Past adventures

in the land of PartyGeek

South Coast, Secret Venue

Theme: Día de Muertos, “The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.”

After journeying by carousel, guests discovered the path their evening would take via the tarot cards presented to them in our soothsayer’s layer. Their journey found them within specially created Escape Rooms, attempting to tie together the story thread of Frida Kahlo's lost diaries. Our tasting menu ended with a (Mexican chili infused) Devon ice cream and chocolate fountain, alongside freshly cooked (non chili infused!) artisan churros.

Being locked in a room with magicians, actors and a face-painting artist was a bit crazy! But also rather fun.

The Lost Garden of England

Theme: Twilight Festival, 'Violent delights have violent ends'

Resurrecting a connection with nature that has all but disappeared, our immersive garden party started by exploring a purpose built, site-specific maze fashioned from the stories of local myths where our guest geeks foraged for their first dinner course. A guest’s talent for axe throwing then decided which cuts they received from the charcoal roasted hog, before dessert arrived via miniature hot air balloon. A festival of lights erupted at twilight, culminating in the finishing moments of the summer solstice.

Awesome collection of bands and a great series of surprises throughout - I’ve never been lost in a night like that before. Also, turns out I’m awesome at throwing an axe!

King's College London Summer Ball

Theme: Parade's End (Novel/BBC Drama), 'This, Tietjens thought, is England!'

Working in the wake of the BBC production, we used the largest Palladian façade in Europe as our venue to recreate the WWI world of author Ford Madox Ford. With each visitor receiving a personalised letter from one of the characters upon arrival, this first clue led them on an evening of discovery with of our cast. Their adventure included a theatrical tour of the building and it's private art gallery, as well as a Bright Young Things inspired dance that culminated in a Tandem Battle by performers and guests across the worlds largest military parade ground.

Never seen the series/read the book but might now. Loved how they linked the novel, their story and the history of this amazing building - great evening.
