After London, this giant is known to be the hub of all upcoming ideas, perfect for motivating your crew.

The city has everything from show-stopping development to innovative indoor events or grand outdoor layouts. Known for pushing the boundaries through culture and nightlife, the city has also done the same for team building in Manchester.

Say farewell to boring in-office exercises, corporate-feeling and dreary activities, and introduce your staff to a workshop that will take them by surprise. From delicious chocolate making to the infamous commercial team break, there’s an activity for every kind of office found in the confines of Manchester; we also have some fantastic Christmas team events to add to your workplace.

Manchester is known for breaking the rules of days out and giving you something your staff will want to be a part of, creating effective development from the start.

Blending activities for a full day is your forte; ask your events manager to give you a helping hand at curating a personal event for your company.

Competitive Team Building Activities in Manchester

Competitive Team Building Activities in Manchester

Competitive, indoor or outdoor, formal or informal – with such a big city, you can be sure Manchester has all kinds of team building activities.

Competitive activities have proven to be a top way to get everyone invested in the experience, especially if you offer a prize at the end of the event.

Something like Zorb Bubble Games might go perfectly for a highly competitive activity while still adding an element of fun that will make this event feel more like leisure than work.

Of course, events aren't all about pitting your members against each other in a gruelling challenge.

Inclusive activities like chain reaction are a great way to encourage cooperation and communication with something fun.

Manchester Team Building Days Out

Manchester Team Building Days Out

I am looking for a team building day out in Manchester. There is something for you here, whether indoor or outdoor activities for small groups or large businesses. These activities build communication and trust to increase productivity.

As with most prominent cities in the UK, it's pretty easy to find the perfect venue in Manchester to suit your size, type of workshop and the budget you’re looking at.

Of course, that’s what we’re here to help with. Our events managers are trained in scouting out the best venues for your events and will help make your experience the best.

They've also had experience with groups as small as 5, to whole college campuses in the 1,000's and everything in between.

As well as finding separate venues for you, we can tailor many of our activities to your venue if your office is centred in Manchester or you’ve already seen the perfect venue for your development.
