In 2004 Garlands began providing outdoor activities and has evolved to become one of the leading teambuilding event providers and event venues in the midlands today.
Based at Mythe Farm, Garlands Corporate is an event management company with a dedicated team that specialises in corporate events, team building and team development programmes. Our team of event professionals, activity instructors, facilitators and trainers thrive on making events come alive, it’s their passion. Our experienced facilitators can provide the skills and expertise to develop your leaders and improve team performance using psychometrics and team development models.
With 150 acres of countryside, a fabulous converted barn, training rooms, meeting rooms, breakout spaces, 3 event fields, Garlands Corporate can provide a huge range of activities, evening games, conference break challenges and team building exercises for a wide range of corporate events and conferences.
Mythe Farm has been owned and run by the Garland family for the last 50 years and we care about how we operate. Over the last 10 years we have planted over 20,000 trees, installed a solar PV system to generate all the electricity that we use and more, created an event space to an equivalent BREEAM ‘Good’ standard and we have also initiated a zero waste to landfill policy.
