On Saturday 28th January Eventwise welcomed 52 guests for ‘The Chase’. The event made use of the stunning grounds of Lucknam Park, a Bath country hotel set amongst 500 acres of parkland. Eventwise created a day jam-packed with bespoke team building activities designed to test guests decision making, communication and concentration.

 

On arrival guests were split into eight teams. Each team was provided with a Land Rover to help them get around during the day, and a GPS which guided them between each of their team-building challenges. We also provided all the essentials, from first aid kits to comforting flasks of hot chocolate to keep our teams nice and warm!

Guests took turns taking part in eight of our popular team-building challenges during their day’s adventure at Lucknam Park. Tasks included a ‘Drone Quiz’, where guests would need to control a drone, flying it over clues, to decipher all the required information to solve their puzzle.

 

After a competitive morning guests relaxed with lunch served in a tepee in the venue’s beautiful grounds. Before long it was time to get back on the road, and with plenty of time spent strategizing over lunch, our teams were ready to take on the competition!

Guests took part in traditional outdoor pursuits such as archery and clay pigeon shooting, as well as some country classics like Duck Herding, complete with obstacles for the ducks. More unusual activities included laser shooting, blindfolded driving and the ‘Powerturn’ which included guests negotiating an obstacle course in their twin-seater vehicle.

Once teams were chosen, guests began a relay challenge. Teams picked up fancy dress items along the way, as they danced along to disco music. Then it was time for disco dodgeball – that’s dodgeball, with added disco!

When a winner had been decided, it was the turn of the second two teams, before guests enjoyed a BBQ feast in the sunshine. Once everyone was refueled and raring to go, our team brought out ‘beer goggles’, encouraging guests to get involved in a mini race that soon got competitive.

It was then time for bubble football, a great team-building challenge which sees guests attempt a game of football from within a giant inflatable ball. The last person standing was our winner, and the rest of the audience found the game hilarious!

During spring 2011 a repeating valued charity client of ours – Helen & Douglas House – who wanted to stage a fundraising event, however they wanted to add a twist to it.  The charitable event had two objectives behind it, the first of course to raise a sufficient amount of money for the charity and the second objective was to create an event which had enough fun content to act as a thank you to the donors.

With this in mind, Ultimate Experience came back with a concept – this was to stage a taxi treasure hunt for the day, with the finish line being a seated dinner and charity auction. In order to make this event work, it was crucial to utilise three Concerto Group venues at that time, which helped keep the costs to a minimum. The event begun at Salter’s Hall for lunch and a briefing, before the attendees headed out on to the course.

The finishing line of the course was held at Wax Chandlers Hall, where clue packs were both collected and marked. After handing in their evidence, guests headed 100m down the road to Plaisterers’ Hall, to be amazed with a fantastic seated dinner provided by of course catering company, Create. Once dinner had been served and finished, guests then enjoyed the auction.

The bespoke four hour hunt took in many landmarks in and around the City; although it was a challenge it was fantastically received and approached with enthusiasm by everybody. Overall, Helen & Douglas House managed to raise over £150,000 on the day alone and the participants went home with smiles on their faces!

The timeless classic Les Misérables didn’t finish once the curtains had been closed, the celebrations continued to the after party which was held at Camden’s famous Roundhouse – a venue which has seen and hosted for some of the world’s most iconic musicians over the years. The theme for the evening was of course based around Les Misérables, with the dramatic main space taking a French theme for the evening, with authentic props from the film being displayed, creating extraordinary focal points.

Whilst guests enjoyed the fabulous venue and décor, they were soon to be even more amazed by the food they would be provided by the wonderful catering company, Create. There were ten food stalls which allowed guests to indulge and enjoy a huge range of cuisines and flavours, whilst canapes and bowl food were also available in case guests wanted a light bite. The canapes which were handed out during the event consisted of chicken and pousse ballotine wrapped in bayonne ham with a truffle cream sauce, a warm fig and Roquefort tart drizzled with a winter truffle honey and thyme, and beef tartar on brioche toast with quail’s egg gribiche.

