British Airways Flying Start Ball 2017

Our team had the honour of creating an exciting new theme for the annual British Airways Flying Start Ball 2017.  This year we created a magical Alice in Wonderland concept.

 

The Theming

Where to begin??  For this, we provided bespoke, themed Alice LED Table Centres, Red and Black Wall and Ceilling Draping, Giant themed props including Tweedle-dee and Tweedle-Dum, Oversized Teacups and the Queen of Hearts.  We also styled the Doubletree by Hilton Glasgow central with Grass Walkways, Grass Arches and Pixel Post and Rope.

The Entertainment

The entertainment kicked off with a special performance by the Scottish Rockettes (along side some of our props!), the event was then hosted by the lovley Colin Cloud.  DJ Gary Spence and Paul Harper also performed on the night, alongside X-Factors Fleur East.  The band SHEB closed the evening off with some fantastic songs!

The Evening

In the evening, the guests danced the night away on our LED black and white star-lit dance floor and posed infont of our customised Magic Mirror photo station.  There was also an incredible magician circulating around the guests, leaving them speechless at his tricks!

The Fundraising

Our latest introduction to the Scottish Events Industry, Bid-In silent auction technology raised a whopping £10,000.  The evening as a whole raised over £45,000 for the important charity, Flying Start.  Flying start is a global charity partnership between British Airways and Comic Relief.  Their aim is to help tackle poverty in the communities which they fly to through raising funds.

 

Its always an exciting event for us to work on, and some of our team were also able to attend the fantastic evening.

In 2016 we launched our Dream Circus theming at the Flying Start ball, this year (2017) was Alice In Wonderland… any ideas for 2018??
