Client Vision:

Our client asked us to create a WOW factor themed event for their annual staff party. As well as theming that left guests in awe, they wanted a venue that would compliment the decor and be just as special. The venue had to be striking and able to comfortably hold 200 people for a dinner in addition to providing space for the various activities and entertainment. Our client asked us to merge all of these factors and create an event that guests would be talking about for months afterwards!


Our Solution:

After providing our client with several venue options, including a wide range of quality hotels and unique options, they chose the Leeds Victoria Town Hall. With its original decor featuring Corinthian columns in marble imitation and elaborate wall and ceiling plasterwork it provides a beautiful setting for any event.

After deciding on the Chocolate Factory theme, we proceeded to transform the hall. From the dramatic entrance way; featuring golden gates and stone pillars you were brought into the main hall where, using our custom-made backdrops, we ensured that every area of ‘eye-line’ wall was made to look as though you were inside a fantasy chocolate factory. We partnered this with strategically placed props and dramatic lighting to ensure there was a sense of magic and mystery throughout.

We provided creative cocktails, a chocolate fountain and a range of sweet based games to keep the guests entertained. Greeted by Mr Willy Wonka himself, guests were treated to a sumptuous 3 course meal. As the night progressed, we brought live entertainment in the form of a gymnastic dance duo, Oompa Loompas and a full live band to ensure that the guests were up and dancing late into the night.
