The brief: World cup party with the essence of Brazil!

Colourful, flavoursome and a whole lot of fun! All day and night World cup party, with music, food and drinks festival for 350 guests, featuring a fusion of English and Brazilian themes.

The event

Brazilian carnival dancers perfroming in road in front of classic cars for world cup party

Theme and design: On a 15 acres site the event took shape with a huge duo span marquee, 2 x concert stages, cocktail bars, stall food, carnival dancers, a fantastic line up of bands and fair ground during the day. The evening brought the guests inside the marquee which was styled around a luxury sports bar with TV screens on all walls and drinks being served from a central island bar. The food took a turn towards contemporary English flavours, live music leading up to the live football match with the night finished with a swanky nightclub and DJ.
