to a classic Crystal Maze Challenge, whereas the monster company Airbus did our best seller treasure hunt and Money Supermarket chose Wacky Wheels for a company fun day.
