ALTHORP ESTATE, NORTHAMPTONSHIRE
Leading Destination Management Company, 2BUK, worked with a premium US brand to organise an incredible week-long experience for four hundred team members. As production partners we created a series of events alongside 2BUK, the grandest of which was a day long ‘quintessentially English experience’ at Althorp Estate; the home of Charles Spencer, brother of Princess Diana, and the 9th Earl Spencer.
Over four days we constructed large scale event elements, which included numerous external structures, across the grounds of the over 500-year-old estate. The detail delivered extended not just to the construction of bespoke bars and stages but to the sourcing of four hundred unique pieces of vintage furniture from across the UK. Further we produced an event film for the client to extend the impact of the event.
The day's activities included croquet on the West Lawn, archery, clay pigeon shooting and falconry. Guests were also able to watch local Northamptonshire cricket teams play, enjoy whiskey and cigar tastings, explore Althorp House and see the Diana, Princess of Wales exhibition with exclusive images by Mario Testino.
