Corporate fun days

New to the Museum... The Apprentice Challenge

The Apprentice Challenge team building day at the Folk Museum is a fantastic opportunity to give your staff a very fun & creative environment to connect with colleagues from across the organisation while participating in a popular team challenge in your very own 1900’s town.

Based on BBC 1’s ‘The Apprentice’ each Apprentice style challenge is bespoke and created with your corporate objectives in mind. Your staff will be split into teams who will be racing through the cobbled streets of Ballycultra Town and rural area in an effort to claim the coveted title of Lord Cultra’s business partner.

The format for the day will be based on what your objectives are for the day, we can relate the challenge to your particular industry and can accommodate from 50 to 150 people per day. We would expect the challenge to last approximately 3 hours in total.

Cultra Manor will provide a great base for the day and a wonderful lunch venue with the option of finishing a great day with a BBQ and band on the terrace.

For further information or to make a booking please contact our events team on 028 9039 5108 or email events@nmni.com.
