The Bond experience at Blenheim Palace

The Bond experience at Blenheim Palace

Location: Blenheim Palace

Duration: Half Day (approx.4hrs) 

Type of Event: Team Building

Event Brief

Set within the stunning grounds of Blenheim Palace, delegates will be taught all the
necessary skills to turn them into “00” agents with a licence to kill - or thrill! The activities will be a variety of spy training challenges ranging from code breaking and defeating laser alarm systems, to sniper shooting and observation tasks.

The emphasis will be on creating a great fun experience for the entire group whilst in a safe and controlled environment where delegates are encouraged to participate at their own pace and within their own limitations. Each team will be competing against one another as they take part in their various training zones.

Logistics & Timings

After the group have received their briefing from “Empire 1”, they will be broken down into smaller teams and then rotate around the different activity zones located within the Palace grounds. “Bond girls” will be on hand to help guide the delegates to their training zones. Teams will be met at their training zones by “Marlborough” agents who will help with their training!

Once teams have completed all their individual assignments they will return to their briefing room. There will be six different activity zones for the teams to complete, with each activity zone lasting approx. 30mins. This will allow a total event duration of approx. 4hrs including initial briefing and prize giving and awards. The delegates will be split into teams with the teams being allocated to each training zone.
