November 21, 2014


For an autumnal garden-inspired event at the Tate Britain, we gave guests a naturally warm welcome as we provided a troupe of highly talented ballerinas to perform as proceedings got underway.

The event was themed primarily around the shift of the late-year season as dusky summer evenings give way to the oncoming chill of autumn nights – with the troupe of ballerinas acting as muses each adorned with decorative headpieces made of fallen leaves and delicate, flowing sashes.

Just like clockwork, it's that time again where we start buying copious amounts of canned snacks, fill our freezers with frozen party food and moan about the new Band Aid song and the fact it's gotten cold (again) – but who cares?

November 17, 2014


Last weekend we lent a helping hand to British clothes brand Hackett London as they promoted their stores in Regent Street & Covent Garden by enlisting influential jazz trio The Blind Tigers. The trio played for customers and onlookers alike as they passed by the store to get a good look at the brand’s latest offering.

Social media helped the word spread fast of the label’s weekend experience and particularly detail-oriented readers might even recall we did the same for the brand this time last year as they celebrated their place within British men's fashion and all things 1920s London.

If you’d like to learn more about how we helped the brand reach even more people, just read on after the break for more details and information about the activation.... "Read More

In Pictures: Wandering Hands And Spark! LED Drummers At 155 Bishopsgate

November 13, 2014


For a corporate event at the stunning venue 155 Bishopsgate situated within the pulsing heart of the City of London, we called upon the smooth sounds of musical strollers Wandering Hands and Spark! – a collection of high energy, percussion pounding LED drummers – to really bring out the ahem fun in this function.

As a modern, sophisticated venue with a great deal of open space, 155 Bishopsgate was an ideal place for these two acts that, at their heart, require just a bit of breathing space to really shine. Wandering Hands as a perfect complement for the drinks reception helped warm up the crowd with their playful musicality before Spark! performed their sit as the evening rose to its crescendo.
