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.

In Pictures: The Blind Tigers Play Instore At Hackett London

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

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.

In Pictures: Grimm Entertainment for the Playboy Club's Halloween Bash

November 10, 2014

For the Playboy Club’s annual Halloween extravaganza, we were tasked with creating a wickedly fun night of entertainment – inspired by the surprisingly dark and morbid fairy tales curated by the Brothers Grimm – with a superb variety of custom-made performers and acts to ensure that this party was not only scary, sexy and downright fun, but also one worth writing about.

Following on the success of our previous Independence Day party which we worked to carefully create the entertainment for, we were even more liberal with our sinister setlist of petrifying performers which ranged from a roaming trio of “deathly bards” Ze Trio and party band Coverflow to a living blood-oozing statue of the long-haired legend Rapunzel, a scarily talented tap dancer and a magician…in werewolf’s clothing.
