About Us | Peppermint

Where it all started

In 1996, Alex Brooke and Adam Hempenstall met whilst at University in Oxford, where they both promoted student events. After graduating, they spent the next 5 years running several record labels and a music promotions business in London next door to Pete Waterman’s famous Hit Factory Vineyard studios in London Bridge. 

Peppermint Events Founders

In 2003, they formed Peppermint Events to deliver fresh event concepts and high quality bars at outdoor events. Peppermint originally toured the Mint Group’s Infernos brand, to Henley Regatta and Cowes Week where it remained for nine years. Together in 2004, Peppermint and the Mint Group produced the first ever Lovebox festival on Clapham Common.

Adam and Alex continued their work at summer sports events and began to target boutique festivals in 2005 – identifying a gap in the festival bars market, to deliver quality and choice.

Peppermint now services over 40 events every year, primarily delivering premium bar solutions to one day concerts and festivals. Over the last 13 years Peppermint has developed long-standing client relationships with the likes of AEG Live and Live Nation and working at events that include British Summer Time Hyde Park, The Rugby World Cup, The Commonwealth Games and Henley Royal Regatta.
