A thriving community

As part of Silverstone Park's on-going commitment to the health and well-being of its occupiers and members, we organise a series of weekly Boot Camp sessions - In 2017 starting 23 March.
A trained fitness instructor puts our occupiers through their paces with these high energy, fun and intense sessions.
Bringing out the competitive streak in our occupiers, popular quiz nights are held regularly on site.
Each one attracts a full house plus plenty of fun banter – all washed down with a curry and a pint. The latest quiz night (held March 2017) attracted ten teams of six and was won by Spare Parts – a combination of Fibonacci, BGN and CMA Marketing. Watch this space for details of our next quiz night.
