As guests took their seats for the wedding ceremony, and as the bridal party proceeded way down the aisle, the soulful vocalist Katy Ellis performed a delicate and heartfelt live soundtrack to the occasion.

    Following the heartfelt exchange of vows – accompanied by some emotional tears – family and friends were greeted with a glass of fizz, served by a beautiful Champagne Dress Hostess adorned in sparkles, pearls, and feathers. With confetti in hand, guests stepped into the venue’s picturesque grounds, entertained by the melodies of a talented Harpist. 

    Aside from incorporating ‘something new’ and ‘something blue’ into her day, Lauren had brilliantly mastered ‘something old’. Ready to crash the wedding and make a memorable appearance were our adorable Baby Dinosaurs and mischievous Raptor. These prehistoric animatronic creatures captivated both children and adults, and even managed to sneak in some of the photographs with their cheeky antics.

    The wedding reception delighted guests with a night filled with sensational live music. Katy Ellis welcomed the newlyweds to the dancefloor with a stunning rendition of DJ Sammy’s ‘Heaven (Candlelight Mix)’ for their first dance. Lauren made a dazzling entrance in a sparkling surprise second dress, the first dance tempo hastened, and the party started!

    Katy Ellis continued to amaze with her tribute to Taylor Swift, leaving everyone thoroughly entertained and singing along! The incomparable Popwork graced the stage, guaranteeing a packed dancefloor and an electric atmosphere. Our incredible Mirror Men ensured that everyone had a dancing partner! The entertainment drew to a close with a Soul and Motown set performed by the talented Kurtis Ray White.

  6. Winter Wonderland at The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway

    Leave a Comment

    We were delighted to support our client with their 2022 Christmas entertainment, creating a beautiful Winter Wonderland!

    The Brief

    Our client approached us for assistance in creating a magical Christmas experience for their visitors. Their objective was to provide an immersive and interactive Christmas experience tailored to families during the festive season.

    The Challenges

    Our project entailed an extended installation, occupying a large space in the venue for the duration of a month. Meeting all our client’s requirements was our top priority. We upheld this commitment from the beginning of the creative process to the actual installation of the Winter Wonderland.

    Our client has an incredible team of volunteers who were dedicated to enhancing the event – including none other than Father Christmas himself! Coordinating our performers on a precise schedule was crucial to ensuring the smooth-running of the event – and avoiding any disruptions to the Christmas magic!

    Additionally, we faced the challenge of crafting a script for our performers. It needed to be engaging and provide an immersive and magical experience for all attendees.

    The Solutions

    During the creative process of designing the perfect installation, we conducted a site visit to establish the restrictions and possibilities of the venue. We generated a wealth of imaginative ideas, complete with concept images and detailed proposals. This proactive approach instilled confidence in our client and provided them with a vivid understanding of the envisioned outcome.

    We participated in a series of creative meetings to ensure we were aligned with our client’s ideas for the event. These meetings allowed us to fine-tune our concepts, ensuring they resonated with our client’s objectives and vision.

    To ensure the seamless execution of the event, maintaining clear and effective communication between our performers and our client’s volunteers was important. This would be a fantastic opportunity to collaborate to create Christmas magic! We prioritised the establishment of strong relationships and building a rapport that instilled confidence in our client, the volunteers, and our performers.

    We submitted our script for approval, and remained open to their feedback, readily implementing any necessary adjustments.

    The Results

    We created a magical Winter Wonderland at The Keighley and Worth Railway! Our enchanting Winter Wonderland trail installation, and mischievous elf performers, created a magical Christmas experience for families visiting the railway.

