Here at INSYNC we love Christmas!
And it’s not just the twinkling lights, carol singers, nostalgic smells and presents under the tree.. oh no, the most wonderful time of year means we get to dream up all sorts of cool and crazy fun for our clients and ensure their annual bash is the talk of the team for years to come.
Read on for our five point guide to creating your perfect party…
FIRST… YOU’LL NEED AN AMAZING VENUE
London is home to so many incredible event locations and over the years we’ve worked with hundreds of the biggest and best established venues, as well as constantly being on the lookout for the freshest, most unique underground spots and meanwhile spaces.
In addition to offering a free tailored venue search, we have key dates held at our pick for the coolest parties this year. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.
SECOND… CONJURE UP A UNIQUE THEME
Designing bespoke events is our forte and we relish the chance to create beautiful scenographic environments and curate amazing performance concepts. Talk to us about what you have in mind and we can plan something incredible together.
To help get the creative juices flowing we’ve also been working on some unique themes for you to choose from this year…
TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED
In commemoration of his 100th birthday this year, we will bring the great storyteller Roald Dahl’s imagination to life, welcoming guests into a fantastically immersive world which will draw on some of his most well loved adventures and characters.. with some twists along the way..
LOST IN SHINJUKU
Experience the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, a modern metropolis of neon lights and pop up shops. After being welcomed by our Hello Kitty concierge, sushi chefs will wow you with their knife skills as aerial ninjas walk above on slack lines. Guests can try their hand at sumo wrestling, ‘live’ arcade games and the pop up Kawai karaoke room before dancing the night away with the Harajuku girls.
HOUSE OF PIERROT
Enter into the early Victorian era and be wowed by a diverse array of performance based on the great pantomime acts of old including clowning, mime and ballet, and surrounded by exotic set pieces evocative of folklore and fairytales. We can tailor elements to your company and even write key characters such as the CEO into the script!
Lose yourself in a psychedelic night of kaleidoscopic colour and geometric design. Celebrating all things gloriously neon, iridescent, rainbow and holographic and featuring incredible projection, repeated pattern and light installations, this is Christmas in hyper-colour!
THIRD…TAKE YOUR GUESTS ON A JOURNEY
“Tell me, I’ll forget; show me, I’ll remember; involve me and I will understand”
For a truly memorable event you should engage guests at every stage, from the moment they receive the invite or are greeted outside, be sure to create excitement and intrigue.
Giving your event a narrative with immersive entertainment allows people to transcend their every day roles, giving rise to shared emotions and providing a common talking point, regardless of whether you are the CEO or new intern!
We have crafted many different events over the years and are experts at the small details guest remember for a long time
FOURTH… BE SURE TO FILL THEIR BOOTS
Great food and drink is of course a given, but it can also provide a serious talking point if done in an interesting and innovative way. We are always exploring new ways to surprise and delight through integrating it into the narrative of the night and pushing the boundaries of flavour.
Playing with the pudding element is a popular way to inject fun and wonder while still offering a hearty traditional Christmas meal. Why not offer an interactive feasting tableau laden with a sumptuous spread of unusual treats and an inhaleable egg nog…
LASTLY GIVE THEM SOMETHING UNEXPECTED…
A PRE-PARTY SURPRISE
Start the party early and treat your team to an in office pamper & styling experience to really set the mood. Our professional stylists will pop up hair and make up stations as well as a glitter bar offering face and body art to suit your theme.. your guests will be pimped and preened and ready to party!
An amazingly versatile dance troupe with a difference, they offer a spectacular stage show and walkabout performance, inviting guests to get involved on the dance floor and creating custom costumes, characters and dance routines to fit in with any party theme. Often the highlight of the night.
Very much a zeitgeist trend, why not add the element of surprise and intrigue to your event by creating one or several secret hidden rooms containing a host of activities – performance led experiences such as a clandestine gambling den, interactive game show, flash tattoo parlour, photo scene or just for fun – an adult ball bit or twister room.
A personal touch to end the evening, present your guests with a custom goody bag to take home, full of memorabilia to reference the theme. These could also be tailored to each guest with a personalised gift – a great alternative to Secret Santa!
