Drumming events - corporate team building activities based in London

If you're looking for a team-building session that will get your team up out of their seats, moving about, and enjoying themselves, Big Beat offers a range of drumming and rhythm-based events that will do just that.

Big Beat provide a selection of music and rhythm-based activities for conferences, away days and themed events.

We’ve been delivering team building activities across London and the UK - even Europe (and beyond) - for the last 20 years.

Our conference icebreakers are designed to go anywhere in the world, without any fuss or high transport costs. Previous events have seen Big Beat delivering sessions as far afield as Turkey, Malaysia and Dubai.

Team Building - Workshops - Ice Breakers

Started in 1999 by a group of passionate drummers, Big Beat have worked with the likes of WWF, RBS, ACCOR HOTELS, BRITISH AIRWAYS, PROCTOR & GAMBLE, UNILEVER and many more! We have strong links with some of the top event agencies in the UK and work all over Europe and further afield.

Our corporate drumming events are great for injecting energy into your day, whether you want a full team building session or a quick energiser or ice breaker.

Our range of team building events includes samba drumming workshops, (the very colourful) boomwhackers, junk percussion and other creative options, like the Bag Lady Workout and the Toy Orchestra.

The events range from 10 - 90 minutes up to half-day and full-day sessions. We will happily discuss your requirements with you.

You don't need any particular ability - even the most rhythmically challenged have left our events having had a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable afternoon.

What our clients say

Dickie Blades

Client Managing Director

Working with Big Beat was great fun and extremely energising. They ran a team building event at our Global conference which was outstanding - I thoroughly recommend them.

Mark Johnstone

Event Manager

I've worked on hundreds of corporate events over the years. Adrian and the team at Big Beat are by far one of the most professional, reliable and fun organisations to work with. Everyone always has a blast.

Chris Young

Krik Music

Adrian is a well prepared, punctual, creative and diverse musician. He always brings flair and adds many percussive options to the music, including electronic instruments. He has a vast knowledge of musical cultures and rhythms and is eclectic in his approach. He works well with groups of musicians and is a pleasure record and perform with. He listens!

Chris Francis

Quadrant Client Relations Team

On behalf of everyone at Quadrant I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Big Beat for your help with organising the team exercise at our recent seminars.The session really hit the mark with the delegates and ended the day on an uplifting and fun note. We will certainly consider doing something similar at our next event.

Chrissie L

Excellent Event

Great company to work with - they delivered a motivating and fun experience for a conference I was organising. Big Beat received excellent feedback from the delegates and I would certainly choose them again!


Our Samba workshop was enormously fun and all the children enjoyed playing the different drums. They learned about the different Brazilian rhythms from the visiting practitioner who clearly showed a lot of experience and knowledge in his field. Very rewarding overall, and I'm certain we will be asking Big Beat to come back soon!

Jane Chapman

We booked Big Beat as a surprise Xmas present for our two twenty something year old sons and a group of thirty of their friends. It was absolutely brilliant!
No one knew what to expect but with excellent tuition and encouragement from Adrian, everyone joined in with the Samba drumming. It was great fun learning the rhythms and having a go with different instruments and resulted in us actually producing a great sound. I would definitely recommend this as something fun and new to try.
Thank you Adrian

John Bryson

What a great way to engage and energise your teams! This activity was so much fun and gave us a all a hugely enjoyable shared experience.

Big Beat were engaging, witty and adapted easily to suit the audience.

Ellie White

I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop with Big Beat as it allowed us to work together as a team to create something great. It was great when we all played a tune together at the end of the workshop as everyone was engaged and participating.