    Between the 24th of November and 26th of December 2022, The Keighley and Worth Railway exhibition shed was transformed into a stunning Winter Wonderland Trail. Families were guided by our elf performers to embark upon a festive rail journey.

    winter wonderland

    We worked our venue dressing magic within the venue’s exhibition shed, transforming the space into a Winter Wonderland! We used white camouflage netting, snowstorm draping, artificial snow flocking, and an array of wintry props. These included flying reindeer, a moose, flocked Christmas trees, and charming woodland animals.

    winter wonderland

    Upon arrival, families were guided through our Winter Wonderland by our performers to find hidden golden tickets for their admission to the Elf Explorer. This was a festive journey upon a beautiful steam train. Families would then enjoy a theatrical journey complete with performances by our elf characters. Father Christmas himself joined the journey, and distributed gifts to children.

    winter wonderland

    Our installation garnered fantastic feedback from guests! The success of the month-long event led our client to eagerly rebook for 2023, and we are determined to make this year’s event even more special. Our Winter Wonderland trail will be expanded to include a spectacular Santa’s Workshop, promising an even more magical experience. We are excited to spread the joy of Christmas once again at The Keighley and Worth Railway in Christmas 2023.

  8. Planning a Soul Music Festival with Venue16

    Leave a Comment

    Big Foot Events were thrilled to work with our client to create a one-day soul and funk music festival.

    The Brief

    Our client reached out to us for support in organising their biggest event of the year – a summer music festival. They wanted to curate an incredible line-up of renowned funk and soul musicians. They hoped to captivate a local crowd and also draw in visitors from further afield. With aspirations of hosting a large-scale event, they were determined to ensure a high volume of ticket sales. They sought our live music expertise and event planning experience to assist with bringing their event to life!

    The Challenges

    Our client had allocated a substantial budget for this event from their entertainment calendar. Our goal was to guide them towards securing extraordinary acts that would not only deliver exceptional performances, but also align with their budgetary constraints. In orchestrating this high-budget event, we understood expectations ran high – from the client themselves, to the artists, and, ultimately, to the customers. Our client had specific performers in mind, and we sourced gifted artists who could fit within the allocated budget. Our primary objective was to create an offering that would resonate with our client’s core audience. This would ensure robust ticket sales and a memorable event. Instead of just featuring a single act, we aimed to craft a sensational line-up of performers to appeal to a range of guests. We aimed to keep the summer vibes going all evening!

    Given that the chosen acts were high-profile performers, each with their own unique requirements, meticulous event management was essential. Once the performers were selected and contracted, our next task was the marketing strategy. Our goal was to not only sell tickets but also create excitement and anticipation surrounding the event.

    The Solutions

    At Big Foot Events, our events team possesses an impressive expertise in live music. With an extensive roster of talented artists at our disposal, we excel at selecting the ideal acts to elevate our client’s events. Our team’s wealth of experience equips us with an in-depth understanding of our chosen artists and their specific needs. This allows us to expertly curate line-ups that not only meet, but exceed our clients’ expectations. This sets the stage to guarantee their event’s success.

    To drive ticket sales, we implemented a collaborative marketing strategy. There was active involvement from our team, our client, and the performers themselves, working together to maximise ticket sales. Our client played a pivotal role in promoting the event, using their resources to generate buzz and anticipation. The artists actively collaborated with us by reaching out to their fan bases. They recorded personalised videos, engaged with their followers on social media, and worked hand in hand with us to enhance the event’s visibility.

    The Results

    On the 8th of July 2023, Venue16 hosted Check Out The Groove: Summer Soul Vibes. This extraordinary event was a perfect celebration of music, dance, and the vibrant summer season.

    We designed a fantastic line-up of some of the most prominent names in funk and soul. The stage came alive with performances by renowned artists such as Jaki Graham, Loose Ends, Odyssey, and the incomparable Craig Charles. This combination of talents ensured an unforgettable celebration of soulful rhythms and groovy vibes that left the audience captivated and dancing all evening!

    Our client received some fantastic feedback from happy guests on social media:

    ‘Had a fab time, so well organised thank you’ juliet_f66

    ‘Brilliant day/night… good to hear the classic old skool tunes… such a well organised local event… more please’ allibabba1

    ‘Really enjoyed it! Thank you! Hope to be back again soon!’ michelle_harryman

  • Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

    Megan Chungh – Park Hotel, Newcastle
  • I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.

    Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
  • We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.

    George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
  • It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.

  • Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.

  • The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
