15 Aug Going The Extra Mile…
The Seven Events team are fans of festivals and drawing to the end of the festival season we are reflecting on a festival favourite, Secret Garden Party. Summer festivals come in all shapes and sizes, but standing above from the rest Secret Garden Party can teach us lots in terms of production and going that extra mile to exceed expectations.
At a festival where there is one crew to every two paying guests there are things to see and do around each corner and up each tree. Alice in Wonderland keyholes leading to hidden woodland stages, portaloo tunnels to a field of sunflowers, a wrestling ring for dance-offs, the annual Big Burn fireworks display, a floating stage accessible only by boat, and a Holi festival-esque colour fight… this really is a serious party!
Any event from a drinks reception to a festival, are all about a journey and far too often the finishing touches are deemed unimportant or not considered due to tight budgets. Secret Garden Party is the ultimate journey from start to finish, and teaches us that you can be creative with those finishing touches and still have a huge impact. Guests should leave any event with a happy memory and this can be simply achieved, from an unusual arrival to experimental canapés to surprise performances… so let us sprinkle some Secret Garden Party glitter on your corporate events.
