The Games are getting closer every day! Hopefully your preparations and sports training is going well ahead of this eagerly anticipated Games in Stoke-On-Trent and Staffordshire. The excitement is certainly there for the 23 sports on the packed weekend programme but we know many of you will be making equally committed plans for the awe-inspiring celebration that is the Great Games Party on Saturday the 23rd of June. The fancy dress theme this year is ‘Mystical, Magical and Masquerade’, so search out your fantastic fairy, mystical magician or your mythical beast costume…the choice is entirely yours. As always a great prize awaits the winner.
We are also delighted to confirm that this year’s venue for the Great Games Party is Keele University Student’s Union.
The region has an array of terrific party destinations but in this Union we think we have secured the best of the lot! This incredible venue has the flexibility and infrastructure to stage a huge spectrum of events, from formal dining and elegant soirees to live bands and performances from chart topping artists! Having benefitted from a recent £2.2 Million state-of-the-art redevelopment, this multi-award winning Union is one of the destinations most versatile venues. It has been ranked in the top 4 Student’s Unions in the UK. The sound and lighting is top quality and this is a big multi-room venue with something for everyone-including great value drinks promotions at the multiple cash bars! Visitors in 2015 will remember that we hosted the legendary Great Games Party 2015 at the same venue, so we already know that this year’s party will be a massive, spectacular and unforgettable event.
The Ballroom, K2, The Bubble VIP room and the Outback areas will all be utilised for the ultimate party at this impressive destination. The K2 is going to be used for the R & B floor, where you can dance to the exuberant beats of the latest legends as well as moving to timeless Hip-Hop and smooth sounds.
The main room, (AKA the Ballroom) is going to feature the universally popular Official live band from the past few years – Indio Black. These guys always deliver spectacular sets that bring the house down. Plus their upbeat classic tracks are interspersed with some great sets from our favourite international funky house DJ – Stuart Ojelay who is really planning to get the crowd going as always!
Stuart has been part of the international House scene for almost 20 years and has performed on every continent in the world.
Long associated with the legendary Hed kandi, he’s headlined some of the World’s most glamorous events including Macau China, Punta Del Este Uruguay and Cape Town, South Africa, not to mention bringing in the New Year at Pacha, Florianopolis Brazil! Currently he is also an extremely successful, well-established DJ at ‘Word of Mouth’ events, which take place regularly.
Stuart mixes a variety of soulful warm ups, deep house, bass to sumptuous disco and main room anthems. From intimate clubs, beach & pool parties to festivals, his effervescent style never fails to serve up hands in the air action on global dancefloors.
On the production side, Stuart is becoming a household name with many tracks topping the worldwide download charts and was voted as a top artist of the Traxsource House Artists in the past years.
Stuart also mixed, compiled and produced the ‘Hed Kandi Taste of’ series album, which topped the iTunes download charts.

The night will feature an array of amazing entertainment. For those that have not heard the guys from Indio – here is some info on them.
Indio Black is a tight, professional four-piece covers band. Although from diverse backgrounds, the members all bring a vast experience and a shared passion for the music they play: an up-tempo, considered collection of popular contemporary rock, pop and indie.
Having wowed the crowds in recent years, the demand was very high to book this popular band again for what promises to be the party of the decade. With these guys we can guarantee you an incredible atmosphere, which will definitely get everyone in the party mood.
Plus if you are not sure whether this party will be everything that we are telling you it will be, feel free to have a quick look at a short video of the UK Corporate Games in Nottingham last year. Our parties are big, noisy and fun for everyone!
