Ramsay Health Care UK, June 2014

Some House & Garage In The Shed, Plus A Very Famous Bloke In Reception!

Uplighters Flames 1

If you’re a high-end party planner always looking to deliver bigger & better, who do you turn to when creating a trendy wine bar feel for a corporate weekender? Well the conference team at Ramsay Health Care put their trust in Showtime and we can safely say, we didn’t let them down!

Ramsay Health Care UK is one of the leading providers of independent hospital services in England, with a network of 32 acute hospitals across the country. Every year, their CEO gets the 200 Managers together for a full weekend of strategy, seminars & presentations. But don’t worry, it’s not all post-it notes & prawn sandwiches, as they still have some time to party each night and that’s where we came in.

Taking over the wonderfully exclusive golf lovers Grove Hotel (www.thegrove.co.uk) in Chandlers Cross for a long weekend, Ramsay asked us to deliver their all-important weekend ice-breaker in a venue space known as the ‘Potting Shed’. That name somewhat underplays the scale of the room as it is in fact a HUGE conservatory that would put most event spaces to shame! It was our job to make it look ‘inviting & comfy, yet funky and up tempo inside & out’ as Ramsay client Nicky told us.

We started, as ever, with a stripped back & minimalist DJ rig. Our plan was then to use loads of uplighters all over the room to bathe the space in chic décor lighting. This was then topped up with a set of flame effects to add extra visual interest. We also sprinkled in a few TVs to ensure that nobody missed a kick of the Uruguay v. England World Cup group game also scheduled for that night.

Right, that just leaves the tunes. It was time for Showtime Event’s very own ‘King of the Wine Bar’ DJ Fraudsta (aka Mark) to step up with some tight harmonic mixes to keep the party floor rocking. Of course he had to play some cheesy stuff too, but keep it current with some shots of up to date EDM dropped in to deliver that City wine bar vibe. Let’s put it this way, they certainly got some house & garage to go with the Potting Shed!

We checked in with the Ramsay CEO’s right-hand Nicky the next morning to update on the post- party feel good factor at breakfast. She told us ‘what an amazing night, you all judged it just right. The space looked fabulous and the tunes smashed it. I want to go dancing again now (but better have a full English first!). The whole team had a great night and are ready for the rest of the conference weekend. Thanks guys and stay available for next year’s event please.’ 

All in a job well done with the party people now well warmed up for the weekend of team-building. The only thing that let us down was England’s performance in the match, but then there’s no change there…

As we like to say, CEO & event manager happy, Ramsay Health Care happy, Showtime Events happy!

Why not get in touch and let us ‘do what we do’ for you too?

P.S. You forget to mention the famous bloke in reception, I hear you cry! Well all we can say is we knew him and you’d know him too, but unfortunately we can’t name him. Sorry!
