The Sound & Light Hire Company Provide Event Production to Corporate Christmas Party at Oaks Farm

Just 10 miles from London and a stone’s throw from Croydon and Bromley is the spectacular events venue, Oaks Farm. Set against a backdrop of rolling hills and rural beauty, this building offers a range of rooms and suites for event organisers to choose from.

Our client had chosen “The Barn” as their setting for their company’s Christmas party in December of last year. With dark wooden beams and a blend of modern décor and original architectural detailing, we agree that it was a perfect location for a celebration of this nature. 

As a long-time event production partner to Oaks Farm, we got the call when the client booked in this relatively large-scale party. The venue quickly put us in touch with the client, and once we had discussed their options over the phone, we arrived at the venue the morning of the party to set everything up. 

Event Production Supplied to Surrey Events Venue for Corporate Christmas Party 

The first job we had on our hands was to transform the already spectacular barn into something more befitting of the  “Winter Wonderland” theme. We started by wrapping fairy lights around the transverse beams. We then sourced fake winter foliage (such as holly and mistletoe etc.), which we wrapped in the same manner, spaced roughly a foot apart from the lighting pattern.  

With the beams decorated and looking magnificent, we then commandeered one of the corners of the room to put up the Christmas tree, decorate it, and set up the snow machine to cover the area in the white stuff.  

Last on the more decorative side of our event production brief was the mood lighting. We set up two banks of battery-powered venue uplighters (one for each side of the room) and programmed them to emit a shade of blue that makes the entire room feel much more wintery. We are always amazed at how much difference these inexpensive lighting fixtures can make, and they more than did the trick once again. 

Professional Sound Equipment and Disco Lighting Hire Provided to Surrey Christmas Party

With the room now transformed, it was time to take care of the technical requirements for live entertainment. The client had booked a DJ for the after-dinner dancing, so we liaised with her to find out what she needed in terms of sound equipment. 

In the end, we ended up supplying a set of Pioneer DJ decks, a LED DJ booth, starlit backdrops, and a professional-quality sound system made up of d&b audiotechnik equipment, a brand that is widely regarded as the best in the industry. 

On the lighting side, we supplied and rigged a range of disco lighting fixtures (which included a couple of laser machines) along a small truss. Lastly, we finished by suspending an enormous glitter ball from the ceiling to add a touch of nostalgia. 

Once we had checked and rechecked all of the equipment, it was time to head out and leave the staff to enjoy their well-deserved night off. When we returned in the early hours, it was clear that everyone had enjoyed a fantastic night, and our event production had really come into its own once darkness had fallen.
