Team Building Exercises based in London

Big Beat offer a range of team building exercises for groups of 10 to 1000 lasting between 30 minutes to 2 hours. Ideal for conferences & away days, you can even record your own team CD!


Samba Drumming

Using authentic Brazilian instruments including the surdo (large bass drum), ago-go bell and snare drum, participants will experience some of the passion, energy and rhythms associated with South America.

Giving instructions
By learning the rhythms ‘parrot fashion’, your team will quickly pick up the beats they need, and after 45 minutes they’ll be playing a samba reggae piece, complete with calls and breaks! Lots of energy, lots of noise and a real sense of achievement, and your team will be singing and clapping the rhythms in the office days after.
We provide all instruments.


  • Groups from 10 to 1000
  • 30 minutes to 2 hours
  • Perfect for conferences, away days, team building and more
  • Can be combined with other creative sessions like recording your own CD!

Junk percussion

Dustbin lids, car wheels, drain pipes, scrap metal... it's all music. Junk Percussion (aka The Scrap Heap Challenge) is a remarkable session creating a huge array of sounds and rhythms that will leave the participants upbeat and buzzing.

It is an amazing journey, taking inanimate everyday objects and turning them into musical instruments in the hands of your team. Your group will learn to play the purpose made clank-a-phone, bat-phone and the chain gang, creating a unique funky groove with their fellow workers.

Workshops and sessions include instruments made out of ordinary scrap/junk and forgotten items. Call us to find out more about the unique instruments your team will get to experience!


  • For 10 to 500 people
  • Can be split into smaller groups then brought back together
  • Design/bring your own instruments
  • Great for recycling awareness
  • Can be combined with other drumming sessions

Creative Away Days

Explore your creative side through theatre games, music and sculpture for a day of fun, play and creative exploration with your colleagues.

In small groups, you will spend the day learning fun creative activities including composing your own musical score, learning drama skills, storytelling and creating a junk sculpture. Whether you 'think' you're creative or not, this day is an opportunity to explore your inner creative world and access parts in yourself and your colleagues that may be yet undiscovered territory.
