Canford School Graduation Day

The end of June saw the end of the 2014 school year for Canford School in Dorset, which in turn meant their annual Speech Day and Graduation Ball.

Earlier this year we were approached by Canford School and asked if we could provide them with an overall event management service for the event which included items such as marquee, sound and lighting installations, entertainment booking, bar installation, photo booth hire, dodgems entertainment, ‘luxury loo’s’ and on site event management.

The speech day saw 1,800 students, parents, teachers and staff attending to hear speeches from the Headmaster Ben Vessey, the Head Boy and Girl, and the guest of honour Lord Dobbs of Wylye. There was then a quick turnaround of the marquee venue to become an evening bash for 500 guests for their graduation dinner, drinks and ball.

It was a fantastic day all round and a great opportunity for the parents to celebrate alongside their graduating children. During the evening there was some incredible entertainment including; stilt walkers, fire breathers, a magician, a juggler, bumper cars and the ever popular ‘The Brightside Band’, followed by Lee Evans DJ’ing the night away.

We also received some really positive feedback from the client and will look forward to working with them in the future –

“This is the first time that Canford School have worked with Seventa and our Summer Ball was the best one ever.  Seventa are incredibly professional, innovative and exceptionally easy to work with.  Nothing is too much trouble and we would not hesitate in using them again for future events.  Thank you for making our event such a memorable one.” Executive Assistant to the Bursar of Canford School.

Take a look at a few of the pictures we took throughout the day and evening..
