15 creative ideas for corporate events

When it comes to planning creative ideas for corporate events, London has so much to offer.

At Events by Knight, we think corporate events should be fun, exciting and something your employees will not only want to participate in, but really look forward to.

So, with that in mind, we’ve put together 15 creative ideas for corporate events in London.

1 Cork and Cheese Challenge

Discover the secrets of wine and cheese matching. Following a brief introduction, your teams will work out the origin, style and description of wines and then use their initiative and collective knowledge to scour Borough market and purchase complementary cheeses.

2 Wine Tasting

As an ice breaker event or corporate get together, go wine tasting at workshops held by London Wine Academy.

3 Ice Carving

Challenge your teams to chip away at ice sculptures with prizes for the best attempts. Perhaps create your company logo. Below Zero Ice Bar London hold regular ice carving events, but you could organise one at your own premises too.

4 Shuffle, Bowling and Curling Challenge

Appeal to the competitive nature of your team with an event at the London Shuffle Club, Shoreditch. Let them battle it out at shuffle, ten pin bowling or curling and then chill out with the American themed diner and bar.

5 Crazy Golf

Go crazy with a round or two of crazy golf at Swingers, an indoor event with a 1920s atmosphere located near City Hall, Southbank.

6 The Great London Bake Off

Hot on the heels of the Great British Bake Off, how about a corporate Great London Bake Off to get the creative juices going? Add a dash of competition with teams competing against each other to create a winning bake in 90 minutes – all ingredients provided at The Castle Tooting.

7 Indoor Karting

See who can achieve the fastest lap time at Indoor Karting.

8 Go Zorbing

For the unfamiliar, Zorbing involves hurtling down a hill in a giant inflatable ball. Zorbing Group Experiences organise unique corporate events for groups of up to 12.

9 Five a Side Team Sports

Corporate five a side football or netball experiences to bring out the competitive nature of your team. See for London based organised team sports.

10 A speed boat experience

The ultimate need for speed. Visit Thames Rocket for corporate events on the water. Speedboat down the Thames at 30 knots and experience London from a nautical fibreglass rocket.

11 Go Ape

Go Ape zip wires are a fantastic way to encourage team sports. Choose to monkey around either at Battersea Park, South London, or Trent Park, North London.

12 Cocktail Making

Who can make the most creative cocktail, the most unusual cocktail, the best themed cocktail? Take your team to a mixology event and find out. See

13 African Drumming

Create music together and learn to communicate through beats and rhythms with African drumming workshops held by London African Drumming.

14 Sculpt balloons

Balloon sculpting workshops are a great way to encourage creativity. Get your team designing their own balloon caricature.

15 Seasonal workshops

London regularly plays host to a wide variety of seasonal workshops specially designed for teams and corporate events. See London Bridge City for this year’s offering. There’s candle making, wreath making and creating table decorations for starters.
