Interactive teambuilding activities can offer so much more than simply getting people to sit through a seminar with the occasional question and answer session. Getting people up and about and interacting with one another is a far better way of engaging your workforce.

Team building can strengthen the bonds between employees as a whole and let your team properly get to know one another and work better together.

We offer a range of fun and interactive team building activities that place an emphasis on communication, trust and a fun sense of competition. Our events will leave everyone entertained and able to come away with a renewed sense of cooperation.

With games inspired by popular television shows, as well as a few of our own design, all of our interactive team building activities come with their own hosts, props, up-to-date equipment, medal ceremony, a fully trained first aider, and £5 million public liability insurance.

Here’s 10 of the best we currently offer.

Over the course of the day, the teams will be tasked with many different challenges to win different paints, blueprints and art supplies to add to your painting, including puzzles, quizzes and engineering, mental, and visual tasks that each plays to the strengths of everyone within the group.

At the end of the day, all the different pieces of art will be put together into a large collage art piece that you will be able to take away as a memento of the day.
