There was dancing in the streets around the historic grounds of Gawsworth Hall as hundreds of colleagues from specialist lender Together and their guests enjoyed a fun-filled Magic of Motown event.
Guests put on their afro wigs, flares and platform heels for the glitter-tastic party to mark another successful year, which has seen the Cheadle-based business earn a host of industry awards and grow its headcount to over 600.
They celebrated the sound of a generation with 60s and 70s Motown hits from Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Steve Wonder, The Four Tops and the Jackson 5, all performed by a talented Magic of Motown cast and band in the grade I-listed hall’s amphitheatre.
With numerous costume changes and dazzling dance moves, it was clear to see why the act has been seen by more than a million people to date, and had a starring role at the Royal Varieties last year.
Guests were also treated to delicious street food, a pop up tea room, a chocolate fountain, ice cream van and a cocktail bar at the event.
There were competitions for the best fancy dress, with individual, pair and group prizes, with Sarah Hargreaves, a product analyst at Together, and her friends walking away with the star prize of a trip to Marbella.
Together’s HR director Kevin Fisher said: “The Magic of Motown was our most successful summer celebration yet, with 800 guests singing and dancing the night away to all of the classic hits. It was a great opportunity for colleagues, friends and guests to get together and we’re delighted that everyone had a fantastic time.”
Together is committed to rewarding colleagues for their hard work, and the annual summer extravaganza is one of the company’s many social events.