Guests were also given the chance to enjoy hot bowl food, which comprised a mouth-watering menu of confit duck cassoulet with braised beans, sausage and crispy goose fat bread croutons, wild mushrooms and morels in cognac cream sauce with pomme mousseline and wilted pousse, and trout Niçoise with brioche crumbs.

The fun theming of the evening was also incorporated into the food stations available during the evening. These stations provided a huge range of culinary experiences, with French classics such as coq au vin, boeuf bourguignon, ratatouille and Toulouse sausage with lyonnaise potatoes all on offer. There was even a fromagerie station which displayed some of the finest French cheeses; comte, brie de meaux and Roquefort being just a few which made an appearance. Of course there was also a charcuterie station, which is important within any French marketplace and an indulgent dessert station which provided the perfect sweet treats to finish off a magnificent French feast.

There were also crêpes, crème pâtissière, Christmas compotes, tarte au citron with rosemary crème fraîche, mini mont blanc meringue kisses and macaroons to choose from Create satisfied the most discerning of sweet tooths!

Summer last year, guests of Cosmopolitan visited Ultimate Experience’s venue – The Artillery Garden at The HAC for a day of summer celebrations, all of which was sponsored by Surf.

As guests enjoyed basking in the sunshine in a private outside space in the middle of the City, they indulged in Gancia Prosecco, Zubrowka cocktails, Emmi CHOCO LAIT milk, Wheyhey ice-cream and Hotbox BBQ food. These delicious bites were given out to them in between watching the stunning fashion shows and getting beauty tips from the experts in the industry.

Famous beauty brand Rimmel was on hand applying beautiful shimmer tans and providing manicure services. Lee Stafford was in charge of styling guests’ hair and Suman Brows took care of the eyebrows. Last of all, guests were also given amazing goody bags from Freya Lingerie.

The night was captured with the help of a photo booth which everybody loved; the photo booth came complete with a topless Surf model and once guests had finished striking a pose, they headed to the stage where they would be given summer beauty tips from Fleur De Force. Once their knowledge of beauty tips had been topped up, guests then enjoyed a fashion show which has been styled by Cosmo’s Fashion Editor (with makeup from Mii Cosmetics).

The stage-section of the event came to an end after Dalton Wong and Kate Faithfull-Williams gave their inspiring talk about their book ‘The Feelgood Plan’. After this, it was then time to slap on some foil tattoos from Seekers of the Sun and to party the rest of the afternoon away to a fabulous set by Neev.

Dancing breaks were filled with eating candy floss and taking even more pictures in the loveable photo booth.

Sophie, Events and Sponsorship Executive said: “Thank you very much for being part of the first ever Cosmopolitan Summer Party, it was a huge success and one to remember! We have had some amazing feedback so far from attendees and brands involved.”

The festival was given its inspiration from the well-known Holi Festival of Colour, the ancient Hindu religious festival which was originally celebrated in South Asia, but has now been adopted by a range of countries.

The theming and creative directions during the event were led by Eventwise and FullCircle, whilst they were prioritized with this, Create covered the evening’s innovative menu. The end result of the event displayed a mixture of blinding colour, tastes and sound designed to re-present each of Diageo’s brands – and a truly individual bespoke event.

Guests didn’t need to wait to be wowed at this festival, instead this wow factor started very early on, with silt walkers dressed as birds of paradise greeting guests at the entrance of the the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington.

After guests were warmly greeted they would soon realise the excitement wouldn’t end there, this time guests would be amazed by the array of striking colours and décor displayed throughout the venue – setting the scene for the night ahead. Design features which were included were bright and bold – these were complimented by striking – oral displays and imaginative focal points.

Much of the evening was tailored to compliment both the event space and Diageo’s branding, which helped keep the guests guessing as they explored the museum’s famous galleries. Mask ensured continuity remained throughout the theming of the event, with each and every space being cloaked in bright, rainbow hues.

