We all know of the typical Christmas events: German Markets, Santa’s Grottos, and various ‘winter wonderland’ set-ups. But what of the more alternative events that are offered to celebrate yuletide across the country? The ideas below would make ideal corporate team building ideas for those that favour doing something a little unusual with their team.

BRISTOL – The Enchanted Christmas Trail
