October has been a particularly exciting month for Firebird, as we celebrated our 15th birthday!
For the whole month the events team have been busy organising the final touches for our birthday party, as well as managing their own busy workloads! We wanted the party to be a massive thank you to our clients and suppliers for their loyalty over the last 15 years and was an amazing night! Find out what entertainment we had and take a look at a selection of photos from our party in our blog post.
We would also like to congratulate Paul Zerdin, who is a brilliant ventriloquist we have worked with for a number of years, as he recently won America’s Got Talent! As a result, he has secured himself his own show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, congratulations Paul!
One of our first events of the month was a full on team building afternoon at Windsor Racecourse. The guests took part in duck herding, axe throwing and falconry and they had a school sports day section where they could let their competitive sides show! To finish off the day they held a horse racing finale complete with wooden horses!
Two weeks later we were involved with a team building activity on the opposite end of the scale - The Thriller Experience. Our guests were at The Runnymede Hotel and were taught the infamous Thriller routine by our choreographer, before being let loose on the costumes and make up to help transform themselves into zombies! It’s such a great event to bring people together and the guests had such a laugh throughout the day.
We were part of some really exciting Corporate parties this month; one party we loved was at the Assembly Rooms in Bath. They had a great 80’s themed photo booth, and an iPad caricaturist who supplied the guests with some brilliant souvenirs to take home. The most popular entertainment of the night was most definitely the Dance Heads. Guests are enveloped in a green screen with just their heads showing, which are then super-imposed on professional dancers' bodies while they sing along to the songs of their choice!
We provided full production for an awards night at AXA Wealth, held at their offices. We supplied them with a red carpet, to make the event feel extra special. We also provided LED Cube Seats, LED Poseur Tables, a white starcloth backdrop and red uplighters for their chill out space.
One of the most exciting events we organised this month was a party for the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, held in Liverpool. They had an internal dance competition for which we provided the compere and they had the incredibly talented Vincent and Flavia from ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ perform a routine and have a meet and greet with the guests. It was an amazing evening and the atmosphere was buzzing!
