THEY improv serves the entire United Kingdom with a variety of improv comedy, game shows, murder mysteries and team building activities in London, Manchester, Cambridge and Oxford in England, Glasgow and Edinburgh in Scotland, Cardiff in Wales, and Belfast in Northern Ireland.
The City of London and the Financial District represent one of the greatest centers of finance in the world. More power is wielded here and there is a great need for corporate events that reflect well upon our area clientele. Along with the major financial players in Canary Wharf, there is a strong demand for entertainment and training options that understand the international nature of the businesses. Tech city, also known as The Silicon Roundabout, have up and coming companies that require more programs to think outside the box. Our London programs can help these locations as well as Westminster, Baker Street, Fleet Street and the rest of the Capital City along the Thames.
There is a lot more that keeps Manchester united than sports. The City Centre is a thriving business hub with the many who work here will attest. There are great things to see and do and our corporate approach is a great addition to the tools that the businesses of Manchester have available to them. Along with New Islington, Northern Quarter, Piccadilly Village and elsewhere along the Metrolink, there is no shortage of interesting places for scavenger hunts and venues for team building.
Cambridge is certainly known for education. With so many excellent educational alternatives, the city is known for using intellectual approaches to team building and training. With such popular television programs that bring mysteries into the city, there is a desire for murder mystery entertainment to help teams to enhance their relationships. Oxford may be great, but there are more mystery shows set here due to Inspector Morse and his Endeavours.
We are proud to work throughout Scotland including Central Scotland in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Fife, West Lothian, Perth, and Dundee at the various hotels, conference spaces or even outside with scavenger hunts. We can also serve Inverness and Aberdeen in the Highlands or the golf courses of North Scotland, Ayrshire and Midlothian in the South, the castles dotting the landscape and even under the dark skies of Dumfries & Galloway.
Cardiff in the South is the major center for business activity. It is a creative and cultural hub and serves as a perfect location for groups getting together with people throughout the region. There are many very recognizable sites and great venues throughout to enable people to have a great time. With Swansea in the West and the natural beauty of the North and Mid Wales, there is no shortage and wonderful locations to get corporate groups together.
Certainly Belfast is a major part of the corporate culture of Northern Ireland. There are many high-tech companies that have sprouted up and gained attention. The Titanic Quarter serves as a wonderful backdrop for a variety of entertaining and team building adventures. With Lisburn nearby, there are even more options. Derry adds even more options. There is no shortage of programs available for Belfast and beyond.

London is the Focus for Many Corporate Events
With so many great areas to work, such as the City, Westminster, Camden & Islington, Canary Wharf, Kensington & Chelsea, Heathrow, Lambeth & Southwark as well as the port on the Thames and the rest of the area, there is no shortage of options for locations to enhance employees in the Greater London area.
Let us come to you and help your group in London!
For private parties, banquets and corporate events, our cast of detectives, mysterious suspects and plots are customized to our clients at venues of their choosing for luncheons or dinner shows. We will have your group trying to discover whodunit while laughing the night away. We have smaller versions where the participants play the characters in a no-pressure environment.
Game shows invite your group to participate more directly through actually coming up on stage and being put through TV Show-styled game shows to compete for not very expensive prizes (we wouldn't want anyone unhappy that they didn't win). With a wide selection like our version of the Family Feud, the Match Game, Minute to Win It or the Newlywed Game, there is something to take care of your group.
Improvisational comedy is a great way to have an ensemble entertain your group in a relaxed atmosphere. This can be done very presentational or more intimate if you prefer. The nature of this show is lightning in a bottle. There are moments that can never be repeated because everything is made up in the moment. The audience shares the creative process and can be active participants in the fun.
We can put the focus on management or on certain hot button issues that you would like to address through the use of a talk show. Great for state of the company presentations, we can help American companies spread the main corporate values to international audiences. This can all be done with more of a comedic bent or higher production values to enhance the impact.
Getting employees to work together while potentially training for specific skill sets is what we do. Whether it is training for leadership or presentation skills, sales training, emotional intelligence or simple communication, we have programs for you. Because we utilize American techniques, this makes our workshops stand out from our competition.
From Scavenger Hunts to Mini-Olympiads or other group activities, we have a selection of programs that can get people working together in unique ways. Our Scavenger Hunts can help you to get your group to know the area and be exposed to the local people while enhancing bonding. Simply contact us to find out how we can help your team to get to the next level.
The countries of the United Kingdom have three basic types of events.
First, there are the events where American companies want to meet with their local counterparts. This involves bonding and getting to know one another.
Second, there are the events with more of an international flavor. These involve people from several countries getting together. These tend to be in the more cosmopolitan areas such as London, Glasgow or Manchester.
Third, there are the events with teams of Americans celebrating a success. These incentives awards events often include activities that get away from the every day.
And being in the United Kingdom, English is a shared language simplifying the adjustment to American styled facilitation.
Our programs run the full gamut of whatever services you may desire and can be based on any desired results. This means that you should consider factors that can influence the style of performance.
First, you should choose if you want a daytime activity or if you would prefer something around a meal.
Second, where might this take place? We can do things outside, such as a scavenger hunt or Mini-Olympiad, or we can have more of a dinner event. The relative safety of a hotel can be a primary choice or you could desire more of an urban backdrop.
Third, you should let us know your goals. Is it team building, skills development, entertainment, or anything else?
Fourth, how long do you want the event to last?
Fifth, are there language or cultural considerations? We can adapt to most things though we usually operate in English. Even for people from a specific country, English is often the great equalizer as dialects can cause issues. Each country has their own dialects and words that don't cross the borders. Knowing these differences is helpful.
Lastly, if you know your budget, it can help guide the process and limit options to what would be more acceptable. This goes in both directions as knowing there is a larger budget can open options that we might not otherwise make you aware of.
With that information we can usually generate some approaches to help you achieve your goals.
Some of the more remote locations may also require accommodations for the performers. There are additional costs for incidental expenses such as parking, etc., but tends to not be too significant. Of course, the choice of venue may influence the cost as some restaurants are much more expensive than others.
You should consider parking costs, transportation for your team if off site, food costs and accommodations. Of course, bringing us to you is often less expensive than bringing you to us.
