Team Building & Fun Days
We’ve partnered with the fantastic Firebird Events to offer a range of team building, developmental and motivational activities at The Wellington Arms, whether that be in our spacious Waterloo Suite or outdoors at the beautiful Wellington Country Park, just minutes from us.
Our country pursuit days offer an exciting mix of outdoor activities that are both exhilarating and a great way to bond with colleagues/clients and build relationships. With the beautiful Wellington Country Park situated just minutes from us, it’s a great excuse to get outside and enjoy a range of activities, from clay pigeon shooting to archery and fencing.
Fun challenges that encourage teamwork and identifying each other’s strengths. Challenges range from the Escape Room, where teams have to work together to crack the padlocks and puzzles in order to escape a locked room, to tasks that unleash their inner-creativity ranging from producing their own music video to a variety of cooking challenges.
Rewarding your employee’s hard work has been proven to increase engagement and loyalty, so treating them to a fun experience that allows you all to escape the ‘work talk’ is a great way to get to know each other’s personalities outside of the office environment. Experiences are so varied and include gin tasting, race nights, cocktail-making workshops and much more!