After walking through a bespoke sky of bird’s corridor, guests would find the gardens which had been transformed into an unforgettable festival and party space. With the help of exotic plants, bright canopies and luxurious furnishings a party paradise was created in the heart of Kensington. This was made even more exciting when the dazzling dance act performed.

The menu produced by Create was based around bold, fresh tastes and was served in true Holi Festival style – on striking, bright tableware. After guests indulged the delicious main course, they were invited into the ‘Sugar Factory’, where all their childhood favourites awaited.

Joining forces with Create and Fullcircle this event showcased the full might of the Concerto Group.

Theming and entertainment brought the atmosphere of summer festivals to life for this unique winter celebration at the Roundhouse. We brought the outside in with design features including hay bales, yurts and even portaloos which doubled as make-up stalls.

Setting the scene at the entrance to was a carpet of grass and bunting, which gave guests a taste of what to expect as they collected their lanyards from our grassy-green reception desk.

The event made full use of the venue’s impressive audiovisual facilities, using screens to play festival footage throughout the night, whilst the DJ got those feet moving on the dance floor. Lighting helped complete the look, cloaking the venue’s stairs in green. The main room took on lighter green and yellow colouring with the help of an LED Chandelier.

Guests got into the festival spirit with our wellie competition. Those looking for a little pampering could unwind with a massage or add a little sparkle to their ensemble with our glitter artists. Guests could even get a sneak peek at what the coming year would bring with a visit to the fortune teller.

No Christmas party is complete without indulgent menus, so guests were treated to all the festival favourites. Following a canapé reception main courses were served from street food stalls. Guests chose from gourmet burgers at the Brick Lane Burger Bar – the ultimate in urban junk food, Eight Hour Pulled Pork served from a bohemian-style stall, or noodles from Wok This Way. Those who fancied something sweet could then head over to the inflatable ice cream van for dessert.

Entertainment kept guests on their toes, with santa sumo suits, a rodeo reindeer, batak games and a high striker all on hand to test guests’ competitive streaks. Those wanting to hit the dance floor could head for the silent disco, or try their hand at singing with the Karavanaoke. There was also live music, courtesy of party band Madhen, a DJ, and indoor shishas for those who just wanted to relax and soak up the atmosphere.

And that makes it official – festivals aren’t just for summer! Contact us if you would like to arrange your own festival

For this dinner with a difference we took inspiration from the traditional pub, with pub-themed catering provided by Create Food & Party Design.

Tobacco Dock became ‘The Agency Arms’ for one night only, a top secret pub serving pub grub with a twist. The venue was fully themed for the occasion, with decor and furnishings from Fullcircle. Entertainment completed the theme, filling the venue with the sounds of the East End. Our team worked alongside Tobacco Dock’s in-house production company Visual Elements for all the lighting, sound and production.

Guests began with a drinks reception, complete with cocktails. Starters were served from food stalls, each themed around popular pub snacks. Visitors to the Fish Fountain were served tiny pint glasses of prawns, cockles and whelks, smoked mussels with vinegar shakers and East End favourite jellied eels. The Yorkshire Pudding Station offered freshly baked Yorkshires with a range of fillings. No pub grub is complete though without pie and mash – on this occasion mini beef cheek pies with mashed potato and parsley liquor sauce.

Dinner was called by a Pearly King & Queen, before guests were served a main course of oven-roasted fillet of sustainable haddock with a batter scrap crust served in traditional newspaper cones

Dessert encouraged guests to get involved as they constructed their own DIY Autumn trifle, with toppings including pumpkin custard, homemade honeycomb and freeze-dried berries.

Following dinner guests moved into the Vaults, where they were entertained by a DJ long into the night. The evening ended as all great nights at the pub do – with a kebab on the way home. Guests were offered a lamb kebab on leaving the venue, which was marinated in greek olive oil, oregano and garlic and served in flatbread with red cabbage tossed with lemon juice and almonds, tzatziki and watercress.
