So in honour of Beef’s imminent appearance in The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale, Clare and her production team decided to organise a putting challenge between herself and all the guests and turned to us at UrbanCrazy to set up an extra-long hole in the studio, with some rather unusual obstacles. So who won the putt-off?
What incredible weather we’re having already and it’s not even July yet! The mercury keeps tipping over 30°C and we’re having some of the hottest June days since 1976! Not so great if you’re stuck indoors – but perfect if you’re outdoors – and even more perfect if you fancy a spot of mini golf. Read more
Have you seen our wacky ping pong tables yet? Paddington Central had, at an event where we supplied their entertainment some time ago. We were delighted when, just recently, they contacted us again, this time to commission us to build a bespoke table for their site. Read more
Are you planning an event? Are you looking for that extra-special something? Do you like chocolate?
If the answer is yes to any of the above then we have just the thing for you. It’s our newest addition to the UrbanCrazy range and definitely the most delicious – chocolate shawarma kebab! Read more
In the last few weeks I’ve had bundles of fun coming up with ideas and creating this one-off 9-hole crazy golf course for JW3. The family-friendly course is themed around Rio’s summer of sport and is now fully-installed on site. It will be open every day – except Saturdays – from Sunday 17 July until Sunday 4 September.
Saltburn Promenade has been home to a fabulous new minigolf course since March 2016. We designed and built the course to offer an enjoyable game for visitors of all ages and a treat for the eyes, with cleverly-placed seaside-themed obstacles and features. You must putt past the surfboard, around the lighthouse, over the bridge, through the beach hut and down the Bagatelle for glory!
Read on to learn more about the facility and for pointers on how to play some of the holes ahead of your next visit. Check out the gallery to the right for some of our favourite photos.
Last Saturday I spotted this story on the BBC website about a photo taken on New Year’s Eve in Manchester, which developed into an internet meme. As you scroll down the article you will notice a tweet from @mjlovatt_LFC in which he used the specialist app, SuperPhoto, to recreate the image with a paint effect.
So I decided to use the same app and another that I recently discovered – RollWorld – to reimagine some of our own favourite photos that we’ve taken over the past few years. Here are the hypnotic results…
It was a huge thrill to be back at the London Golf Show for the sixth time entertaining visitors with our minigolf and ping pong activities. Alongside the course and tables we had a separate stand with special offers on a bright selection of themed and novelty golf balls. The show was a success for us with many rounds and games played, Christmas pressies sold and funds and awareness raised for our partner charity, On Course Foundation. It’s a very worthy cause, please take a look at their website. Read more
A chance visit to a garden centre sowed the ‘seed’ of an idea for Simon Fitton earlier this year, which, with a bit of help from UrbanCrazy, finally came into bloom in August.
As a golf pro and successful golf club owner Simon had been looking to ‘branch’ out into the world of mini-golf but had not found the right location for his venture. When he stopped off to take a call in the car park of Dobbie’s Garden Centre in Peterborough he knew he had found the ideal spot and immediately spoke to the manager. Within a few days things started to take ‘root’.
