Partridge Events have just designed and installed the first ever Jersey Royal Potato stand in the UK for Maltby Street Market! 

We were approached by Phipps Relations to collaborate on a brand activation for Jersey Royal, a key component in the growing of Jersey Royal potatoes is that “many farmers still use seaweed harvested from Jersey beaches as a natural fertilizer” (Jersey Royals). This being a key element we wanted to ensure the design incorporated the natural and organic feeling of the producing of the potato. 

We wanted the stand to look and feel rustic incorporating organic materials and traditional elements to make up the stand. Having a small footprint to design for, the main structure of the stand is a traditional and rustic cart. Every element of the stand had bespoke branding including branded wooden crates, this is where the Jersey Royal Potatoes were displayed and served creating a more organic and artistic feel.

This year is Jersey Royals 140th anniversary, with approximately 20 island farmers now growing Jersey Royal Potatoes. We organised the fabulous Michelin star chef Chris Gillard to cook and serve the Jersey Royal potatoes. The potatoes were steamed and served with fresh mint, butter and sea salt.  With Maltby Markets railway arches and decoration its become one one of the most picturesque markets in London and popular places to spend your weekend and you can always count on there being a high quality of traders. 

A fabulous way for team Partridge to spend their weekend! 🌞

Brighton Pier Proposal

What a fantastic way to start the Summer!

Partridge events were approached by an event organiser from Delhi, India. The brief was for the client to propose to his girlfriend on Brighton pier as the venue means a great deal to the couple. We were approached the week before the event was to take place and with the client living in another country, this had challenges in itself in regards to organisation as well as bringing everything together in such a short space of time. 
We found a romantic secluded spot at the end of the pier overlooking the sea and shore. Here Partridge Events set up a red carpet, VIP ropes and a table for two complete with bespoke floral cake and bottle of champagne, a private waiter to serve and a guitarist playing their favourite Beatles tunes.
The whole thing was beautifully captured by a waiting photographer and videographer. The client also had a hidden microphone so we were able to record the whole proposal without the Fiancée to be having the slightest idea.
A massive "YES!" was met with a huge cheer and round of applause from crowds on the pier. It was so lovely to be part of this special moment in this couple's future together.

If you'd like to plan an event for a special occasion please do get in touch, we'd love to speak to you.

London Pride 2017

We were so happy to be invited back to work for Pride 2017 after the last one all the way back in 2007. Our brief was to transform the ‘map’ area and café in City Hall, London, for the mayors Pride Party.
This year the party also ran in conjunction with a photographic exhibition celebrating Pride.
 We drew our inspiration for the design from the official pride 2017 "Love Happens Here" logo.  So we brought the rainbow colours into all the décor. We worked alongside Ficklestix who created all the amazing floor vinyls and window vinyls currently on show in the cafe.  
It was a fabulous day and so lovely to work with the vibrant rainbow colours in such an incredible space to create the end result you see above and below.
We had a great team of Stylists and fantastic suppliers who helped pull everything together down to the tiniest detail and we couldn't have been prouder to have been part of it.  

Corporate Summer Festival

Our Brief was a “Summer Festival” Party for a corporate event in conjunction with our fabulous clients, events agency Yellowfish. The event brought two of the company’s offices together and celebrated a summer party with 700 guest of mixed ages.

We started with inspiration from the colours of the company’s logo. Within the event we produced unique graphics and the set was constructed from bespoke colour pallets. We wanted to bring a rustic festival element to the event whilst bringing in glamorous and fun focus points. Wooden pallets, shimmer walls and a one of the kind, live graffiti artist worked away whilst the guests enjoyed the event. We loved styling for this vibrant event which was hugely enjoyed by all guests.
