10 things to do to get the best from your party planner
Our industry is one which is totally dependent on power but there are still ways that we can reduce the impact we have on the environment. Here at APS, we always think carefully about the implications of our actions with regards to waste, the environment and climate change.
Those lovely people at Breakthrough Learning have sent us a "thank-you" message and an update on the success of the charity ball that they held - we'd like to share it with you!
"Thank you very much to you and your team for setting up the lighting for our ball on the 28th September, it looked wonderful.
Easthampstead Park is a Grade II listed Victorian mansion built in a Jacobean style and is used as a stunning venue for weddings, conferences, meetings, parties and corporate events. Our close partners, Chordiem, were asked to design and manage a corporate event for a finance company at the mansion and they asked us to light up the building.
The mansion at Easthampstead Park is a large building so we knew we needed a light that was powerful enough to do the job and, if it's out and out power you want, the SGM P10 is the way to go. Once lit, the venue looked like this -
A beautiful marina overflowing with exquisite yachts and a crowd all waiting in expectation of the start of the Monaco Grand Prix - how could his possibly be improved? By lighting it up with some spectacular Proteus Hybrids, that's how!
Breakthrough Learning is a charity working with children and adults to develop their learning and thinking skills, helping them to succeed in the rapidly changing 21st century. They also help people understand their own emotions and those of others, giving them the tools they need to engage with society. When people are able to control their thinking and their emotions, they become more effective learners. The charity is based in Reading, Berkshire and has projects throughout the UK
As a romantic setting, Stoke Park is hard to beat. Set in the glorious countryside of Stoke Poges in Buckinghamshire, this gorgeous country house hotel, spa and golf course is a favourite place for those celebrating Valentine's Day. To make it even more special, APS were asked to light up the the building in various shades with a few of our SGM P10s and highlight the tower on the top of the cupola with our incredibly powerful Proteus Hybrids.
In the beautiful Cotswold village of Upper Slaughter we were asked to do something a bit different. The client had a saxophonist booked as part of the evening's entertainment and wanted a dramatic finale to his set.
Highclere Castle, the home of The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon (and, of course, Downton Abbey), was also the location for the launch of the new Highclere Castle London Dry Gin. The specially invited guests were treated to a drinks reception with dancing girls, a carousel and various entertainers (like the human statue, below!)
Working with renowned artist, Stuart Melrose, we designed and built this incredible attraction. The aim was to create an installation where the surrounding environment reacted to the actions of people. To do this, we obtained a High-Striker machine and heavily modified it to run on batteries and with wireless data connections to the Thames Tower building. The building itself was filled with individually controlled lights on every floor that would show the results of each ‘test of strength’.
