31 December 2013
Friday 13th December proved to be one of the busiest nights of Firebird’s year, a whopping 31 Christmas events took place that day - thankfully our clients aren’t a superstitious lot!
This December was our 2nd busiest month ever in Firebird’s history - we produced and managed 239 events (and entertained over 80,000 people!)
December started off with a celebrity Christmas event, at a top secret private members club in Central London. Guests were served shots by our Sexy Santa’s and enticed to play on our casino tables by glamorous croupiers. At the Hilton London Syon Park Hotel, our guests were treated to a surprise street dance performance after their desserts by The Plague, the dancers performed dressed as festive elves, which helped to incorporate the client’s ‘festive fun’ design brief.
Award winning Hedsor House played host to a top corporate client of ours too - Firebird provided full sound and lighting production at this stunning 100-acre private estate.
On the 21st December our production crew, events team and truck had a 7 hour drive to Newcastle to a VIP party at the Close House Hotel. We successfully provided all pre and onsite event management, sound/lighting production and entertainment including Matt Cardle, the winner of X Factor 2010, along with Stavros Flatley and Signature from Britain’s Got Talent. The client said it was the ‘best party they have ever had’, so we now have the challenge of exceeding it for their summer party!
On our teambuilding front, a lucky group of corporate clients enjoyed some post conference fun and games at Pennyhill Park, our simulators, laser clay shooting and crazy golf, were all set up outside, and with lighting and heaters provided by Firebird they were able to enjoy the great outdoors without getting too chilly!
We had a great opportunity to meet prospective brides and grooms-to-be along with showcasing our stunning black LED starlit dance floor and LED poseur tables at the Elvetham wedding fair, which add a great modern twist and ‘wow factor’ to weddings held at this historic venue.
The recently released Great Gatsby film, based on the original F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel saw the Roaring 20's style being our most popular theme by far this Christmas season. This theme, along with the ever popular magical Winter Wonderland, chosen by Wentworth Golf Club for their New Year’s Eve party this year, really showcase our staff’s creativity and attention to detail throughout the planning process, and of course on the day itself.

Talking of New Year’s Eve, we also provided our services to many other venues to welcome in 2014 including; Maxims Casino (London), Palm Beach (London), The Aviator, Hilton Syon Park, Savill Court Hotel, Great Fosters, Barnett Hill plus two celebrity private parties at their houses.
December has welcomed our newest team member Neil Hadaway, who has been appointed Warehouse Manager. Neil has joined Firebird from a very exclusive marquee company, adding yet another string to our bow.
It’s been very busy month and all the team are looking forward to a few days of well-deserved rest before we take on 2014!!
