Team Building Challenges

The 'Billy Connolly' Challenge


Sir Billy Connolly is arguably Glasgow’s most famous son. The internationally famous comic is loved the world over and nowhere more so than in his beloved hometown of Glasgow where he is literally a legend in his own lifetime.

Affectionately known as 'The Big Yin', his stand up comedy has had audiences belly laughing for 5 decades.

This is a fantastic themed treasure hunt style event, either on foot, on the subway, with black cabs or, if budget allows, with our fantastic fleet of Land Rover Defenders and kilted Adventure Guides.

There are traces of 'The Big Yin' and his comedy all over this fine city and teams thoroughly enjoy discovering them! 

We have two slightly different versions; one for locals and one for visitors to Glasgow. Guests will discover all that Glasgow is famous for, discovering all of the major landmarks and performing our hilarious Billy themed photo challenges along the way! 

Sir Billy Connolly has spoken publically of his ongoing struggle with Parkinsons Disease. 10% of the cost of every Sir Billy Connolly Challenge will be donated to Parkinsons UK, to help others coping with Parkinsons. 


We usually run this fantastic new challenege for up to 25 guests from the cool function space in our office in Finnieston. For larger groups we use city centre venues.
