Derwent Pursuits have been organising special events for the young and not so young for over twenty years. Today we could be providing a treasure hunt birthday party in canoes, tomorrow we may be managing an annual conference for a blue chip company with 150 delegates arriving from all over the world.

Whatever your aims and objectives, Derwent will provide you with an event that achieves your goals. Each event is designed especially for you and never repeated. We listen to you, we discuss your needs, then we provide innovative solutions to fulfil your requirements.

Our philosophy is to make each learning opportunity fun and memorable within a safe but challenging environment. If we are able to 'switch on one light bulb' about life or work, and if you came away saying “ah ha ! Now I understand !” then we feel that we are being effective.


If you are planning an Away Day, Team Build, Product Launch, Corporate Event or Conference then visit our Corporate Events and Event Activities pages to see what we can provide to make your event the success you're looking for.

If you are looking for Adventure activities like canoeing and climbing, then tour around the exciting challenges that the Peak District and Derbyshire have to offer. The Derwent Pursuits team can deliver programs for 8 to 80 year olds, novice to expert, on a 1:1 basis or a coach load at a time !

If you have a specific business need involving personal or team development, requiring hands on, pro-active learning outside of the working environment then explore our Development training page. These programs are designed in consultation and partnership with the client.
