Team Building At Down Hall in Hertfordshire

Down Hall in Hertfordshire is a beautiful venue, with extensive, well kept grounds – ideal for an outdoor team building event like our Hostage Rescue! And so it was on Friday that Operations Director Steve “Agent S” Scott rounded up his team of mercenaries, hostage takers and weapon handlers to treat 30 delegates to an explosive day!

Team Building at Wotton House in Surrey

The sun stayed out and made for a great day yesterday at the beautiful Wotton House Hotel in Dorking, Surrey.

Event Manager Kate Packham was running our action packed outdoor team building event, the Cryptic Challenge, for 160 delegates and had this to say on the day:

“A little bit of rain doesn’t damage outdoor events, and can sometimes even add to the enjoyment. That said, you’ll never hear me complain when we get glorious sunshine like this! The clients had a great time and, as ever with a Cryptic Challenge, the finale was nail-biting and hilarious!”

Imagine if the Krypton Factor and the Crystal Maze had a child together – we like to think it would look a bit like the Cryptic Challenge!
