Teambuilding!

Fancy something a little different in your office lunch break?! If you are based in London or Glasgow, we can come armed with ukuleles for a one hour team building/wellbeing session. Expanding the mind through learning a new instrument, and sharing making music together are a couple of obvious outcomes; by far the most significant though, is that it is FUN!

£500 or more
