Wow, what another great year we’ve had in the wonderful world of Firebird events!
During the course of 2018 we’ve had the pleasure of producing some absolutely amazing events in some extraordinary venues. We have really enjoyed providing services for our well-loved repeat clients and have also enjoyed ‘wowing’ new clients and venues - showing them what we do best! As 2018 is coming to an end we thought we would take a look back at some of our favourite events of the year…
Colour Trophy L’Oréal Tour
In April we were honoured to produce the 3 week long L’Oréal Colour Trophy tour – an incredible setup in 9 regions to celebrate the very best in hair styling at the world's longest running live hairdressing competition. We supplied a full projection set, staging, an amazing lighting show, surround sound, bespoke dressing tables and furniture, and full content and stage management. Our team of 12 dedicated staff worked tirelessly throughout the complex shows and rose to the challenge… We received outstanding feedback: “Firebird have brought a new level of expectation to production. Your team are second to none – committed, fun and always prepared to go the extra mile.”
Fun-Packed Family Fun Day
Back in May (when the sun was still shining!!) we were delighted to work with one of our repeat clients, Huntswood, who hosted a family fun day for 600 guests. Every detail was catered for including a land train to transport guests, mix and mingle acts including balloon modellers and jugglers, a traditional carousel, waltzer, creche, side stalls such as hook-a-duck, mobile farm, ice cream vans, popcorn cart, jazz quartet, Punch and Judy and many more attractions too - there really was something for everyone! The event was a huge success and this style of celebration provided employees and their families with time to socialise and have fun, taking part in what took their fancy, or just relaxing in the sunshine… To find out more please head over to our blog page – FAMILY FUN DAY BLOG Fun Day images courtesy of - www.jonbradley.co.uk
Our Own ‘Firebird Bake That’
Back in August we held our annual off-site event for the Firebird team and alongside some ‘serious stuff’, we took some time out to inject a bit of fun and healthy competition into proceedings… We got stuck in, creating signature bakes, technical challenges and showstoppers, in our very own ‘Bake That’ team building session! Ian, Bill, Antonetta and Nina ‘wowed’ with their baking prowess, creating coffee macaroons, choc chip cookies and a Summer Time Meadow Showstopper featuring hand crafted sugar flowers (and Firebird Ted of course!) and were crowed the winners! Not bad for two hours work… If you fancy taking on the ‘Bake That’ challenge with your team you can find out more about this activity here – BAKE THAT INFORMATION
Music Festival - ‘Music Under the Hangar’
Back in September, we had the privilege of producing an awesome music concert ‘Music Under the Hangar’ for another one of our lovely repeat clients. Alongside all the staging, sound and onsite management we also sourced a diverse array of acts to perform throughout the event including; Fully Funktional as the headline act, a Beatles tribute act, Saxophonist, Samba drummers and dancers, a soul band and Spark - an exciting and colourful drumming act complete with LED lights and infectious rhythm!! Our client’s feedback was amazing – “It was phenomenal from start to finish. You did an absolutely amazing job - it was so much fun and a great success!” Watch this space, as a full blog on the event will be featured in the New Year…
Enchanted Forest Showcase
Last but not least, we definitely can’t miss featuring our ‘very own’ bespoke Enchanted Forest themed event that we held in October to showcase our party services, to a selection of hand-picked agencies and venues - WOW what a night it was! Held at the stunning Coworth Park in Ascot, the event was a rather intimate affair for 80 guests, including a drinks reception, sumptuous dinner and of course some fabulous entertainment! We really wanted to showcase ‘what we can do’ and the format of the evening allowed us to network with those that perhaps didn’t know the full extent of our services, with a member of the Firebird team each hosting a table over dinner. We LOVED every minute in our Enchanted Forest and really didn’t want the evening to end… To find out more head over to our blog page here – ENCHANTED FOREST BLOG or view our video of the event PARTY HIGHLIGHTS VIDEO
There have been many more memorable events this year, but this should give you a little insight into what we’ve been up to… The past month has of course provided the usual festive craziness, so we are certainly in a Christmassy mood! Please note that our offices will be closing from midday on Friday 21st December for the Christmas period and will re-open on Tuesday 2nd January 2019.
We hope that you all have a wonderful festive period and a very happy and prosperous 2019!
