UKGirlThing does Cardiff Part Two – The Hotels

Following on from our Cardiff Part One blog where we discussed the city itself, which proved to be a massive hit with us all!

UKGirlThing does Cardiff Part One – The City

One of the perks of being part of the APT Leisure team is that we regularly get to try and test all the awesome activities we have to offer. Not only does this mean we can better our knowledge to inform our clients, it means we can have a jolly good time together too! This was the case a couple of weekends ago when a team of us were lucky enough to spend some time in Cardiff. In true party expert’s style, we reported for duty.

We have moved! Lancaster House welcomes APT Leisure

Packing up on Friday 1st April – it suddenly dawned on us. Could this be one big, legendary April fools? “We’re moving….not really!” To our relief, it was not. We were so excited to be getting our brand new home at Lancaster House on the other side of Nottingham.

UKGirlThing's Diary - The Dreamboy's Brighton

Could a group of girls have been any more excited? I think not. We we’re talking about it all day! Our expectations, our ideal scenarios and perfect type of man!

A few ideas were thrown around until settling upon an exclusive Nottingham experience – the Disco River Cruise!

When I was asked at work if I fancied going to Cardiff to familiarise myself with the city I excitedly said yes - I leapt at the chance of going (and not just because it meant a day out of the office!) It had never really crossed my mind to go and visit Cardiff, it’s a city I didn’t really know much about (apart from the typical connection of Gavin and Stacey and the home of Shirley Bassey) Truthfully it’s not a place I’ve really heard being shouted about a

Cocktail Making Nottingham–Tried and Tested

Being in the party planning industry there is no excuse needed for an office night out! Emails frequently fly around, a 90’s fancy dress suggestion was even made recently! However last week we opted for cocktail making in Nottingham (our beloved home city). 

Diary of a Party Expert – Bubble Football

After weeks of excited chatter in the office, (mainly from the boys!) Wednesday had finally arrived and the bubble football team trip was here.
We’re a mixed team at the UKGirlThing office of girls and guys, so competition was always going to be fierce for the bubble football.
