Love Harriet & Team Laughtercise


Whether you’re looking for a unique hen do idea for your hen crew orΒ a corporate team building workshop for your team, a Laughtercise session is all about creating as many smiles and laughter in your group as humanely possible!

We’ve scoured the world for the best exercises, activities and games that bring out smiles and giggles.

We would love to tell you that we’ve invented loads of activities but we haven’t invented ANYTHING. We’ve taken the best that exists, combined it together and made it better…our very own original recipe.

Simple ideas, simple games, all facilitated expertly.

We deliver sessions in-person or online.

Is your room small? Is it large? Inside? Outside? We’ll be there! We will work around you.

For team building sessions, we can come to your office or away day location. For hen parties, we can come to your accommodation or a private room that you’ve booked.

πŸ“ Our Corporate Team Building Workshops vary from 10-minute energising conferences sessions to full away day sessions of 4hs

πŸ“ Our Corporate Wellbeing Workshops can vary in length from 1hr to 3hrs

πŸ“ Our Online Team Building Workshops can vary in length from 30mins to 1.5hrs

πŸ“ For online sessions, the attendee limit is 1000.

πŸ“ For in-person sessions, the only limit is how much room you have (the more the merrier!)

Our prices vary depending on the number of attendees, how long the session is for and where the session is held.

We can guarantee you this though…in terms of bang for buck, you’ll get a sonic boom πŸ’₯

Let’s get some time to discuss, get in touch πŸ˜€

Our Corporate Team Building Workshops have been described as β€˜the most fun I’ve ever had at work’ by Amazon employees and in a recent NHS study, 77% of NHS session attendees reported feeling less stressed after their Laughtercise session.
