Bournemouth 7s is the world’s largest music and sports festival. Thousands of people flock to the event every year to party to live music, sample good food and to watch and participate in an eclectic line-up of sports games. The organisers wished to bring something new to the festival for the crowd to enjoy, so we collaborated with them to launch an exciting cocktail garden.
Our team was responsible for planning the overall logistics of the cocktail garden, so we had several meetings to carefully plan the infrastructure and create the theme for this unique social area.
To serve up our cocktails, we created a custom shipping container bar. We delivered the container bar to site and used a variety of props to decorate it, signage for menus and giant light up COCKTAIL marquee letters, which illuminated the space at night!
Once the container bar was in place, we furnished the event space with props and furniture. We used flowers to create colour, white picket fencing to create exclusivity and rustic wooden furniture to complement the theme. The event space was completed with 100 metres of festoon lighting. We managed the area over the festival and provided staff throughout the weekend that served up a selection of delicious cocktails to keep festivalgoers refreshed.
We successfully transformed an area of a field into a vibrant cocktail garden party! We have hosted the garden party for Bournemouth 7s for two years in a row – keep your eyes peeled to see what’s next!
