Event Format

Country Pursuits is a wonderfully flexible team building event, with many potential elements dependent on available time.
As well as being flexible it’s also exciting and fascinating in equal measure providing thrills and teaching skills.
It’s the corporate event that provides the opportunity to get up close and personal to birds of prey. It’s the corporate event that may open up the historic and specialist world of archery. It may even be the corporate event that enables you to travel back in time, and experience 19th Century military life! Now you have a taste of the possibilities, you’ll want to learn more….

Axe Throwing

Throwing axes have been used since prehistoric times and were widely used in the middle ages by foot soldiers. Fast forward and in the 21st Century axe throwing is a recognised sport, and clubs for practice and competition are multiplying.
Now you can practice this ancient skill, with qualified instruction, the best equipment and in a safe environment. This team building event provides the opportunity to learn many new skills. Who knows axe throwing maybe your next new hobby!

Clay pigeon shooting

Say country sports and the first response of many people will be clay pigeon shooting. If you’re not familiar with this sport and it sounds a little wild, fear not the “pigeons” are made of clay. The guns are real though, and under the guidance of highly experienced instructors, you’ll learn how to safely handle, load and shoot.
Once you’ve mastered the required basic skills, you’ll smoothly move on to shooting at the clays. With further expert instruction, you’ll soon be blasting them out of the sky. This is a fiery and exciting team building event at its best.


Over 17,000 years old, archery is another sport steeped in history you can experience on this outdoor team building activity.
With expert tuition, you’ll be instructed in all of the skills and techniques that comprise this ancient craft. You’ll be amazed how quickly they can be learned, before long you’ll be notching up high scores, and competing as a team.


The ancient art of falconry. Many of us have marvelled at it during country shows or game fairs, but few get the experience up close. This team building event will change all that. You’ll have beautiful birds of prey launched from your arm, and return, all under the watchful gaze of an experienced falconer. This is the stuff of once in a lifetime experiences.

Duck Herding

The saying goes that a dog is a man or woman’s best friend. Words that were never truer in this fascinating and hilarious outdoor team building activity. You will be introduced to your highly experienced shepherd. In turn, she will introduce you to three or four beautiful Border Collie sheepdogs. Your shepherd, assisted by the dogs, will then introduce you all to a herd of most athletic Indian Runner ducks. She will then demonstrate the ease with which the team of dogs and shepherd calmly move the ducks from one pen to another. She will then arm you with a shepherds crook and hand over to you! And that’s where the fun starts! Yet another amazing experience in this fabulous corporate event.

Muskets and Mortars

Just when you thought you’d seen and experienced everything! Blink and you’ll believe you’ve been teleported back over 200 years to the time of Wellington and Napoleon. Sharpe with Sean Bean before your eyes. Under the protective cover of an authentic 19th-century campaign tent, you will be instructed in the skills of musketry. You will learn about the Firelock Musket, cartridges, and powder. Then you’ll fire at targets, guided by an instructor in full authentic Battle of Waterloo uniform, complete with clay pipe! Just when you thought it couldn’t get more exciting a replica 13-inch Land Mortar with rubber cannonballs will be introduced. If you think the muskets made smoke and noise, you ain’t seen nothing yet! This is some outdoor team building activity!
