Drum Cafe are the worlds’ leaders in Team Building interactive drumming sessions for Conferences and Events. Team building activities need to be a combination of ice breakers for meetings and team training for delegates. Team building using drum workshops have been used by Drum Cafe since 1998 . Our Drum Cafe UK office runs out of London but has delivered events across the UK. Whether its a drumming workshop in Birmingham or a Boomwhackers product launch in Bristol , Drum Cafe can deliver a corporate activity or Human resource training idea anywhere. We have done 40,000 African Drum Workshops and team building exercises in 56 countries . Whether its a staff conference idea or a team away day , an ice breaker for meetings or a serious message filled leadership training programme, Drum Cafe have the experience to deliver this for you .

African Drumming is the most ancient form of Team building . Drumming for weddings or celebrations or community gatherings were all team building activities on some level . A drum session in a tribal village acted as an ice breaker and a team building exercise simultaneously.

Today , for corporate events or private party entertainment or even intensive team training activities, drum workshops again have become humans way of uniting. When a company is looking for a conference activity for a product launch , the goal must always be to create a fun group activity as well as a powerful stage performance. African Drum performances are not always interactive ,and can purely be to create a ambience at Corporate Conference Kick off , or after lunch as an energiser or during dinner as a kind of after dinner speaker .
