Foo Fighters on tour: win our tickets!


Calling all Foo Fighters fans!

If you were listening to the Zane Lowe Show on Radio 1 last week, you might have heard the Foo Fighters announce a five-night UK tour in 2015. The singers will be returning to the UK next June, and made the announcement to coincide with the release of their eighth studio album, the brilliant Sonic Highways.

We’ve managed to get hold of two tickets for the Wembley Stadium concert on Saturday 20th June, and we’re giving them away to one lucky customer! Winners will sit in a category one seat and have access to exclusive Club Wembley perks: the Club Wembley concourse, with a choice of bars and concession outlets, and entry into the stadium through Club Wembley entrances. The Foo Fighters will be joined by the legendary Iggy Pop, and acclaimed newcomers Royal Blood. An event not to be missed!

To enter, simply place an order with us between now and 20th December worth £1500 or more. Terms and conditions available by email enquiry. If you have any questions, drop us an email at, or contact us on Twitter or Facebook.


An energetic challenge for one of our team

1Here at Darren Evans Assessments, we love to help our customers use energy more efficiently. In August, one of our team, Michael Brogden, took that mission statement literally…and entered the Circencester Tough Mudder race!

Tough Mudder isn’t just any old half-marathon, though Michael is no stranger to those. It’s a twelve-mile obstacle course designed to test your stamina and teamwork, and bills itself as the ‘toughest event on the planet. Probably’. Obstacles include man-made mountains, tunnels, pools of ice water, water slides through walls of fire and a rope course with electric shocks! This was Michael’s second Tough Mudder – he followed his first in 2013 with a coastal half-marathon and a coastal marathon – so he was classified as a ‘legionnaire’ and given extra challenges.


‘The atmosphere is brilliant’, Michael said. ‘There is a lot of shouting and whooping and a real camaraderie. Everyone is helping each other and is really social around the course. There is lots of laughter and some stray shoes which have been discarded or lost by runners throughout the day!’

Luckily Michael ran with three friends, and the team bolstered each other up – both mentally and physically – throughout the event.

And the hardest part?

‘Finishing the race through the electroshock therapy this year was a real ‘shock’’, said Michael, ‘as the voltage had been increased! After running eleven miles in the mud and wet, getting a shock as hard as a snake bite takes your breath away, and means that you have plenty to talk about after the race is over (once you have picked yourself up off the floor – if you are not there from the running then the electric shocks have probably involuntarily brought you to your knees)’.

We think it’s an amazing achievement – and we’re excited to cheer Michael on in his next challenge, an ultra-marathon called the Classic Quarter, in June 2015. That’s what we call energy efficiency!
