Kicking off the summer event season for 2019, we recently travelled up to Harrogate to the Old Swan Hotel for a large scale corporate summer party, organised by our sister company Stormont London.
Although the weather was less than ideal, a large tipi was set up in the hotel garden to provide shelter from the rain and host over 200 guests for the company's annual summer party. As the theme was western and country this year, we provided a range of rustic pieces of furniture to help create a welcoming, authentic environment for the guests. These included vintage barrel tables, hay bales, rustic leather sofas and upcycled wooden tables and screens.
Keeping in line with the party's theme, a barbecue and food stalls were set up at the entrance to the marquee where guests got to enjoy some great food, from flame-grilled burgers to a whole rosted pig!
As Stormont London were providing entertainment all day long, we had to make sure to provide adequeate audio support and staging for the various performers, hosts and comperes throughout the event.
We also provided uplighters, fairy lights and festoon lighting around the marquee to add to the festival feeling.
Guests also had a chance to take pictures in a greenscreen photo booth that created old-timey western 'Wanted' posters of them as a fun little memento from the event.
As the main headline event, the Stormont team arranged for a surprise performance from one of the UK's top Dolly Parton impersonators, to make sure that the night ended with a proper bang!
The event turned out to be a huge success despite the unfortunate weather conditions, thanks to the joint efforts and tireless work of the Stormont and LEP teams.
