Team Building Venues Hire Guide

Manchester is a city renowned for its historical structures, beautiful architecture, rich culture, and overall inviting atmosphere and appealing ambiance. It's an excellent environment for work and for assembling a high-functioning team, no matter what your area of work may be. But in addition to the knowledge and skills that each team member brings to the table, what truly helps a team succeed in its endeavours is the bond that its members share. Since humans are social creatures, it is essential to interact and share ideas with other people.

If you want to enhance your team's problem-solving abilities, communication, and general performance when it comes to tasks in the future, hosting team buildings as often as you can is crucial. Additionally, employees will learn more about their individual roles and responsibilities within the team as well as the company's values, which will further motivate them to give it their all at the workplace. It is important to make your teammates feel included, valued, and heard. We've put together a list of a few potential team-building experiences that, apart from games, you can incorporate into your event:

  • Escape room experience Escape rooms are a great opportunity to test and improve your team's problem-solving skills and ability to work under pressure. Additionally, you won't have to do much work if you choose to hire an escape room venue because the event space will handle almost everything for you. What’s more, you can buy an escape room experience kit and have a good time at any other kind of venue.
  • Scavenger hunt Planning a scavenger hunt throughout Manchester is a great way to make sure that you and your team have an unforgettable experience. The event can be as elaborate as you like. The Manchester Art Gallery, Science and Industry Museum, Manchester Cathedral, Etihad Stadium, and The Whitworth, and Heaton Park are examples of famous sights that can all be included in your route creation. You can round off the enjoyable experience at the venue you have hired in the area.
  • An activity-based venue experience  Why not choose a location that offers a particular activity, such as bowling, karaoke, pottery and craft making, cooking, or baking. You can hire a movie theatre and select a good movie for your group to watch and discuss afterwards. That may be a great way to save time as an organiser, and additionally, all the work will be mostly done by the venue itself. You can also hire an outdoor venue and enjoy fun activities such as swimming, skiing, climbing or any other kind of outdoor fun.
  • A private concert or game show You can hire a blank-canvas venue, where you can carry out any kind of activity you desire. You can hire a band or even an entertainer of some sort and enjoy a fun night with your teammates. This option may be great for bigger team buildings.

Guests Reviews of Team Building Venues on Tagvenue

Danielle L.
Booked The Workshop at Department Bonded Warehouse
The whole team were extremely helpful on the day and beforehand with any queries I had, special mention for Olly and Kieran who were amazing and even helped me with a quick visit before the date we had booked to have a look around and check suitability for our needs. The venue itself is stunning and would really cater for anyone as it genuinely has everything! Breakfast and lunch was fab and all members of staff were friendly and welcoming.
Will E.
Booked Mezzanine Lounge at King Street Townhouse
The room was superb - if a little warm - but very comfortable and a great alternative to the standard spaces around Manchester. The service from KSTH, especially from Amy, was excellent - she couldn't have been more helpful.
Melissa P.
Booked Busines Centre-Clocktower Rms at Kimpton Clocktower Manchester
Location near Manchester Oxford Road station. The venue itself was stunning, great reception and attention to details. The event room was great, with lots of wonderful touches (like a record player!) and all the facilities needed. The staff were friendly and professional. They catered to last minute asks, without any fuss and positive attitude. Excellent!
