Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week
We own and operate one of Cowes Week’s official event enclosures and Marina: Peppermint Shepards Wharf. Since we took it over in 2004 it has been transformed from a sleepy boatyard into a bustling events space during Cowes week and the “crew’s choice” for post-racing entertainment. The site boasts several bars, a trade village, restaurant and nightclub open for 8 days during the world’s largest Yachting Regatta, a must in the UK’s summer events calendar.
Pin Up Bowling Lanes, Manchester
Pin Up is a pop up 1950’s boutique tenpin bowling lane venue, complete with American diner, cocktail bar and dance floor. Pin Up visited the heart of Manchester in 2011 and welcomed the likes of Norman Jay and Alexis Taylor behind the decks.
Artemis Transat Race Village
Based around Plymouth’s historic Barbican area in Sutton Harbour and neighbouring Queen Anne’s Battery, the Race Village was home to the entire race fleet in the week building up to the start of the Artemis Transat Race. We built and managed the double decked race village structure on behalf of OC Events – home to the crew, press and hospitality throughout the event, which attracted more than 100,000 people.

The Moose Bar
The inaugural Moose Bar took shape at the foot of Canary Wharf’s One Canada Square and served the adjacent ice rink and some of the 200,000 professionals working around Canary Wharf and the City of London. The Moose created a unique log-cabin, warm and inviting atmosphere in the heart of Canary Wharf, with acoustic music and entertainment throughout the week. It was a huge success, growing from year to year. Click here to enter the Moose Bar mini-site
