October is here, the Firebird team and Ted have said a fond farewell to British Summer time and we’re now full steam ahead for the festive season!
We’ve become a recommended supplier to the Monkey Island Hotel, in Bray-on-Thames, provided our conference production services to TAG Farnborough Airport and have worked alongside Sir Ian Botham, the former England Test cricketer and Test team captain!
We produced an ‘Around the World’ themed party at the Radisson Blu Heathrow Hotel for 250 people, the room was themed to represent over 25 countries and incorporated some of the best entertainment acts in UK, see the video here!
Another one of our highlights this month was a VIP Bat Mitzvah at a top London venue, the Louise Blouin Foundation. Our party planners produced an amazing setting with flowers, entertainment, stilt walkers, lighting, sound, dance floor, toastmaster and DJ. See our video, of what the client described as “simply magical.”
By far our most exciting event of the month was working with the pop legend Billy Ocean at a prestigious black tie charity event near Ascot. Firebird provided all pre and onsite event management as well as all the technical production and engineers for Billy Ocean and his musicians. For our onsite team and engineers it was honour to work with such an amazing artist who has sold over 30 million records since 1972 – amazing!
Staffing wise, we’ve welcomed on board two new starters, Dave Brown, who has just finished his degree in Sound Engineering and Adam Fathers who has moved from the sound equipment manufacturer, Numark to our technical department ready for the busy winter period!
