At the weekend, events agency drp hosted its 35th anniversary celebrations at West Midlands Safari Park. More than 900 guests and clients gathered for the family fun day starting in the Park’s giant Tree Tops marquee, which was transformed into a VIP hospitality area. Refreshments including a bar and a BBQ were served throughout the day and guests had access to the park’s usual attractions, including all the rides and the safari bus tours.

In the evening, VIP guests enjoyed a drinks reception amongst the safari park’s dinosaur attraction before being transported to Spring Grove House, where the formal gala dinner and showcase finale was held, The finale included a live production show, live choir and fireworks show, and was followed by an after party on the lawn marquee complete with a DJ, dance floor and a set from drp’s very own band ‘The Possiblers’.

On Wednesday evening (24 June), London events venue 30 Euston Square celebrated its second birthday with a party inspired by the 30th anniversary of film franchise Back to the Future. More than 200 guests gathered to enjoy networking drinks and canapés such as Bloody Mary gazpacho with dry ice, and a dedicated ‘American diner’ food station - all in keeping with the Back to the Future theme. The event also raised more than £1,500 for a campaign to benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research.

On Tuesday (23 June) the newly renovated Wasing Estate in Berkshire held an open day to showcase its new events offering. Experiential events now on offer include immersive drumming, bushcraft and corporate wellness activities at the estate, which caters for meetings of all sizes from a board meeting for 20 to a festival for 20,000 people. Visitors to the open day took part in a drumming workshop and were treated to a lunch of crayfish sourced from the rivers on the estate, cooked by Peter Mandeno of Wok & Wine.
