Team Building Venues: The Grand, Brighton

As you may have gathered from our Venue Profile series, we're pretty passionate about great venues here at CCC HQ. We love to keep up-to-date on all the best places to hold our team building events, wherever in the UK they may be, so that we can best advise our clients through our free venue-finding service. So when we received an email from the lovely folks at De Vere, titled simply 'The Grand Dame Rises', a prickle of excitement ran through us as we knew it could only mean one thing: the jewel in our home town's crown is back to her former glory.

The Grand, Brighton

The Grand

  • Complimentary Wi-Fi in all public areas and meeting rooms
  • Brand new spa, perfect for unwinding after your team building event

Why We Love It

We can be pretty biased when it comes to talking about our amazing home town of Brighton, but in this instance, it's entirely justified. Since beginning the refurbishment last year, De Vere have transformed this iconic piece of British history into a luxurious, opulent establishment that straddles the line between traditional and modern perfectly. The large, airy conference rooms are perfect for indoor team building events, and Brighton itself is the perfect backdrop for a corporate treasure hunt.

You may be visiting for business rather than pleasure, but The Grand allows you to blur the line between the two. Take advantage of the second-to-none business amenities that De Vere venues do so well, before relaxing in the spa or taking a stroll along the seafront - after all, why should the tourists have all the fun?

"The Grand has always been a CCC favourite, but the refurbishment has blown us all away - we'll be producing several team building events there this summer and we can't wait!"  - Ann Elcock, CCC Venue Co-ordinator

Sun, Sea and Sand for CCC at Yellow Wave Cafe

The CCC team are still finding sand in all sorts of places today after a fantastic day spent team building at the superb Yellow Wave Cafe in Brighton. CCC Team Building at Yellow Wave Cafe

Situated on the heart of Brighton Beach, Yellow Wave offers volleyball and beach sport facilities, as well as chilled out, refreshing, beachy vibes in their gorgeous Barefoot Cafe full of homemade goodies. It's an instant hit with everyone and has fast become one of our favourite home town venues.

Event Manager Zoe commented:

"With it's washed out decking and amazing chilled out atmosphere, this is one of the nicest places I've visited in Brighton. For clients it's a really unique venue experience because you can begin a Team Adventure from the cafe in the morning,  and then finish the day with a friendly volleyball match, followed by barbecue and drinks - all with a sea view!"

The CCC Team were treated to a mighty feast of a barbecue on our return from the event, followed by a team coaching session from one of the resident volleyball experts and of course, a few ciders in the sun - from some of the friendliest and most relaxed staff around.

BBQ at Yellow Wave Cafe Brighton

It's only a short walk from Yellow Wave to Brighton Pier and The Lanes but if you're feeling really indulgent, you can pop next door and hop on the famous Volk's Victorian Railway and enjoy a ride on the 'world's oldest operating electric railway'.

We will certainly be back (if only for their incredible smoothies) to spend some time enjoying our glorious city.
