Christmas at the HAC
Bringing a taste of New Orleans to EC1
Working alongside our strategic partners, the Ultimate Experience we were tasked with the redesigning of the theme and concept for a stunning HAC Marquee, perched in the picturesque grounds of the Honourable Artillery Garden. The aim was for a classic and timeless feel suitable for the many varied events they deliver there night to night.
After extensive consultation and pre production, the design team came up with and executed a stunning ‘New Orleans’ installation complete with bespoke bars and facades, oak barrels, neon dipped candelabras multicoloured festoon lighting and oversized re-purposed cable drums reels.
Production beefed up the light and the sound across the venue producing a newly reworked DJ box to really bump the DBs and also constructing a 4ft circular stage working within the clients budget to produce maximum impact at minimum cost.
The entertainment department completed the team effort with a bespoke stage show full of dancers, musicians and acrobats, a 5 piece trad jazz walkabout act, a photo booth and character actors to welcome guests on arrival. The package was rounded off with a barn storming resident DJ and 9 car indoor dodgem track for after dinner bumping.
