NOTTINGHILL CARNIVAL

In 2010, Peppermint Bars was awarded the contract to run all the official outdoor bar sites at Nottinghill Carnival. The event which attracts over a million people on the August Bank holiday weekend was a resounding success and returns in 2011 complete with a soundstage and cocktails. In addition to this Red Bull appointed us to run their bar next to the Rap Attack stage. The event was a huge success – “Just want to say what a great job Steve and the team did with this outdoor bars setup. It was a pleasure to work with such a professional and hard working team. The overall event was a great success for Red Bull and created excellent awareness of Red Bull Cola throughout the carnival. Having fun loving bar staff, serving premium drinks helped make this happen. I look forward to working with you all in the near future.” (Ben Kendall – Red Bull Marketing)

GLADE FESTIVAL

After escalating costs, the event was cancelled in 2010 – but returns in 2011 at a brand new site with new partners and impetus.

“We are thrilled to be able to say that the Glade will be back in 2011. The festival is being revolutionised yet stripped back to its shiny grass roots…half the capacity that it was in the last few years and getting back to its original spirit but with a big step forward creatively, musically and artistically. We’ve been dying to let everyone know that it is definitely here again and with everything that’s happened we’ve had to ensure that we’ve got something to excite, that we can make happen and that will be a true celebration of life, music and art. We now can. Half the battle was finding the right home for the festival and we really have. We’ve found a belter…proper English parkland where we can do our thing…trees everywhere! The Glade is back…!”

CAMP BESTIVAL

Camp Bestival (Bestival’s Sister event) returned to Lulworth Castle in Dorset. Set in an idyllic setting in the Dorset countryside the event continues to be huge success and cemented its future for years to come with Best Family Festival for the 2nd year in a row at the coveted UK Festival Awards. We provided a colourful mix of cocktail bars, outdoor bars and mass-service outdoor bars throughout the weekend.

SECRET GARDEN PARTY

The Secret Garden Party has grown a loyal, eclectic and fun following in its history to date and this year the event sold out well before they opened the gates. Cocktails are always a popular with this crowd and we didn’t disappoint – especially our head mixologist’s “secret” Bloody Mary recipe – it was the talking point of the weekend and certainly helped with the hangovers! As well as the main outdoor bars we also built the Aspalls Cyder Barn and provided a rum bar on a pirate ship in the middle of the lake (which was only accessible via canoe-water-taxi) and was consequently exploded into a flurry of fireworks on Saturday night (after we vacated it we may add) and watched as 200 flamed-lanterns ascended into the night sky – it was quite a show. Next year’s antics are already being planned but we’re sworn to secrecy!

Ketchum Party, London

The client wanted to source a lively show piece to incorporate into an annual corporate event at their offices. They event was to thank their staff and also to invite clients to celebrate the success of the four sectors in their PR portfolio. In order to achieve this goal we supplied a bar with cocktails, staff and four specific colourful and tasty cocktails chosen by the client. Each cocktail name was altered slightly to associate it with the name of each one of the departments. We also supplied non alcoholic cocktails which were mixed on the spot, depending on the drinkers taste.

Magnum Photos, London

Internationally renowned agency Magnum Photos approached us to provide a corporate events bar at their Christmas party. In keeping with their line of work this was staged at the Photographers Gallery just off Leicester square. The venue was slightly challenging as it was in fact two entirely separate buildings which weren’t next to each other. Due to the fact that one venue was a shop space and the other a gallery we set up two self contained operations with bar structures and staff to serve drinks and run the front of house operation.


Gents, Just a quick note to say thank you to Patrick and the team for an awesome night! The site looked fantastic and the party and crowd were amazing! No one in Cowes could touch you on the night! Great to work with you as always and thank you again I cannot describe how great the site looked and the team looked after us without a hitch.
