Calm & Inspiring

Be a star – Dress up as your favourite music star, write a text and then do the performance of your life. Always wanted to be like the Beatles, Kiss, Dolly Parton or John Travolta? Live out your dream for a short while!

Cut your own CD – At last you can record your very own song! Re-write the lyrics of a well-known song and then, after a quick rehearsal, it’s time to step into the recording studio and get in front of that mike. On with the headphones, start dancing and sing at the top of your lungs.

British pub games – customize your own best-of-five competition: choose from our many ‘British Pub Games’ selection.

Garden party – A mixture of old pub games and garden party activities. Best combined with a picnic.

Bed of coals – Walk over hot coals. Focus required. Do you dare?

Ice sculpting – Making your own ice sculpture is a relaxing and creative activity that boosts team spirit. Available all year round.

Kayaking – so much more than just paddling. An experience that is hard to describe; it has to be experienced.

Kinect: video game battle – Challenge your colleagues in slalom, javelin and white water rafting or why not try something calmer like golf or bowling?

Creative painting – no prior knowledge needed. All you have to do is feel the joy of creating something to music. A session that is suitable for team building in staff welfare programs, for example, or as a kick-off activity. This can also be used as an energy booster.

Curling without ice – Instead of sliding stones on ice, you slide rubber discs with ball bearings on a hard, flat surface.

Sing out – Sing together with your colleagues and discover new sides to each other. We sing well-known songs in simple arrangements so that everyone can join in, whether they have choir experience or not.

Murder mystery – You are assigned a character that you role-play during the mystery, which takes place during dinner. Entertaining incidents occur throughout the evening.

Music quiz – music competition accompanied by a troubadour.

Poker and Blackjack – Who has the best poker face?

Test your senses – Use all your senses to answer questions where smell, taste, feeling and hearing come into play. The activity finishes with a drink that you have to identify.

Gastro-tour around Balingsholm – You’ll find something for both stomach and brain at four stations in our grounds: something to eat and drink together with three questions at each station to kick-start discussion. You start off at the first station with a glass of red wine and a glass of white together with your questions. You take your drinks to the next three stations, get into groups and answer questions while also tasting chocolate, meats and cheese.

Liquorice tasting – This is where you discover that liquorice is not just a kind of candy but is also a plant.

Cheese tasting – For those of you who want to enjoy different kinds of cheeses. This tasting includes a short history, information about production and ageing of cheese as well as what cheeses go with what. You’ll try both hard and soft cheeses along with different kinds of goat, pasteurised and blue cheeses.
