After two years of virtual company socials we rediscovered the great outdoors together last week, at our belated 10-year anniversary celebration.
The party began at Dojima Brewery in Ely, where we toasted ten years of graph visualization adventures with Dojima sake in the beautiful walled Japanese gardens at Fordham Abbey. Having sampled the sake, we learned about its history and culture. A brewery tour and Matcha tea ceremony were followed by a feast of Japanese tapas and Wagyu beef, washed down with Japanese beer and natural wine.
After a quick game of croquet in the garden, we made our way to the racecourse to catch the opening of the Newmarket Nights summer season. A prime spot in the Premier Enclosure meant that we could greet or curse our horses eye-to-eye as they reached the winning post.
The racing was rounded off by a show-stopping performance from Paloma Faith, who serenaded us into the evening, sweltering in a pair of long red “marigolds” on what had been the hottest day of the year so far.
We’re looking forward to more regular socials over the coming summer – whether it’s a return to the Cambridge Gliding Center or just a good old-fashioned picnic. And if you think the social side of life at Cambridge Intelligence sounds good, why not check out our latest vacancies?
