Team Building Events
Our creative team building events are listed below to stimulate your thinking but they are by no means set in stone. We have rarely run the same event twice so tell us which events you like and we will customise a day’s activities just for you.All of our team building events are based outdoors in the fantastic setting of Eastnor Castle estate.
Our events are goal orientated, engaging and are designed to enhance workplace skills building on the performance of an individual and the team.It is very important to us that your day is rewarding, purposeful, inclusive, collaborative and fun with everyone feeling that they have achieved a personal goal and gained knowledge.
From cookery to photography, from pioneering to communication, from mentally stimulating giant puzzles to adrenalin packed high and low ropes challenges.
Take a breath of fresh air and come to a different type of culinary team build day. The â€˜kitchen’ is situated in the woods around the Castle where you will learn about outdoor and survival cooking such as roasting food over a fire, fire pits, stews and smoking fish.The locally sourced produce will provide the basis for your team to work in groups to produce a meal in an environment, which they have probably never experienced before. It is a group challenge and regardless of how skilled you are in the kitchen at home, nature’s kitchen is a different ball game and a new challenge.
The team will work towards a three course meal, which they will all get to enjoy at the end of the day. The activity is designed to focus on communication skills, leadership, creativity and initiative whist being fun and tasty!
This event uses photography to highlight to teams the importance of working together and how each individual role contributes to the team or organisation as a whole.
The participants are given cameras and given the task of creating a large photographic mosaic of the whole team. This requires careful planning and communication as well as group management. The teams will also have to tackle some collaborative tasks in order to complete the challenge successfully. It allows for many skills to come to the fore and does not require all participants to be overly active. The group will leave with a memory of the day, which will act as a reminder of how they can achieve an objective by working closely together.
Set your creativity free with this activity that is designed to promote free expression whilst developing or enhancing individual and group creativity.
This is not an art course but a team building event situated in the Castle grounds, which uses natural materials found on the estate to create pieces of art. To be successful the participants need to work together in small groups, by planning, using their initiative and managing the flow of ideas. The final challenge is to create a giant picture as one large group with just the natural materials around them and of course their imagination.
Outside are exclusively based at Eastnor Castle, which is situated in the Malvern Hills, an area of natural beauty. The Castle offers a venue packed with prestige, high quality facilities for meetings, accommodation and dining, all of which create a special and memorable experience.
The Estate provides 5,000 acres of varied terrain and Outside work with the natural topography of the land to involve underground and tree-top activities with everything in between.Using the surrounding environment and natural elements we are able to create team building days that are invigorating, inspiring and best of all a real break from the city and the office environment.
Whilst the venue is situated in the heart of the countryside it is only ten minutes from the national motorway network. The Castle is 2Â½ miles east of Ledbury on the A438 Tewkesbury road.
