ITV Christmas Parties 2014

The Magic of Christmas

OLD BILLINGSGATE, LONDON | LEEDS TOWN HALL, LEEDS |EMIRATES OLD TRAFFORD CRICKET CLUB, MANCHESTER

The Brief

Among the highlights of the 2014 Christmas season was a particularly ambitious brief from ITV. We were asked to deliver festive parties across three cities, all on the same evening. In total, there would be 3000 guests, each expecting to experience a magical Winter Wonderland. Working from their initial ideas, it was very much about creating a traditional white Christmas for everyone.

Thank you Alice, everything went very well across all three locations. To echo what Stephen said, its been a pleasure working with you, we can totally trust you to deliver and the dressing was a roaring success across the board.

THE DELIVERY

London’s event took place at Old Billingsgate, while two other teams travelled to Leeds Town Hall and Manchester’s Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Club. Each venue was transformed with twinkling trees, mounds of soft white snow and enchanting winter backdrops. Fragrant pine trees, tall ice-white branches, and expertly designed birch trunk poseur tables all enhanced the wintery forest landscape.

The response

December 2014 was an incredibly busy period, producing over 70 events in the most prestigious and well-known venues. We rose to the occasion – and the success of the ITV parties was testament to our teams ability to co-ordinate multiple events simultaneously.

It was a pleasure to work with the ITV team again, creating three beautiful events across the UK.
