30 September 2014
This month has been one of our busiest of the year so far, we’ve produced some very exciting events, there is so much to tell you about…
The beginning of the month started with raft building and dragon boat racing at Horseshoe Lake in Hampshire, it was a drizzly day but once everyone had their wet suits on they didn’t notice! We saw some of the best amateur-adverts ever produced at a filming day at The Grand Eastbourne this month, zebras featured heavily in the adverts to reflect the company’s brand. The adverts were shown after dinner followed by a lavish awards ceremony, dinner and disco – a great way to round off the event! Savill Court was the location for a conference, team building and party this month. After a morning conference the guests were welcomed outside to the Money Bonanza arena where their teams went head to head to compete for as much fun money as possible! The guests then enjoyed dinner in the Great Hall and enjoyed singing along with our Karaoke band Rockaoke!
We’ve been on the road this month with another one of our regular clients, for an Investment proposition launch. Church House in Westminster was the venue for their main launch and the set up looked extremely smart. One of our very loyal clients held their conference at the Millennium Hotel London Mayfair this month, where Firebird were producing the set and production elements.
Farnborough International Airport hosted a family fun day this month which had a face painter, climbing wall, surf simulator, bungee running and a circus workshop, a fantastic day out was had by all! At the end of the month, we provided a fun day alongside the British Gas Swim Britain day at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire which was a great success.
One surprise party this month was at The Berkley in Knightsbridge. We provided StringMania the female string quartet, saxophonist player, mini black grand piano and Get Funked the function band which made for a fantastic evening of entertainment. We also had the pleasure of producing an afternoon tea dance for a 60th birthday party at The Elvetham, the music choice was ballroom, 60’s and 70’s!
We have been involved in 25 weddings in September, on the first Saturday of the month the team were providing lighting and sound at the stunning Northbrook Park in Farnham which looked fantastic.
After 9 months in the planning, 6 event managers, 4 crew members and 350 guests from one of our corporate clients, we jetted off to Ibiza for closing week, for a 3 day event staying at The Hard Rock Hotel. The first day saw the arrival of half of the guests, the event management team welcomed every guest individually and provided them with information and welcome packs for their stay. Once all of the guests had arrived on the second day they got together for a ‘white’ party, guests enjoyed a drinks reception at the Hard Rock’s private beach club before boarding a boat for an evening boat party entertained by CJ the saxophonist. The following morning the guests had a 2 hour conference and then headed off to Ibiza Old Town for some shopping and a trip to the water park. That evening we exclusively hired Bambuddah an open air restaurant, where guests enjoyed a 7 course meal while being served champagne by the Ibiza Angels. It was a great few days and delegates certainly enjoyed their stay – what a fabulous way to reward hard working staff for all their efforts.
the runnymede-on-thames held their wedding showcase on the 14th of this month, where we provided a discotheque, uplighters, dance floor, table centres and chair covers. We were also at The Aviator which is just down the road from our offices for their wedding showcase, one of our DJ’s Damian was there to exhibit our discotheque!
Lastly we’d like to thank Wentworth Golf Club, who invited us, to join their events team for dinner this month. We were very spoilt with champagne, wine and a 3 course dinner - the food was exquisite and we all had a fabulous time!
